Here‘s another book I have on the go and it‘s my first (but definitely not my last!) by this Scottish cozy middlebrow author.

Twenty-five-year-old Beatrice, a shy homebody, is left at loose ends when her mother dies; she has a comfortable income but no home to call her home. She moves from Glasgow to London stay at her wealthy brother‘s house but as the family can‘t be bothered with her she strikes out to find where she fits in.

rubyslippersreads Does the #littlebrasshand think it‘s a biography? 😂 4mo
LeahBergen @Centique @DebinHawaii It would be more fitting for a serial killer novel. 😆 4mo
LeahBergen @rubyslippersreads It thinks it surely deserves one. 😆 4mo
