Wee Murder in My Shop has Peggy Winn discovering her
as-of-this-very-minute former fiancé Mason in bed with
her as-of-this-very-minute former best friend, Andrea. Peggy’s
real best friend Karaline recommends she just kill Mason and
be done with it. Humor between friends comes true after Peggy
returns from a business trip to find Mason dead in her Vermont
ScotShop. As Thirty-year-old Peggy loses one companion she
gains another – well, sort of. During her trip to Scotland,
Peggy has a supernatural experience. She brings someone home
with her, and he doesn’t need a ticket to fly. Peggy’s
employees and friends aren’t aware of her new companion
- not yet, anyway, but they do notice she’s mumbling
a lot. The murder mystery brings the dark-eyed Officer Harper
to Peggy’s shop - the very officer Peggy would love
to see in a kilt. Peggy and Officer Harper work together to
solve the murder but Peggy discovers Dirk, her Fourteenth
Century Scotsman is a Spector full of wisdom and deduction.
Wee Murder in My Shop is chocked full of humor and memorable
characters. Dirk’s fourteenth century character is charming.
I can’t wait to see his story unfold during the series.
Peggy is a hoot; everyone should have a bestie like her. The
tongue-in-cheek moments between Peggy (Peigi) and Dirk are
laugh-out-loud funny. Lucky for us, Stewart keeps the humor
on a roll throughout the storyline, even the last page leaves
you with a smile. I predict the Scotshop series will be an
addictive one. I’m not sure I can wait a whole year
for the next in series…
Stewart also writes the Biscuit McKee Mystery series.
