REVIEW: When The Dead Come Calling

I guess because I’m not getting my quarterly trips to Scotland in this year, I am gravitating to stories set in the land of the thistle. In fact, this is my second Scottish mystery this month. I enjoyed the plot of this one; it’s set in a small town with a couple of police officers without much experience with serious crime. When the town therapist is murdered, they are forced to look more closely at their little town and just what might be lurking there. Several more folks go missing before they get a handle on what is haunting the town.

I liked the mix of real world mystery with a bit of Celtic town lore (frankly I would have liked a little more of that!). The truth of what was really going on in town was hard to read because it just strikes so close to home with the news of the day. People can just be terrible to one another and that is at the core of this story.

Thanks to Love Books Tours for access to a copy. All opinions above are my own.


Have you read more than one book in the same setting this month? Or this year?

I am the Vice President of Clinical Affairs for a medical device company where my job is to promote the utility of the device to doctors. I have science and business degrees and have editorial experience in medical communications. In college, I served as an Editorial Assistant for a healthcare communications company and have served on two editorial boards for peer-reviewed journals. In my free time, I always have a book in my hand... or two or three! On average, I read 20 books a month. I have looked to combine two of my skill sets to review on Goodreads and promote books on Instagram that I love to other readers. I'm open to partnering with publishers as an influencer for book tours, giveaways etc.
