“I always pick up these books, expecting a good read but they always seem to zoom past without much impact.”
~ Under the Covers

Lorna Barrett returns with book twelve in the Booktown Mystery series. This time, Tricia Miles is throwing a cocktail party. However, instead of fun and entertainment, there is murder. Unbeknownst to her, there’s a lot more going on and now, she was must her sleuth skills to find the killer.

I know this series is very popular and well-loved, which is why I wanted to give it a shot in the first place. After having tried a few of the books though, I’m not quite sure this series is right for me. I’m not sure exactly what it is but I found myself struggling to get into this book. I still haven’t fallen in love with Tricia’s character nor do I find myself raving about Barrett’s writing style either. At the same though, I can’t really find what is bothering me about this series. I guess it’s just one of those instances where I can’t really make up my mind. I always pick up these books, expecting a good read but they always seem to zoom past without much impact.

I feel a bit torn of whether or not to continue this series. There are things that I do like about it, such as the bookstore setting. However, that connection is missing for me. I might give it another shot to see if it’ll stick a bit better. But until then, I’ll try to determine what might make this series work for me.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

I feel the same way. I read the first few books in this series but haven’t gone back. I do like some things but I don’t know that I like them enough to continue with the series.
