From Publishers Weekly
With this Agatha Christie-meets-Nancy Drew offering, Kaewert delivers the sixth installment to her Booklovers mystery series (Unsigned, etc.) starring British publisher Alex Plumtree and his American fiance, Sarah, who is always involved in something "frightfully secret for an international task force." This time around, Alex and Sarah plan to meet in Nantucket for a quick wedding before heading to Dartmouth College for their class reunion. There they hope to find unpublished documents written by 17th-century diarist, Samuel Pepys documents rumored to contain nasty little secrets about the Royal Family. Alex leaves London in the midst of chaos: the Queen has been gravely injured in a riding accident; the people are divided between Prince Charles and Prince William as successors to the throne; and London's Financial Center has been bombed by terrorists. Stateside, the atmosphere changes dramatically as Alex and Sarah search for Pepys's papers in the dusty archives and hidden passages beneath Dartmouth. The author's love for rare books is the focal point of the story, but the plot, which is stitched together by the similarities between Pepys's journals and current events, is a weak thread.
Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information, Inc.
A lively and utterly preposterous storyline tethered only slightly by the most gossamer of characterizations. It's almost impossible to summarize the plot, which involves, among other things, lost pieces of Samuel Pepys' diary, a terrorist bombing in London, the succession to the English throne, Dartmouth College and its rowing team, a marriage, a college reunion, and current members of the British royal family. What yokes these elements together is the narrator, Alex Plumtree, who runs his family's publishing house in London and is returning to Dartmouth (an old college tie on his American mother's side) for his college reunion and, not incidentally, to get married. Sarah, his bride, has a shadowy job that seems to involve equal parts Christiane Amanpour and Lord Peter Wimsey, and she figures mightily in the workings of the byzantine plot. The library and book lore is rather fun, the Pepys connection intriguing, and much of the other stuff (like Alex's perfectly fatuous random thoughts) can be breezed through without harm.

While they are away the Queen of England is put in the hospital, Prince Charles renounces the Church of England and whether he is still eligible to be king in case Elizabeth doesn't recover is in question.
At the campus during a tour of some items left to the college an odd relic is found and a secret tunnel into the building. And Alex's new bride seems to have secrets she isn't sharing with him. She also puts him in jail!
The story is well written, had lots of turns and twists, scary happenings and mysterious disappearances to keep any mystery reader happy. Strongly recommend both this book and the entire series.
Uncatalogued begins with Alex and Sarah deciding to elope and get married in America right before their college reunion at Dartmouth. To make things more interesting, Alex's college sweetheart calls to ask him for some advice on some historical papers she may have found in the newly acquired archives. For Alex, the invitation to look for lost and possibly found papers written by Samuel Pepys, 17th-century diarist and friend of the royal family, is too good to pass up as he is one of a select few Pepys scholars. He is also asked by the publishing society he belongs to in England to get these possibly incriminating papers back as they are rumored to contain some not-so-nice royal gossip that could do serious harm to England if it came to light.
Fans of this series will not be surprised to read all of the twists and turns that this book contains - Alex and Sarah's near death experiences as well as the fun, historical references - even if the action is somewhat over the top - readers will find it all in good fun.
If you pick this or any of Julie Kaewert's "Plumtree" books up and you won't be disappointed, more likely you will be hooked. Alex Plumtree is a bibliophile's dream come true. This is the sixth book in her series and I certainly hope there are many more to come.
The honeymoon is perfect but what comes next has them fighting for their lives. Alex is a bibliophile who is an expert on Samuel Pepyss the diarist. He isn't a hero with super power but in the past his love of literature has gotten him into adventures that could have gotten him killed. Both Sarah and Alex think this is one such adventure because Alex had a hint that there were more papers from the Pepyss diary hidden in Dartmouth. His friend Mattie, also an alumni of the class of '86, calls him in England to tell him that she has knowledge of the Pepyss paper. When they are in the area where the papers are supposed to be, Alex is beaten and tied up and is on the run from people who speak with British accents.
UNCATOLOGUED is a fantastic book lovers' mystery because the actions of the characters ring true. The teamwork of the honeymooners seems precise and hooks the audience while serving as an indication that Sarah might have a bigger role in future works. Julie Kaewert is a fabulous writer who appeals to both the American and British amateur sleuth audience.
