Description:

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 in this latest 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 in the murder of a woman with her own scandalous past. Even Tricia’s faith in 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 author Steven Richardson? Is it a coincidence that he arrived for a book signing just before the crime or that the victim was found with a signed copy of his latest bestseller?  

From merlot to murder, Tricia is determined to clear the family name before another body shows up and ruins Stoneham’s first—and highly anticipated—wine and jazz festival.

My Thoughts:

Tricia, Angelica and friends are back for their next adventure this one starts with a book signing of an author Tricia met on her cruise Steven Richardson.  When Tricia's father John shows up in town surprising both his daughters they have to wonder what John is up to now?  When Carol a darts opponent of Tricia's ends up slapping both Steven Richards and her father John Tricia wonders what they did to upset Carol?  When Carol winds up dead Tricia wonders who killed her and why?  Will Tricia figure it out in time or will her luck run out?

I love this series it's such fun with it's different people who help Tricia and especially learning more about their family and how it's all a mess.  The one thing Tricia seems to have longed for is some sort of relationship with her mother and it was intriguing to read about how it played out in this book.  Also watching how the girls deal with their father being in town and what his agenda is.  Can't wait to read the next adventure!
