(The first book in the Scottish bookshop mystery series)

This is a "Scottish Bookshop Mystery". The few Scottish words are easy to translate, the characters interesting and likable. I sincerely hope that author Paige Shelton will have another story to tell about Delaney Nichols (from Kansas in America) and her employment at bookshop, The Cracked Spine.

A cozy mystery set in Edinburgh, Scotland. A nice quick read for those who like Aunt Dimity series.

I wish I could give this cozy mystery praise, but it could have been so much better. The main character seems unaware of how to conduct herself around new acquaintances. She often takes advantage of the kindness and hospitality of her new friends. The author mentions "driving on the wrong side of the road" and tells us that "closes" are alleys more times than I can count. I so love Edinburgh, but I hope to remember not to read the sequel.

This is the first book in a new series by this author and I think it is the better than her other 2 series.
