Liss MacCrimmon, purveyor of all things plaid at the Moosetookalook Scottish Emporium in Maine, can't wait to cozy up to the town's first annual mystery book conference. The outlook seems very bonnie indeed for all the local businesses, including her fiancé's family-owned hotel. But when a reviewer with a grudge takes a swan dive off a scenic lookout, Liss discovers the crime scene bonanza a bit too real. With a conference full of potential suspects--from a famous actress-turned-bestselling author to her power-broker agent, to an overextended events coordinator with plenty to hide--it will take a killer instinct to figure out which writer belongs in the true crime section. . .before the murderer pens The End for another innocent victim.

Praise for the Liss MacCrimmon Mysteries!

"Enjoyable. . .vivid descriptions of Maine during mud season and a quirky cast of characters lift this cozy." --Publishers Weekly on Scone Cold Dead

"High-kicking fun with characters as colorful as the tartans. . .a delightful new series." --Dorothy Cannell on Kilt Dead

Review: Scotched (A Liss MacCrimmon Mystery #5)

User Review  - Susan Banner - Goodreads

Fluffy read, way too much repetition in the writing. The story would have read so much better at about half the length. There are only so many times you can walk back and forth in a town the size of Moosetookalook! In addition, the tension between the ex and current is downright junior high! Read full review
