    • Dollycas’s ThoughtsNothing puts a damper on a festival quicker that a murder especially when it is a long time champion of the Hamelin Highland Festival that is found dead in his hotel room. Peggy was just getting to know the man and finding his body was so traumatic. She starts her own investigation with her handsome ghost’s assistance. To add to the excitement the town in crawling with Secret Service. It appears the President wants drop in for a visit.This story has a slow build as we get [...]


    • Dirk the highland haunter is back in another fun installment of the Scotshop Mysteries!Author Fran Stewart has written another delightful story in her Scotshop para-cozy mystery series. As with her last book, I commend the author for her talent for keeping spirit Dirk’s old world Scottish speech right on target. A WEE HOMICIDE IN THE HOTEL, finds Hamelin, Vermont holding the annual Highland Festival. The town is up to its kilt hems in bagpipes, hammer throwing, caber tossing, and murder! Serie [...]


    • Out February 7th this Scotshop Mystery is a welcome distraction for these long winter nights. Shop owner Peggy and her Scottish Ghost Dirk find themselves wrapped up in another mystery during the Highland games in Hamelin. I found there is so much to take in and much going on in this cozy mystery. Between the games, the shop and the characters Peggy has barely time to catch her breath. Bagpipes, drummers, families and politicians all cram into town and the shop, conflict, excitement, theft, misc [...]


    • Dirk is the Ghostest with the Mostest! Loved this latest installmentI am finding myself understanding his Scottish quite well, ayuh! and was hoping to see if Harper was going to put a ring on it. mean there will be another bookyay!!


    • Book 3 is a great addition to this series and it does have a a very good mystery to solve. Equally important to me are the characters and setting. I love the Scot Shop, all the human characters who are not the bad guys, the Scottie dogs, and Dirk the Ghost. The Hamelin Highland Games provide an interesting backdrop and I enjoyed reading about them. Book 3 made me a happy reader!

    • Genre: cozy mysterySeries: ScotShop Mystery, 3Peggy and ghost Dirk return in a third book set in Hamelin. It is time for Hamelin's Highland Games Festival weekend. The ScotShop is very busy with the crowds of people in town for the Highland games. There is some shoplifting going on. A special guest is expected for the opening night of the festival. A group of FBI agents are in town to help. Big Willie Bowman has come to town with a little Scottie dog named Silla. Big Willie plans to participate [...]


    • I've read all three books in this series, in order (which I seldom do) and I like the way the characters and the relationships have progressed. Still a little undercurrent of romance between Peggy and Harper. Peggy and her ghost are more in sync now, and we learn a bit more about their family history.Hamelin's annual Highland Festival provides a colorful backdrop for the story, emphasizing its trademark Scottish theme. Although the murder is not discovered until halfway through the book, the fir [...]


    • Peggy has her Scottish store in beautiful Hamelin, a handsome policeman in her sights (but she can't pick up the signals that she's a person of interest to him), a best friend, and--oh, yes, the ghost of a 14th century Scotsman who is somehow linked to a shawl she's inherited. When it's time for the annual highland festival, the crowds in the store may provide cover for shoplifters, but Peggy befriends one of the competitors and his adorable Scottie, Silla. There are plot elements that fizzle ou [...]


    • This is the 4th in a series about Peggy and her Scotshop along with her 14th century ghost Dirk. The Scottish-themed games are going on and her shop is very busy. When a necklace is taken from her shop and a longtime campion of the games is murdered Peggy has to figure out what is happening. The ghost not gettig more up to date on modern customs is getting old though.


    • Another visit to Hamelin, Vermont. Scottish theme, this time at their Highland Festival. Love Dirk, the ghost and the Scottie dogs, in the book, a white and a black, officially, the white is called wheaten which can be very light. Remember the little magnets with one white and one black Scottie? Lots of tidbits of Scottish lore. Waiting for the next one!


    • I love this series about a woman who owns a Scottish store in Vermont. She inherits a ghost along with a shawl woven by his true love in the 1300's in Scotland. This book involves the town's Highlands games and the murder of a competitor.






    • There are some cozy series where I love the first, but the series loses its sparkle. Not so with Fran's ScotsShop series. I love Peggy, Dirk -the ghost and the whole gang. Can't wait for book four.



    • Book three shows a great improvement in the mystery aspect. All of these books have done well with the plotting and the characters. But the 'ghost' is still the problem. It has been matured in some areas but the constant questioning and demanding attention when it knows that will cause difficulties for those that see/hear/know of its existence is way over emphasized. Either get it together or get it out of the story is how I see it with so many ghosts in so many series. Reallt almost not worth t [...]



    • This book, the third in the series is by far the best of them to date. Fran has knocked it out of the park. Between the murder, the setting at the Games and the plethora of "persons of interest" it kept me in my lounger till I'd finished every last page. I can't wait for Peggy and Silla's next adventure.


    • I was hoping this book would be better than the last, but it's just as bad with all the POV changes. Skipped to the end.Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books1 star This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.2 stars This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.3 stars This book was ok, but I won't go [...]


    • Enjoyable edition to the series. The characters are growing and the interplay between the major entities is beginning to show romance, and tight friendships. The mystery was ok, though the clues could have been better. I will continue to read this series.


    • 2.5 starsI enjoy the Scottish flavor of this series, and Dirk is much more appealing to me now than in the first book (the second book is still in my TBR pile). Peggy is an nice enough protag0nist, as are the supporting characters, but the plot is where I find fault here. There is an assassination subplot that I think is a waste of pages here and does not relate to the main mystery at all. Silla, the victim's Scottish Terrier, is the book's saving grace. The bits of the story told from her persp [...]


    • Not as good as the first in this series. It was a real let down. The main character was really, really annoying, as were her fellow shop keepers. I think that I can stop reading this series now, this one definitely was not worth it. Which is a bummer, because I love these cozies with themes like this. Oh well. On to the next book. +relatively unique theme-characters were almost too dumb to be believed- unrealistic dialogue


    • A nice read for a winters evening. A bit slow to start out with But a great ending,.Peggy owns a Scotshop in Hamelin Vermont.Every year the town holds traditional Scottish games.This year it involves a murder and a theft of jewelry.Lots of great town characters.Mystery and some romance make a good story. I won this book from a giveaway.
