Brooklyn has always been a little obsessed with food, but it was her sister, Savannah, who became a chef, graduating from the prestigious Cordon Bleu school in Paris. She and her classmates all went on to successful careers, but none of them achieved culinary superstardom like Savannah's ex-boyfriend Baxter Cromwell.
When Baxter invites the old gang to participate in his new restaurant's gala opening, in San Francisco, Savannah asks Brooklyn to restore a tattered cookbook as a present for him. Shortly after receiving the gift, Baxter is found dead, with Savannah kneeling over him, bloody knife in hand, and the rare cookbook has disappeared. Brooklyn knows her sister didn't kill him, and she suspects the missing cookbook might lead to the real villain.

"Carlisle keeps the suspense high as Brooklyn sleuths her way through a host of chefs and other suspects to the satisfying resolution." (Publishers Weekly)
I love a good mystery
I only wish more of her book were available on audio. Narrator was excellent as well as the story was great.
Kept me guessing with interesting twists and turns
Listen to one and you will want to follow the series.
I love Brooklyn! She is so amazing. I hated that Audible didn't have the other three books, so I went and ordered the other 3 not on audible. Brooklyn and her odd family are so enjoyable.
I hated that Audible didn't have the other three books, so I went and ordered the other 3 not on audible. Brooklyn and her odd family are so enjoyable. I find myself rereading these books so often. This one showcased a different sister, and More to our Mysterious Derrick's background.
This book didn't have Minka in it, that made me sad. But I so didn't like how it was more about cooking than it was about books. But, its ok, once I got past the food fact I loved the book mystery, still Less About Books!
