The Book Stops Here
by Kate Carlisle
I read this amusing book I was reminded of the Stephanie Plum series.
Admittedly, there are more differences than similarities between the two
series. The humor in Carlisle's books is more sophisticated than the
inane silliness found in the Evanovich books. Carlisle's character,
Brooklyn Wainwright, does not live a paycheck to paycheck existence. She
is a well-regarded rare-book restorer and appraiser. Brooklyn has a
hunky live-in boyfriend with a sexy British accent.
In this book Brooklyn is the rare book appraiser on This Old Attic a hit
TV series. Her first appraisal leads to murder and to a meeting with an
eccentric millionaire who is obsessed with Mae West. -- recommended by Donna G. - Virtual Services Department [ see Donna's Reviewer Profile and more of her reviews ]
