Moosetookalook, Maine, has never seen so many bare legs walking its streets. It could only mean one thing: the Western Maine Highland Games are in town for the weekend. But instead of wondering who’ll win the hammer throw, everyone’s asking who got kilt…
Even if Liss MacCrimmon, soon to be Mrs. Dan Ruskin, spends her days running the Moosetookalook Scottish Emporium, all she wants is a simple white wedding as she walks down the aisle accompanied by her father. When it comes to weddings, however, her mother, Vi, has another idea about tradition. Instead of white, Vi sees tartan, tartan, and more tartan.
What bonnie luck then that Liss and Dan’s wedding is scheduled on the same weekend as the Western Maine Highland Games. What could make a nuptial weekend more memorable than a hammer throw or medieval reenactment group to go along with the tossing of the bouquet? How about a charming college professor found slashed to death by his own reproduction of a broadsword?
But who’d go medieval on a professor, no matter how nutty? Turns out the deceased had plenty of enemies, including a line of female conquests stretching back to the dark ages, a band of picketers protesting his historically questionable theories, and a strapping collegiate with a howdy-doody smile. And topping the suspect list is Liss’s own father, Donald “Mac” MacCrimmon!
As much as Liss tries to keep her fingers out of the sleuthing cake, she finds herself again dead center of a Moosetookalook murder mystery. If Liss doesn’t solve this one, and quick, she might never say “I do,” let alone “’til death do us part.”
Liss is a very nervous bride to be. It’s not just the plans for the wedding (which her mother wants to take over), it’s also finding a dress (which her mom has already designed in her head), keeping up with her online sales, and spending quality time with her fiancé. On top of all that she’s got another murder to solve so that the nuptials can take place on schedule.
Why is Liss involved in another murder you might ask… well her dad’s under suspicion of killing a college professor that his wife once had an affair with. Don’t you just love it when your past comes back to bite you in the butt?
All Liss wanted was a romantic Church Wedding, something that was simple and elegant. I totally loved the book and the fact that the romance between Liss and Dan is there to be seen, and even the love between her parents. All in all this is a great summer read for anyone looking for a cozy to take along to the beach or on summer vacation.
FTC Full Disclosure: I received an ARC of this book from the publisher who only asked for a fair review in return.
