 Reviewed by: Tina

 Brooklyn Wainwright is a bookbinder specializing in rare book restorations. Her good friend, Ian is now the head curator and president of the Covington Library and Museum where there is to be a new exhibit of an Audubon book masterpiece “Birds of America”an exciting event that the national Bird Watchers Society are waiting for.

 Jared Mulrooney, president of the National Bird Watchers Society spills wine over the valuable book about birds at the exhibit and asks Brooklyn to repair it. Jared is soon found murdered and between Helping friend Gen, take inventory of her bookshop, Taylor's Fine Books and Gen suspecting her cousin, Billy's dirty dealings with a book collector  and her mother and father's stay at Brooklyn and fiance, Derek's home and the murder of their house guest, Goose after someone broke in.

 Brooklyn wonders if there is a connection between everything that has been happening and with the help of new found friend Inspector Lee whom she is also repairing a rare book for wants to stitch together the clues and find who could possibly kill over a book....again.

Books, dead bodies, suspect lists police investigations and an intriguing mystery and beautiful birds is what made Books of a Feather a great read. The Bibliophile Mysteries are my favorites and I am working on reading them all. Filled with suspenseful and complex villains and Brooklyn and her passion for books and her job as a bookbinder is something I love about her. It's always a treat reading when Brooklyn is in her workshop repairing the books, it's a fascinating art that I love learning about with every new book.

    1. What great timing! I'm so glad you're enjoying RIPPED FROM THE PAGES, Kuzlin. That was a fun book to research--had to tour a bunch of wine caves in California. (The things I do for my readers!) If you're interested, you can see pictures from my research tour on my Pinterest page, www.pinterest.com/booksbykate

  14. Love the premise. Brooklyn has her work cut out for her it seems. Would love to see how she solves this one. Sooner, rather than later. Della at deepotter@peoplepc.com

    1. Thank you, Della! I have such a great time plotting these mysteries. Each modern day mystery echoes the theme of the rare book Brooklyn is restoring. In BOOKS OF A FEATHER, she's restoring two main books--a book of Audubon bird illustrations, and an edition of Poor Richard's Almanack. So while I was plotting the book, I tried to weave in as many sneaky, subtle references as I could to both birds and Benjamin Franklin pieces of wisdom. (I love what I do!)

    2. It shows. That's what makes your stories so good. Love both those books. Been through them at one time or another. Mom sent me her copy of the audubon field guide from the 50's when my 2nd child was born in the 70's. The kids and I used it from time to time. Had a teacher who had Franklin's almanack, appropriately name Mr Paper. He taught business typing when I was in high school. Sometimes I had a real hard time not laughing at him. And not being rude. His ears stuck out like Dumbo's. He really was a nice guy. Lots of really interesting anecdotes about a lot of things. He would tell them as examples and to make a point. Or just to amuse. He was a big fan of Franklin and would give bits and pieces of his history and from his Almanack. Mentioned that he was also a bit of a scoundrel. Actually made me more interested in Franklin. Made him seem more human.

    1. Aren't the covers just the best?! Each time, I think the artist can't possibly do better, and then each cover is my new favorite. I really don't see how they're going to top the cover of BOOKS OF A FEATHER, though.

      Oh, you should visit the Secret Room at KateCarlisle.com! In there, I have 12 Changes puzzles for each Bibliophile Mystery cover. They're challenging and fun!
