Tricia Miles, mystery bookstore owner and amateur sleuth, is in for a surprise when her ne'er-do-well father, John, comes to town--and promptly becomes a prime suspect in the murder of a woman with her own scandalous past. Even Tricia's faith in the old man is shaken when the Stoneham police break the news that her father is a known con man who has done jail time. But what about bestselling thriller author Steven Richardson? Is it a coincidence that he arrived for a book signing just before the crime or that the victim was found with a signed copy of his latest bestseller? From merlot to murder, Tricia is determined to clear the family name before another body shows up and ruins Stoneham's first--and highly anticipated--wine and jazz festival.

I read and enjoyed the first five books of this series but I didn't really like the sixth, so I skipped ahead to this book which is the eleventh. I did not enjoy it. I remember now that the protagonist had become very judgmental and a terrible snob. She gets free lunch and free dinner from her sister every day, mooches free hotel rooms and party venues from her--then has a little snit fit when Angelica asks for a small favor. She has never left a tip for the waitress who brings her her free lunch, and is furious when the guy at the store expects a tip for carrying her boxes to the car. The few people she doesn't look down upon are her employees and former employees, and she is very put out that the three men she has dumped are not pining away for her. Not pleasant reading.
