Bookbinder and amateur sleuth Brooklyn Wainwright is obsessed with a rare edition of Alice in Wonderland, but the arguments among the store's owners are disturbing. Their fights, and then a murder are disruptive enough to distract Brooklyn from a visit from her parents and her future in-laws. Carlisle (Books of a Feather) successfully combines family, a tight-knit community, and booklore in the entertaining 11th cozy outing.—LH
