A hop, a skip and a jump,

she doesn't land herself in the pond
but she still gets wet.

The box of trade books arrived today - many thanks for knocking off so many of my wishlist books at once! This one's from a cozy-mystery series set in a bookshop - and I have to admit that "The Cracked Spine" is an excellent (if wince-inducing) name for a secondhand book store...

Later: Rather fun, and better-written than many of these series, with a great fondness for the Scottish setting and people. We get to meet a number of characters as protagonist Delaney does, from her new boss at the bookstore to the charismatic bartender across the way. (Cozies do generally feature some kind of love-interest, and at least this one isn't a cop {wry grin}.) Oh, and there's Hamlet - yes, that's his name - a teenager who delights in performing in the local theater company, though at present he's playing Macduff.

The plot itself was, for me, a bit of a letdown, involving a rare-manuscript Macguffin and an unlikely assortment of criminals, but I did enjoy the setting and the character interactions. The series is up to seven books now, so I may dip in to see what's in store for Delaney and her new friends.
