About the Author

The immensely popular Booktown Mystery series is what put Lorraine Bartlett’s pen name Lorna Barrett on the New York Times Bestseller list, but it’s her talent -- whether writing as Lorna, or L.L. Bartlett, or Lorraine Bartlett -- that keeps her in the hearts of her readers. This multi-published, Agatha-nominated author pens the exciting Jeff Resnick Mysteries as well as the acclaimed Victoria Square Mystery series, Tales of Telenia adventure-fantasy saga, and now the Lotus Bay Mysteries, and has many short stories and novellas to her name(s).

No spoilers. This book includes all the short stories to date as well as all the novels bar the latest, "Shattered Spirits". This series is definitely best read in chronological order. It's a mystery/thriller series with a twist. The lead, Jeff, suffered a major head injury while being mugged. Since then, he's subject to visions and psychic impressions. That being said, it is not really a paranormal series. Before the mugging, Jeff was an in-house investigator for an insurance company. During the healing process, while he's staying in Buffalo with his brother and his brother's long-time girlfriend, Jeff is drawn to a local homicide. The mystery is intricate and smartly done. The characters are well conceived and written. A large part of this series involves the family dynamics between Jeff and his brother. The physical, mental, and social consequences of a serious head injury also play a large role in this series. The author skillfully blends all these elements together to create books that are hard to put down. They are sad, touching, humorous, intelligent, intense, and hopeful. I suggest reading them in the order given, because they jump around in time. The 1st book has Jeff dealing with the mugging and the immediate aftermath. There are a lot of allusions to a complicated family history. As the books progress, they go back and forth in time; explaining more and more about the characters' histories, their complicated family dynamics, and the consequences of their past on their future. In regards to the actual muder mysteries, each book is complete in and of itself.
