Light, humorous, non-stressful. Been a good read for a work lunch. I had read number 7, so I decided to read the first one in the series. I might wish for a little more seriousness and a little more believability, but I don't think that's what the author was going for in this series of book related mysteries. I might end up reading some of the others and I'm pretty sure I'm going to know just what to expect. ( )

There is lots of information on book restoration and how it's done andld of rare books, which I enjoyed a great deal—nice storyline, plenty of intrigues, and greaandaracter development. I love a good cozy mystery, and this one qualifies; it's not the best I've read, but it's well above average. The characters were either made you love them or love to hate them. I enjoyed the heroine adventure both in and outside of the world of bookbinding. The story moved quickly, and the secondary characters were quirky enough to make her the sane, rational one. ( )

First in the series. I have her first 4 books in this series and am only getting around to reading in them now - duh. They are super fun!! I love her sense of humour and love the kick ass character Brooklyn. Also very interesting information about bookbinding that i am now fascinated with. And her mother's is also an interesting character as is the commune life. Lots of catching up to do as there are 14 including the scheduled 2020 release. Lots of fun! ( )

Did not finish.

Felt clunky and stilted. ( )

I like the Bibliophile aspect of this story. I'm not excited by the protagonist. ( )
