The Bibliophiles mysteries are always entertaining to me, mostly because I like the characters. The mystery this time is connected to Derek's MI6 past rather than Brooklyn's book collector/bookbinding/library world. This was a refreshing change of pace, not least because there isn't a single appearance of the odious Minka. Rest assured, there is some book restoration content included and some of the recurring characters make appearances. I was quite satisfied with this installment.

Enjoy this series about Brooklyn and Derek but feel it must be close to coming to an and. Crimes seem same old, same old.

Kate Carlisle never disappoints with the Brooklyn Wainwright mystery series, my favorite. Brooklyn and Derek are in Paris enjoying the last day of their honeymoon when they run into an old friend of Derek’s. He tells them about a spy shop newly opened in San Francisco, and Derek knows the owner, another person from their “spy” days. Brooklyn, a renowned book restorer,of course comes home with books including a very valuable edition of a Bond book. The plot takes off from here, with mystery, murder, and wonderful information about restoring books. I highly recommend this series  to anyone who looks books, and isn’t that all of us.
