Book Review:Scottish Country Escape by Julie Shackman 

Thank you to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for giving me the chance to review Scottish Country Escape by Julie Shackman


Determined to overcome a family tragedy, Elle Cassidy decides to reopen her late mother’s ailing newsagent as a stationery shop in the quiet Scottish town of Fir Haven.

But when the arrogant yet handsome crime writer Dexter Grayling almost runs over Elle in his beast of a sports car, the town is thrown into a tailspin – especially when Dexter claims that local resident Linda Carlucci has put a curse on him and he is no longer able to write.

Can Elle put aside her dislike for the self-absorbed writer and help Dexter uncover what is really going on with the Carlucci family? And in the process will Elle realise that there’s a lot more to her beloved Fir Haven than she first thought…


I absolutely adore this series, not only because its based in Scotland but also because they are very well written and cosy.

The latest installment is another wonderful read, I was hooked from the start. There were plenty of twists and turns to keep you on your toes. It was a fab romantic read, absolutely adored Elle.

I look forward to reading more in this series. Highly recommend.
