As a professional Scottish dancer, Liss MacCrimmon has
performed strathsprays and reels, jigs and Highland flings
until a knee injury cuts her career short. Returning to
her hometown of Moosetookalook, Maine, she decides to help
her aunt run her Scottish emporium. But when murder rears
its ugly head in the idyllic, quiet village, Liss will
have to add sleuthing to her repertoire...
Liss hasn't been in Moosetookalook in over ten years, but
the quaint little town, nestled in the hilly terrain of
western Maine, looks exactly as she remembers it. Only
home a day before her aunt takes off on a tour of
Scotland, Liss mans the emporium's booth at the annual
Western Maine Highland Games. There she gets reacquainted
with some old friends and new local characters, including
an obnoxious real estate agent and his spoiled girlfriend
who insists on ordering a custom-made kilt sewn from a
plaid called the Flower of Scotland.
Liss knows a sale is a sale and returns to the emporium
that night exhausted yet happy. But her bliss soon turns
to dread when she finds the dead body of her aunt's nosy
neighbor, Amanda Norris, under a bolt of the Flower of
Scotland fabric in the stock room. And if things weren't
bad enough, the state police hone in on Liss as the prime
With the help of Dan Ruskin, a neighbor and former high
school classmate, Liss begins her own investigation that
uncovers secrets about the residents of Moosetookalook-
secrets she wished had stayed buried. Now Liss will have
to do some fancy footwork to prove she's innocent while
avoiding becoming the killer's next victim...
