“I really enjoy Tricia's character. She is strong-willed and owns a mystery bookstore, but she also has a good heart and takes good care of her employees.
However, the opening of this book is a little different from the other two. Tricia is demanding that her college pal, Pam, get out of her apartment. Immediately. And it's not in the usually demur Tricia way either.
It wasn't a shift in the character, which is what I feared she was going for, it was a humanistic moment of frustration. And Tricia has every right to be upset with her college pal.
But...Pam turns up dead and all fingers point at no one in particular. At least, not yet. But Tricia feels it is her duty to help solve the murder of Pam. And of course that puts her in danger; otherwise, we wouldn't have a story.
One way to describe this series (and my love for it): imagine if Nancy Drew grew up and owned a mystery bookstore. This series makes me want to build my own Booktown. How awesome would that be?!
If you enjoy a cozy mystery, you need to add the Booktown mysteries to your reading list.”
