It's winter in Glenkillen and Eden Elliott
is still ensconced in a cottage at the MacBride farm. A nice
escape from being snowbound is an outing to a whisky tasting
with Leith Cameron. This should be an evening to remember!
During the event, Eden discovers Henrietta
McCloud—dead in a discarded washback container! Why
was she murdered? Eden decides to investigate and be the special
constable involved with finding the truth. This is not an
easy task, and when her own heritage comes into the mix, things
go from bad to worse!
I haven't read the previous books in this
series, although they have been reviewed on MyShelf. I loved
everything about this book! I've been a fan on Hannah Reed
and her Queen Bee Mystery Series, and now I'm kicking myself
for letting this newer series get by me. On the other hand,
now I've got a couple of previous books in this series to
look forward to!
I loved the use of Scottish language, and
the way Reed brings Scotland up close and personal. Eden is
a fascinating character, living a world away from her previous
life, and the way she manages to adapt and thrive made me
smile. The mystery kept me guessing, the characters kept me
interested, and the humor kept me amused! I can't wait to
Anyone who has read Hannah Reed's other books,
including her works under the name Deb Baker, won't want to
miss this. What a great read! This would be really good for
a book group, or anyone planning to travel to Scotland (read
it on the plane!), and cozy lovers in general!
