More About the Author

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).

Lorna lives in the US in Rochester, NY with her husband and three felines.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Of course there's an obligatory dead body!- pink shoes included, but there is also a new cat besides Miss Marple, - a stray named Penny. As well as the usual sisterly banter between Tricia and Anjelica, you will also find all you ever wanted to know (or not) about freegan-life and diving into dumpsters for leftovers, as in vegetables or bottles of cooking-oil etc. To balance all this mayhem there is, of course, the bookshop with its reliable staff, two of whom are about to get married...
You might read this book at bedtime and finish it over two or three nights. It is good fun and there is no stress involved!

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By murder! she read on 1 Jun. 2010
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Bookplate Special features Tricia Miles who owns Haven't Got A Clue, a book shop that specialises in mysteries and this is the third in the `Booktown Mysteries'. Tricia is playing host to her old college friend, Pammy, who has been an absolute pain in the neck. Tricia finally asks her to leave after she discovers that Pammy has stolen money from her. She goes without a peep, but soon emerges that Pammy has been going around the town looking for a job and giving Tricia as her reference and while chatting to Angelica (her sister), Tricia is guilt tripped into finding Pammy and apologising. Pammy is discovered all too soon when Tricia takes out the rubbish for Angelica and finds her corpse in the dustbin. Oops.

Thankfully the unbalanced Sherriff Wendy wasn't investigating and instead Captain Barker, a welcome newcomer to the town is attending in her place. Not only being the person to throw Pammy out, but also the one to find her, Tricia is being treated like the main suspect and she not only decides to solve the murder herself/

She discovers that Pammy has been very busy, embracing a freeganist lifestyle and boasting about a large sum of money that she was soon going to come into. A nasty piece of work, she seems to have been as much of a criminal as the murderer was and on unravelling her steps, Tricia also finds out other secrets within the town, such as the Stoneham Food Shelf, dark family secrets and a mysterious diary.

What I like about these books is that as well as showing the light and shade in the characters, Lorna Barrett also does the same with the town of Stoneham too.

By Mrs. A. L. Maddocks on 26 Jun. 2012
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Yet another relaxing read by Lorna Barrett. The story starts off with Tricia asking her friend to leave her flat after outstayingg her welcome for two long weeks. Her friend does leave and as a result Tricia feels guilty and before she can sort things out her friend is found dead.

Trying to guess whodunnit wasn't easy - in fact impossible. With plenty of twists you get the answer in the end, and it's not what you expect.

Brilliantly written. Would recommend.
