Review of Murder in the Highlands

Hello all! Super excited to bring you a book review of Murder in the Highlands!

Book blurb:

Book cover

Sophie and Hector are heading to the Highlands.

For Sophie it’s a trip home and for Hector it’s time to meet Sophie’s parents… Though their trip has village tongues wagging about a stop at Scotland’s notorious elopement spot, Greta Green.

No matter what, it’ll make a nice break from the murder and mayhem that has been plaguing their beautiful Cotswolds village. But Sophie and Hector are barely on the road before they’re being hassled by reckless drivers and at their first rest stop a body is discovered.

Then comes a series of ‘accidents’ that leave poor Hector a little worse for wear. Is someone after Hector? Who could even know he was in the Highlands?

Accidents or not, can they find some way to keep Hector safe?

My review:

I would like to start by saying that I love this cover! So pretty! And I would also like to say that this is the first book of the series that I have read, but I really enjoyed it and I don’t think it affected my reading at all.

This is definitely a cozy read that can be finished in one sitting!

The murder does happen very early in in the book which I love that it’s throughout the whole book. I also love that it starts with her family kind of starting a little gossip circle about her and Hector.

I really enjoyed the dynamic between the two of them, and really enjoyed seeing their personalities come out throughout the book and also seeing their relationship grow.

I look forward to reading more of this series and definitely recommend it for my cozy mystery readers!
