In Lorna Barrett's Murder is Binding, the first installment in the Booktown Cozy Mystery series, a brand new series from Lorna Barrett with the theme of books and reading. For Tricia Miles, she was new to Stoneham New Hampshire and just opened her used bookstore, Haven't Got a Clue. It started out for her, when her neighbor Doris Gleason was killed in her store. As a fellow newbie, all eyes were on her as the prime suspect. Then when Winnie was hit by a car, this small town have been rocked by two murders, the first in over sixty years. And once again, the sheriff blamed Tricia. If there wasn't enough going on, her sister arrived in town, someone handed out tracts for a nudist columnist retreat, and more surprises came in store for her with Doris's twin sister and the selectman's suspicious motives. As they uncovered the truth, the more lives were in peril until it became almost deadly for them with a surprising twist in the end.
This was a delightful new cozy series from Lorna Barrett. I loved the small town effect for Stoneham NH and the visual close-knit neighborhood for this fictional town, too. I cared about Tricia and Angelica as sisters and individually. They both suffered a lot and been though tons, too. I didn't like Sheriff Adams at all either. This would hook you like a great book and take you on an adventure like no other for a quick read with drama, non-stop action, suspense and intrigue.
