Short Description : IF BOOKS COULD KILL BY KATE CARLISLE – In If Books Could Kill, rare book expert Brooklyn Wainwright goes to Edinburgh, Scotland to attend the Book Fair. A friend approaches her with an incredible find, what could be a book of heretofore undiscovered poems by Robert Burns and proof of a scandal that will forever shatter the world’s view of Scotland’s poetic hero. Someone wants to stop Brooklyn from authenticating the find – enough to commit murder. As the last person to see the victim alive, Brooklyn is the prime suspect. Now, in a foreign country, she must evade the police and the killer – and oh yes, the freemasons who have vowed to protect Robert Burns’s name at all costs.
Janet Evanovich is one of my favorite writers, and Kate Carlisle is right up there with her. She’s even given Brooklyn a delicious romantic foil in British detective Derek Stone.
