The immensely popular Booktown Mystery series is what put Lorraine Bartlett’s pen name Lorna Barrett on the New York Times Bestseller list, but it’s her talent -- whether writing as Lorna, or L.L. Bartlett, or Lorraine Bartlett -- that keeps her there. This multi-published, Agatha-nominated author pens the exciting Jeff Resnick Mysteries as well as the acclaimed Victoria Square Mystery series, and now the Tales of Telenia fantasy saga, and has many short stories and novellas to her name(s).

I bought this book largely on the strength of Murder on the Mind, the first book in the series. This is the second book in the series. I liked this book as well, but you really do have to read the first book first.
This book's plot is a bit more complex than the first book's -- and, of course, doesn't have to spend nearly as much time introducing the characters or providing background details. Also, Jeff, the main character, seems a lot more sure of himself and familiar with how his unique talent works.
My only complaint comes at the end, when Jeff finally knows with certainly who the murderer is -- it seemed to me that he was suddenly certain, but I missed the specific detail that clinched it for him. But, I suppose I might be to blame for that.
