"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"-- Provided by publisher.

I enjoy the Bibliophile mystery series. Brooklyn and her friends, family and boyfriend are all people I'd like to have in my own life. The San Francisco setting and the wine country north of there add to the flavour of this series. This particular book gives us a taste of behind the scenes of a television show that is rather like Antiques Roadshow. Perhaps what I like best is how much Brooklyn savours books -- the story, the binding, the materials that go into the creation of the book. Makes me love my own (not rare or antique) books all the more.
