Publisher's Summary

Brooklyn has been happily settling into married life with her hunky husband, security expert Derek Stone, when a little black book arrives in the mail on a quiet Saturday afternoon. The book is a rare British first edition of Rebecca, and inside, Brooklyn finds a note from her old friend, Claire Quinn, asking her to restore it to its former luster. The two women met while working as expert appraisers on the television show This Old Attic. Brooklyn appraised books on the show, and Claire's expertise was in antique British weaponry, but they bonded over their shared love of gothic novels. 

The day after the book arrives, Claire shows up at Brooklyn and Derek's home - in disguise. She believes her life is in danger, and as soon as Derek sits her down and questions her, Claire reveals that in the last few weeks, she has experienced two near-fatal attacks, along with weird notes left in her mailbox, hang-up phone calls, and one very scary car chase. She's afraid that her past is catching up to her. When Claire was only nine years old, she witnessed several men, one of whom was her father, planning a terrible crime. And now it seems that she's been followed, bringing the threats against her literally to Brooklyn's doorstep. Can Brooklyn page through the clues to keep her friend's past from destroying their future?

outdid herself with boring

sometimes this author can give her main character the most inane and boring rambling of thoughts and she outdid herself in this book. I gave it a 3 because it wasn't a total waste of money but was very boring. I kept waiting for it to pick up and for the heroine to overcome her stupidity and neither one happened. narration was good as usual.

Some technical issues

As always, I love Brooklyn and the crew. The story is great but something was odd.
By ten minutes in I was ready to return the book. Timing was off and the narrator sounded like she was falling asleep. Then I realized the problem was technical.
I increased listening speed to 1.10. I never do this but the change was amazing.
Voila!! Enjoyable listen.

Not my Favorite

I tried hard to like this boom and I simply couldn't get into it.
I was sad because I love this series. To be honest I can't even tell you who did it and why.
I hope the next in the series won't be like that especially since it takes a while for a new story to come out.
