Overview
If anyone has the formula for a frolicking fun mystery down pat, it s Lorna Barrett ("Roundtable Reviews"), the "New York Times" bestselling author whose latest Booktown Mystery finds amateur sleuth Tricia Miles unexpectedly reunited with a man from a chapter of her life she closed long ago
Stoneham, New Hampshire, is a haven to bookstores, including Tricia s own mystery shop, Haven t Got a Clue, but is sadly lacking in bed and breakfasts. Pippa and Jon Comfort s Sheer Comfort Inn opens its doors to the public in a week and the couple has offered some locals a free night as a trial run.
But what should have been a pleasant overnight stay for Tricia becomes a nightmare when she makes two startling discoveries: Pippa s murdered body in the backyard, and the fact that her husband Jon is actually Harry Tyler, a man Tricia loved and believed dead for nearly twenty years.
Now Harry is the prime suspect, but Tricia doesn t believe him capable of murder, regardless of her own feelings toward him. And even though Harry s led a life of lies, Tricia s learning that Pippa had her share of secrets that some people may have not wanted revealed

At the outset of Agatha-finalist Barrett’s unsatisfying sixth Booktown mystery (after 2011’s Sentenced to Death), Tricia Miles, owner of the Haven’t Got a Clue bookstore in Stoneham, N.H., who’s been invited by her sister, cookbook author Angelica, to share in a free night at the new Sheer Comfort Inn, stumbles across the body of Pippa Comfort, one-half of the couple running the inn. Tricia soon becomes aware that Jon Comfort, Pippa’s husband, is not what he seems, and begins receiving disquieting packages from someone apparently well versed about her own past. Police chief Grant Baker, Tricia’s boyfriend, is inclined to think that Tricia isn’t an innocent bystander to the crime, while Bob Kelly, Angelica’s former boyfriend, may be involved in shady dealings. Situations that strain credulity and a culprit who appears without sufficient foreshadowing will disappoint some readers, but series fans should enjoy the colorful smalltown characters and the cliffhanger ending. Agent: Jessica Faust, BookEnds. (July)
