The fourth installment in the Lorna Barrett Booktown Mystery series. Very good read - one of the best cozy mysteries that is currently being published. Each book leaves you wanting more. This book goes deeper into developing a number of characters, while introducing a few more. The next installment will be published in February 2011, entitled "A Crafty Killing"

Trisha, owner of the Haven't Got a Clue bookstore,(being the main character) becomes involved in the detective work surrounding a murder victim, much to the dissatisfaction of the local police Captain - who is also a quesi-suitor of Trishas'. Lurking in the background - and apparently stalking Trisha - is a past boyfriend - this small towns' newspaper editor. This unsolved murder takes you right up to the very last pages of the book as it wraps up all the unraveled ends and solves the crime.
