"In another Bibliophile Mystery by the New York Times bestselling author of Books of a Feather, San Francisco bookbinder Brooklyn Wainwright stumbles through the looking glass in a tale of murder, rare books, and a quest for the perfect pie"-- Provided by publisher.
"San Francisco bookbinder Brooklyn Wainwright stumbles through the looking glass in a tale of murder, rare books, and a quest for the perfect pie. . . . Brooklyn's oh-so-proper future in-laws are traveling from England to meet her, and if that's not enough to set her on edge, rumors abound that the charming Courtyard Shops across the street may be replaced by high-rise apartments. Their trendy neighborhood will be ruined unless Brooklyn and her fiancé Derek Stone, can persuade the shopkeepers not to sell. But with a rare edition of Alice in Wonderland causing bad blood at the Brothers Bookshop and a string of petty vandalism making everyone nervous, Brooklyn and Derek feel like they're attempting six impossible things before breakfast. Then the owner of the Rabbit Hole juice bar is felled by his own heavy shelves, and the local cobbler lies dead beside him. An accident . . . or something more sinister? Things get curiouser and curiouser when a second priceless copy of Alice is discovered. Will it stir up more trouble within the close-knit community? As the Brits descend, Brooklyn learns they're not so stuffy after all. Derek's dad is won over with chocolate cream pie, and his psychic mum would kill to help Brooklyn solve this murder--before another victim takes a tumble"-- Provided by publisher.

Summary / Annotation
A great series!
submitted by ValerieL on June 19, 2019, 3:02pm
This is the 11th book in the Bibliophile series and it ties "Ripped from the Pages" as being my top favorite. The mystery is fast-paced and kept me on my toes. I did guess the villain before it was revealed but there were plenty of red herrings to throw one off the scent. I love how each of these mysteries centers around a particular book and the way the stories are written.
I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves books, book binding, and/or cozy mysteries!
