The New York Times bestselling author of Not the Killing Type is back in Booktown with another page-turning mystery. Bookstore owner Tricia Miles and her sister, Angelica, must put their problems on the shelf to catch a killer who turns a bookcase into a murder weapon After cranky Chamber of Commerce receptionist Betsy Dittmeyer is crushed by a fallen bookcase, the next item to be read is her will, which is packed with surprises. It seems Betsy was hiding volumes of secrets behind her perpetual frownone of which might have been a motive for murder. While Tricia tries to help Angelicathe newly elected Chamber of Commerce presidentsolve the mystery, she discovers a hidden chapter in her own family history. And with her ex-husband and the chief of police vying for her affections, its doubly hard to focus on who buried Betsy in a tomb of tomes. But Tricia and Angelica will need to watch their step carefully to make sure the killer doesnt catch them between the stacks.

#OverbookedClub while I'm at it, I might as well go all the way back to the beginning. In August 2019 @megnews asked if anyone would like to do a buddy read with her, and the rest is history.😄 @Saturndoo joined us to read Auschwitz Lullaby that month. #buddyread

megnews I‘m so glad you did this! We‘ve read some great books and enjoyed conversation. Looking forward to more in the coming year! 2mo
sblbooks @megnews yes, here's to many more... 2mo

#OverbookedClub 2021 is coming to an end soon. It's time to start thinking about what we should read next year. Instead of monthly voting we will hold quarterly votes & instead of voting in the comments we will create a Google document for each vote. One month prior to the start of each quarter we will have a blurb showing your options and link the document for you to vote. I will post options for Jan-March on December 1st. @megnews #buddyread

sblbooks I'm going to tag some that have read with us in the past, but feel free to share with anyone else. 2mo

Me to Students: Oooooh sorry, you can‘t have your phone out unless you are passing all your classes AND have read a book for 20 minutes
Student 30 seconds later (I‘m answering as school email on my phone as I pace the room): Maurice I don‘t see YOU reading anything.
Me: You‘re right!
So I sat down next to him and read my book with a timer going for both of us 😂

I wanted to like this book, but I didn‘t care for the main character, Tricia, who is the owner of a mystery book store. It seemed as if, for no apparent reason, half the men in town were former lovers and either had or were currently stalking her. I also didn‘t care that much about the murder and its solution.

I'm about to start running a book club I have been a member of for many years, and was looking for some advice from Littens as to great book club books.... We always seem to have the best discussions with books that are polarizing, have challenging characters, or have questionable decision making! (Examples above).... So lovely Littens... Which books have led to the best discussions in your book clubs? Thanks for you help in advance! 😍

Lcsmcat We had good discussions with The Dinner, The Handmaid's Tale, State of Wonder, The Girl on the Train, and Into the Darkest Corner. 5y

Cinfhen Lots of books you listed were big hits, I need to think back...but I know these two memoirs led to wonderful discussion although I'm not sure if the topic will have universal appeal, although I'm thinking it should 5y
Cinfhen I could keep going but you've probably read them all😊🙌🏻💗 5y
KCorter One of the sons of a book club member was curious and wanted to read along with us for our Christmas-themed book. It was great to see an elementary schooler engaged in an intellectual discussion and keep up with the adults! He gave a fresh perspective, especially since he is Tiny Tim's age. We'll probably do something similar at this year's Christmas party and invite the families to participate again! 5y
ReadingEnvy Because of the ending and the subject matter 5y
Evelien This one! We even discussed it in our psychology classes 5y
KarenUK @Lcsmcat @Well-ReadNeck @Cinfhen @L_auren @KCorter @ReadingEnvy @Audrey @Evelien Thank you all so so much for all the wonderful suggestions.... So many great choices! I so appreciate you all 😍 5y

When you come home from book club after drinking copious amounts of wine and throw away the rings you've wrapped in a paper towel after washing your hands and you don't see them again until over 36 hours later when in a last ditch desperate attempt to find them you search the trash and luckily find them there (still wrapped in said paper towel), you've been #bookclubbed 💍 💍💍🍀🤢
