Delaney Nichols is on the literary adventure of a life time 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. 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?

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Move over Claire Fraser; American bibliophile Delaney Nichols is about to take Scotland-and legions of cozy mystery readers-by storm! As warm and inviting as a cup of tea and a serving of fresh-from-the-oven shortbread. Readers will fall in love with The Cracked Spine.
" --Ellery Adams, New York Times bestselling author of the Books By The Bay Mysteries

"Shelton pens a perfectly twisty-turny puzzler of a mystery in The Cracked Spine. With the engagingly bookish, amateur sleuth Delaney Nichols leading the way around the richly detailed city of Edinburgh, the reader is fully immersed in her world as she tries to expose the lies and deceptions that hide the brutal truth behind a murder. Full of wit and whimsy, with a clever plot and delightful characters, this mystery is a fantastic read!" --Jenn McKinlay, New York Times bestselling author of the Cupcake Mysteries

"A great read for book lovers, mystery seekers, and anyone who enjoys a determined new heroine. Sure to be a winning series." --Erika Chase, nationally bestselling author of Read and Buried

"Kilts, killers, and a keen sleuth ... oh my! Ms. Shelton has crafted a foolproof plot, endearing characters, and prose that immediately transports readers to enchanting Edinburgh ... and leaves them eager for a return trip. Readers will be delighted with this new series." --Lucy Arlington, New York Times bestselling author of the Novel Idea Mysteries

"With a wee bit of the brogue, Paige Shelton weaves a Scottish tale of mystery and intrigue filled with a quirky cast of characters, including the clever Delaney Nichols, an American fish-out-of-water who believes in the magic of books. You will want to make repeat visits to The Cracked Spine." --Daryl Wood Gerber, nationally bestselling author of The Cookbook Nook Mysteries
