My Nails and My Book Review - Lost Books and Old Bones by Paige Shelton


Title: Lost Books and Old Bones
Series: Scottish Bookshop Mystery #3
Author: Paige Shelton

Goodreads Summary: 
A delightful new mystery featuring bookseller and amateur sleuth Delaney Nichols, set in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Delaney Nichols, originally of Kansas but settling happily into her new life as a bookseller in Edinburgh, works at The Cracked Spine in the heart of town. She’s recently befriended a few medical school students after they came into the shop to sell some antique medical tomes. But when one of the students’ friends is found murdered outside in the alley, Delaney takes it upon herself to help bring the murderer to justice.

During her investigation, Delaney finds some old scalpels in the bookshop’s warehouse—she finds out that they belonged to a long-dead doctor, whose story might be connected to the present-day murder. It’s all Delaney can do to race to solve this crime before time runs out and she ends up in danger herself.

My Review: **I voluntarily read this ARC**
This is probably a series best read in order. I didn't fully connect with the characters because I missed the initial character building. The setting was beautiful. It had a slightly slower pace than I am used to, but it really helped build the story. I really enjoyed the history that was tied in with the plot. I actually ended up reading up on it after I finished the book. The reveal was a shock and very well written.

My Manicure: I was inspired by the Scotland setting. I started out with Zoya Merida since I always associate green with Scotland. The skull was stamped with Bundle Monster 211 and Bam! White.
