A humble book shop finds itself in the midst of a murder plot in the first novel of bestselling author Paige Shelton’s glittering new series.
Delaney Nichols is on the literary adventure of a lifetime when she leaves the States for Edinburgh, Scotland, to take a job at The Cracked Spine. A legendary bookshop filled with special editions and rare manuscripts, it’s a house of biblio delights―one as eclectic as those who work there: the spirited and ever-curious Rosie, along with her tiny dog, Hector; a nineteen-year-old thespian named Hamlet (of course); and Edwin, the big boss, who Delaney likes but just can’t get a read on. Then there’s Tom, the bartender from across the street, whose gentle brogue pulls at Delaney’s heart strings―and who can rock a kilt like none other.
“Move over Claire Fraser; American bibliophile Delaney Nichols is about to take Scotland...by storm!”―Ellery Adams
But before she can settle into her new life, a precious artifact from the shop goes missing―and Delaney is terrified to find out that Edwin’s sister is brutally murdered. Never did Delaney think that her dream job would turn into a living nightmare. Can she, along with Tom and her coworkers, help close the book on this killer mystery…before it’s too late?
“This fun-filled read takes plenty of twists and turns on the way to the satisfying ending.”
