    The honeymoon is perfect but what comes next has them fighting for their lives. Alex is a bibliophile who is an expert on Samuel Pepyss the diarist. He isn't a hero with super power but in the past his love of literature has gotten him into adventures that could have gotten him killed. Both Sarah and Alex think this is one such adventure because Alex had a hint that there were more papers from the Pepyss diary hidden in Dartmouth. His friend Mattie, also an alumni of the class of '86, calls him in England to tell him that she has knowledge of the Pepyss paper. When they are in the area where the papers are supposed to be, Alex is beaten and tied up and is on the run from people who speak with British accents.

   UNCATOLOGUED is a fantastic book lovers' mystery because the actions of the characters ring true. The teamwork of the honeymooners seems precise and hooks the audience while serving as an indication that Sarah might have a bigger role in future works. Julie Kaewert is a fabulous writer who appeals to both the American and British amateur sleuth audience.
