It’s January, and the Star City Film Festival has taken the Utah ski resort town by storm. Movie stars are everywhere, carving fresh powder on the slopes and crossing the thresholds of Bygone Alley’s charming boutique shops—including The Rescued Word, where Clare Henry and her grandfather restore old typewriters and beloved books. When cinema’s hottest superhero, Matt Bane, enters their store to buy some personalized notecards, it’s hard not to be starstruck.
But when Clare sees the police leading Matt out of The Fountain hotel in handcuffs only a few hours later, she can’t believe her eyes. The affable actor is accused of killing his sister, but Clare’s convinced he’s wrong for that role. Now it’s open call for suspects as Clare tries to reel in the killer before another victim fades to black…
5 out of 5 stars
Bookman Dead Style is the second book in the Dangerous Type Mystery series but I did not feel like I had missed out on any information by not reading the first book. This book had a wonderfully diverse cast of characters who all varied in age and personality type. I really learned a lot about repairing books and the different kinds of typewriters while reading this book. It was really interesting. The mystery and suspense of finding out who was behind the murder kept me interested and the pages turning. As soon as I thought I might have figured out who the killer was, I started to suspect someone else. I loved this book and will definitely go back and read the first book in this series as well as others by this author.
