General Note: Includes recipes.
Summary, etc.: Newlyweds Brooklyn and Derek are enjoying the final days of their honeymoon in Paris. As they're browsing the book stalls along the Seine, Brooklyn finds the perfect gift for Derek, a first edition James Bond novel, The Spy Who Loved Me. When they bump into Ned, an old friend from Derek's spy days, Brooklyn shows him her latest treasure. Once they're back home in San Francisco, they visit a spy shop Ned mentioned. The owner begs them to let him display the book Brooklyn found in Paris as part of the shop's first anniversary celebration. Before they agree, Derek makes sure the security is up to snuff--turns out, the unassuming book is worth a great deal more than sentimental value. Soon after, Derek is dismayed when he receives a mysterious letter from Paris announcing Ned's death. Then late one night, someone is killed inside the spy shop. Are the murders connected to Brooklyn's rare, pricey book? Is there something even more sinister afoot? Brooklyn and the spy who loves her will have to delve into the darkest parts of Derek's past to unmask an enemy who's been waiting for the chance to destroy everything they hold dear.

    Book-restoration expert Brooklyn and former spy Derek, honeymooning in Paris, are browsing the book stalls on the Seine when Brooklyn buys Derek a first edition of Ian Fleming's The Spy Who Loved Me. Later, they run into Derek's former colleague Ned at the market and show him their find. When the couple return to San Francisco, Brooklyn learns that the book is even more valuable than she thought and agrees to let it be displayed in a special exhibit at a spy museum run by Ned's friend Owen. After Derek receives a letter about Ned's death in Paris, along with a cryptic note that there might be a clue in the book, the couple attempt to retrieve the novel, only to discover that, in the course of an attempted theft at the museum, there has been another murder. Details about book restoration and spy gadgets add a layer of intrigue to this fascinating bibliomystery. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
