The 6. book in the Bibliophilie-Mystery-Series by Kate Carlisle
I love this series so much, I had to buy the audible-edition to the e-book I purchased and read long ago. So it's the second time I've gone through this book.
I can highly recommend it. The narration in the audible-edition is very well done.
Rare books and antiquities expert Brooklyn Wainwright is thrilled to be invited to the fiftieth birthday party of her neighbor Suzie's aunt Grace. A retired founder of a major video game corporation, Grace is a larger-than-life character who's turned her Lake Tahoe mansion into a fun house, full of everything from pinball machines and giant props to secret passageways and trap doors. Brooklyn is most excited to catalog Grace's extensive collection of rare paperback pulp fiction.
Part of the fun involves a s ance, but after the lights flicker, one guest is dead, poisoned by a cocktail intended for Grace. It seems someone is determined to turn Grace's playful palatial estate into a house of horrors. Brooklyn suspects the key to the killer's identity may lie in the roman clef Grace has written about her life. With Grace in great peril, "must-read" takes on a whole new meaning, as Brooklyn tries to stop a murderer who's through playing around...
I have to say, it was pretty silly to be "snowed in" up to the window sills one minute, then going for a walk the next. The author also seemed to think someone could bury a bird at that time of year in anything but snow. Very silly. Otherwise, a fun story, as usual and got me through the long drive.
