Rare-books expert Brooklyn Wainwright is invited to the 50th birthday party of her neighbor Suzie's aunt Grace. A retired founder of a major video game corporation, Grace is a larger-than-life character who's turned her Lake Tahoe mansion into a fun house. Part of the fun involves a seance, but after the lights flicker, one guest is dead, poisoned by a cocktail intended for Grace. It seems someone is determined to turn Grace's playful palatial estate into a house of horrors. Brooklyn suspects the key to the killer's identity may lie in the roman a clef Grace has written about her life. With Grace in great peril, "must-read" takes on a whole new meaning, as Brooklyn tries to stop a murderer who's through playing around....

I have to say, it was pretty silly to be "snowed in" up to the window sills one minute, then going for a walk the next. The author also seemed to think someone could bury a bird at that time of year in anything but snow. Very silly. Otherwise, a fun story, as usual and got me through the long drive.
This series is so awesome because we get to go behind the scenes of restoring books. The book is realistic, always a twisty end that I can't guess in the first few chapters. Peril in Paperback takes us on a journey to the world of a rich woman who made her money in computer game programming. Pay careful attention because there are a lot of characters to follow. You might need to make a little list. Not a deterrent, just could help in the course of finding out who done it.
The reader to start with. I do not like her voices at all.
I have until now.
Voices were all just too cute.
I am not sure.
This is such a come down from 1 through 3 which I thoroughly enjoyed.
