“Aspiring romance author Eden Elliot investigates a twisty murder that leaves her small Scottish village both shaken and stirred...”

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 read more!

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!
