Kate Carlisle's Once Upon A Spine

Please forgive the later posting today, I had an unfortunate accident with my ankle which actually afforded me the time to read and finish this book for a review early!
I finished Kate Carlisle's , Once Upon A Spine this morning. Out June 6th this is the 11th book in the Bibliophile Mystery Series and it is a lovely read.  Calm and easy actually this story was lovely to read as main character Brooklyn and her parents meet her future in laws, meanwhile just across the street chaos ensues when one of the shop owners is murdered and another injured. Romance and betrayal, books and bewitching in laws, this is a welcome cozy mystery. I loved the cover of this book and the Alice and Wonderland influence of the story.

In this Bibliophile Mystery from the New York Times bestselling author of Books of a Feather, San Francisco bookbinder Brooklyn Wainwright stumbles through the looking glass in a tale of murder, rare books, and a quest for the perfect pie…Brooklyn's oh-so-proper future in-laws are traveling from England to meet her, and if that's not enough to set her on edge, rumors abound that the charming Courtyard shops across the street may be replaced by high-rise apartments. Their trendy neighborhood will be ruined unless Brooklyn and her fiancĂ©, Derek Stone, can persuade the shopkeepers not to sell. But with a rare edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland causing bad blood at the Brothers Bookshop and a string of petty vandalism making everyone nervous, Brooklyn and Derek feel like they're attempting six impossible things before breakfast. Then the owner of the Rabbit Hole juice bar is felled by his own heavy shelves, and the local cobbler lies dead beside him. An accident . . . or something more sinister? Things get curiouser and curiouser when a second priceless copy of Alice is discovered. Will it stir up more trouble within the close-knit community?  As the Brits descend, Brooklyn learns they're not so stuffy after all. Derek's dad is won over with chocolate cream pie, and his psychic mum would kill to help Brooklyn solve this murder—before another victim takes a tumble.
