THE GRIM READER is book fourteen in the Bibliophile Mystery series and although all the mysteries can be read as a standalone, I always suggest reading this series in order because some of the scenes mentioned other parts in the other books. Plus, you can see the romance develop between Brooklyn and Derek, her husband.
Now, after the last book, which became one of my favorite books of 2019, I was really looking forward to see what Kate Carlisle would do next. This time, Brooklyn and Derek are in Dharma at a book festival.
I felt like this book progressed a little more slowly than I would like. Especially in the beginning, it takes a while for things to really get moving. However, I do still enjoy Carlisle’s easy writing and flow. She creates a sense of community really well in this series and it’s nice to see different relationships unfold with their mothers.
I’ve noticed that the books are becoming more and more intense in terms of the mysteries now. I guess that comes with writing so many books in the series. But things are not so over-the-top that they aren’t believable, so I really enjoy that aspect of the book. I look forward to seeing what Kate Carlisle releases next.
