“I loved how the author was able to bring so much detail to Heather and Sara, almost making them a main character of the book before the chaos starts. It’s these deep characterizations from the author that makes me come back to these books again and again.”

I always get excited for a new Kate Carlisle book and this one was so exception. As book twelve in the Bibliophile Mystery series, Brooklyn finds herself in some trouble again when some past friends come back into her life, carrying their extra baggage along with them. With her wedding on the way, this is not the kind of thing that Brooklyn wants to deal with, but she is forced into the foray when one of her friends is found murdered.
I really like the premise of this book. Having Heather and Sara really made things interesting and I could really feel for Brooklyn in this book. I loved how the author was able to bring so much detail to Heather and Sara, almost making them a main character of the book before the chaos starts. It’s these deep characterizations from the author that makes me come back to these books again and again. I can come into this series, not knowing anything at all about the book, but nonetheless, feeling a strong connection to the characters whether or not they end up alive or dead by the end of the book. This is hard to do, especially with already twelve books in the series, but Carlisle manages to do this well time and time again. I’m impressed.
The romance between Derek and Brooklyn is at an all-time high and I really loved getting the opportunity to see this romance grow. So in addition to the great mysteries in this series, I think Carlisle can make a wicked love story too.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
