"Brooklyn Wainwright is thrilled to be appearing on the San Francisco edition of the hit TV show This Old Attic as a rare-book expert and appraiser. Her first subject is a very valuable first-edition copy of the classic children's story The Secret Garden,which is owned by a flower vendor named Vera. Once she hears what her book is worth, Vera is eager to have Brooklyn recondition it for resale. But after the episode airs, a furious man storms onto the set, claiming that Vera found the first edition at his garage sale, and he wants it back--or else. Brooklyn is relieved that she's put The Secret Garden in a safe place, but Randolph Rayburn, the handsome host of This Old Attic, is terrified by the man's threats. He confides in Brooklyn that he fears he is being stalked by the show's former creator and star, who was fired when ratings declined. In the days that follow, several violent incidents occur on the set, and Brooklyn is almost killed, leaving both her and her security expert boyfriend, Derek, shaken. Is someone after Brooklyn and the book? Or has Randolph's stalker become more desperate? And then Brooklyn visits Vera's flower shop...and discovers her dead. Is the murderer one of the two obvious suspects, or is something more sinister--even bizarre--going on? Brooklyn had better find the clever killer soon or more than her chance at prime time may be canceled...permanently"--… (mais)

The TV show THIS OLD ATTIC is visiting San Francisco and Brooklyn Wainwright has been asked to do the book appraisals for the shows that will be filming in the city. The first book that she is asked to appraise is a signed first addition of The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Realizing the magnificent condition as well as the signature of the author, Brooklyn informs the owner (who paid $3 at a yard sale) of the high value and offers to make a few minor repairs that will have the book garner several thousands more than her current appraisal. The owner is ecstatic and gives the book to Brooklyn for the repairs. When Brooklyn visits the owner's shop to pickup the deposit, no check just a dead body. Is this related to the man who had attacked her in the parking lot of the theater where the show is being filmed?? Is he the real owner of the book?

Not only is Brooklyn in apparent danger but the show's host also has a stalker which is making the entire episode of THIS OLD ATTIC appraisals a bit dangerous, but have no fear, Derek Stone, Brooklyn's live-in boyfriend/security specialist is at her side and investigating who may be behind the murder as well as the other incidents at the theater.

Really enjoying catching up with Brooklyn and Derek. Recognizing old characters and being introduced to new regulars is keeping the series fresh. ( )

Good , but with a somewhat weak ending, as a result of throwing in whopper changes on seemingly minor characters. ( )

Oooh only one book left in the series that I am enjoying so much I hate to have it end. ( )

This was the first book I read of this series, and I was drawn to it because I love books, and I love mysteries. This was cute, but not deep. It is more of a "light" murder mystery. Everything was a little too pat, but it was still enjoyable. ( )

Brooklyn Wainwright is a bookbinder in the San Francisco. Her specialty is rare and old books. Because of her expertise, she is tapped to appear on the TV show, "This Old Attic" - (think "American Road Show"), to do appraisals on books. She is excited and delighted since it could lead to more work!

Her first appraisal is for an first edition copy of Frances Hodgson Burnett's "The Secret Garden." Signed by the author and in exquisite condition, she gives it a high value. The owner is excited over it, as she wants to sell.

The next day, after a clip of the interview airs on the nightly news, Brooklyn is accosted in the studio parking lot by an irate man demanding the return of the book and threatening violence to her and the book's owner if he doesn't get the book back. Brooklyn then finds herself being stalked wherever she goes.

Meanwhile in the studio, Randolph Rayburn, the host of the "This Old Attic" also feels he is being stalked. He can't get anyone to believe him, even when he gets ill for no apparent reason, or strange things happen to him.

When the lady who brought the book in for appraisal is found dead in her flower shop, things turn real - as in real dangerous.

With the help of Derek Stone, her live-in beau who also owns his own security company; and their new neighbour Alex Monroe, a high powered executive with model looks and an intriguing background of her own, Brooklyn sets out to solve why the demand for the book, why the murder of the lady, who the stalker is and how it all ties together...or do these things all tie together?

Being a book nut myself, I enjoyed reading about book binding and the beautiful books she appraised. The characters were interesting and worked well together. I will definitely look for more of Carlisle's books. ( )
