Of Books and Bagpipes: A Scottish Bookshop Mystery

We rated this book:


In the second in her Scottish Bookshop Mysteries, Of Books and Bagpipes, Paige Shelton once more renders the wonderful bookshop The Cracked Spine and the city of Edinburgh in lovely, warm detail. Kansas-native Delaney Nichols is still working at The Cracked Spine and is being entrusted with more of the secrets of her employer, Edwin MacAlister. His collection of rare manuscripts and historical artifacts is the stuff of legend, and she has been given the task of cataloging his finds and helping him track down others.

When she is sent to collect a rare comic book from a William Wallace re-enactor but instead stumbles upon his dead body, she is compelled to find out exactly what happened. Things really get complicated when she discovers that there is more to the story than just a book deal gone horribly wrong. Edwin’s connections to the dead man and the subsequent appearances of people from his past have Delaney and the rest of the bookstore staff guessing.

Readers will not be disappointed with Shelton’s second installment in the series and will most definitely be waiting impatiently for more of her plucky heroine’s adventures. A cozy used bookstore, temperamental Scottish weather, and likable characters – what’s not to love? Put on the kettle and settle in for the afternoon!
