Death Distilled: A Whisky Business Mystery
by Melinda Mullet
This is such a wonderfully written story that ties the 1800s to present day Scotland…The author does an amazing job of taking readers on a guided tour of a distillery by words that are vivid.
Fast paced and delightful, this mystery will keep you on edge wondering about motive, means and opportunity.
What an engaging story! Atmospheric, intelligent, and just plain entertaining (to borrow from Abi’s three-word descriptions of people she met). I was pleasantly surprised to find such richness and depth in a cozy mystery.
~The Power of Words
The plot is full of twists and turns that keeps you on the edge of your seat and looking forward to the end and filling in the blanks.
~My Reading Journeys
Ms. Mullet packs so much into 240 pages. Murder, dysfunctional families, romance, a rock concert, drama, suspense, whisky, Japanese businessmen, and even a flock of sheep. This book will join the first as one of my Best Reads this year.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
I’ve got to say, I absolutely loved the setting of this book. It was so unique and different from everything else that I’ve read.
The big reveal of the culprit at the end was very well done. First, I did not have a clue who it was, until Abi tells the readers, and it was rather dramatic, resulting in a rather serious injury for Abi.
This book was amazing and I couldn’t wait to get to the end only because I wanted the answers to the mystery, now I can’t wait for another book to come.
Exciting, riveting, and intricately detailed. These are the three words that first come to my head when I try to describe Death Distilled by Melinda Mullet.
Melinda Mullet delivers a fresh mystery filled with nostalgia. Complex characters and a finely tuned mystery make DEATH DISTILLED an adult mystery worth savoring.

Photojournalist by trade, distillery owner by blood, and amateur sleuth by necessity, Abigail Logan learns that murder can’t stay bottled up forever in this charming Whisky Business Mystery.
It’s been three months since Abi Logan last checked in on Abbey Glen, the celebrated whisky distillery she inherited. With her oversize wheaten terrier, Liam, by her side, Abi returns to the quaint Scottish village of Balfour. But her relaxing Highland homecoming takes a stressful turn when she unearths an unseemly bit of village history, welcomes a group of Japanese whisky enthusiasts, and becomes shepherdess to an unexpected flock of sheep—all within the first twenty-four hours. Still, nothing’s more stressful than murder. . . .
Local celebrity Rory Hendricks is the hotheaded, hard-rocking former frontman of the Rebels—and Abi’s girlhood crush. After meeting him in person, Abi can’t say no to anything he asks, like photographing his upcoming show . . . or figuring out who’s trying to kill him. Turns out someone’s been bumping off his old bandmates, with the drummer dead under mysterious circumstances and the keyboardist in a coma following a hit-and-run. Now a series of threatening messages leads Rory to think he’s next on the chopping block. And the band has a devil’s share of broken hearts and bitter disputes in their past, leaving Abi a huge batch of suspects to sift through—all before the killer takes another shot.
