    I love the title! By the way, have you seen the documentary on Netflix called “The Booksellers?” I watched it a couple of weeks ago and thought of you.

    I agree that there is room to tighten your hook but still maintain all that juicy information. Keep in mind that I am a new writer, but here’s one small adjustment you might consider (and I do mean small):

    “Newly single mom and former rare book dealer Kate Callaway is reluctantly persuaded to leave her minivan and high school classroom behind to help the FBI Art Crimes Unit solve a rare book heist. She never imagined becoming their number one suspect in the crime.”

    I am so happy for you to be finally writing your book. Maybe one day you will get to leave your own high school classroom behind and assume the mantle of professional writer! I, for one, would buy this book.
