The Cracked Spine - Paige Shelton

Scottish Bookshop Mystery #1:  The Cracked Spine by Paige Shelton


A cozy mystery set in Edinburgh.  This novel starts of rather slowly, followed by somewhat erratic pacing throughout.  I also found the main character's (Delaney) sudden desire to investigate the murder of someone she has never met, in a foreign city she knows nothing about, rather illogical.  It seemed to be out of character.  Some other aspects of this novel were also a bit silly or not particularly believable, in my opinion. On the other hand, there is a bookshop, a mysterious room and a Shakespear First Folio.  A cute story to pass the time on a rainy evening.
