Sentenced to Death (A Booktown Mystery, #5)

Sentenced to Death (A Booktown Mystery, #5)Sentenced to Death by Lorna Barrett
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was ok as a cozy mystery but there are ways to make the characters more distinctive.  I listened to the book while driving from Virginia to Florida, and it was just about right for listening while traveling.  I might be a little more enthused about the book if I had read the earlier books first,  but this was available to download from my library to my Kindle.

The mystery begins with a Founder's Day celebration on the village green in front of a landmark gazebo.  Unfortunately, the airplane which is carrying the Founder's Day banner crashes into the Gazebo killing Debora, Tricia's good friend.  Everyone begins to get suspicious when her husband, sells her store, parcels out his son to Debora's mother, cremates the body and brings a date the non/memorial of his wife 2 days after she was killed.

Soon, there are other deaths, each one leading Tricia to the identity of the murderer.  I found it a little difficult to tell some of these people apart, but as I said, it might be because I didn't read the first book.
