THISTLES AND THIEVES (Book 3) by MOLLY MACRAE

Thistles and Thieves (Highland Bookshop Mystery #3)

The Highland Bookshop Mystery Series Book 3

Back to Scotland at Yon Bonnie Books with Janet and friends.

Janet is out for a bike ride by Inversgail when she sees tracks and finds Dr. Murray and his bike down a very steep slope. Calling the Police Scotland emergency number, she is struck by what look like tire tracks. If this was an accident why in the world didn’t they stop? And if it wasn’t an accident who in the world would want to kill a much loved and already retired doctor?

In the next few days, Janet finds a box of vintage first editions on her bookstore doorstep. The note tells her to look after them. But she and her team aren’t sure what that even means. There are mysterious writings in the books and they all agree that they must have belonged to the doctor. And off they go to find Gerald, the brother.

First calling the doctor’s home they get his sister. And boy is she angry and from the looks of things the house has been robbed. Moving on to the reclusive Gerald, they instead find a dead body killed with a dagger. Now both brothers are dead and things are starting to look sketchy.

The police are investigating the deaths for connections but are also looking askance at Janet and her team. They just want to find out how the books got to the shop and why.

And so the mystery begins. But will Janet and her team end up in jail?

The third book in the series is really good. The characters are so real and the descriptions of the area make you feel like you are right there in bonny Scotland!

Very Well Done!!’
