One bookbinder- One bully. One beau. Looks like someone has got to go . . .

When it comes to rare books and antiquities, Brooklyn Wainwright is a master. That's why she has returned to San Francisco to teach a bookbinding class at Bay Area Book Arts. Unfortunately, BABA director Layla Fontaine is a horrendous host who pitches fits and lords it over her subordinates. With the help of her beau, Derek Stone, Brooklyn manages to put on a brave face and endure.

But someone else is not so forgiving. Layla is found dead from a gunshot wound, and Brooklyn is bound and determined to investigate. But when Layla's past ends up intertwined with Derek's, Brooklyn realizes that the case is much more personal than she thought - and the killer might want to close the book on her for good.

This was the third book in the series and it was an interesting story. The characters are fun and reading about bookbinding is all new to me.

Always fun. Can be read in a couple (very enjoyable) hours. The cast of characters is really a cast of CHARACTERS!

This is #3 in the bibliophile mysteries. This is a light read. To me the author goes a little long on suspects and drags out the story. In the first two books the murderer was not obvious this time it was.
