Tricia Miles, mystery bookstore owner and amateur sleuth, is in for a surprise when her ne’er-do-well father, John, comes to town—and promptly becomes a prime suspect in the murder of a woman with her own scandalous past. Even Tricia’s faith in the old man is shaken when the Stoneham police break the news that her father is a known con man who has done jail time.

 But what about bestselling thriller author Steven Richardson? Is it a coincidence that he arrived for a book signing just before the crime or that the victim was found with a signed copy of his latest bestseller? From merlot to murder, Tricia is determined to clear the family name before another body shows up and ruins Stoneham’s first—and highly anticipated—wine and jazz festival.

My Review:

I never tire of a bookish premise of a Booktown Mystery by Lorna Barrett and I never tire of Tricia Miles finding yet another dead body. Tricia's new attitude towards food was refreshing considering all she ever ate in previous books was tuna salad sandwiches.

A cleverly plotted mystery, fast paced with heartwarming characters and heart breaking drama that had me crying. Unbearable parents that I would never wish for and family issues but could there be a promise of a brand new start?
