Pages of Sin by Kate Carlisle is the first short story in the “Bibliophile” mystery series. Publisher: Obsidian, January 2012

After Wanda Frawley’s tragic suicide, rare book expert Brooklyn receives a box of Wanda’s old books—including a copy of Pride and Prejudice that contains a very interesting letter addressed to the deceased’s spouse. In it, Wanda’s sister professes her love for Wanda’s husband…and soon, other pieces of correspondence are discovered between the covers, hinting at sordid secrets—and, perhaps, murder.

This was a very enjoyable tale of well-hidden secrets that can potentially destroy a grieving family. The mystery was good and kept me turning the pages as I wanted to know who was doing what to whom and the surprising conclusion put a nice spin on this drama. This was a great interlude between the Bibliophile series.
