Publisher's Summary

Tricia Miles has just received a second marriage proposal within 15 minutes. The first was from her friend with benefits, Marshall Chambers, and the second from her ex-lover, Police Chief Grant Baker. Tricia's got some serious thinking to do.

She's still weighing her options when she hears the sound of an engine roaring down Main Street. It's a big white pickup truck that aims for and hits Marshall as he's walking back to his apartment. Tragically, he's killed, leaving Tricia feeling bereft and guilty. She retreats to her sister, Angelica's, apartment to wait for Baker to update her on what happened. While there, Tricia takes Angelica's dog out for a comfort call behind the building, and the same white pickup roars up the alley and just misses hitting Tricia.

Still shaken by that news, Tricia returns to Haven't Got a Clue and is met by Federal Marshal Kirby, who tells her that Marshall had been in the Federal Witness Protection Program. Everything Marshall told Tricia was a lie - in particular, that he was a widower. Was his death an act of revenge?

Tricia's on the hunt for a killer, and it seems like she might be next on the list.

Disappointing

What a disappointment.

Are there no safe characters in this series that won’t eventually get turned into a murderer?
Also why is Tricia’s love life so dismal? It’s a waste of time to keep going back and forth as no one can get over her? Please. Either that or they die.
And who really cares about the chamber of commerce?
I really wanted to like this book/series but it’s becoming harder and harder to like Tricia, she’s a bit of a snob. And a lot of the characters aren’t likable either.

Running out of town suspects

I’ve loved these books but this one just felt so out of character. Without giving anything away, I feel like the culprit was far fetched and was just picked as they were close Tricia’s inner circle so why not!!!

I also thought a row in the story was just so frivolous and out of character and blown way out of proportion and then resolved and all was fine again.

Just not up to the standard as I expect from these books.

Also, the narration keeps changing how they do people’s voices even though it’s the same voice artist…

Story doesn’t fit

This may be my least favorite in the series. It didn’t piece together and flow well at all. Antonio’s accent totally disappeared and it really seemed like more of a soap opera than a cozy mystery. The victim, motive, killer, and ending just felt mashed together and connected by an unstable thread.

Sad Deletion!

I have really liked this series, and have enjoyed becoming "acquainted" with the characters. It almost felt like I know them, and this ending was very sad to me!

I do wonder why it seems like so many cozy mystery heroines are portrayed as strong and smart women who are incapable of finding and maintaining a stable and happy romantic life. Is it a reflection of the authors or the genre?

I agreed with other comments that it seemed like there was a bit of confusion with the voices by the narrator. That didn't really impact my thoughts on the story though, as much as the ending.

Very Disappointed!!!!

Love this series, but I feel the author let us down. Who doesn't want a "Happy Ending"? Maybe we will get a Bobby Ewing scene and Grant will be taking a shower in Trisha's apartment. One could only hope!

Book 15 and going strong!

I was so happy when I saw "A Deadly Deletion", book 15 was out. I will not say more than IT WAS SOOOOO GOOD AND SURPRISING! This book will not disappoint.

Cassandra Campbell is an awesome narrator. I enjoy many of the books she has read.


PLEASE--I need to see the next book soon

old friends with shocking ending

I have listened to this series since the first book. It is not silly and Tricia is not perfect. Over the years the characters have developed,warts and all. Tricia , like all of,doubts some of earlier decisions but not in a "oh poor me" manner.Her sister is a very upbeat but learn she can also have a point unforgiveness. Without giving away the ending i will only say I was brought to tears . We can become invested in well written characters,as I have with this book. Hate to wait for the next book.
