Summary: (from goodreads) When she receives an exquisite copy of the Kama Sutra from her best friend, Robin, to appraise and restore, Brooklyn Wainwright anticipates both recreating a beautiful book and spicing up her love life. But then Robin's apartment is ransacked, and the great guy she recently met is murdered in her bed. Now Robin is the #1 suspect. Obviously, exploring the Kama Sutra's bliss will have to wait until after Brooklyn finds the killer...

To say that this book was great is an understatement. I mean this story completely blew my mind. I was at the edge of my seat the entire time I read the book and I read it in a day! I felt as if I was on a roller coaster ride and never wanted to come off. The twists and turns that this story took kept me guessing the entire time and once I thought I knew who the killer was or who was responsible, “BAM” something new or a new lead would come up and completely baffle me. I thought everyone was a suspect. The best part was the suspense. I would never have thought that a book would have such immense suspense but this one did. Every time someone knocked on Brooklyn’s door, I thought it was a bad guy. While at a visit to her mom’s house, her mom yells “Oh my God”, “Oh my God” immediately I thought “that’s it, something’s going to happen” but it wasn’t what I thought it was, my heart was beating fast!! 

I truly am impressed with Kate Carlisle’s writing and I am definitely going to purchase some more of her stories. They are intense, intriguing and captivating! Wow and the main character Brooklyn’s job is truly unique. I could not begin to tell you how fascinating, rare and impressive her career is. The mystery in this book will leave you guessing the entire time. Oh but wait there’s more! Romance. It has a splash of romance that completes this book to receive the 5 trees it deserves. Great Job. I highly recommend this book.


  1. Thanks for the great review!
    I've been playing with the idea to read one of the books from this series, in fact I've laid eyes on "If books could kill", but I was still a bit unsure ... but not anymore :-D !

  2. The cover looked like a kid mystery book, but then I read the description about the Kama Sutra and realized just how wrong I was! The story sounds interesting, I might have to check this one out.
