  • Hide and Seek

    Delaney Nichols is one of four people invited to participate in a scavenger hunt that a local eccentric millionaire is hosting. With clues spread across Edinburgh, Delaney and Birk team up together, while the other two participants choose to go it alone. As they follow the clues, the host disappears from her home and a murderer and thief unleashes horror on the city. Now Delaney is questioning more than just the clues and wondering if there were other clues she was given that could help save Shelagh and solve both mysteries at once. I love this American living in Scotland protagonist. The book quotes are always tied into the story line and the whodunit gives you plenty of red herrings to make your case for several suspects to be guilty before you narrow it down along with Delaney. This is a series I have enjoyed for awhile now and look forward to many more in the series.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A winner!

    Scotland, law-enforcement, murder, murder-investigation, abduction, family-dynamics, friendship, cosy-mystery***** The publisher's blurb gives a good recap of the initial part of the story. The mystery is about the murder investigations which follow along the steps of the treasure hunt. It's a nice cosy with engaging characters, plot twists, red herrings, and SCOTLAND in winter. Well worth the read! This is only the second book I've read in the series, but that didn't detract at all. I requested and received a free ebook copy from St. Martin's Press/Minotaur Books via NetGalley. Thank you!

  • An intriguing cozy mystery!

    Deadly Editions by Paige Shelton is the 6th novel in A Scottish Bookshop Mystery series. It can be read as a standalone for those new to the series. We return to Edinburgh, Scotland on a snowy day as Paige begins her day at The Cracked Spine. Delaney is surprised when she receives a missive from wealthy Shelagh O’Connor inviting her to a pub that afternoon. Delaney along with three others are invited to participate in a treasure hunt. They must decipher the clues to find a valuable copy of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. The winner will receive Shelagh’s entire book collection and each participant also receives a cash bonus. Delaney cannot pass up this opportunity. Things take a dark turn when robberies begin happening by someone who dresses as Shelagh did in the 1970s and then Shelagh is kidnapped. It is a pleasure to catch up with Delaney, Tom, Rosie, Edwin, Aggie, Elias, and Hamlet. The characters are well-developed and friendly. We meet some new people that are involved in the treasure hunt. Shelagh is a unique character with a beautiful home and a gorgeous library (I wanted to win it). The treasure hunt was interesting. They visit various local pubs searching for unique clues. The author provided vivid descriptions that brought them alive for me as well as Edinburgh. It was great learning about Edinburgh and Robert Louis Stevenson. There are interesting facts about The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. The mystery was thought out. I like how everything tied together in this intricate whodunit. Delaney’s bookish voices added another level to the story. While I found the mystery complex, the solution was not. I kept hoping there would be a twist to surprise me. I also found the pacing to be a little slow at times. I liked the cozy moments with Tom and Delaney as well as her time spent with co-workers and their friends (and temporary houseguests) Aggie and Elias. I just loved Delaney’s attic library. It sounds like a cozy and special place. Deadly Editions is an intriguing cozy mystery with a tricky treasure hunt, clever clues, a large library, a valuable volume, and popular pubs.
