"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."-- Provided by publisher.

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.
