Oh, how I love Stoneham, New Hampshire, AKA Booktown, It has a picturesque setting and has some quirky and charming characters and with and another murderer lurking in the town, no one is safe. Chamber of Commerce receptionist, Betsy Dittmeyer keeps to herself and has some deep, dark secrets to hide, she was not very well liked with some of the residents in Booktown either. It is really no shock that she is found suddenly crushed by a falling bookshelf. Could her secrets be the reason why someone wanted her dead?

Angelica owns many businesses in Booktown and wears many hats, her latest hat she is the newly elected Chamber of Commerce President and also as Betsy's boss she and her sister, Tricia, Owner of Haven't Got A Clue, a vintage mystery bookstore in Booktown feel obligated to help solve the murder. If that isn't enough Trisha is rocked to the core after hearing a family secret of her own and also with her ex-husband and the police chief, Baker competing for her undying love and affections but her priority lies in finding Betsy's murderer.

This is the very first cozy mystery series I have ever read and it's very near and dear to my heart and it will always be a favorite. Since then I have never turned back from reading cozy mysteries. The characters are very endearing and I love  revisiting them year after year. Book Clubbed is filled with surprises and a few tears, and you can never forget the murder and mayhem. This  is the one book in the series you will never forget and i'm happy to say i'm caught up on this one. If your starting out reading cozy mysteries or if you haven't already done so I highly recommend this series as I always have to everyone, Can't wait until the next in the series !!!


  1. I'm so glad you enjoyed the book. Thank you for the lovely review.
