Shetland Island series
I read the first in this series a couple years ago and kind of wanted to get into the series but there was no time. This is the second – finally.
The setting of the Shetland Islands, where the long days and white nights of summer, is one of the draws on this delicious who-done-it. The characters are interesting and nicely developed while the plot is twisty and surprising. The overarching relationship between Jimmy Perez, the island’s detective and the protagonist of the series, and Fran Hunter, a local artist, is interesting but it never takes over.
