Brooklyn’s friend Ian runs the Covington Library, which is hosting an exhibit featuring John James Audubon’s massive masterpiece, Birds of America, currently on loan from an Arab sheik. During the gala celebrating the book, she is approached by Jared Mulrooney, the president of the National Birdwatchers Society, who urgently needs Brooklyn’s skilled hands to repair a less high-profile book of Audubon drawings that’s fallen victim to spilled wine.

At the same party, Brooklyn is flying high after she’s asked to refurbish and appraise a rare copy of Poor Richard’s Almanac. But everything runs afoul later that evening when Mulrooney’s body is discovered in the library. Rumors fly about a motive for murder. Perhaps Mulrooney wanted to sink his claws into the pricey Audubon book, but Brooklyn believes the man died fighting off a daring thief.
Soon more troubles ruffle Brooklyn’s feathers. Her parents pop in for a visit with an unsavory friend in tow, and there’s a strange man on her tail. With danger beginning to circle Brooklyn’s every move, it’s clear she must find answers before things really go south . . .

My Thoughts: 

This book follows Brooklyn Wainwright whose helping her friend Genevieve Taylor work through her father's collection of books and make sense of it.  She takes home some books that Genevieve wants to have fixed up.  When she gets home she meets Crane a friend of her fiancee Derek.

When they go to the Covington Library for a bird exhibit Brooklyn meets Jared Mulrooney who need Brooklyn to fix his book next thing Brooklyn knows is he is dead.  After several attempted break ins at her apartment her parents arrive and have a friend of theirs spend the night with them only to wind up dead the next day.  Who is going around killing people and why?  What is the fascination with Brooklyn's apartment?  What book are they after?

This is a cute little series about book binder extraordinaire Brooklyn as she solves mysteries along with repairing books.  She has dealt with her share of mysteries having to do with books everytime and the length people go to swipe a book.  Even so far as to murder for a book!
