9780425262733: Murder on the Half Shelf (Booktown Mysteries)

Tricia Miles—owner of Haven’t Got a Clue, the best mystery bookstore in Stoneham, New Hampshire—once again plays amateur sleuth as she is unexpectedly reunited with a man from a chapter of her life she closed long ago...
 
The town of Stoneham is a haven for bookstores, but it is sadly lacking in bed-and-breakfasts. Fortunately Pippa and Jon Comfort’s Sheer Comfort Inn is about to open, and the couple has offered some locals a free night as a trial run.
 
But it won’t be so easy to sleep after Tricia makes two startling discoveries: Pippa’s murdered body in the backyard, and the fact that Pippa’s husband, Jon, is actually Harry Tyler, a man Tricia loved—and believed dead—for nearly twenty years.
 
Though Harry is the prime suspect, Tricia doesn’t believe him capable of murder, even though he’s led a life of lies. Especially when she discovers that Pippa had a few secrets of her own—some that may have been worth killing for.

Includes recipes.

From the Author:

Tricia Miles, the Stoneham, New Hampshire's village jinx, is in hot water once again. Tricia's always worried that she'll be "looking at a stint at the New Hampshire State Prison for women," and with her uncanny ability to find corpses, it just might happen one day. There are many of the old reliable characters I've enjoyed in this series, including Mr. Everett, who is experiencing some "marital discord" with his beloved wife, Grace. I especially enjoyed meeting Pixie Poe, a very, shall we say, in-your-face sort of gal who many will find quite appealing in spite of herself. The mystery is woven with delightful dashes of humor, intrigue, unusual letters, and written in that spirited Barrett style I love. If you want a lightly spicy and decidedly fun cozy mystery you'll want to add this one to your list!he Half Shelf is the 6th book in the Booktown Mystery series.
--Feathered Quill Reviews
