The Cracked Spine: A Scottish Bookshop Mystery
The Cracked Spine by Paige Shelton is an absolute must read for all book lovers. A young woman is soon dismissed from her current position due to a lack of funds. She is now waiting for a job that will prove to be one great adventure. Little does she know that one ad will give her a job that leads to an adventure of a lifetime. A job that is located out of the States and into Scotland. A bookshop to be more precise. Once in Scotland, Delaney meets a wonderful cab driver who introduces her to new people. People who soon become a family to her. However, a mysterious job brings out a stolen object and soon murder. Delaney finds herself buried deep into a tragedy that she needs to solve or die trying.
Paige Shelton’s most talked about novel, The Cracked Spine is everything that I thought it would be. Adventure, suspense, romance, and murder…all in one brilliantly well-written book. Every page brings readers closer to the who, what, and why of the cases at hand. Can both the robbery and murder by tied and if so how?< em>The Cracked Spine allows readers to travel far across the world to one of the world’s most fascinating places of all, Scotland. So much history and intrigue lies, within this beautiful country. Readers can tell that a novel this stunning took a lot of research, dedication and love. Paige Shelton’s writing is addictive. Her characters are fascinating and the scenes come, to life.
Overall, I highly recommend this new mystery to readers who would love to travel without ever having to leave their home.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
