Overview

When Inversgail welcomes home native daughter and bestselling environmental writer Daphne Wood for her tenure as the author-in-residence for Inversgail schools, Janet Marsh and her business partners at Yon Bonnie Books look forward to hosting a book signing for her. However, Daphne's people skills have developed a few rough edges after living alone in the Canadian wilderness for years and working with her is difficult. Things only become more complicated once she arrives. That night, a young man-an American who'd spent a night in the B&B above Yon Bonnie Books-is found dead outside a pub. Knowing that Janet and her partners solved a previous murder, Daphne tries to persuade them to help her investigate. But while she's trying to prove herself to them, she ends up dead, poisoned by scones from the Yon Bonnie Books tearoom. Now to save the reputation of their business-not to mention the reputation of their scones-Janet and her partners must solve both murders.

This is the first book I have read by Molly MacRae. It is also the second book in this series. I felt a little lost as far as the many characters in this book and I feel that had I read the first book in the series, I might have understood who was who and why they were in the story. After getting through that bit of a hump, I enjoyed the story. There are references to the last book but not so much that it gives away the plot line of it. In this story, a prodigal daughter returns home again to the small town in Scotland where she was raised. She is a famous author who has been living in the wilds of Canada. Literally, the wilds. She lives in a cabin in the middle of nowhere. While she is not an appealing individual, as the story evolves, one discovers why she acts as unpleasant as she does. Janet, one of the American owners of Yon Bonnie Books (likewise in the same town) is almost dragged into solving the murder of a young American man. The road to finding the whodunnit is perilous and dangerous to others as well as Janet and her three co-owners. I didn’t see the solution until close to the end but there were clues left to follow. I was provided a digital advance reader copy of this book by the publisher via Netgalley.

A wonderfully put together mystery filled with a batch of charming characters and a location that would be on most people's bucket list. I didn't know which way to turn, their were so many suspects to choose from and motives abound. Who could it be and why were the questions I found myself asking over and over. When I thought I had it all figured out something else would pop out of the woodwork and lead me in a different direction. If you enjoy cozy mysteries, the highlands, and puzzle solving this is the series for you. I can't wait to see where the author leads us next.
