BOOKS OF A FEATHER by Kate Carlisle
This series (Bibliophile Mysteries) concerns a book binder/conservator who becomes involved with a murder very early on in each book. John James Audubon’s bird paintings figure prominently in this outing. You will learn a wee bit about painting and book conservation while solving an interesting mystery.
Brooklyn, the main character, has a long-term romance that seems to get regularly stalled while she is sleuthing. The mysteries are well plotted and well written with an occasional humorous incident. The characters are well rounded and Carlisle knows and relates interesting information about book binding, collecting and reading along the way.
Series readers will like following Carlisle’s mysteries and characters. These easy to follow mysteries won’t tax your brain but will provide hours of fun.
