Publisher's Summary

Tricia Miles and her sister, Angelica, are copresidents of the Stoneham Chamber of Commerce. Things are changing in the booktown, and some merchants would say not for the better. They grumble that too many non-book-related stores are moving into the village, diluting the “Booktown” moniker. Of course, the members with other businesses, like the latest, The Bee's Knees, are fine with other businesses moving in. No matter what side of the argument they're on, all the business owners agree on one thing: Tricia and Angelica are to blame.

Still, it's a pretty typical day in the life of a small-town Chamber of Commerce until one of the disgruntled bookstore owners is killed—Eli Meier from The Inner Light Bookstore, the most vocal of the Chamber complainers. He sold religious and other spiritual books, but also stocked books on wild conspiracy theories and sold incense, crystals, etc. Eli had never been a member of the Chamber until Angelica recently convinced him to join. He hit on her and she, having good taste, turned him down. He hounded (but not stalked) her, and some might think that was a motive for murder.

Stoneham's new police chief is an old friend of Tricia's, but that doesn't mean he's going to go easy on her sister. One might even say that he's going to throw the book at her.

An Ed Op within a story

There’s much more going on here than someone telling the cozy mystery because it reeks of political agenda. I was so ready to end this series. After the disaster that was the last book I figured I would give it one more shot to redeem itself and it failed miserably.

Political agenda

I’m returning this book. I read cozy’s because they are about the mystery without all the gore, language and agenda of other genres. This book has a major political agenda. I’ve like this series up until this book, but I’m done with it now. Not even interested enough to find out who done it.
