In the second installment of the Glen & Tyler series, the guys find out what happens when you inherit a Scottish castle, tussle with international crime gangs and host formal balls. Yes, balls - with dancing and everything!
In typical Hardy Boys - er, Glen & Tyler fashion, there are secret passages, irascible old men, caves, missing treasure, fine liquor and kilts. Ok, the kilts thing is new - but believe me, you'll like 'em. Although there isn't much hockey this time around, there is shinty. There's also some romantic anniversary thing, but really, stay for the shinty.
For those readers unfamiliar with the ancient sport of shinty, think hockey played on a field, without protective gear and with a solid rugby sensibility. Or a riot with sticks and a score keeper.

I agree with other reviewers. The first book was really good, and this one is better. The story is engaging, and surprising, and wonderfully entertaining. But really, the narrator Brian Rollins is incredible. I have both the kindle versions and the audible ones and at times a funny situation made me laugh out loud (on the street, where people look at you as if you have a conversation with the voices in your head) because his narration captures it so brilliantly. Really highly recommended. The stories are all about love and friendship and good against evil. I listened to both stories twice in short succession, and the second time was better because I could pay attention to nuances instead of capturing the whole story.
Altogether, great listen. I hope there will me more from this narrator, and the third book will be produced as audiobook soon also.
I love the way that every one that deserves something good gets something good and that the bad guys get their comeuppance. Glen and Tyler are awesome characters and I would love to have friends like them.
I like the fact that they helped Mary and Effie when they had nowhere to turn.
Yes. The first Glen and Tyler book. It's just as good.
Hurry up with the next one!
I didn't think that the second book could be as fun and quirky as the first but JB Sanders hit another home run! Great character development, fun story, and a little bit of a travelog throw in!
I loved everything about the story and the performance. I fell in love with Glen and Tyler when I listened to the first book, Glen and Tyler's Honeymoon Adventure, and was excited to see number 2 in audio. Brian Rollins is as good a narrator as I have heard. His facility with accents is flawless and always consistent as the characters recur in the story. His pacing and timing are also great.
I love the twists and turns in a Glen and Tyler story. You know they will always come out on top but how they get there - oh, my. Sometimes I just shake my head.
All the Scottish characters were great. I am of Scottish ancestry and have spent time there and could close my eyes and believe I was in the Highlands.
No, too long for that. I had a couple of road trips for work and got through the book in over three days.
I am reading Glen and Tyler book 3 now on Kindle and will definitely also get it on audio as well. Sure hope that is in the works!
At least as terrific as the first book. Great example of a creative, witty, playful spirit !
The narrator did his part to create another masterpiece! I still wonder how he does all those different accents and dialects. Looking forward to the next book.
