Thanks to the Western Maine Highland Games, Moosetookalook, Maine, has never seen so many bare legs walking its streets. But instead of wondering who'll win the hammer throw, everyone's asking who got kilt. Especially Liss MacCrimmon, purveyor of the town's Scottish Emporium, since it's also her wedding weekend. And nothing scotches up nuptial bliss like a dead body. But who'd go medieval on a professor, no matter how nutty? 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." "Filled with gems of Scottish history and culture, this intelligent entry will appeal to newcomers and established fans alike." -- Publishers Weekly

The latest in Dunnett's Liss MacCrimmon series finds Liss, who helps her aunt run a Scottish emporium in Moosetookalook, Maine, preparing for her wedding while working to clear her father as a murder suspect. After the Medieval Scottish Conclave asks Liss to put a display of weapons in the shop window to advertise an upcoming festival, one of the firearms is used to bludgeon Professor Palsgrave, the contentious leader of the group, to death. The group's planned historical reenactment had drawn protests because of its subject matter, but the murder weapon is found in Liss' father's trunk after he was heard arguing with Palsgrave, and Liss discovers her mother had an affair with the professor. The pacing is slower in this installment than in earlier outings, owing to the abundance of historical detail, but cozy readers will enjoy the ambience, as well as Dunett's take on the rigors of wedding planning. Fans of Scottish lore or bookstore mysteries like Lorna Barrett's and Carolyn Hart's will enjoy this one, too. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.
KAITLYN DUNNETT first caught the Scottish heritage bug when her husband learned to play the bagpipes. 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.
