This was a very good cozy mystery. I found the heroine and most of the characters to be very likeable and realistic. The detective was the only one I did not find ot be likeable but I guess that was what the author wanted. I would definitely recommend this book to cozy lovers looking for something new from a new author.

My biggest complaint about this book is that it ended very abruptly. I turned the last page fully expecting to see at least another paragraph or chapter, but that wasn't the case. Another small complaint is that I figured out who the bad guy was very early on and it was starting to get annoying that they weren't figuring it out in the book. But, overall, I really enjoyed it. I will definitely read the next book in the series, no doubt about it. I hope the characters evolve a little and that should make for a very good sequel. :)

Super new series by Kathy Lynn Emerson's nom de plume. A cozy Maine town is the setting and the main character (a former professional Scottish dancer) comes home to re-think her life after a career-ending injury. Just enough Highland lore to tantalize the reader, and an ending full of surprises. I'm looking forward to "Scone Cold Dead" and the further adventures of Amaryllis Rosalie MacCrimmon.

The author obviously enjoys the Scottish trivia, but her writing is cliche and stilted. Towards the end it appeared that she was running out of ideas to finish the book and rapidly had the killer confess when confronted. I also had the killer picked out the first time they appeared in the text.

I really enjoyed this first mystery in the new series by Kaitlyn Dunnett (pen name of Kathy Lynn Emerson). Liss MacCrimmon has returned to her small Maine hometown of Moosetookalook to mind her Aunt Margaret's shop which sells all things Scottish. But when Liss finds the body of her elderly neighbor in the store's stockroom, she finds herself as the police's prime suspect. I really liked the characters in this story and look forward to reading the rest of this series.

As the owner of a Scottish shop, I found the author had a good grasp of Scottish festival and items found in a Scottish shop. I thoroughly enjoyed the book.

First in series...Liss MacCrimmon returns to Moosetookalook when a serious knee injury ends her career as a dancer. She has come to help in her aunt's Scottish shop. When a nosy neighbor is found dead in the store, Liss naturally becomes the prime suspect . I was disappointed how narrow minded the chief investigator was. He decided that Liss was guilty and he seemed to do very little investigation to the other potential culprits. I found that very disconcerting and I hope, unrealistic....I figured out who dun it, but overall I found the book enjoyable, and I will read the next in the series....
