Review: Buried in Books

Title: Buried in Books

Series: Bibliophile Mystery #12

Author: Kate Carlisle

Release Date: June 26th, 2018

Rating: 3.5/5 Stars

Synopsis from Goodreads: Brooklyn has done everything she can to prepare for her nuptials with Derek and simply can't wait to start her new life with him. But things don't go as planned when Brooklyn's college frenemies, Heather and Sara, surprise her with a last-minute bridal shower. However, Brooklyn is touched when the women gift her rare copies of The Three Musketeers and The Red Fairy Book. When one frenemy is found murdered and one of the rare books is deemed a forgery, Brooklyn can't help but wonder if the victim played a part in this fraud or if a murderer is still out there scamming and killing. Wedding jitters, counterfeit books, and a killer on the loose could ruin Brooklyn and Derek's big day. Can they make it down the aisle before more bodies start stacking up?

My Review: This is another great addition to the bibliophile mystery series. I very much enjoyed the wedding details and the way that the mystery was worked in along side the events of the wedding. The mystery was an interesting one that brought up a lot of past strife between Brooklyn and her friends. The book was a little slower than usual though and it took me a while to get into it. The mystery didn’t begin until about 40% into the book. I also wished the book the mystery centered around was focused on a little bit more. It almost felt like an after thought. Overall though I enjoyed the story and look forward to the next book in the series. If you love cozy mysteries then this is a great series to check out!

*I received this book from Berkley and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*
