Is there a popular author that you used to read but over time found your self reading less and less often? For me John Grisham is one, in the beginning I had to read his latest as soon as it came out and then after a while, for whatever reason I didn’t. But someone told me to give his latest book, Camino Island, a try because it was about books and I am glad I did.
Camino Island is a different book for John Grisham- it focused not on lawyers but on the heist of original F Scott Fitzgerald manuscripts from the Yale library. The story revolves around the crime and the subsequent search to locate the manuscripts and get them back. Mercer is a down on her luck author that is approached to help infiltrate the world of bookstores and rare books in a small Florida town. Bruce Cable owns a successful independent bookstore that hosts author events and dabbles in rare books in the Florida town. But is Bruce connected to the Fitzgerald manuscript? And will Mercer be able to get close enough to find out? It was an interesting because it focused on the world of bookstores, authors, & rare books. It wasn’t my favorite by him but it was an enjoyable read.
