Review: One Book in the Grave


One Book in the Grave by Kate Carlisle is the fifth book in the “Bibliophile” mystery series. Publisher: Obsidian, February 2012

Brooklyn’s chance to restore a rare first edition of Beauty and the Beast seems a fairytale come true—until she realizes the book last belonged to an old friend of hers. Ten years ago, Max Adams, a renowned, brawny papermaker, fell in love with a stunning beauty, Emily, and gave her the copy of Beauty and the Beast as a symbol of their love. Soon afterward, he died in a car crash, and Brooklyn has always suspected his possessive ex-girlfriend and her jealous beau. Now she decides to find out who sold the book and return it to its rightful owner—Emily. She believes a rare book dealer can assist her, but when she arrives at his shop, she finds him murdered. Is it possible the same couple who may have killed Daniel is now after his edition of Beauty and the Beast? With the help of her handsome boyfriend, Derek Stone, Brooklyn must unravel the murder plot—before she ends up in a plot herself.

Not again. Yep, Brooklyn finds another body, this time a book dealer who bought a stolen book that once belong to Brooklyn’s deceased friend. I devoured this fun-tastic tale from the moment I turned that first page as the mystery captured my attention with a solid storyline. This mystery boasts a great scenery where the action takes place; witty repartee; and an awesome cast of characters. I especially love Brooklyn and her internal dialogues and the relationship she has with her family and friends. This is a great read and I can’t wait for the next adventure in this delightfully fabulous and entertaining series.
