After a knee injury forces professional Scottish dancer,
Liss MacCrimmon to give up her life of performing
strathspreys, reels, jigs and Highland flings she returns to
her hometown of Moosetookalook, Maine, where she runs a
Scottish Emporium. With one solved murder case under her
dance belt, Liss has no idea she's about to spiral into
another. . .
Liss still misses the life of a professional dancer with
Strathspey, the Scottish dance company she belonged to. So
she arranges a reception for the troupe when they're on
tour, complete with a Scottish theme that includes a new
spin on the classic Scottish Scone.
Liss soon realizes that life in the group isn't all happy
jigs and fancy stepping. Victor Owens, the company manager,
has been making life miserable for everyone. But she has no
idea how miserable until Victor bites into one of Liss's
prized cocktail scones, collapses and dies. When the police
set their sights on Liss and her best friends, it's up to
Liss to find out whodunit before this culinary killer makes
an encore. . .
