Book Spotlight - Not The Killing Type by Lorna Barrett

Not the Killing Type by Lorna Barrett
Booktown Mystery #7 
First time in paperback! released 2013 in Hardcover 
Paperback Release Date: July 1st 2014
Penguin Group

It’s November in Stoneham, New Hampshire, and that means it’s time for the Chamber of Commerce elections. The race is already a bit heated, as  longstanding Chamber president Bob Kelly is being challenged by a former lover—Tricia’s own sister Angelica. Then local small business owner Stan Berry throws his hat in ring.
Unfortunately, it’s not there for long when he’s found murdered in the Brookview Inn. The murder weapon is a brass letter opener belonging to the inn’s receptionist. Tricia knows there’s no way the receptionist is a killer. And when Angelica asks Tricia to help clear her name and win the election, she sees little choice except to start snooping.
She soon uncovers a ballot box full of lies and betrayals, and a chamber full of people who had grudges against the victim. But were they serious enough to lead to murder? And who truly had something to gain? Tricia will have to do some serious sleuthing before she pulls the lever on a killer.

I enjoy cozy mysteries, and I have started reading this series.  I'm looking forward to reading this book!  If you would like to order the book, I have posted Amazon links to this book, ( and the previous book in the series ) on my blog sidebar.  =)

Lorna Barrett

The immensely popular Booktown Mystery series is what put Lorna Barrett’s name 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 there. This multi-published, Agatha-nominated author pens the exciting Jeff Resnick Mysteries as well as the acclaimed Victoria Square Mystery series and has many short stories and novellas to her name(s).

  1. Sounds like a great series. And I love cozies. Will have to check this one out.

  2. I'm thinking Tricia must be Bob's wife? You've got me wanting to pick up this one, Melissa! Sounds like a great summer read.

  3. Thanks for spotlighting my book. Lorna Barrett (AKA Lorraine (LL) Bartlett

  4. Sounds like a pretty good series to look into. Thanks for telling us about it.

  5. I love a book that I can read while sipping a cup of tea and don't have to work at. Sometimes it's a real treat to spoil myself that way. :)
