This cozy mystery about an expert bookbinder and artist successfully weaves in a tale about a very old historic cookbook and the murder of a well-known chef. This was my first exposure to Kate Carlisle, the author, and I enjoyed the book so much I reserved several of her other books in this series. One particular thing I like is that from one book to the next, the characters do develop and change in a plausible way, there are multiple subplots going on, and characters extend from this book to other books in the series (in addition to the protagonist). I'm learning a bit about bookbinding along the way. A really fun read.

Bibliophile mysteries, 7. (First in series to be initially published in hardback.)

I don't like romance novels--especially ones in which the supposedly adult narrator acts like a hormone raging teen. Having said that, let me also say that these books continue to amaze me with their great bad-guy chase, kooky characters, impossibly handsome men, and strange but exciting discoveries of odd old books.

Another great addition to the series.

A mix of mystery and romance novel. A good book to read in bed just before dropping off to sleep.

I like this series. I love books so a protagonist who restores old books appeals to me. When you add in the quirky people in her life -- a James-Bond-like boyfriend, a sister who is a Cordon Bleu chef, a mother who practices Wicca (and other spiritual things) -- and the list goes on, the story never gets boring. I knew pretty early on who the main villain was, but that didn't stop me from enjoying the read.
