Description
In the latest New York Times bestselling Booktown Mystery, amateur sleuth and bookstore owner Tricia Miles gets caught up in a local election that turns lethal . . .
It's November in Stoneham, New Hampshire, and time for the Chamber of Commerce elections. The long-standing Chamber president is being challenged by a former lover—Tricia's own sister, Angelica. Also throwing his hat in the ring is small business owner Stan Berry. Unfortunately, Stan isn't in the race for long.
When Stan is found murdered, his political rivals become suspects. Angelica is going to need more than a vote of confidence from her sister—she needs Tricia to clear her name so she can win the election.
Tricia soon uncovers a ballot box full of lies and betrayals, and a chamber full of people who had grudges against the victim. But were they serious enough to lead to murder? It's up to Tricia to pull the lever on a killer before it's curtains for someone else.

shortDescription
New York Times bestselling author Lorna Barrett delivers another compulsively page-turning Booktown Mystery in which amateur sleuth and bookstore owner Tricia Miles gets caught up in a local election that turns lethal…
 
It’s November in Stoneham, New Hampshire, and that means it’s time for the Chamber of Commerce elections. The race is already a bit heated, as the long-standing Chamber president is being challenged by a former lover—Tricia’s own sister, Angelica. Then local small business owner Stan Berry throws his hat in the ring.
 
Unfortunately, it’s not there for long when he’s found murdered in the Brookview Inn. The murder weapon is a brass letter opener belonging to the inn’s receptionist. Tricia knows there’s no way the receptionist is a killer. And when Angelica asks Tricia to help clear her name and win the election, she sees little choice except to start snooping.

        May 20, 2013
        In Barrett’s middling seventh Booktown mystery (after 2012’s Murder on the Half Shelf), Angelica Miles—cookbook author, cafe owner, and sister of mystery bookshop owner Tricia—decides to challenge her former boyfriend, Bob Kelly, in the upcoming election for president of the Stoneham, N.H., chamber of commerce. An unexpected contender for the position is sign store proprietor Stan Berry, but his campaign comes to a premature end when Tricia finds him in the local inn’s restroom, stabbed in the chest with a letter opener. Other complexities include Stan’s questionable choice of reading material as well as Tricia’s stormy interactions with her ex-husband, Christopher, who recently arrived in Stoneham; her erratic relationship with her boyfriend, police chief Grant Baker; and her confusing encounters with Will, Stan’s handsome and estranged son. Illogical behavior as well as the lack of clues to the perpetrator and alternative suspects early in the narrative mar the reader’s enjoyment. Agent: Jessica Faust, BookEnds.

        July 1, 2013
        A New Hampshire mystery bookstore owner uses all the knowledge she has gained from reading her wares to help solve a murder. Tricia Miles is surprised when her sister Angelica suddenly announces her candidacy for president of the Stoneham Chamber of Commerce. The longtime incumbent, Bob Kelly, owns oodles of local real estate and is also one of Angelica's former lovers. Another last-minute nominee is Stan Berry, who runs the Stoneham sign shop. Angelica wants to improve the attractive tourist destination; Stan wants to cut spending on everything. Before he gets the chance to stump for his ideas, Trisha finds him stabbed in the bathroom of the Brookview Inn, where the chamber is having a breakfast meeting. Trisha's boyfriend, Chief Baker of the Stoneham PD, is never happy when Tricia sticks her nose into his investigations (Murder On The Half Shelf, 2012, etc.), and his preoccupation with the health of his ex-wife has put a further strain on their relationship. Tricia's own ex-husband shows up in town seeking reconciliation. So does Stan Berry's son, who can certainly use the money his father left him. Although Tricia is getting ready for a busy Christmas season and supporting a friend who is soon to marry the handsome manager of the Brookview Inn, she still finds time to snoop. But she may not be pleased with what she learns. Barrett continues her winning ways with another mystery chock full of interesting suspects and a surprising denouement.
