Series: Scottish Bookshop Mystery book
Genre: cozy mystery
Rating: 3.5 stars
In the second book in the Scottish Bookshop mysteries series Of Books and Bagpipes by Paige Shelton Delaney Nichols is settling into life in Edinburgh. It feels more like home than her home in the States. She loves her job as a bookseller at the Crack Spine, her boss Edwin McAlister and the other two members of the staff are becoming dear friends.
But it's when she and Edwin go to a meeting about a first edition of a Scottish comic that they stumble on to another murder victim. Delaney finds herself either becoming the suspect again or this time the killer next victim. But is a first edition Scottish comic worth killing over?
It was nice to be back in Edinburgh and at the Cracked spine with the same lovable cast of characters. As the second book in the series the mystery moved faster than the previous book, because the character building had already happened in the first book. With this book Edinburgh felt so much more real than it did in the first book. As with the first book I enjoyed this one as well. I look forward to the next one. I would recommend this one to anyone who loves cozy mysteries. Books set in Scotland and well as bookshops.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher through netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine alone.
