Great book by a great author.........
A great mystery at the Highland games.......
You won't be able to put it down!
These Elizabeth MacPherson mysteries are a lot of fun, with characters you'd swear you've met and intriguing plots and settings. This one takes place at the Glencoe Moutain Games, a Scottish festival.
Witty mystery with an interesting Scottish-American backgroud.
In her third outing as amateur sleuth, Elizabeth MacPherson has the chance to revel in the rites of the old country at the annual Glencoe Mountain Games. But the innocent ethnic fair is cursed when the loathed Colin Campbell is found murdered. When a second reveler is found dead, Elizabeth lays to hunt and untangles all....
Good story......very funny.
forensic anthropologist Elizabeth MacPherson gets a chance to revel in the rites of the old country at the annual Flencoe Mountain Games, the Scottish festival where several hundred like-minded americans celebrate thier ancestors' flokways. But innocent ethnic fair is cursed when the lasthed Colin Campbell is found murdered.
Then a second murder silences everyone's bagpipes for good. Enter Elizabeth, who makes short work of her search for motive and murderer.
This was a fun and easy read. However, I knew by the middle of the book who the murderer was, before the murders were even committed. Still, there was a surprise at the end of the book that I hadn't anticipated. It also helped that I had attended a highlands festival once. But unlike many of the characters in the book, I was unable to find a tartan for MacFasulo!
A delightful, witty and clever look at that American construct--the Scottish festival and Highland games.
3rd in series, can't wait for the fourth!
