I really enjoyed the second installment of this series. Ms. Barrett does a great job of developing these characters and we are getting to know the townspeople even better and the relationship between Tricia and her sister is hilarious and relatable. I appreciate that there is a logical reason why Tricia gets involved in the investigation and this makes the story more believable. Plus there are some great recipes at the back that are mentioned in the story. Grab this one and curl up on a rainy day. You won't be disappointed.

So far, this is proving to be quite an enjoyable, fun cozy mystery series. I can't say I like it quite as much as the "Murder, She Wrote" books, but it definitely has its own merits. I love the setting of Stoneham with all its bookstores. What an ideal place that would be to live!

The relationship between Tricia and her sister, Angelica, seemed to develop into a closer, easier one this time around. They didn't butt heads as much as they did in the first one, although there were still times when I found Tricia to be just a little too snarky and mean-spirited where her sister was concerned. An example was when Tricia basically mocked Ange's attempts at writing a cookbook instead of giving her support and encouragement. But, all in all, Tricia seemed more likeable and sensitive to other people's feelings in this book than she was in the first.

I'm not sure how I feel about the relationship between Russ and Tricia. There really didn't seem to be a lot of zing or passion to it, and, frankly, I found it a little boring. Russ, as editor of the local paper, seemed more interested in pumping Tricia for information about the murder than in romancing her. And, Tricia herself didn't appear to harbour a lot of romantic feelings toward him, either. It was all rather blase on both their parts, but maybe their relationship will develop into a better one in the future.

The mystery was a good one and kept me guessing right to the end as to who the murderer was. The motive was a little weak in my opinion, but otherwise the plot moved along at a good pace and was interesting.

I'm looking forward to reading the next installment in this series.

This is the second book in the Booktown Mystery series.

Tricia Miles, the owner of Haven't Got a Clue, holds a book signing and the author is found dead in her store.
Sheriff Adams is not doing enough to solve this crime which leads Tricia to take matters in her own hands.

I really enjoy this series. It's funny, light, and quite entertaining.

Mystery bookseller Tricia Miles is back in "Bookmarked for Death," by Lorna Barrett, the second in her series about the town of Stoneham, New Hampshire, a village that's reinvented itself by opening numerous specialty and rare bookstores, bringing in tourists from nearby NYC by the hundreds. When Tricia hosts a book signing by a best-selling mystery author who has roots in Stoneham, little does she know the mayhem she's invited into her life: the author is soon murdered, in Tricia's shop's bathroom no less, and the clues are thin on the ground - which itself is covered, outside at least, in Canada Goose guano. Sheriff Wendy Adams is only too happy to close Tricia's store as a crime scene and it's up to Tricia to solve the murder herself, if only to be able to open up her shop again.... I've already mentioned this series this month, as I bought a 3-books-in-1 omnibus edition and feel beholden to read it through; but I "solved" the crime once the third or fourth new character was introduced, because it clearly wasn't who the clues pointed to. And a crucial plot point hangs on the "aberration" of a grown-up American who doesn't drive! As a non-driver myself, this offends me, as does this passage, heading to an unfolding crime scene: '"That's only two blocks away!....Come on!"....out the door, running for her car....She'd hopped in, had the engine revving and the wipers going when Russ finally slammed his front door and jogged to the car...."' Er, running to the site would have been faster, idiots! I'm going to read the third in the series because they're not entirely dreadful, but I'm happy that my mother will be visiting soon and I'll hand the book off to her and get it out of my house. Which is to say, don't bother.

and it happened :) I HAVE TO catch up on all the remaining ones in the series, that I haven't read yet :) one thing that bothers me in the characters a bit, is that they tend to end "friendships" between adult people so quickly, sometimes based on very vague facts... then again - maybe it is just me - I know I have to have more facts than just a hint or suspicion to be serious about ending a longtime friendship :)
Total page turner - great cosy mystery series!
