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 best-selling 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 best seller? 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.

Mission impossible. In the beginning books the parents were wealthy and in this one the father is a crazy bum, gallivanting around the country leaving debt/mayhem. The characters (parents) along the original story line are wealthy, conservative and self centered. Now even that has become too unrealistic to even begin to enjoy the book.
I've given up on this writer. This was the one series that she writes I enjoyed. Now it too has became unbearable.
The poor woman could only do so much with this tripe!
The characters of the book would have remained some what believable. I would have advised the writer to throw the whole thing out and start over.
The reason for the title is, this is the last book by Lorna Barrett I will purchase. I strongly do not care to continue wasting money on poor story lines and hair brain poorly written books.
