Heather and Homicide : The Highland Bookshop Mystery Series: Book 4 by Molly MacRae

Heather Kilbride says she's true crime writer and she's in town to gather facts to write her book.  She's researching a recent murder but she asks questions about a lawyer in town and he has nothing to do with that murder...

Pegasus Books and Edelweiss let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published December 1st.

Janet has gone for a walk when she sees what looks like a body right where she found the other one.  She's shocked and scared but goes down to see if there's any life left.  That's when she finds it is a dummy.  Heather put it there.

This story has a lot of questions being asked by the bookstore owner and her friends.  There don't seem to be any answers.  Then Heather turns up really dead and the person taking over the case is not a friend of Janet's.  He thinks they are meddling old ladies.

This was interesting read.  Lots of misdirection and some lies appear to be the norm.  But the women are the ones that finally narrow it down to the killer.

It's a good cosy read.

Have to try a cozy - wonder what the best one to start out with would be. Cheers from Carole's Chatter

Just make sure you start with the first of a series or you'll get confused. I enjoy all of them.
