I was so in the mood for a cozy and I was about to start another one when this one came in the mail.  I couldn't wait, so I started reading right away.  Bookmarked For Death is the second cozy in the Booktown Mystery series by Lorna Barrett.  I really enjoyed the first one and I think the second was even better.

Tricia Miles is hosting her thirteenth books signing in her mystery book shop when the author suddenly turns up dead in the bathroom.  Soon Tricia is trying to solve two mysteries - who killed Zoe Carter and who wrote all those novels Zoe claimed to write herself, but were actually written by someone else?  Meanwhile, the town is suffering from a rather unfortunate goose infestation - can Tricia come up with a solution for that as well?

This book continued on with all the things I enjoyed in the first - a great setting, a complicated plot, and a murder that I couldn't solve until the last chapter.  I thought I'd figured it out by halfway through and Tricia felt the same way, but it turns out we were both wrong!  Bookmarked For Death was a great cozy and now I feel like I'm really into this series and I'm looking forward to reading the next three.
