A dead receptionist and dark family secrets will keep readers hooked on the latest Booktown Mystery. The charm of this series is in the entrepreneurial spirit of the protagonist and her sister who run their own businesses while dealing with relationship issues and solving mysteries. Although Tricia’s love life is becoming slightly awkward, the strength in this entertaining and suspenseful mystery lies with the colorful secondary characters and the strong plotting.
The winter weather may be keeping customers inside and away from mystery bookstore Haven’t Got A Clue, but that doesn’t mean owner Tricia Miles doesn’t have her own mystery to solve. Tricia’s sister, Angelica, won the presidency for the Chamber of Commerce and along with her position came a cranky, judgmental receptionist, Betsy Dittmeyer. When Betsy takes a bathroom break and ends up squashed under an overturned bookshelf, Tricia and Angelica know they have a murder to solve. It turns out Betsy was hiding many secrets, including her penchant for hoarding and stealing funds from her employer. Can the sisters uncover the evidence buried deep in Betsy’s stuff before a killer gets to it first? (PRIME CRIME, Jul., 320 pp., $25.95)
