Lost Books and Old Bones by Paige Shelton

Lost Books and Old Bones (Scottish Bookshop Mystery, #3)

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.

This is such a delightful series! This is the third I believe in the series with the lovely Delaney from Kansas. Working in The Cracked Spine bookshop selling rare and old books with a secret room with even more hidden treasure! It’s a book lover’s dream!

When a young lady she had met the night before is found murdered outside of the bookshop, Delaney’s curious mind simply has to be involved!

This Cozy Mystery Series is full of history, intrigue and suspense and really lovely characters! The Scottish Bookshop Series is definitely in my top 5!

  1. I was just looking for a cozy mystery to pop into for my nightly read, Just finished Andy Andrews “The Heart Mender” It was a hard read for me in a couple of places due to the link to WWII but I believe it was based on a true story with a very sweet ending. Need something much lighter. Andy Andrews always writes about values with a story around them.

      1. I’m binge reading “The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend” By Katrina Bival. I’ve had it on my headboard over a year and another book claimed priority. Now I wish it hadn’t. I read all day yesterday and getting nothing done again today. It’s been a long time since I read like that. I usually do one chapter a night and rarely read during the day. Maybe I’m broken. 🙂

  2. You know? I just read the blog title and I knew instantly that I had to follow you. I was still a bit skeptical. So, I read your blogs. They are pretty interesting. Keep up the good work and do not stop writing. 🙂
