There may be grave consequences for bookbinder Brooklyn Wainwright as she attempts to solve two murders tied to one book . . .

Brooklyn's chance to restore a rare first edition of Beauty and the Beast seems a fairy tale come true-until she realizes the book belonged to an old friend of hers. Ten years ago, Max Adams, a brawny renowned papermaker, fell in love with a stunning beauty, Emily, and gave her the copy of Beauty and the Beast as a symbol of their love. Soon afterward, he died in a car crash, and Brooklyn has always suspected his possessive ex-girlfriend and her jealous beau of wrongdoing.

Now she decides to find out who sold the book so she can return it to its rightful owner-Emily. She believes a rare book dealer can assist her, but when she arrives at his shop, she finds him murdered. Is it possible that the same couple who may have killed Max are now after his edition of Beauty and the Beast? With the help of her handsome boyfriend, Derek Stone, Brooklyn must unravel the murder plot-before she ends up in a plot herself . . .

Escape your world and meet a cast of characters you love in books but would never want to meet! Very light reading (almost fluff) but so entertaining and funny that I can't stop reading them.

This is book 5 in the bibliophile mysteries. The story is interesting but to me was a little long.The characters have really grown since book 1 and I enjoy all but one of them. I am curious to see what happens in book 6.
