This book might have sat on my shelf for a long time, but at the last minute I picked it up this weekend to take on the boat. I needed a book that I didn't really care what happened to it and for better or worse, this one fell in that category. It is a library discard.

Serendipity helped me make a good choice. This book was a lot of fun and kept my interest. The main characters are deeply involved in the world of books - one of my pet subjects.

Having read a previous book by this author that I liked, I was not disappointed by this one. In fact, I enjoyed it even more. However, I can't really say what I liked without making it a plot-spoiler. Here's the description from the back of the book:

I've enjoyed the other books in the series, although they are a little formulaic. It was nice to have Alex's wife, Sarah, front and center in this one. I was beginning to think she would never really appear in the books. This one differed from the others in that it is set primarily in the United States rather than London. Using Samuel Pepys's diary as the central theme was good. I have read it but I learned more abut it in this book. Some of the characters were less well-drawn than I would have...more
Very enjoyable. A little slow initially, but it got going fast after that. Plenty of unexpected twists to keep me puzzled. Oddly I found one small section with several typos... perhaps added later. Otherwise well edited as far as I could tell on a quick read. Good distraction from an upset stomach.
This sixth book in the Booklover's Mystery series certainly shows improvement over the first one. There is more about books and publishing. The plotting is crisper and more focussed. The protagonist is finally married, although there is still far too much about his infatuation. Overall, while I enjoyed this volume more than the first in the series, I don't really feel a need to track down the intervening titles.

Its nice and racy. however it jumps, the silent looks between the protagonists, leaves you wondering what exactly happened! so there is a lot of underlying stuff that i could not figure out, but all in all a good read and now i know what can happen when things as valuable as uncatalogued stuff surfaces! As a keeper of books, i better be careful!:-)
Carol Best
This was the best one in the series so far in my opinion. Poor Alex Plumtree...the author beats him to a pulp in every one of her books. Too much violence...let's calm down...surely all these attacks are not necessary to the story.
❂ Jennifer (reviews on BookLikes)
Not as good as the previous book in the series, but still a good read. The protagonist gets into an unreasonable number of near death situations in each book, imho. But the lore is fascinating for anyone who enjoys all things biblio.
Absorbing, enlightening and suspenseful: a 21st-century novel built around 17th-century chronicler Samuel Pepys.
This whole series was fabulous. Some of the best "bibliomysteries" that I have read.
I have enjoyed all of they Alex Plumtree series.
