Spotlight - The Book Stops Here

I'd like to shine a spotlight on a book in one of my favorite series. The Book Stops Here by Kate Carlisle is the 8th book in the Bibliophile Mystery series.

From the book jacket:

You never know what treasures can be found in someone's attic. Unfortunately for bookbinder Brooklyn Wainwright, some of them are worth killing for...

 Brooklyn Wainwright is thrilled to be appearing on the San Francisco edition of the hit TV show This Old Attic as a rare-book expert and appraiser. Her first subject is a very valuable first-edition copy of the classic children's story The Secret Garden, which is owned by a flower vendor named Vera.

Once she hears what her book is worth, Vera is eager to have Brooklyn recondition it for resale. But after the episode airs, a furious man viciously accosts Brooklyn, claiming that Vera found the first edition a his garage sale, and he wants it back-or else. Brooklyn is relieved that she's put The Secret Garden in a safe place, but Randolph Rayburn, the handsome host of This Old Attic is terrified by the man's threats. He confides in Brooklyn  that he fears he is being stalked. He doesn't know who might have targeted him or why.

In the days that follow, several violent incidents occur on the set, and Brooklyn is almost killed, leaving both her and her security expert boyfriend, Derek, shaken. Is someone after Brooklyn  and the book? Or has Randolph's stalker become more desperate? And then Brooklyn visits Vera's flower shop...and discovers her dead. Is the murderer one of the two obvious suspects, or is something more sinister-even bizarre-going on? Brooklyn had better find the clever killer soon or more than her chance at prime time may be canceled...permanently.


  1. I am looking forward to reading this book. Brooklyn is one of my favourite people. Her and Derek sound even in more murder and mayhem than usual. Thank you for doing this article.

  2. I stopped by your blog today. Great review.
