"Blending a love of food and a love of books, this delightful cozy mystery features Brooklyn, a professional bookbinder, and her sister, Savannah, a Cordon Bleu-trained chef. Susie Berneis gamely bestows each newly introduced character with a distinctive voice, from the most sonorousÑfor Brit Derek, Brooklyn's significant otherÑto a breathy Marilyn Monroe pitch for Savannah. Berneis lends the mystery warmth and humor, and the author imparts interesting details on bookbinding and restoration. Savannah's ex-boyfriend, Baxter, hosts a gala to celebrate the opening of his new restaurant, and she asks Brooklyn to restore a rare and valuable eighteenth-century cookbook as a gift for the occasion. Murder, cryptic codes, and ulterior motives ensue. A.W. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
