When the author puts Brooklyn in her bookbinding workroom, Brooklyn is very professional and knowledgeable about what she does and loves best. She takes extreme care and caution with the books that are entrusted to her care. It's when she is with boyfriend, Derek Stone, British security man, that she falls into a puddle of mush. It's as if she can't believe that he could possibly be her boyfriend, much less human. Brooklyn is an adult in her professional life, but with Derek she seems about thirteen.
Despite being lovestruck, Brooklyn is in danger in this fourth addition to the Bibliophile Mystery Series and her friend, Robin, nearly is killed in her own apartment which is the scene of a grisly murder. Brooklyn's parents are in this book and her mother is very funny with her so-called spells and made up songs and her sage-burning rituals that she does to try to help Robin.
All in all, it's a cute story and it is enjoyable to learn how a book is taken apart piece by piece, repaired and put back together again. Brooklyn and Derek and other family members have their hands full with murders and attempted murders in this mystery that I enjoyed.
This book feels more like a romance than a mystery. While there is a murder to solve, there is a definite shift to a more romance-like vibe. It's hard to explain without getting into it too much, so I won't. Let's just say I'm getting a "cutesy" vibe off this book, and I don't tend to like reading cutesy stories.
Furthermore, the main protagonist, Brooklyn, is becoming a Mary Sue. She can do no wrong, or at least that's the vibe I got from reading it. In this book, her best friend is a murder suspect. Okay, I get that Brooklyn is upset at this. Yes, I understand that Brooklyn will want to get hip deep into this investigation. I'm alright with that. I can understand that. What I don't like is this "princess" attitude coming from her. It can clearly be witnessed when she's talking to the police (although there are other instances of it in the book). Nobody calls her on this? Ok... so if Brooklyn has a problem, then obviously the police must be at fault. No, Brooklyn isn't out of line; it's them. Her attitude just seemed so out of character that I started to become disgusted with this book, so it was very hard for me to keep reading to the end. But I did.
Brooklyn is a smart and spunky woman.Read more ›
