Ripped from the Pages by Kate Carlisle
Kate Carlisle is one of my favorite authors. She really knows how to create a good, casual mystery. Brooklyn Wainwright, bookbinder extraordinaire and unfortunate dead body magnet, is back for another murder mystery this time in her hometown of Dharma. When the family winery begins an excavation of one of their storage caves, no one expects to find a 70-year-old dead body along with priceless treasures. Of course, Brooklyn and her hunky ex-MI6 boyfriend Derek are on the case. Ripped from the Pages is an easy summer read with a few twists to keep it interesting. I love the characters of Brooklyn and Derek and how they have evolved through the series. If you like mysteries, give Kate Carlisle a try!
A Cookbook Conspiracy by Kate Carlisle
Review: Another entertaining Brooklyn Wainwright mystery involving blackmail, British spies during the American Revolution and a ton of gourmet food. I enjoy Ms. Carlisle’s mysteries immensely. Her characters feel real and unique.

Review: Kate Carlisle’s latest addition to her Bibliophile Mystery series is entertaining as always. Heroine Brooklyn Wainwright is funny and accessible and her man, Derek Stone, is a modern-day Mr. Darcy without the haughtiness. I especially like Brooklyn’s predilection for good food. It was very enjoyable. On a side note, I’ve decided that I’m a good consumer of mysteries because I sorta just go with the flow and therefore end up always surprised at the ending. Or maybe I’m just a bit dim in this area… can’t tell. Either way, I enjoy a good whodunit.
