Publisher's Summary

It's November in Stoneham, New Hampshire, and time for the Chamber of Commerce elections. The long-standing Chamber president is being challenged by a former lover-Tricia's own sister, Angelica. Also throwing his hat in the ring is small business owner Stan Berry. Unfortunately, Stan isn't in the race for long. When Stan is found murdered, his political rivals become suspects.
Angelica is going to need more than a vote of confidence from her sister-she needs Tricia to clear her name so she can win the election. Tricia soon uncovers a ballot box full of lies and betrayals, and a chamber full of people who had grudges against the victim. But were they serious enough to lead to murder? It's up to Tricia to pull the lever on a killer before it's curtains for someone else.

A good book in spite of the main character

If you could sum up Not the Killing Type in three words, what would they be?

Great secondary characters

Who was your favorite character and why?

Pixie...she has really redeemed herself.

What does Karen White bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

A variety of accents. It's amazing how much a character's voice can change book to book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

I have never "read" so far into a series where the main character was so pathetic. She seems to wake up every day, don that chip on her shoulder and pass on her bad attitude. This is the first book where I had hope she was finally growing up. Worth getting for the story.
