Book Beginning: Books of a Feather by Kate Carlisle

A cozy mystery, the tenth in the Bibliophile Mystery series.
Books of a Feather: A Bibliophile Mystery #10 by Kate Carlisle
San Francisco book-restoration expert Brooklyn Wainwright’s latest project is for the birds, but it may have her running for her life. 

First paragraph, first chapter:
The air inside the old bookshop was thick with the heady scents of aged vellum and rich old leathers. Heaven. I breathed in the lovely pulpy odors as I climbed the precarious rolling ladder up to the crowded top shelf to start cataloging books.

The aisles of the shop were narrow, barely three feet wide,  which meant I could reach out and touch the volumes on the sides of the aisle - if I was willing to let go of the wobbly handrail, which I wasn't. 

Page 56: 
"Let her in," Inspector Lee grumbled. "She's already got her footprints all over the place anyway."

Book description: Covington Library is hosting an exhibit of John James Audubon’s massive masterpiece, Birds of America. Brooklyn is approached by Jared Mulrooney, the president of the National Birdwatchers Society, to repair a less high-profile book of Audubon drawings. But when Mulrooney’s body is discovered in the library, rumors fly about a motive for murder.

  3. I love the cover and the book sounds very enjoyable based off of your Friday56 quote! Great post

  4. A cozy mystery set in a bookshop! Sounds good...and I can almost smell the scent of the old books. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “THE BEAUTY OF THE END”

  5. I haven't heard of this series before, but this book does look interesting.

  6. Sounds good, but it must be if it's 10 books in. Happy weekend!
