    Great fun & cozy read!

    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.

    Another Must Read

    Great characters and concept. If you like books you will love this series. A whole town filled with bookstores? I'd call that heaven. Throw in a mystery? Even better. Bravo, Lorna. Keep them coming!

    Another great read from Lorna Barrett!

    I enjoyed Murder is Binding so much that I pre-ordered this book. Stoneham, NH seems like such a nice little town - a tourist wonderland of books. Does life get better than a town of books???? NO!! <BR/>Lorna Barrett added a unique murder in Bookmarked for Death. Even at 2/3's of the way through the book I still had not figured out 'whodunit'. I like not knowing until the end! I enjoy that Lorna uses characters from the first book to keep their stories alive even though the focus is on a whole new mystery. <BR/>I'd heartily recommend this book for a fun read. You'll get to know Tricia, Angelica, Miss Marple, Mr. Everett, Ginny, Bob and Russ even better than from Murder is Binding. And if you're like me, you'll be anxiously awaiting the third installment in this series. <BR/>I'm fairly sure that no geese were harmed in the writing of this mystery!

    Cute and cozy mystery

    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.

    Highly Recommended--you must check it out!

    In Barrett's mystery novel, bookstore owner Tricia Miles is hosting a book signing for bestselling author Zoe Carter to celebrate the bookstore's anniversary. Before long the police and the media are demanding answers when the author is found dead in the washroom. The prime suspect appears to the author's mousy niece and with an uninterested sheriff, Tricia takes the investigation on herself to solve the mystery. An excellent sequel to the A Booktown Mystery series. Tricia Miles is one tough sleuth!

    Can't wait to read the next.

    I loved this as much as the first. I just love this series. I can barely put them down. I just adore Tricia and Mrs Marple. I would love to take a long weekend trip to Stonehem, NH. So well written it seems so real. I am so glad to started this series.

    Good Read

    I enjoyed this book, as well as the first for the Booktown Series. The characters come to live off the page. The story plot line seems realistic. Look forward to next in the series.

    LOVED IT!!

    I love everything about this series & this individual book. The idea of a town centered around bookstores makes my knees go weak, but top it off with great characters & forget it. I own every book in the series!

    In Bookmarked For Death, Tricia is forced to find out who killed author Zoe Carter and why. Since the crime scene is also Tricia's mystery bookstore, her store has been shut down & Tricia has no faith in the town's sheriff. The plot takes you in many different directions and I loved every minute of it! There were surprises and twists I didn't see.

    I hope you read it and enjoy it as much as I did.

    A great read!

    It's hard sometimes to find the time to read, but when you do, Lorna Barrett's books are a great choice. I've read the first three 'Booktown Mysteries'. I read #2 (BOOKMARKED FOR DEATH) out of order, but it didn't matter. I found myself engrossed in this book. The fictional Stoneham, New Hampshire seems like an ideal town I would enjoy visiting, with its wealth of bookstores and personable characters. I'd be perusing the books at "Haven't Got A Clue" if it were real, too. Main character Tricia Miles is very likeable in every way, from her business sense to her concern for solving town murders. All the characters feel so real, that you can envision them in your mind as you read. Like the other two Booktown mysteries, I found this book to be a page-turner and the hours slid away as I read. (I like a book that is so good you lose track of time). I am so glad I read this book and I am eagerly looking forward to the next book in the series, due in August 2010.

    Enjoyable quick reading,Lorna is developing her characters well.

    This book is better than #1 so I look forward to even better mysteries as she continues to write about her PI ghost.

    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.

    Enjoyable Change of Pace

    Bookmarked for Death is just right for mystery readers who appreciate getting all the clues that the protagonist gets. There are just enough distractions to tantalize the reader with two possible outcomes. For this reader, however, the best part of this novel resides in the overall pleasantness of most of the characters. After reading several recent bestsellers saturated with dark, twisted characters and evil lives, this was a pleasure.

    Cozy mystery

    I enjoy the characters and the setting. Cozy murder mysteries have become my recent favorite and this is a good one. An easy read.

    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.

    Great Followup After Murder Is Binding

    Interesting followup to Murder Is Binding. The author did a great job in making our sleuth - Tricia - into a "real Person". I could relate to the comment she made as to why she liked reading mysteries. And she finds herself encountering a "real life" murder. If you love mysteries and/or cozies, you need to check it out.

    Barrett does it again!

    In the second installment of the Booktown Mystery series, Lorna Barrett does not disappoint. Just as thrilling as her first novel, Murder is Binding, with just as many twists and turns in her story. Will keep you guessing until the very end.

    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.
