From the Queen (Bibliomysteries) - Carolyn Hart

What I like about the Bibliomysteries that I've read so far is that they are all about books and that the authors' love for books is obvious. The mystery aspect has not been that strong, unfortunately.


When a signed first edition of an Agatha Christie book is discovered in the Dead on Demand book store (with which I was unfamiliar since this is the first book I've read by this author) it's not long before the book disappears. And it's worth a small fortune.


The story was what I'd call a cosy mystery with the bibliophile searching for the thief. Due to the fact the story is so short, but there's a whole list of suspects to go through it felt rushed and I couldn't really connect to the story. I'd rather see that it focused a bit more, so that an interview perhaps lasted a little longer.


The writing was nice enough, but the mystery was not enough of a mystery for me to get me really engaged in the story. Therefore only 2 stars.


Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
