Publisher's Summary

Mystery bookstore owner Tricia Miles learns that nothing kills a good party like a murder in the latest entry in The New York Times best-selling Booktown Mysteries.

Tricia Miles, mystery bookstore owner and amateur sleuth, throws a housewarming cocktail party in her new apartment and has cooked all the food by herself - quite a feat for someone who previously couldn't boil water. Then one of her guests is poisoned and dies. Tricia's left to wonder if her cooking is to blame or if there's something much more sinister at play. Either way, Tricia's once again in hot water with her ex-lover, Chief Baker.

Meanwhile, the charming town of Stoneham is being disrupted by a vandalism crime wave. It's the hot topic in the race for Chamber of Commerce president which sees Tricia pitted against two bitter rivals. With all that's going on, can she find the killer before she's the next item on the menu?

5 stars

Lorna Barrett has done it again. I love the direction in which the story is moving. Tricia is still jinxed, but, happiness is on the way. The mystery was well developed and very interesting. All of the supporting characters are engaging and contribute to the story to keep the series fresh. I can't wait to see what happens next.

Good writer however

I enjoy Lorna Barrett writing and this is the first time I have listened to the books. I will not listen to another book of this series. Karen White's reading is flat and annoying to hear. I am unable to finish listening to the book and it is only the first chapter.

Honest, thrilling & clever

After the huge bombshell ending of the last book I wasn’t sure how the story could continue. But wow, this book was even better. There are many changes in everyone’s lives, and many that genuinely shocked me. What I love about this series is that it’s realistic. All the stories & plots feel authentic, and this isn’t a series where everything magically works out. It’s honest, it’s gritty & it’s real life.
The mystery was so beautifully woven with twists you’ll never see coming. Bravo Ellery, this was another home run!
