Set in the weeks before the annual Inversgail Literature Festival in Scotland, Plaid and Plagiarism begins on a morning shortly after the four women take possession of their bookshop in the Highlands. Unfortunately, the move to Inversgail hasn't gone as smoothly as they'd planned.First, Janet Marsh is told she'll have to wait before moving into her new home. Then she finds out the house has been vandalized. Again. The chief suspect? Una Graham, an advice columnist for the local paper--who's trying to make a name for herself as an investigative reporter. When Janet and her business partners go looking for clues at the house, they find a body--it's Una, in the garden shed, with a sickle in her neck. Janet never did like that garden shed.Who wanted Una dead? After discovering a cache of nasty letters, Janet and her friends are beginning to wonder who didn't, including Janet's ex-husband. Surrounded by a cast of characters with whom readers will fall in love, the new owners of Yon Bonnie Books set out to solve Una's murder so they can get back to business.A delightful and deadly new novel about recognizing one's strengths and weakness--while also trying to open a new book shop--Plaid and Plagiarism is the start of an entertaining new Scottish mystery series.

I gave up half way through. The story was getting nowhere fast, too many characters being introduced for no apparent reason, and just too wordy. The author apparently writes lots of short stories, and frankly should stick to them. Unreadable!

The new American owners of a bookshop in a small Scottish tourist town have to find the killer of a woman nobody liked before they can get back to business running their store and opening a tea shop next door? Realistic? No. Fun and cozy? Yes.

Loved the setting and descriptions of small town Scottish Highland life.

An unreadable book. Cloyingly overwritten and blah-blah-blah wordy, especially in the dialog department.

Och!
