Just when things are getting back to normal in Booktown, Tricia and Angelica have their lives turned upside down by a shocking visitor from their past on this recent entry in Lorna Barrett’s New York Times bestselling series.
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 within the murder of a woman along with her own scandalous past. Even Tricia’s faith within 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 creator Steven Richardson? Is it a accident that he arrived for a book signing just before the crime or that the victim used to be found with a signed copy of his recent bestseller?
From merlot to murder, Tricia is made up our minds to clear the circle of relatives name before every other body shows up and ruins Stoneham’s first—and highly anticipated—wine and jazz festival.
