Spotlight - Off Kilter

Today I'd like to shine a spotlight on on Off Kilter by Hannah Reed, the first in the Scottish Highlands Mystery series. This book on my actual TBR pile. (Meaning I actually own the book and am waiting to read it as opposed to just wanting to read it; that's my even larger virtual TBR pile!)

From the back cover:

A brand new series from a national bestselling author Hannah Reed, in which a young American writer finds herself swept up in a murder amid the glens and lochs of the Scottish Highlands...

After the recent death of her mother and the dissolution of her marriage, thirty-something Eden Elliott is seriously in need of a fresh start. She decides to embark on an open-ended trip to the picturesque village of Glenkillen in the  Scottish Highlands to do some hands-on research for a novel she's writing. But almost as soon as Eden arrives in the quaint town, she gets caught up in a very real drama...

The town''s sheep shearer is found murdered-clipped with his own shears-and the locals suspect Vicki MacBride, an outsider whose father's recent death left her the surprise heir to his lucrative sheep farm. Eden refuses to believe the affable heiress is a murderer. but can she prove that someone is out to frame her new friend before she finds herself on the receiving end of more shear terror?

Although I haven't yet read Off Kilter, I lent it to my mom who said she really enjoyed it!
