In this novel in the New York Times bestselling Bibliophile Mystery series, 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 runs the Covington Library, which is hosting an exhibit featuring John James Audubon’s massive masterpiece, Birds of America. During the gala celebrating the book, she is approached by Jared Mulrooney, the president of the Bay Area Birdwatchers Society, to repair a lesser known book of Audubon drawings.
At the same party, Brooklyn is flying high after she’s asked to refurbish a rare copy of Poor Richard’s Almanack when Mulrooney’s body is discovered in the library. Soon more troubles ruffle Brooklyn’s feathers. Her parents pop in for a visit with an unsavory friend in tow, and there’s a strange man on her tail. With danger beginning to circle Brooklyn’s every move, it’s clear she must find answers before things really go south. . . .

We meet an old friend of Derek's, Crane, who is in town to try to get his not so nice brother to come home. The Covington is hosting an Audubon exhibit of his masterpiece, Birds of America, a book that Crane's ancestor may have done some of the paintings for. At the gala for the exhibit, the president of the National Bird Watchers Society is murdered and of course, our heroine, Brooklyn found him.
In other news, Brooklyn has be asked to appraise and refurbish a rare copy of Poor Richard's Almanack, which would just be very cool, no matter who you are, her parents are in for a visit and boy, do they bring back a surprise!
Questions abound, who is the mystery man with her parents? Who is following Brooklyn and why? Why was the president of the bird watchers killed? Was it because of the Audubon book or some other plot? While Crane is so cool, why is his brother just the opposite and what is he up to? Will Brooklyn and Derek ever get to plan their wedding or will they just elope?
I could go on and on, but the best advice I can give you is to pick up a copy of Books of a Feather and find yourself immersed in a wonderful world, full of intrigue, laughter and love! Dive into Brooklyn and Derek's world, I promise you won't be disappointed or get your feathers ruffled!
I really enjoyed seeing Derek and Brooklyn settled in their condo enjoying their lives and each other. Of course, since this is a cozy mystery evil in the form of several murders comes their way.
Derek introduces Brooklyn to his childhood friend Crane, who is visiting from China on business. Crane's brother Bai lives in San Francisco and Crane wants Bai to return to China to see their Mother. Bai is in love and not inclined to go.
Brooklyn is busy repairing a number of first editions and as her and Derek's home is broken into she tries to figure out which of the rare books the thieves are after and why they are killing people to get it.
This was an engrossing mystery. The plot was intricate and ultimately the denouement had a twist I hadn't seen coming. Since it is now 5 AM, obviously I couldn't put it down. Wonderful mystery with people I really enjoy reading about and a lovely romance; perfect for me.

Als sie einige Zeit später nochmal mit Genevieve sprechen möchte, durchsucht Brooklyn die abgelegenen Teile der Ausstellung und findet dabei die erstochene Leiche von Jared. Sie fragt sich gleich, ob vielleicht das beschädigte Buch etwas mit dem Mord zutun haben könnte.
Am nächsten Abend versucht jemand in Brooklyns Wohnung einzubrechen. Ihre Nachbarin kann die Täterin jedoch in die Flucht schlagen. Ihr Verlobter Derek lässt das Haus am nächsten Abend von einem seiner Mitarbeiter überwachen und tatsächlich kommt es zu einem erneuten Einbruchsversuch bei dem Dereks Angestellter bewusstlos geschlagen wird. Die Situation spitzt sich zu, als der nächste Mord direkt in Brooklyns Wohnung passiert.
Books of a Feather enthält mal wieder einiges Interessantes zum Thema Buchrestauration, denn Brooklyn beschreibt ihre Arbeitsschritte wie immer ganz genau. Zudem ist dieser Band sehr emotionsgeladen, da die Protagonisten viel über Beziehungen und Familie sinniert. Die Haupthandlung ist verwoben mit ein paar unterhaltsamen und ebenfalls mysteriösen Nebenhandlungen, die es einem etwas schwerer machen, zu erraten, wer nun der Mörder ist.
