Brooklyn's chance to restore a rare first edition of Beauty and the Beast seems a fairytale come true–until she realizes the book last belonged to an old friend of hers. Three years ago, Max Adams, a renowned, brawny papermaker, fell in love with a stunning beauty, Emily, and gave her the copy of Beauty and the Beast as a symbol of their love. Soon afterward, he died in a car crash, and Brooklyn has always suspected his possessive ex-girlfriend and her jealous beau.
Now she decides to find out who sold the book and return it to its rightful owner–Emily. She believes a rare book dealer can assist her, but when she arrives at his shop, she finds him murdered. Is it possible the same couple who may have killed Daniel is now after his edition of Beauty and the Beast? With the help of her handsome boyfriend, Derek Stone, Brooklyn must unravel the murder plot–before she ends up in a plot herself…

About the author ~
Golden Heart and Daphne du Maurier Award wining author Kate Carlisle spent over twenty years working in television production as an Associate Director for game and variety shows, including The Midnight Special, Solid Gold & The Gong Show. She traveled the world as a Dating Game chaperone and performed strange acts of silliness on The Gong Show. She also studied acting and singing, toiled in vineyards, collected books, joined a commune, sold fried chicken, modeled spring fashions and worked for a cruise ship line, but it was the year she spend in law school that finally drover her to begin writing fiction. It seemed the safety way to kill off her professors. Those professors are breathing easier now that Kate spends most of her time writing near the beach in Southern California where she lives with her perfect husband.
A lifelong love of old books and an appreciation of the art of bookbinding led Kate to create the bibliophile mysteries, featuring rare book expert Brooklyn Wainright, whose bookbinding and restoration skills invariably uncover old secrets, treachery and murder. Kate is a member of Sisters In Crime, Mystery Writers of America, International Thrill Writers and Romance Writers of America. She loves to drink good wine and watch other people cook.
Despite the appearance of overnight success, Kate's dream of publication too many, many years to fulfill. If you're wondering why, here's the real scoop.
