    Great new Booktown Mystery!

    Once again, Lorna Barrett doesn't disappoint with this newest Booktown Mystery. It's not a good thing when Tricia and Angelica's father appears in town again. He's already stiffed and stolen from many of the merchants. When he is slapped by a woman who later ends up dead, it doesn't look too good for him either. As much as her father frustrates her, Tricia still would like to clear his name. But, it's not so easy. Her father's past is a bit shadier than she realizes. This Booktown Mystery is full of twists and kept me reading. I really enjoy the characters -- sometimes I have to remind myself they aren't real -- because they seem that way to me. This series continues to be my favorite series.. The only hard part is waiting for the next one!

    Wonderful Story

    Tricia is doing renovations to her apartment on top of her bookstore Haven't Got A Clue. How long before they will be finished and the pounding finally stops!? Tricia and Angelica find the body of a woman who had just attended the author signing at her mystery bookstore. Tricia also finds out just what a con artist her dad really is, but is he capable of murder as well? Can her parents reconcile? Welcome back to Stoneham where murders seem to occur and Tricia is the one to find the bodies. A mystery with twists and turns, suspects, and more than one murder and layers of information to dig through. I always feel like I am back with friends during my visit to Stoneham. The writing of Lorna Barrett makes me feel as if I am right there with Tricia, Angelica and friends flaws and all. Thank you Lorna Barrett for another wonderful read! Thank you NetGalley and Berkeley for giving me the opportunity to read this book.

    Mystery, Celebrations, and Family Drama

    A Just Clause is book 11 in the Booktown Mystery Series by Lorna Barrett. Although some details about the about the characters can be better understood by reading the previous books in the series this book can be enjoyed as a stand alone mystery. A Just Clause picks up just a few months after book 10 (Title Wave). Tricia once again is involved in finding a dead body, continuing her nickname of the village jinx. While dealing with her living space being renovated, Tricia is having to deal with some new and unsettling information about her father and her parents separation. Can Tricia and her sister Angelica help their parent reconcile? Can the sisters get past finding out about their father’s past and their mother’s refusal to put past issues behind her? Will Tricia once again get involved in the investigation and can she keep out of harm’s way My favorite characters are the main characters-Tricia and Angelica Miles. The sisters although successful business women do not have perfect lives which makes them more realistic. Their family issues make the sisters more relatable. Mrs. Barrett added enough red herrings in the story to keep you guess until the end of the book. In addition to the mystery of a murder or two, Tricia and Angelica are having to deal with some upsetting new about their father. Angelica continuously has to make restitution for their father’s “borrowing” and their mother has thrown Mr. Miles out and is refusing to take him back. As much as I like the sisters I find it hard to root for a reconciliation between them and their parents. However I was pleasantly surprised at the ending. I can’t wait to to see what happens in the next book with the family and how Tricia’s renovation turns out. I would definitely recommend this book to mystery lovers. I was provided with a digital ARC of this book by the author through Netgalley . This is my honest review.
