Publisher's Summary

Janet Marsh's move into her house has been delayed due to vandalism. Then, when the women go to look for clues that might tell them who is guilty, they find a corpse (murder!) in Janet's garden shed.

Constable Hobbs answers their emergency call. He's calm and quietly pleased, as he's never had a murder case. Then the contents of a dozen or so garbage bags are discovered behind the bookshop. The letters inside are nasty. The more the women find out about Una, the more people they discover who detested her and aren't sad she's gone. If Janet and her bookshop crew are reading the clues right, they're about to expose the most sensational story the town of Inversgail has ever heard.

    "Excellent book in a great setting"

    Janet moves from Iowa to Inversgail, Scotland to buy a bookshop and open a tea shop along with her daughter, her best friend, and her daughter's friend. When she goes to move into the home she and her ex-husband bought 30 years earlier, she finds the kitchen full of rotting, stinking garbage. Her estate agent suspects Una, the local popular agony columnist, of committing this vandalism, so when Una is found murdered in Janet's shed -- well, really, her rat of an ex-husband's shed -- the police arrest the agent, though they soon let her go.

    The four women get busy learning the ins and outs of running their new bookshop and preparing a tea shop and bed and breakfast, but the murder and vandalism keep getting in the way, forcing the women to use their individual skills to find a solution.

    I usually like something about all narrators, but I was especially blown away by Elaine Claxton's narration. Most British readers have difficulty with American accents, but she handles those deftly and also does a terrific Scottish accent as well. I really was greatly impressed by this narrator.

    This book is really well written and highly enjoyable. I look forward to reading what I hope will be many more books in this series.

    "Really Enjoyed this book"
    Where does Plaid and Plagiarism rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would "rank" it by saying that this is a book I will most definitely listen to more than once.


    What other book might you compare Plaid and Plagiarism to and why?

    I have listened to every book by this author. I wouldn't be able to choose one favorite but as an engaging story that is well written and well narrated, this book fits right in.


    What about Elaine Claxton’s performance did you like?

    The narrator goes seamlessly from Scottish to Illinois accent. I question her pronunciation of a few words but I could be wrong. This was an excellent narration.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Crime solved over tea and scones.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this book as well as the author's last series, "Haunted Yarn Shop Mysteries" as a great introduction to Cozy Mysteries.

    "Great New series...Not to be missed!"
    Would you listen to Plaid and Plagiarism again? Why?

    Yes, I would. It was a great story and was narrated well by Elaine Claxton.


    What other book might you compare Plaid and Plagiarism to, and why?

    I don't think that I can compare Plaid and Plagiarism with any other book. For me it stands well on it's own.


    Have you listened to any of Elaine Claxton’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No, so I have nothing to compare it with.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Moving location can be deadly!


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the story. It was well written and plotted, with plenty of twists and turns keeping you guessing until the end.
