Publisher's Summary

Murder is always a bestseller… first in the new bibliophile mystery series!
The streets of San Francisco would be lined with hardcovers if rare book expert Brooklyn Wainwright had her way. And her mentor wouldn't be lying in a pool of his own blood on the eve of a celebration for his latest book restoration. With his final breath he leaves Brooklyn a cryptic message, and gives her a priceless - and supposedly cursed - copy of Goethe's Faust for safekeeping. Brooklyn suddenly finds herself accused of murder and theft, thanks to the humorless - but attractive - British security officer who finds her kneeling over the body. Now she has to read the clues left behind by her mentor if she is going to restore justice.

NICE TYPICAL COZY mystery

Good mystery in the cozy style. narrator's accent is fine. no lurid scenes. i nearly didn't get this becuase of the bad reviews. after finishing it i wander if those reviews are of this book. the only connection i could find is that there is a minor character with a british accent. while that accent is not perfect it is not that bad, and i listen to a lot of british narrators. the main character and most other are American so no problem. as for the supposed lurid scenes that remind some of the reviewers of romances_ no idea what they are talking about???? Brooklyn doesn't even have a boyfriend rough there are signs this will change in the next book but for now only a platonic interest and no loose behavior what so ever. If you like cozy mysteries you will enjoy this.
