Book Review – Murder Under Cover by Kate Carlisle (Bibliophile Mystery #4)

  Title:  Murder Under Cover (Bibliphile Mystery #4)

Author:  Kate Carlisle

ISBN:  978045123356

Publisher:  Signet


Synopsis (from  Brooklyn Wainwright (The Lies That Bind), San Francisco’s bookbinder-cum-crime solver, steps away from her desk again in this smart and intriguing cozy. Steeped in San Francisco culture and characters, including the hippie commune parents and requisite gay and lesbian friends, this beach read has the bonus of spy intrigue built into its plot, and not just in Brooklyn’s James Bond-like boyfriend, Derek Stone. BFF Robin has just returned from a trip to India bearing a valuable book for Brooklyn to restore. A handsome Ukrainian guy Robin met spends the night—but then he’s murdered execution-style in her bed. Now the bad guys are after Brooklyn, too, but why? VERDICT There is a high body count here for a cozy, but rest assured, all killings are done off-scene. A terrific read for those who are interested in the book arts and enjoy a counterculture foray and ensemble casts. Great fun all around!           

 My thoughts:  Everyone’s favorite bookbinder is back in this fourth installment of the Bibliophile Mystery Series.  I enjoy this cozy series.  A fast and delightful, if not somewhat predictable and formulaic along the way.  I find the characters engaging and pleasant and am simply fascinated by how much I learn about the bookbinding process in these books.  I had no idea 🙂
This series is definitely worth the read if you are a booklover and a cozy lover!  Add it to your ever-growing of books to be read!
