What's better than reading a cozy mystery?  Reading a cozy mystery about books!  Tricia owns a mystery bookstore in the book district of the small town of Stoneham.  An election is coming up soon when suddenly her neighbor is murdered in her own store, a cook book shop, and her rarest cookbook has been stolen!  Soon Tricia finds herself being framed for the murder and she must find a way to clear her name.  On top of that, her sister has come to town and is determined to "help" Tricia run her store.  Not to mention the mysterious advertisements for the nudist lifestyle are mysteriously showing up in all the bookstores in town!  What is going on in Stoneham?

This was a really great cozy.  I think I enjoyed the setting the most, a street in town filled with just bookstores?  What a dream come true!  I wish it were a real place I could visit.  The plot was great, too; it wasn't a simple murder to solve and I didn't know who did it until the last chapter.  I will definitely be reading the next books in this series.  Hopefully in the future Tricia will find a love interest.  It was barely hinted at in the first book, but she needs a man... other than Sherlock Holmes, that is.
