Waiting on Wednesday #77 - Ripped from the Pages by Kate Carlisle

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating. 

Expected publication: June 2, 2015

This week the title I am waiting on belongs to a series I've just begun reading. It's #9 in the Bibliophile series featuring book restoration expert, Brooklyn Wainwright.

Synopsis from 

When book-restoration expert Brooklyn Wainwright temporarily relocates to her parents’ place in Northern California, she finds that wooden barrels aren’t the only things buried in the wine caves of Sonoma….

Excited to explore the secrets of wine country, Brooklyn attends an excavation of the caves hidden deep under her parents’ commune—and the findings are explosive. A room is unearthed, and it contains a treasure trove of artwork, rare books, a chest of jewelry…and a perfectly mummified body.

A closer examination of the murdered man’s possessions reveals a valuable first edition of Jules Verne’s A Journey to the Center of the Earth. Hidden in the book is a secret map that unveils an even greater hoard of treasures brought to California by French winemakers fleeing the Nazi invasion with the commune leader’s grandfather, Anton, among them.

As reporters and art appraisers flock to Sonoma to see the precious bounty, questions begin to rise—did Anton hide these items to protect them, or did he steal them for himself? Who is the mysterious man left for dead inside the cave? But not all crime is buried in the past. When a new presence threatens the town’s peace, Brooklyn decides to do a little excavating of her own and solve the mystery of the treasure before anyone else is written off.

Why am I waiting on it? 
Well, books. It's a book about someone who loves books solving mystery and mayhem that includes among other things a first edition book. I'm hoping because it is book 9 in the series that it means that the rest of the series is worth reading as well. After all, if people weren't liking and buying this series, there would be no ninth book. So, yeah, books. =0) Also curious about the alternative lifestyle her parents have living in a commune. 

So, what book are you waiting on this week? Share it or a link in the comments so we can check it out. And Happy Reading!
