Winter is leaving the residents of Glenkillen snowbound, but Eden isn’t about to let the weather dampen her spirits. With only a little time left in Scotland, she’s determined to make the most of it—starting with attending a fancy whisky tasting with local looker Leith Cameron. But her classy date turns into a major party foul after a woman is found drowned in one of the vats of alcohol.
Eden immediately steps in as a Special Constable to help solve the case, but her investigation turns sour when she realizes that the killer could be somehow connected to her own Scottish heritage. Now, in order to find the proof she needs to put the murderer behind bars, she’ll have to take a shot at unearthing her family’s past—before she herself winds up buried…
Author Eden Elliott’s time in Glenkillen, Scotland is drawing to close. She has been invited to a whisky tasting with Leith Cameron. The date totally goes off track when a body is found in a vat during a tour of the warehouse. Eden is called upon in her Special Constable status to work the case. When the investigation leads to a bit of her own heritage she and others believe she could be in danger. To solve the crime secrets may be revealed, secrets Eden had wished would stay secret.
Hannah Reed has given us another fantastic story. A story that goes full circle as many secrets are revealed – Secrets of Eden’s family and secrets about her journey to the Scottish Highlands.
Eden is a wonderful character. She has embraced her time in Scotland meeting new people and trying new things. Yes, she may have distant relatives there but that was not her purpose in coming. She wanted to write the best stories she could, set in the highlands and when her best friend suggested she go there she knew it was the right decision. Eden has grown so much since she has arrived. She is much more confident and that shows in her daily life and in her her writing.
All the characters the author gives us are unique and realistic. The imagery she has created with her words makes the area come alive. Picturing the winter days there was so easy.
The story had such a great flow, not too slow, not too fast, just right. There were plenty of twists and some puzzling clues.
Each story in this series takes us off on a fabulous adventure. The characters are so appealing, I love the lilt of the language and the humor sprinkled throughout. I will never get to actually travel to Scotland but Hannah Reed has transported me there virtually three times and I hope she gets the chance to take us back there again soon.
Each story reads well as a stand alone, but for maximum enjoyment you need to escape into all three.
