A Bibliophile Mystery
4th in this series
Brooklyn Wainwright loves her job rebinding old books, sometimes finding hidden treasure, sometimes the treasure is just the joy of rescuing a book that is centuries old.
When she is given an ancient copy of the Kama Sutra written in French and covered in jewels to restore and appraise from her friend Robin, she is not only excited about restoring the book but the research may also add a little spark to her love life.
When Robin wakes up with a man she just met murdered in her bed, she becomes the prime suspect. Then both the friends lives are turned upside down as they try to uncover why apartments are being ransacked, other people are dying, and Robin's mother, who lives in India, and gave Robin the Kama Sutra book to give to Brooklyn, shows up for an unexpected visit.
This book was so good, one twist and turn after another, plus quite an education about binding books and the Kama Sutra. I liked the first 3 books but I loved this one. Brooklyn evolves more and more with each installment in this series and I really liked her in this one. Sometimes it takes time to get to know a character and that is the case with this series. She has become more realistic to me over the series and my interest in rare books has grown too. Plus the real international mystery drew me right into this story. I was very happy to read and review this book. Wonderful story, not to be missed.
