Book restoration expert Brooklyn Wainwright is attending the world-renowned Book Fair when her ex Kyle shows up with a bombshell. He has an original copy of a scandalous text that could change history - and humiliate the beloved British monarchy. When Kyle turns up dead, the police are convinced Brooklyn's the culprit. But with an entire convention of suspects, Brooklyn's conducting her own investigation to find out if the motive for murder was a 200-year-old secret - or something much more personal.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

the book had possibilities but was obscured by the bad character voices

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I like a good actor in the narrator role; this narrator sounded confused about her characters
