The Spotlight is on Tricia Miles!

by Lorraine Bartlett / Lorna Barrett / L.L. Bartlett

It's just three weeks until the paperback edition of TITLE WAVE, the 10th Booktown Mystery comes out. Here's a brief description.

Tricia and Angelica leave Booktown behind for some much needed R&R. Naturally they choose a Mystery Lovers cruise, where they can ponder whodunnit in deck chairs while sipping colorful drinks and soaking up some rays. But the fun is cut short when a fellow passenger is murdered for real. Is the killer a famous mystery author, one of her fans, or a member of the ship’s crew? As Tricia tries to find the killer before they reach port, she may be cruising for a bruising....

Whatever made me decide to write a Booktown Mystery about a cruise? Well, everything a writer experiences is 'grist for the mill.'  I've been on three cruises (and I think I'm due for another one) and I thought it would be a good way to get Tricia and Angelica out of their home base, but keep them in their own element.  How? Well, by immersing them in a book-lovers cruise. Tricia gets to hang out with mystery authors, and Angelica gets to meet her favorite TV chef, as well as attend other culinary fun demonstrations, etc. And of course, t here's all the cruise FOOD.  There's a mystery to be solved and the cruise line isn't exactly interested in having it solved, so Tricia must come to the rescue.

If you haven't had a chance to read the book, the paperback will be available on June 6th.

Hope  you'll enjoy your cruise aboard the Celtic Lady.
