There may be grave consequences for bookbinder Brooklyn Wainwright as she attempts to solve two murders tied to one book…

Brooklyn’s chance to restore a rare first edition of Beauty and the Beast seems a fairytale come true–until she realizes the book last belonged to an old friend of hers. Three years ago, Max Adams, a renowned, brawny papermaker, fell in love with a stunning beauty, Emily, and gave her the copy of Beauty and the Beast as a symbol of their love. Soon afterward, he died in a car crash, and Brooklyn has always suspected his possessive ex-girlfriend and her jealous beau.
