I enjoyed the premise of this book, and it had a few twists and turns that I enjoyed. I didn't figure out whodunit until just before the end. I enjoyed the description of the town and love the idea of a town full of bookstores!
The supporting characters are colorful and the foodie and book details add a good dimension.

That being said, I really do not care for the heroine of the series. Trish Miles of all the characters just doesn't click for me. She gives the impression that she's so much better than the others. The things that the other characters do for her are met with sarcasm (albeit in her thoughts) and she seems to be ungrateful for the small niceties that people do for her.
She just rubs me the wrong way.

Nothing her part time boyfriend says or does is right, and her sister can't seem to be the sister Trish wants her to be, even though she has a very strong personality herself.
I may read another installment in the series if I come across it, but I won't seek it out. There are so many other books out there with characters I do enjoy reading about.
