Hooked on Ewe - Hannah Reed

The second book in the Scottish Highlands series, Hooked on Ewe was just....okay.  I really can't put my finger on exactly what it was that rubbed me the wrong way.  It just seemed....distracted, I guess.  That's the best word I can come up with.  You know when you call someone on the phone and are trying to get information from them and you can tell they're doing something else and they're not totally with you?  That's how this book felt; like the author was busy playing Candy Crush on her phone while writing this. 

 

I figured out whodunit fairly early on in the book, and despite several red herrings (or attempts at red herrings) I really never wavered on it.  There's also a potential love triangle in the works, and the more-than-a-little-implausible-plot-thread where Eden is made a Constable.  You know, because it's commonplace to deputize a foreigner into the police force.

 

Not a bad book, and I enjoyed it for the most part but a lot of little things detracted from a mediocre plot.
