Murder's in the mix for mystery bookstore owner and amateur sleuth Tricia Miles, in the latest entry to Lorna Barret's New York Times bestselling Booktown series.
 
With her assistant, Pixie, picking up more responsibility around the shop, Tricia Miles suddenly has a lot more time on her hands. Tricia decides to join the local animal-rescue board and enter the Great Stoneham Bake-Off, but neither pans out as smoothly as she’d hoped.
 
Balancing a bake-off that’s heating up with a frosty reception from the board, Tricia stops by Joyce Whitman’s romance bookstore looking for a book to get her fired up. She stumbles on something hot, but it’s an argument between Joyce and her neighbor Vera Olson instead of a steamy read. When Vera turns up dead in Joyce’s garden hours later, Tricia has to wonder—could Joyce be the killer? Or is the culprit still lurking in town?
 
One thing is for sure, someone in Stoneham is stirring up something more sinister than sweet. Tricia is determined to win the cutthroat cooking contest, but first she will have to make sure no one else is in danger of getting burned....


Advance Galley Reviews

Love this series - and this book didn't disappoint!

A Killer Edition is a good mystery, although the mystery plot seemed a bit muted. Tricia finds a body in a garden which leads to her informal sleuthing as to who was the killer. That wasn't the main focus of the story. Out of it revolved around Tricia having meals with her sister and drinking, which was a little redundant. The shelter animals' descriptions were heartbreaking and the author didn't follow through with the outcome for the two little beagles, which I was disappointed in. The story just seemed a little stale and flat. Thanks to Penguin First Read for the early copy.

Good mystery. Will be reading more of this series.
