    Kaitlyn Dunnett's Latest Mystery is the Who Dunnit of the Year

    Scotched By: Kaitlyn Dunnett Copyright November 2011 Publisher: Kensington Hundreds of the most creative minds in murder are assembling in the tiny town of Moosetookalook, Maine-and before the final page is turned, one of them will be writing in the past tense. . . Liss MacCrimmon, purveyor of all things plaid at the Moosetookalook Scottish Emporium, couldn't be more pleased that her hometown is hosting the First Annual Maine-ly Cozy Con. The mystery book conference promises to attract plenty of popular authors, as well as new business for Moosetookalook's unique local shops. And with her new fiancé Dan's family-owned hotel filling with attendees, the outlook seems very bonnie indeed. But soon, Liss and Dan discover just how far some authors take their research. When a muckraking reviewer with a grudge takes a swan dive off a scenic lookout, no one wants to believe it was homicide. After all, it's one thing to dream up imaginary crimes-but to commit a real one takes motive, means, and extreme maliciousness. The more Liss learns, the more she realizes just how many people are glad the deceased has written her final story. And with an entire conference brimming with potential suspects-from a famous actress-turned-bestselling author to her power-broker agent, and an overextended events coordinator with plenty to hide-it will take a killer instinct to figure out which writer belongs in the true crime section. . .before the murderer pens The End for another innocent victim. . . This is by far the most complicated and interesting mystery that Liss MacCrimmon has been involved in. She and her fiancé are working the case while trying to stay out of the way of Gordon Tandy (her ex boyfriend) who is the investigator in charge of this latest death. Being part of the State Police means his presence trumps all the local cops. Things start out really simple for Liss. She has a table at the First Annual Maine-ly Cozy Con. Granted, most people aren't interested in Scottish books or clothing, but Liss thinks that she will make sales. Besides, her best friend Nola has a table there also, selling books by the authors who are at this con. The Conference is full of readers, fans and well known authors. Finding out who done what to whom is going to bring real life mystery to this mystery gathering. I love this series. It pulled me in the minute I started reading the first book (Kilt Dead). Ms. Dennett's style of writing is entertaining and informative also. I learned a lot about Scottish heritage and sports from these mysteries. I highly recommend her to all lovers of mystery and good humor. FTC Full Disclosure: I received this book from the publisher who only asked for a fair and impartial review.

    Scotched is an engaging MacCrimmon amateur sleuth

    In Moosetookalook, Maine the Spruces Hotel hosts the First Annual Maine-ly Cozy Con for mystery fans who prefer limited violence and no graphic sex. The headline at the May gala is actress turned mystery writer Yvonne Quinlan. Also attending is odious blogger J. Nedlinger, who described the actress' book as trash to be tossed out. The town's storekeepers look forward to the gala as they expect plenty of cozy aficionados will buy items from shops such as at Liss MacCrimmon's everything plaid Scottish Emporium.

    However, the Con turns graphically ugly when Nedlinger falls off Lover's Leap cliff. While no one liked the vicious unscrupulous blogger, everyone assumes it was a horrible accident. However, Liss reconsiders that premise when she realizes how many people celebrate the death of J. Nedlinger. When another victim surfaces, Liss and her town cohorts investigate who is murdering the Con.

    Scotched is an engaging MacCrimmon amateur sleuth as the heroine and her BFFs look into the homicides. The background of a cozy Con makes for a fun retinue as does springtime in Maine. Cozy fans will enjoy attending the First Annual Maine-ly Cozy Con.

    Not a cozy crazy myself and not having read the four books befor

    Not a cozy crazy myself and not having read the four books before this one, I think I am out of the loop. felt like an amped up episode of Murder She Worte, the main setting, the busybody lady solving crimes. But that said, I used to watch alot of Murder She wrote just don't find it as startling as I did as a kid, same goes with this book! An ok read.

    Tiresome

    Same old story, Liss MacCrimmon sticks her nose in when it should be tending to other things. Two violent deaths, sends her running all over the place to catch the killer. Oh my, there he is and he's gonna kill her if Dan doesn't dp battle!
