The mystery was well constructed, but the characters were not all that much to my liking. ( )

There is so much to think about in this cozy. I focused on the life led by a character named Max. Love gets him in a basket of trouble. He finds it necessary to change his whole life. There is hate and jealousy. Jealousy can lead to all sorts of dangerous tendencies. Some might call one character a Psychopath. Then, there is the book love throughout the book. A book is used to carry a mystery letter. The title of the book is "Beauty And The Beast." I especially loved the romantic relationship between Brooklyn and Derek.

How quaint each of Brooklyn's siblings are named after a place. There is also the wonderful vocation of bookbinding. The process of papermaking is written about. I tried to follow the technique closely. I couldn't. I just ended up knowing paper is so beautiful for books. There is gilding, and there are many colors like purple and vermillion. These are only a few of the issues covered in the mystery written by Kate Carlisle. There is also a cultish church and thoughts about survivalists. ( )

Brooklyn is contacted by an old friend to restore a rare copy of Beauty and the Beast but when she sees it, she has to disappoint him by telling him that the book is stolen - she knows because she originally gave the book to the actual owner. Separate twist, that owner is dead - or is he?

This mystery took us through some of Brooklyn's past history, exposed us to more of her family in Dharma, and see her wrestling with her own feelings as well as trying to support others.

Love the series! ( )
