I gave up half way through. The story was getting nowhere fast, too many characters being introduced for no apparent reason, and just too wordy. The author apparently writes lots of short stories, and frankly should stick to them. Unreadable!

The new American owners of a bookshop in a small Scottish tourist town have to find the killer of a woman nobody liked before they can get back to business running their store and opening a tea shop next door? Realistic? No. Fun and cozy? Yes.

Loved the setting and descriptions of small town Scottish Highland life.

An unreadable book. Cloyingly overwritten and blah-blah-blah wordy, especially in the dialog department.
