Teaser Tuesday 26: If Books Could Kill

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab your current read.
* Open to a random page.
* Share (at least) two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title & author, too, so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!


If Books Could Kill is the second in the Bibliophile Mystery series by Kate Carlisle. I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed this book. Though the mystery is good, it's the zany cast of characters that truly makes this series shine. The author's wry wit and heroine's often hilarious misadventures kept me laughing throughout. I am already impatient for book three—which isn't out until November. (Whimper)


If the police didn't know I was teaching a bookbinding class, they would think I was carrying a small arsenal. I suppose a glue stick could be considered a dangerous weapon if you used it to poke somebody's eye out.

(pg 214)






About the Book:
Murder is easy-on paper.

Book restoration expert Brooklyn Wainwright is attending the world-renowned Edinburgh Book Fair when her ex Kyle shows up with a bombshell. He has an original copy of a scandalous text that could change history—and humiliate the beloved British monarchy.

When Kyle turns up dead, the police are convinced Brooklyn's the culprit. But with an entire convention of suspects, Brooklyn's conducting her own investigation to find out if the motive for murder was a 200-year-old secret—or something much more personal.

That's so funny! In highschool, I used to carry craft supplies with me, scissors and glue sticks, I would ALWAYS get stopped and asked why I had them with me.

Heather said...

Book: Would you be refering to Lorna Barrett's Booktown series? I have the first in that one, but have not read it yet. I've heard some mixed reviews on that series.

Pam: Thank you, happy to share! *G*

Chrissie: It is a funny book. This series is a fun one!

Jess: LOL...that's usually me now. Pity you can't carry most supplies with you on airplanes anymore. I always carried a book and a cross-stitch project on long trips, but scissors are kind of necessary in stitching and now taboo. Guess it's good I no longer have the means to travel. :-\

Zia: Thank you! *vbg*
