New York Times bestselling author Lorna Barrett is back in
town—Booktown, that is—with another page-turning mystery.
This time bookstore owner Tricia Miles and her sister,
Angelica, put their own problems on the shelf to catch a
killer who turns a bookcase into a murder weapon.
Cranky Chamber of Commerce receptionist Betsy Dittmeyer is
done reading people the riot act. After she’s crushed by a
fallen bookcase, the next item to be read is her last will
and testament—which is packed with surprises. It soon comes
to light that Betsy was hiding volumes of dark secrets
behind that perpetual frown of hers—and one of them just
might have been a motive for murder.
While Tricia tries to help Angelica—the newly elected
Chamber of Commerce president and Betsy’s boss—solve the
mystery, she discovers a hidden chapter in her own family
history that rocks her to her very core. And with her
ex-husband and the chief of police vying for her affections,
it’s doubly hard to focus on who might have buried Betsy in
a tomb of tomes.
But as Tricia and Angelica try to read between the lines,
they need to watch their step-and make sure the killer
doesn’t catch them between the stacks.
