For her first anniversary, Tricia Miles is thrilled to host best selling author Zoe Carter at Haven't Got a Clue. Things are going well until the crowd begins to thin. That's when Tricia finds Zoe murdered in the store's bathroom.
Zoe was a very private person despite having lived in the small town of Stoneham for many years. With the sheriff determined to keep Tricia's store closed, Tricia decides to find the killer so she can reopen. But the more Tricia investigates, the more suspects she finds. What secret that Zoe was hiding led to her murder?
I enjoyed this book more than the first in the series. The plot did snag a couple of times, but everything came together for an exciting, logical climax. There are two sub-plots that help keep things flowing as well.
The characters were a bit sharper this time around as well. While Tricia's sister Angelica could still get on my nerves, I did remember why I liked her by the end of the book. I'm less enthused at either sister's romantic relationships, but I'm willing to see how things progress with their boyfriends. And don't forget to look in the back of the book for some recipes for the delicious food mentioned in the book.
I'm glad I came back for round two in this series. I plan to get and read the third volume in the series soon.
