After a murder in a Maine mansion, an amateur sleuth must take a bite out of crime: “Spooky . . . Cozy fans are in for a Halloween treat.” —Publishers Weekly
Liss MacCrimmon’s Scottish Emporium is thrilled to be organizing Moosetookalok, Maine’s Halloween fundraiser. But the abandoned Chadwick mansion might be too perfect a setting for a creepy old haunted house, especially when a very real-looking body with puncture marks on the neck is added to the decorations.
Asking who kilt the deceased brings up everyone from the undead to real estate agents to horror writers. But Liss had better watch her back, because the killer is much closer than she thinks!
“A solid addition to this charming series.” —RT Book Reviews
“Gives readers a chance to catch up with old friends and meet new ones.” —Kirkus
In the spooky seventh Liss MacCrimmon Scottish mystery (after 2012's Bagpipes, Brides, and Homicides) from Dunnett (the pseudonym of Kathy Lynn Emerson), Liss, the owner of the Scottish Emporium in Moosetookalook, Maine, is delighted to be participating in the preparations for the town's All Hallows Festival. But the day before Halloween, when she and her new husband, Dan Ruskin, inspect the deserted old Chadwick mansion (the venue selected as the festival's haunted house attraction), they're shocked to find the bloody body of her troubled cousin, Ned Boyd, who she thought was in jail. As a favor to her distraught Aunt Margaret, Ned's mother, Liss becomes involved in the murder investigation. Puncture marks in the victim's neck suggest a vampire is at work, but Liss soon digs up more than one ordinary human suspect. Cozy fans are in for a Halloween treat.
