Murder is Binding

Tricia Miles has moved to the quite town of Stoneham, New Hampshire to open up a book store that features mysteries.

Moving from a bustling city life to a quite country life, Tricia is excited to finally achieve a dream.  The street is lined with other book stores that feature history and next door a cookbook store.  Life is great, until she finds Doris Gleason, the owner of the cookbook store dead.

With the sheriff is determined that Tricia is the killer, it is up to her to find the real killer.  When pamphlets are constantly found in books about a nudist camp, her sister, Angelica decides to come for a visit and the Mike Harris, the man that is running for selectman is calling her, "his girl", will Tricia find herself living one of the many mystery books that she has in her store?

My daughter and I both love a good, clean mystery.  She sent me the first three books in the series, "A Booktown Mystery", and I am hooked.  The author, Lorna Barrett, knows how to take the reader and plop you right down in the middle of Stoneham,New Hampshire.  She has given each of the characters such color, that you are almost sure that they are real.  I love when an author can write a book and as you read, you feel that you are a part of the story.  This is one of those authors.
I found that I could not put the book down.  I finished it in one day and looking forward to the next.  If you enjoy a good mystery that you can cuddle up with, then this is one for you.


  1. Thank you for the lovely review. I hope you'll give my new series a try, too. It's the Victoria Square Mysteries under the name Lorraine Bartlett. The first book, A Crafty Killing, will be released on February 1st. For an excerpt, check out my web site:

  2. I'm glad you liked it... I think every one is better than the one before and each one is great! I'm reading the 4th one right now. I'll be getting the new series also, so don't run out and preorder it.

  3. Sorry, Mandy, but mother pre-ordered the new series last night or rather earlier this morning while you were snoozing.
