Homicide in Hardcover - Kate Carlisle I like a good mystery, but this one kept reminding me of The Dancing Floor by Barbara Michaels. Not the plot so much as the characters. I just couldn't get it out of my head. Brooklyn Wainwright's mentor is murdered and she's trying to find the killer with help sometimes by Derek Stone, an insurance investigator. I figured out the killer but not until about 4/5 the way through the book which is good for me. I've read so many mysteries in my life that I usually can figure it out.
