Carlisle cooks up a great whodunit in the latest Bibliophile mystery. Brooklyn and Derek are back, with some new friends, to solve quite an interesting caper. With a wealth of entertaining characters and fascinating facts on bookbinding thrown in, it’s a winner!
Bookbinder Brooklyn Wainright is asked by her sister Savannah to repair a cookbook given to her by her ex, celeb chef Baxter Cromwell. Baxter is opening a new restaurant and asks each of his chef friends, starting with Savannah, to create a meal a night there. After the success of the night, the friends all decide to have a drink to unwind. When Derek and Brooklyn return to pick up Savannah, they find her kneeling over Baxter’s body holding a bloody knife. Brooklyn tries to find the murderer, as well as the cookbook, which has gone missing. Will she be able to clear her sister, or will the Wainright sisters be next on the chopping block?
