San Francisco bookbinder Brooklyn Wainwright stumbles
through the looking glass in a tale of murder, rare books,
and a quest for the perfect pie…

edge, rumors abound that the charming Courtyard shops across
the street may be replaced by high-rise apartments. Their
trendy neighborhood will be ruined unless Brooklyn and her
fiancé, Derek Stone, can persuade the shopkeepers not to sell.
But with a rare edition of Alice's Adventures in
Wonderland causing bad blood at the Brothers Bookshop
and a string of petty vandalism making everyone nervous,
Brooklyn and Derek feel like they're attempting six

and the local cobbler lies dead beside him. An accident . .

As the Brits descend, Brooklyn learns they're not so stuffy
after all. Derek's dad is won over with chocolate cream pie,
and his psychic mum would kill to help Brooklyn solve
