Can there be such a thing as too many men in kilts? Normally
Liss MacCrimmon, proprietor of Moosetookalook, Maineâ€™s one
and only Scottish Emporium, would say no. But thatâ€™s before
one of them turns out to be murderousâ€¦
The bagpipes are blaring at The Spruces, Moosetookalookâ€™s
finest hotel, reopened just in time to host the Burns Night
Supper, an annual celebration of Scotlandâ€™s beloved poet,
Robert Burns. In the midst of the long Maine winter, the
festivities are just the thing to give the hotel a much
needed boostâ€”and to bring fresh business to Lissâ€™s shop.
But when the Scottish Heritage Appreciation Society arrives
on the scene, they bring more than a hunger for haggis and a
passion for plaid. The quarrelsome group harbors their share
of long held grudges, and the animosity only grows as the
whiskey flows. Then a fierce blizzard hits, trapping
everyoneâ€”angry Scotsmen, hapless hotel staff, and Liss
Itâ€™s a situation with all the makings for mayhem, and sure
enough, it isnâ€™t long before a body is discovered, face down
in a storage room, covered in tartanâ€”and blood.
Lucky for Liss, sheâ€™s got some good friends alongside her to
help sort out the facts: local police officer Sherri
Willett, and Dan Ruskin, the man whoâ€™s got Liss all tied up
in Celtic knots. But theyâ€™ll have to work fast, before
another body goes as cold as the snowstorm keeping them
cooped up with a killer.
