    I get that this is mind candy, but I just don t like this flavor I found the style annoying, with redundant repartee along the lines of We re where we were an hour ago Wow We re right where we started The people and plot are all preposterous but I couldn t tell if this was trying to be funny For silly murder mysteries in San Francisco, I prefer the Monk books.

    What a great read I love it when I can learn something while I m being entertained I jumped in this series with this book 10 but can assure everyone it is a standalone book I quickly felt the characters come to life Brooklyn Wainwright is a book restorer and book artist Reading about her craft and the mysteries that trail her, as well as her love interest, friends and family, was like visiting San Francisco and having this novel come to life around you The mystery was engaging There was humor, t [...]

    I m not sure which is my favorite Bibliophile mystery, but it just might be Books of a Feather by Kate Carlisle Maybe it was the combination of all the bird books and an Audubon exhibit, along with Brooklyn Wainwright s happiness Whatever it is, I really enjoyed this book And, Dan Craig s cover is gorgeous Brooklyn Wainwright is a bookbinder specializing in rare book restoration, but she s also an artist who creates books, and an expert in the field All of those traits come into play in the late [...]

    EDIT CHANGED IT TO 3 STARS, and begrudging that now I have gone back forth SO many times on how to rate this one The mystery itself, I thought, was a good one However, when did all of the characters get so stupid I m used to Brooklyn pulling TSTL stunts, but when did Derek get so stupid he d let a homeless stranger into his home and then leave said stranger there alone while the whole freakin family went out to pickup breakfast I know Brooklyn s mom is a ditz and I have my doubts about her dad, [...]

    I enjoyed this book as I do the series There were a couple things that bothered me such as the story started one way but the author changed her mind and took it in a different direction, it seemed rather abruptly dropped and mentioned in the end Also a body is not who they think but continue to refer to it as the presumed person I do love reading about the book binding although this book seemed to have than usual These were minor and probably wouldn t bother most, this is just my opinion The my [...]

    Very thin plot The story was padded with lengthy descriptions of how Brooklyn, the protagonist, went about her job as a book restorer which might be interesting in itself but had nothing to do with the mystery of the two murders.

  9. Mary

    The book mending binding process is interesting but, the characters are too sweet, too handsome, too beautiful and too perfect.

    Another great entry in a series I ve loved since reading the first book This time it s view spoiler an art mystery at it s core I just love Brooklyn, it was so good seeing her defend herself and kick the butt of the larcenous husband I hate to see the heroine need to be saved in every book, and it was great that she and her parents are the people that wind up saving Derek this time hide spoiler Only one book released so far in this series, kinda bummed about that I hope the author is busy worki [...]

    I began reading Kate Carlisle s Bibliophile mysteries when the series first began but stopped because I soon became consumed by an irrational loathing of one of the secondary characters After being told that this character is no longer around, it didn t take any persuasion at all for me to begin reading once I did find the mystery in Books of a Feather to be rather easy to solve, but that didn t bother me one little bit Like all the best series, the mystery is important but the cast of characte [...]

    I really enjoy these mysteries and this one is no exception I thoroughly enjoyed it.I like that Brooklyn is discovering that she can be a strong and independent woman while still managing to share her life with Derek She is learning that loving someone and sharing her life with someone doesn t mean that she has to be dependent on them.Then, of course, is the great mystery Who has killed to obtain a rare book and which book is it that they want to obtain Brooklyn currently has several locked in h [...]

    This is number 10 I would have never found this series, except for finding the 1st one in a cruise ship library The information about book binding is so interesting I do enjoy the characters, and the continuing love story is very cute I did sort of figure out the bad guy earlier than usual well one of them The conceit of the series is that Brooklyn keeps finding dead bodies and then helping solve the mysteries I also like the SF geography, after living 10 years in the Bay area I don t think this [...]

    I rate this a 3.25 The information about book binding was interesting and Carlisle didn t succumb to the temptation of showing off all her research Major points for that Some of her supporting characters are interesting a couple are annoying That s the way it is in real life Points there However, the solution was just too obvious, screaming This is the Killer so loudly that I kept telling myself I was mistaken, that Carlisle was bound to throw in an amazing twist It was disappointing to learn th [...]

    This is the 10th book in the Bibliophile Mystery series and continues to offer a delightful read The mystery always provides lots of interesting twists to keep the reader guessing who and why of each murder I love the growing relationship between Brooklyn and Derek, as well as that of her friends and family And each story gives a great description of Brooklyn s efforts to save and restore a valuable book this one, she actually uses different processes to restore several books, including a childh [...]

    This is the best in the series so far I know I might say that with every one in the series but it is true Brooklyn never fails to entertain while educating on interesting subjects Brooklyn is serious about her work as a book restoration specialist, and delights in getting special projects or unique books to work on This time is no different, except that it is hard to determine which of the books or projects is behind the murders that began occurring The most unique this time is a book with elega [...]

  28. Paula Howard

    There is nothing better for a biliophile to read than a bibliophile series Brooklyn stumbles upon dead body This centers around a book in the Audubon collection in the Covington Library Adding to the adventure is the fact that her parents bring a homeless man back to her home thinking he is a long lost friend.

  29. Kathleen

    It is good to have a main protagonist who is secure in her family, love life, and profession Have you noticed how, in most cozy mysteries, the main female character has usually had her life implode though a failed romance and or divorce or failed career, or some other reason for retreating into a small village or town from which the person tries to deal with reinventing their life while solving a murder Not so for Brooklyn Wainwright, who is a fantastic artist and professional bookbinder and who [...]
