Bookmarked for Death by Lorna Barrett (Booktown Mystery #2)

Once a struggling town, Stoneham, New Hampshire, is now enjoying a renaissance __ thanks to booksellers like Tricia Miles, proprietor of Haven't Got a Clue. It's a great place to find a good mystery to read -- or to solve ...

To celebrate her bookstore's anniversary. Tricia Miles hosts a book signing for bestselling author Zoe Carter. But the event takes a terrible turn when the author is found dead in the washroom. Before long, both police and reporters are demanding the real story. So far, the author's obnoxious assistant/niece is the only suspect. With a sheriff who provides more obstacles than answers. Tricia will have to take matters into her own hands --- and read between the lines to solve this mystery. Quoted from the back of the book. 

I enjoyed this second installment of the Booktown mysteries. I think Tricia is a very nice person who just happens to get involved in mysteries by just walking into a place at the wrong time. Her sister can be a little overbearing but is always there for her sister. I like how the real person who "did it" is not figured out until the end of the book. Tricia had to step up her investigative skills this time in order to get her business back open. She has a lot of friend who are willing to help solve the crime. I would love to live in this little town full of bookstores.  I give this book 5 stars.
