    This was the sixth book in the Bibliophile Mystery Series by Kat

    This was the sixth book in the Bibliophile Mystery Series by Kate Carlisle. In this book, we open with Brooklyn going with her neighbors Suzie and Vinnie to a week long birthday party given by Suzie's Aunt Grace. Grace is a multimillionaire, who made her money in as a game designer; starting with board games and moving into computer games. She has become quite the book collector and Brooklyn has done some book repair for her in the past and is really looking forward to seeing Grace's collection. Grace's mansion right on Lake Tahoe is wholly unique and as Brooklyn comes to find out, loaded with shifting walls, trap doors, holograms and lots and lots of books. 

    We meet an all new cast of characters, with only a few familiar faces. We do get to see anew side to Suzie and Vinnie, as they play a key role in this book. Commander Derek Stone is on assignment overseas during most of this book book, so we only get to see him at the very end. Gabriel makes an unexpected appearance and it is he that helps Brooklyn deal with finding the dead body on this adventure. The cat in this book belongs to Grace and seems to take a shine to Brooklyn, causing her to seriously debate getting a cat of her own. I would not be surprised if in a future book, Brooklyn get her own kitty to assist her in solving crime. 

    We only got a small conversation with Brooklyn's parents as well as a video clip of Jeremy and Sergio. Do sign of Janice Lee or Ian McCullough, though they were mentioned. I did miss Guru Bob and surprisingly, Minka. 

    I utterly enjoyed this book. Each book has had different situations and murders, yet still manages to bring recurring themes back to connect the series. I can't wait for the next book to come out. I believe that there is a novella out there, and it has been added to my list to find and read.

    At first I thought I'd be disappointed that Brooklyn's main squeeze was out of the country on business (I always look forward to seeing how Brooklyn and Derek Stone's relationship will progress). But Carlisle made a smart choice in leaving Stone out of most of the action. The reader gets a chance to see Brooklyn on her own again and though it's clear Brooklyn wants Derek to remain a part of her life, it was fun to watch her act as an independant entity again.

    The setting is unique and fun to read about, as are new characters such as Suzie's Aunt Grace and the assortment of house guests that are at Grace's Tahoe home to help her celebrate her 50th birthday. The celebration turns somber quickly enough, when one of the guests drinks a fatal drink meant for the hostess.

    The plot twists and revelataions about Brooklyn, her neighbors Suzie and Vinnie, as well as the elusive Gabriel (who plays a large role in the story and shows himself to be a real friend when Brooklyn needs one most) make this story a page turner.


    While the ending resolves the readers questions, I have to agree that Carlisle may have tackled too much in the last few chapters. While I enjoyed it and in the end it did all makes sense, there were so many truths told in a few pages that I took me a few minutes to absorb it all (unwed Mom-to out of the closet Lesbian-to warm and cozy with daughter AND her child's Dad had my head spinning just a little). But don't let that stop you from an otherwise GREAT read in a GREAT series that leaves you wanting more everytime!

    Pretty Good

    Good entry in the Brooklyn Wainwright bibliophile mystery series even though I was a bit disappointed in how the murderer was revealed. It was rather weak. Still looking forward to the next book in the series.
