About the Author
A native Californian, New York Times bestselling author Kate Carlisle worked in television for many years before turning to writing. A lifelong fascination with the art and craft of bookbinding led her to write the Bibliophile Mysteries featuring Brooklyn Wainwright, whose bookbinding and restoration skills invariably uncover old secrets, treachery, and murder. She is also the author of the Fixer-Upper Mysteries featuring small-town girl Shannon Hammer, a building contractor specializing in home restoration. The Fixer-Upper Mysteries are being brought to Hallmark Movies & Mysteries in a series starring Jewel and Colin Ferguson.

Brooklyn Wainwright, a rare books expert and restorer is in Edinburg, Scotland for a prestigious book fair. Brooklyn runs into an old flame, Kyle, who asks her to authenticate a book of lost poetry by Robert Burns. Then Kyle is killed by one of Brooklyn's restoration tools and Scotland Yard considers her a prime suspect. But security expert Derek Stone shows up to help her find the real culprit.
I loved the first in this series, Homicide in Hardcover. You can check out my review here. This follow up did not disappoint either. I love the cast of characters that Carlisle has assembled and brought back for part two: her hippie parents, best friend Robin, arch-enemy Minka, and of course the sexy Derek Stone. Also a mysterious man from the first book is back for another cameo.
I loved the setting of Edinburg and the fun storyline and the wacky adventures. This is a great combo of chick-lit (the good kind) and mystery. I compared these to the Sophie Katz series in my first review and I stand by that.
I have been having a very poor reading time lately and this was a great book to get me reading again. I may still be in a slump but I was able to enjoy this read immensely!
