Murder at a Scottish Social (A Scottish Shire Mystery)

We rated this book:


Paislee donates a sweater from Cashmere Crush to an auction held for the local food bank, where she partakes in a baking competition with her closest friends. They’re quickly drawn into a mom clique’s drama that take baking a bit too seriously. When their leader has a fatal allergic reaction to a baked good, Paislee’s friend is the prime suspect. Can Paislee prove her friend’s innocence before catching the attention of the killer?

The mystery centers on the murder of a queen bee personality, which creates drama and gossip as her personal life and secrets (such as an affair) are revealed. This delightful cozy has a knitting essence through Paislee’s store and her Thursday night Knit and Sips group, where crafters gather to knit and gossip. Scotland serves as the lovely setting by providing a gorgeous backdrop and dialogue with an accent. Paislee’s family dynamic is sweet and wholesome while serving as the story’s heart and the perfect support system for her sleuthing.

Murder at a Scottish Social is a mystery with heart, baked goods, a Scottish dialect, humor, and plenty of knitting.
