it was amazing

Of Books And Bagpipes is the second book in the A Scottish Bookshop Mystery series.

I really love this series that is set in Edinburgh, Scotland. The reader is able to virtually travel about the city of Edinburgh and it’s old castles. Also, the reader will learn more about the life of William Wallace as the story centers around William Wallace reenactors.

Delaney Nichols has been asked by her employer, Edwin MacAlister to meet someone at Doune Castle, only informed as to what the man will be wearing, and get from him a rare old comic book. When Delaney arrives at the appointed spot she finds the body of the man she was to meet and near the body, she finds the comic book she was to obtain near the body and quickly hides in her coat.

Edwin MacAlister continues to keep his personal life and a good deal of his business life to himself, but Delaney is able to learn that the history of the comic book reaches back to MacAlister’s college days. In fact, the dead man, Billy Armstrong, is the son of one of the three college student’s that MacAlister was close with. She also learns that another student had died when he and the other were out sailing and more recently two of the four had died in a fire on another boat. Now with the help of her friend, Tom Fletcher and Elias, her landlord and taxi driver to unravel everything and to find the killer.
This series has a wonderful cast of interesting and believable characters. Ms. Shelton once again skillfully weaves interesting descriptions of Edinburgh and its castles without taking away from the story. I also found particularly interesting the history of William Wallace.

Will definitely be watching for the next book in this wonderful series.
