Cold Feet, Karen Pullen

Cold FeetCold Feet by Karen Pullen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

One of those procedural/cozy blends, which misses out on the best parts of both.

Stella Lavender is recovering from her recent break-up with her unfaithful boyfriend, so looking forward to attending a Scots-based wedding at a local B&B. It's also a respite from her work as a drug buyer gathering evidence for the DEA. As so often happens in these books, there's a murder - the bride. Because she's on-site, Stella starts to help with the investigation and manages to get herself seconded officially. There's one big twist to the murder, and another one in the drug investigation. And (no big surprise) Stella is essential to the solving of both. Had this concentrated on one or the other, this might have been a better read.
