    The streets of San Francisco would be lined with hardcovers if rare book expert Brooklyn Wainwright had her way. And her mentor wouldn't be lying in a pool of his own blood on the eve of a celebration for his latest book restoration. With his final breath he leaves Brooklyn a cryptic message, and gives her a priceless - and supposedly cursed - copy of Goethe's Faust for safekeeping.

    Waste of credits

    no!! for Kate Carlisle Yes!! for Eileen Stevens

    Brooklyn's chance to restore a rare first edition of Beauty and the Beast seems a fairytale come true - until she realizes the book last belonged to an old friend. Three years ago, Max Adams fell in love with Emily and gave her the copy of Beauty and the Beast. Soon afterward, he died in a car crash, and Brooklyn has always suspected his ex-girlfriend and her jealous beau. Now she decides to find out who sold the book and return it to its rightful owner - Emily.

    Interesting plot, had me wanting to listen and rep

    Haven,t read any print versions, but I find it is always good to read the book and listen, gets the imagination going.

    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.

    Disappointment

    The reader to start with. I do not like her voices at all.

    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....
