Brooklyn and her hunky new husband, Derek, are excited to be guests at Dharma’s first annual book festival. The entire town is involved, and Brooklyn’s mom, Rebecca, is taking charge. In addition to all of her other event-related duties, she’s got Brooklyn doing rare-book appraisals and is also staging Little Women, a musical to delight the festival-goers. If that wasn’t enough, she and Meg - Derek’s mom - will have a booth where they read palms and tarot cards.
Brooklyn couldn’t be more proud of her mom’s do-it-all attitude, so when a greedy local businessman who seems intent on destroying Dharma starts harassing Rebecca, Brooklyn is ready to take him down. Rebecca is able to hold her own with the nasty jerk until one of her fellow festival committee members is brutally murdered and the money for the festival seems to have vanished into thin air.
Things get even more personal when one of Brooklyn’s nearest and dearest is nearly run down in cold blood. Brooklyn and Derek go into attack mode, and the pressure is on to catch a spineless killer before they find themselves skipping the festival for a funeral.

It has long been a dream of Brooklyn’s to have a book festival in her hometown of Dharma, and her mother, Rebecca, has worked for the last two years to make that happen. The festival is within a few days of beginning when Brooklyn and Drake arrive from San Francisco where they now live. Brooklyn is bubbling with excitement and can hardly wait for it to begin. Yet, when they head into town to pick her mother up from a planning committee meeting, they witness a large, burly man harassing and threatening her. While Rebecca deals with him and doesn’t let him cow her, Brooklyn and Derek worry that it could lead to more. When more harassment occurs and a dead body is found in the committee room, they go into high gear to protect Rebecca.
Their chief suspect is the nasty businessman, Jacob Banyan, who continues to harass Rebecca. But, as more clues are discovered, more attempts on Rebecca’s life are made, and yet another body is discovered, they have more suspects than they know what to do with.
Is embezzlement at the bottom of crimes, or is it the first edition of Little Woman that Brooklyn is restoring – or is it something else altogether? You’ll just have to read this delightful mystery, meet all of the suspects, and figure it out for yourself. Can there be more than one perpetrator?
In addition to the crimes to solve, we get a delightful visit with both Brooklyn’s and Derek’s delightful families. Brooklyn’s parents are deadheads from the sixties who followed Guru Bob to the Sonoma Valley and set about creating their own community, Dharma. They are all now very wealthy and well-respected members of the community – even though Rebecca still gets into karma, chakra’s, spirit cleansing, etc. You’ll love them. If you get the chance, be sure to read the series from the beginning so you can get to know and learn to appreciate all of the cast of characters.
If you are looking for a delightful read, this is the one for you. Happy solving!
Her mother AND mother in law, are both total whack a doos. I'm just glad they didn't stage a seance!!!! Ugh. And EVERYONE is gorgeous, or handsome or rich! And it IS a cult. It's pretend but if one person is running the show, and that is helping him stay wealthy, there you go. Also, I'm pretty sure that these people are too young to be DEAD HEADS.
BUT because one of my favorite books Rebecca, is up next? I'll wait this out.
"Of course, darling," said Derek.
"Hey Babe," said Gabriel. Completely inappropriate.
"I'm really concerned, Gracious," said Guru Bob. " Gotta go dust my very important and costly collection of stuff now!!!"
UGH!!!!! Gracious??? What the.....just odd. As was his page and a half appearance in the story line. People were being attacked or murdered in his little Garden of Eden, setting!!! And he just wasn't around much.
So I will wait for "Little Black Book". We'll see.
