In national bestselling author Hannah Reed’s latest Scottish Highlands mystery, aspiring romance novelist Eden Elliott discovers the landscape isn’t the only thing that’s dramatic when a local woman is done in...
It’s early September in Glenkillen, Scotland, when American expat (and budding romance novelist) Eden Elliott is recruited by the local inspector to act as a special constable. Fortunately it’s in name only, since not much happens in Glenkillen.
For now Eden has her hands full with other things: preparing for the sheepdog trial on the MacBride farm—a fundraiser for the local hospice—and helping her friend Vicki with her first yarn club skein-of-the-month deliveries. Everything seems to be coming together—until the head of the welcoming committee is found strangled to death with a club member’s yarn.
Now Eden feels compelled to honor her commitment as constable and herd together the clues, figure out which ones are dogs, and which ones will lead to a ruthless killer . . .
My Thoughts: Loved it! It’s easily a 5 star book!
Eden Elliot, is an American living in the Scottish Highlands for 6 months. She is supposed to be writing a series of romance books, but she keeps getting wrapped up in these local murders. She is writing, one book down and another to finish before she returns home. Now Eden has even been appointed special constable (volunteer cop). The locals think she is blunt and says what on her mind without tact. Sometimes their phrases along with her responses are pretty funny. Eden is building some great relationships, like her new best friend Vicki, the sexy Leith, and grouchy, quiet Inspector Jamieson. Who doesn’t like a story with tall Highland men, speaking with that awesome accent and don’t forget the kilts? Eden really should listen to her friend Ami and check out those kilts a little closer.
I like the characters that Eden comes across. I also like the way the regular supporting characters are growing and their reactions are completely believable. I can picture the area, and her hang outs with such clarity. Ms. Reed has painted a magnificent picture for us. This is a wonderful cozy mystery series, I am definitely recommending it to my friends.
I look forward to the next installment of Scottish Highland Mysteries.
