139. Murder is Binding by Lorna Barrett

About the book

The streets of Stoneham, New Hampshire are lined with bookstores...and paved with murder.
When she moved to Stoneham, city slicker Tricia Miles met nothing but friendly faces. And when she opened her mystery bookstore, she met friendly competition. But when she finds Doris Gleason dead in her own cookbook store, killed by a carving knife, the atmosphere seems more cutthroat than cordial. Someone wanted to get their hands on the rare cookbook that Doris had recently purchased-and the locals think that someone is Tricia. To clear her name, Tricia will have to take a page out of one of her own mysteries-and hunt down someone who isn't killing by the book.

This is the first book in a new series. I loved it. I hope there will be lots more books in the series. There are also some recipes that I will have to try.

I'm so glad you liked the book. There'll be at least two more books in the series--Bookmarked for Death is up next. I received the cover last week and have posted it on my website ( -- I hope you'll like it as much as I do.

I'm currently working on the third book now. In fact, I should stop surfing the Internet and get back to work!

Thanks for stopping by. Happy to hear that I have two more books in the series to look forward to. I can always hope for more.
