Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: While Liss readies the Scottish Emporium for November's inevitable shopping rush, her father-in-law's rustic hotel can barely turn a profit during the stretch between autumn's peak and ski season. Mr. Ruskin decides that the recipe for success lies in enticing an untapped niche clientele: childless couples desperate for a holiday away from family. The unusual marketing tactic has everyone in Moosetookalook talking. Unfortunately, it also inspires a scathing social media campaign aimed at persuading tourists to boycott the hotel for affronting family values. When the troublemaker who started it all turns up dead, Liss can't follow police orders to stay out of the investigation. -- adapted from publisher info

    Liss MacCrimmon, owner of the Moosetookalook Scottish Emporium in Maine, is angry when Hadley Spinner, leader of the cultlike New Age Pilgrims, targets her business and those of her family, as well as a lesbian-owned coffee house. Spinner is encouraging people to boycott the businesses due to Liss' father-in-law's couples-weekend promotion at his inn, which Spinner perceives as against family values. Soon the group's picketing begins to drive away customers from the shops during one of their busiest seasons, angering the shopkeepers. When one of the New Age Pilgrims is murdered, Liss' family members and friends are suspects, especially her husband, who earlier attacked the murder victim as he was unleashing his vitriol on Liss and her beloved aunt. The fabric of small-town Maine life provides much of the appeal in this cozy, which features details about the operation of a small business and the way hatred of intolerant groups can affect innocent people.

Many Scottish festivals and parades later, and after a brief stint as bass drummer with a bagpipe band, she decided to combine her love of things Scottish with her love of writing. The Liss MacCrimmon mysteries are the result. Kaitlyn lives in the mountains of western Maine and can be reached through her website at www.kaitlyndunnett.com.
