    Fun and Adventure

    Fun and Adventure James Bond, escape rooms and murder. What more can a reader ask for? Kate Carlisle has written another fun and fast-paced Bibliophile Mystery with The Book Supremacy. Brooklyn and Derek have just returned to San Francisco after a Parisian honeymoon. An old friend of Derek’s has opened a spy shop near their apartment, complete with surveillance gear, James Bond novels and escape rooms. It is all fun and games until one of the employees ends up dead. Then the real adventure begins. It is up to Brooklyn, Derek and a cast of interesting characters to solve the murder. I enjoy this series because of the well-drawn characters and book collecting tidbits that pop up throughout the series. For a fun and well-constructed mystery, give The Book Supremacy a try.

    THE BOOK SUPREMACY by Kate Carlisle

    THE BOOK SUPREMACY by Kate Carlisle is the 13th book in the Bibliophile Mystery series. It the story of Brooklyn Wainwright, book-restoration expert, now the delighted wife of Derek Stone. It start with them enjoying their honeymoon in Paris and continues with the adventures they get involved in once back home in San Francisco. While in Paris, Brooklyn has the opportunity to buy the perfect gift for Derek as a remembrance of their honeymoon in Paris – a first edition copy of “The Spy Who Loved Me”. It’s perfect because of her love of books and for the past employment of her husband. While in Paris, Derek runs into an old buddy from his spy day, Ned, who asks him to give a message to Owen, another old buddy who had opened a spy shop, SPECTRE, back in their home town. Once back in San Francisco, Brooklyn and Derek try to get back into their normal routines, but find time to visit everyone, including Owen. Brooklyn shows him the book she had bought Derek. He immediately gets excited thinking what a wonderful display and draw it would be for his upcoming one year anniversary for the store. They agree and decide to loan Owen the book since the security would be exceptional since it IS a security store. It’s at the store that they meet the Jackals, a group on young writers who hang around the store for ideas and to bounce ideas off one another. Between Derek’s situation at work with Lark, finding out that Ned has been murdered with the arrival of the letter from his wife, and the attempted theft of the book loaned out which ended with the murder of Tailor, one of the Jackals, Brooklyn and Derek have their hands full and minds racing to find the answers. How can they legally get rid of Lark, who is pure evil towards Brooklyn? Are Brooklyn and Derek in danger now too? Were the murders of Ned and Tailor connected? Can they solve the murders before they themselves become a victim? The author’s descriptions are so right on that you feel like you are in Paris experiencing the sights, smells and tastes along with Brooklyn and Derek. You can feel the tension and animosity between Lark and Brooklyn. You are aware of the dangers lurking around every corner. I’ve never been in an escape room, but after reading about Brooklyn’s experience in one through the author’s wonderful descriptive details, I felt like I was in the room with them rushing to find the key to get out. Kate Carlisle is spot on in giving details to make you informed, aware and turning pages. I applaud the author in making each book in this series the best – until the next one comes out which then becomes the best. She keeps us coming back for more and I await with great excitement for book #14. It was very nice to see the recipes talked about in the story included at the back of the book. I know my mouth watered while reading about them in the story and I can’t wait to try them out personally. I highly recommend THE BOOK SUPREMACY and this author! It can definitely be read as a standalone, but you will want to devour each and every book of this series as well this author’s other books.

    The Book Supremacy

    This is another fabulous mystery by one of my favorite authors! Brooklyn is a bookbinder who manages to get entangled in yet another murder committed by someone who is out to acquire a certain rare book.

    The 13th A Bibliophile Mystery--Delightful

    The Book Supremacy is the thirteenth delightful installment in A Bibliophile Mystery series. I have been a fan of this book themed mystery series since the very beginning. I eagerly await each new installment and then devour it quickly. The Book Supremacy is a charming story with well-developed characters that takes us to France, wine country, and San Francisco. Kate Carlisle has a charming writing style that engages the reader and keeps them engrossed until the very last word. The descriptions of Paris transported me to the location. I could envision the green book stalls, the Seine, and the streets of Paris. The same can be said for Dharma and San Francisco. I especially loved SPECTRE with the various spy gadgets, books, café and escape rooms. I found the escape rooms to be intriguing and they sound like an hour of good fun. It is always fascinating to learn more about Brooklyn’s book restoration work and the lovely creations she makes from paper. The mystery is complex, and I like how everything tied together. There is action, suspense, a twist or two with the added touch of espionage. The mystery can be solved by armchair sleuths before the reveal, but that did not hinder my reading experience. While The Book Supremacy can be read alone, I heartily recommend reading the series in order (you will not be disappointed). It allows you to learn about Brooklyn, her work, friends and how she and Derek came to be together. I could not wait to get to the end of the story to find out what happened, but then I was sad that I had finished it (and must wait a year for another installment). There are recipes at the end of the book (Brooklyn does love good food and chocolate). The Book Supremacy is a story for fans of the series, the characters, and those who truly love books. The Book Supremacy has good food, intrigue, spy gadgets, a plethora of books, former spies, a cute cat named Charlie, a murder, escape rooms and one curious book restorer plus her dashing English husband.
