Tricia Miles is celebrating the opening anniversary of her bookstore, Haven't Got a Clue by inviting a best selling local author Zoe Carter for a book signing of her new book. Her loyal assistants, Ginny Wilson and William Everett, are there for the event as is her less welcome sister, Angelica, but Angelica means well and loves her. As things are winding down, Zoe can't be found. As Tricia starts to look for her to lock up, she finds Zoe strangled in the restroom. Sheriff Wendy Adams has no reason to love Tricia, having "stole" her boyfriend from her. She also has no reason to clear the crime scene in a hurry even knowing that Tricia, Ginny, Mr. Everett, and Miss. Marple depend on the book store for their livelihood. So it's up to Tricia to unravel the mystery that was Zoe Carter. In doing so, she found that her best friend in Stoneham, Nikki, to be a prime suspect, but Tricia also found that Nikki's birth mother still alive and writing librarian mysteries as Fiona Sample. Barrett supplied many twists and turns as well as mysteries within the mystery. All's well that ends well, and Bookmarked for Death ends very satisfactory indeed.

I have now read the first two books in the series. The books are good but not great. The police are portrayed as incompetent. Due to the rivalry between the heorine and the sheriff, no one on the police force can make any connections that are obvious. The rivalry is between the sheriff and Tricia, so why are the other policemen blind? This one repetitious theme drops my grading of the books. The rest of the story line is pretty good. Tricia is cocky in her "smarts" and "ability". She is quick to point out others faults, whether they are too nosy, incapable, annoying... At the same time, she possesses a lot of the qualities she finds irritating in others. The author doesn't let her get off easily when one of these qualities offend someone else or she makes a mistake. I like that. Tricia becomes easily identifiable with her fallocies. I'd like to see her continue to grow. She has already shown growth with her sister. She got a little too much credit at the end, but hey, she is the star of the book. :) I will definitely give the next book a try but I hope that the police department gets a clue or gets replaced.

    This is a cute mystery but not a great one.

    I like books about bookstores and libraries but this wasn't what I had thought it would be. Not a bad story but not good enough for me to want to read the first in the series at this time. Maybe later.

    Since I like cats, I saw the cover and bought it, having never read anything by this author before. I liked the small village setting, the tangled relationship between the sisters, and, of course, the cat. Nice story with a decent plot.

    So far...so good!

    So from I'm reading chapter three, and I have to say that it's getting good. So I can't wait until I finish the book, so that I can give my full review of the book.
