Publisher's Summary

It's early September in Glenkillen, Scotland, when American expat (and budding romance novelist) Eden Elliott is recruited by the local inspector to act as a special constable. Fortunately it's in name only, since not much happens in Glenkillen. For now Eden has her hands full with other things: preparing for the sheepdog trial on the MacBride farm, a fundraiser for the local hospice, and helping her friend Vicki with her first yarn club skein-of-the-month deliveries. 

Everything seems to be coming together until the head of the welcoming committee is found strangled to death with a club member's yarn. Now Eden feels compelled to honor her commitment as constable and herd together the clues, figure out which ones are dogs, and which ones will lead to a ruthless killer...

Knitting, Sheep Shearing, and Murder in Scotland

The second in the Scottish Highlands series is a fun and interesting listen, finding visitor, Eden Elliott just recently recruited as a special constable by the local law enforcement. Thinking it was in name only, Eden continues her book writing at her table at the back of the Kilt & Thistle (the local pub) and helping by volunteering with the local hospice fundraiser. When the prickly Isla Lindsey falls out of a parked van (dead) while Eden is helping to clean up following the fun raiser, she’s enlisted FOR REAL to help find the killer. Tied around Isla’s neck is the same poppy red yarn that her friend, Vicki sent out in her Poppy Sox Knitting Kit. Vicki had hand-dyed it from the local wool. I love the narration, the quirky, funny sayings of the Scottish people, and I’m intrigued by the budding romance between Eden and the single father, Leith Cameron. Leith, who had never married, but chose to stand by his daughter, raise her and put her first in his life . . . wow! I never figured out who the murdered was, although with the likes of Isla the list of possibilities was endless. I’m definitely going on to the next in the series!

Good, but not as good as the first.

The main character appears to have lost a few IQ points and a significant amount of self control since the first book. It was still an entertaining read, but I had to roll my eyes quite a few times.

I’m loving this series

Hannah Reed has crafted the second book in this series with all the fun and enjoyable characters of the first one. Angela Dawe, as always brings a wonderful performance bringing life to it all. I’m thoroughly enjoying this series and hope there are more to come.

Good second book in the series.

As much as I enjoyed the further development of the characters and the lovely narration, I found the premise of Eden, a writer from Chicago, suddenly being promoted to special constable. That seemed a bit too far fetched for me. Aside from that, I did enjoy the story.

Second audible book of this most interesting series has lived up to my expectations. Eden Elliott is a likeable character as are the entire group of Glen Killeen folks. I will be back!

Too many characters!

You know, it's funny that I can easily follow these mysteries when I read the paperbacks, but it's an entirely different experience via audio. I don't know if this particular book had just WAY more characters than the previous installment, but boy was this hard to follow! I just couldn't keep up with the dozens of talking heads. By the time Eden closed in on the case, more unfamiliar names kept popping up. While walking dogs around the shelter, I kept saying out loud, "Wait! Who's Andrea? Who's Sean? Who's Harry again?" Toward the end, I resigned myself to the fact that I wasn't going to be surprised by the big reveal.Needless to say, this was a frustrating read, but I soldiered through, despite the many times i had to hit the rewind button to catch myself up to speed. So if you love standard cozy mysteries with dozens of characters and lots of dialogue, this book is for you. As for me, I think it's time to step away from the cozies for a bit and find a book that won't make me crazy!

Good fun

Although the characters are rather ‘cartoon highlanders’ the story is well written and bowls along. The narrator does a reasonable job of a Scottish accent.
