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 their hearts. This multi-published, Agatha-nominated author pens the exciting Jeff Resnick Mysteries as well as the acclaimed Victoria Square and Lotus bay Mystery series, and the Tales of Telenia adventure-fantasy saga, and has many short stories and novellas to her name(s).

This is a wonderful short story, about a bride-to-be, Lauren, who does not seem to be excited about her upcoming wedding. The owners of Sassy Sally’s Don and Nick are trying to renovate the bed and breakfast while trying to help Lauren plan her wedding. I really enjoyed getting to know Don and Nick better and hearing details about the renovation of Sassy Sally’s. Besides getting to know the residents of Victoria Square better this book shows us that we can’t see what or how a person is feeling just by looking at them. The book also shows us that we should be there for someone and that telling someone what you think they want to hear is not always the best policy. I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own and in no way have been influenced.

A wonderful short where we get to know Don and Nick better. They are a married couple who have bought a Victorian home that they are transforming into a wonderful venue where parties, weddings, receptions, and things can be held. While working on their dream business a family friend calls and wants to take a look at their place, she is hoping that they will be able to have not only her daughters wedding there but also the reception. When meeting the bride the guys get a sense that the young woman in question doesn't really seem to be into her wedding. Follow along as they delve deeper to find out just why the bride seems so hesitant and should she really be getting married. I enjoyed getting to know more background about other characters in this series and hope to see them again in later books. I love these little novellas because they keep you up to date on characters and series you love but also give you an enjoyable read while waiting for the next book.

It is great to read this series to broaden the characters and places of Victoria Square, while providing us with an interesting story. This is a wonderful, quick, must read. I hope we return to this particular venue in the future to see the remodeling progress.

Marsha Washborne is looking for a wedding venue for her daughter and contacts Nick Farrell, who along with his partner, Don, are renovating his late aunt's mansion to a commercial enterprise, named Sassy Sally's. Although the construction is not totally complete, Nick finds it hard to turn down this close friend to his late aunt. But Marsha's daughter, Lauren, doesn't seem to be that thrilled about the venue. Will this be their first successful venture, or will Nick's misgivings cause problems with the client. This story gives us a quick look at Nick and Don and their relationship with each other, how each of them handles a reluctant and unenthused client, and finally an all-important lesson in prejudging people. I like how the author is expanding the Artisans Alley (Katie Bonner) environ with additional merchants in the surrounding area. This provides more colorful characters and expanding stories for the reader. I am looking forward to more stories in Victoria Square.
