Time to head to snowy Maine to the wee town of Moosetookalook. I say “wee” because the mystery centers around the Scottish Emporium where you can find kilts in all colors and sizes. This is the 13th book in the Liss MacCrimmon Scottish Mystery Series and full of cute little dogs, mysteries from the past and evil corporate conglomerate. Perfect for a snowy afternoon.
A series of blizzards have kept tourists away from Moosetookalook, Maine, and shoppers out of Liss MacCrimmon’s Scottish Emporium. But as warmer weather brings promises of tartan sales and new faces, melting snow reveals cold-blooded murder . . .
Liss has suddenly found herself in charge of the March Madness Mud Season Sale, a town-wide celebration created to boost the local economy during the slushy weeks of early spring. With businesses ailing after a rough winter, the pressure is on to make this year’s effort the can’t-miss-event of the season. But before Liss can get her hands dirty, her husband makes a horrifying discovery. There’s a dead man on their property, and he didn’t die of natural causes . . .
It’s a snowy time in Moosetookalook where Liss and Dan are dogsitting two Scotties, Dandy and Doni. Liss runs a specialty gift store and Dan is on the way to his carpentry shop when they discover a dead body in the garden. Liss immediately recognizes something familiar about the dead man, but can’t figure out what. It seems he is someone from her father’s past who has come back to town for a reason. This is the thirteenth book in this series, but my first time enjoying these characters and the little town of Moosetookalook, Maine. I would recommend this if you are a cozy mystery fan.
