Ivonne Rovira (goodreadscommiss_ivonne) | 98 comments Someone has added an edition of The Cherry Cheesecake Murder with the ISBN-13 of novel is Cherry Cheesecake Murder, as she never uses articles in her titles. But I believe the ISBN is wrong, too.

What should I do?

Susie (dragonsusie) | 2472 comments I've found the book your refering to: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1....

Now that isn't a usual ISBN and when I Google it, it just refers back to that book here on GR. So it's most likely a duplicate of a different edition. But it's not obvious which edition it is, as no part of that number sequence in the ISBN-13 field matches to any existing edition as far as I can make out.

Have you any idea which edition it should be? If so, then we can get a Super to merge them.

It shouldn't be deleted outright, as 9 people have added it. But if you post the info in this thread you can say which book you think it should be merged with and a Super can deal with it (we can only delete books with less than 5 adds, anyway).
