"From the New York Times bestselling author of Ripped from the Pages...San Francisco book-restoration expert Brooklyn Wainwright's latest project is for the birds, but it may have her running for her life. Brooklyn's friend Ian runs the Covington Library, which is hosting an exhibit featuring John James Audubon's massive masterpiece, Birds of America, currently on loan from an Arab sheik. During the gala celebrating the book, she is approached by Jared Mulrooney, the president of the National Birdwatchers Society, who urgently needs Brooklyn's skilled hands to repair a less high-profile book of Audubon drawings that's fallen victim to spilled wine. At the same party, Brooklyn is flying high after she's asked to refurbish and appraise a rare copy of Poor Richard's Almanac. But everything runs afoul later that evening when Mulrooney's body is discovered in the library. Rumors fly about a motive for murder. Perhaps Mulrooney wanted to sink his claws into the pricey Audubon book, but Brooklyn believes the man died fighting off a daring thief. Soon more troubles ruffle Brooklyn's feathers. Her parents pop in for a visit with an unsavory friend in tow, and there's a strange man on her tail. With danger beginning to circle Brooklyn's every move, it's clear she must find answers before things really go south"-- Provided by publisher.

I love and highly recommend this series by Kate Carlisle, except for Books of a Feather. Books of a Feather is not nearly as good as the 9 books that precede it. Finding a dead body and then sitting down to dinner defies logic / reason / sanity for anyone much less our heroine and her umpteenth dead body and her former M6 fiancé. I can't understand how the author or publisher allowed this scene to remain in the book. I sincerely hope the next 2 books are up to Kate's normally 5 of 5 stars standard.

The great descriptions of the technicalities of book restoration kept me reading this otherwise hokey mystery. The author is also good at describing delicious food. So you have a dead guy found in the open doorway of the heroine's apartment, and following a brief bit of hand wringing, the group sits down to eat waffles.

I want to give it a 4 star because the murder mystery is fun, and the mom is hilarious, and the book mending help is great. I want to give it a 1 star because OMG at least 1/3 of the book tells what happened in previous books (what you're out of ideas, or just lazy and fluffing up to get more money for more pages?) And the almost, but not blatant, racial stereotyping of Chinese offends me, means I'm never going to actually recommend this book to any one. Start with the first of the series, and pass on this one.
