Inversgail, on the west coast of the Scottish Highlands,
welcomes home native daughter and best-selling
environmental writer Daphne Wood. Known as the icon of
ecology, Daphne will spend three months as the author in
residence for the Inversgail schools. Janet Marsh and her
business partners at Yon Bonnie Books are looking forward
to hosting a gala book signing for her. Daphne, who
hasn’t set foot in Scotland in thirty years, is . . .
eccentric. She lives in the Canadian wilderness, in a
cabin she built herself, with only her dog for a
companion, and her people skills have developed a few
rough-hewn edges. She and the dog (which she insists on
bringing with her) cause problems for the school, the
library, and the bookshop even before they get to
Inversgail. Then, on the misty night they arrive, a young
man—an American who’d spent a night in the B&B above Yon
Bonnie Books—is found dead outside a pub.
Daphne did her Inversgail homework and knows that Janet
and her partners solved a previous murder. She tries to
persuade them to join her in uncovering the killer and
the truth. To prove she’s capable, she starts poking and
prying. But investigating crimes can be murder, and
Daphne ends up dead, poisoned by scones from the tearoom
at Yon Bonnie Books. Now, to save the reputation of their
business—not to mention the reputation of their scones—
Janet and her partners must solve both murders. And
Daphne’s dog might be able to help them, if only they can
get it to stop howling. . .
