Overkilt (A Liss MacCrimmon Mystery #12) (Mass Market)

Overkilt (A Liss MacCrimmon Mystery #12) By Kaitlyn Dunnett Cover Image
Not Available


“An enjoyable cozy from start to finish.”
Publishers Weekly

While Liss MacCrimmon preps the Scottish Emporium for November’s inevitable shopping rush, other local businesses aren’t half as lucky. When her father-in-law decides to entice childless couples desperate for a holiday away from family to his rustic hotel, the unusual marketing tactic has everyone in Moosetookalook, Maine, in an uproar. Liss dismisses the bad publicity as being totally “overkilt”—until angry mobs fill the streets, the troublemaker who started it all turns up dead, and her loved ones are suspected of murder. It’s up to Liss to digest a slew of unsettling clues and catch the real killer before everything she’s ever been thankful for vanishes before her eyes.
“Full of local color, suspicious characters, and adorable fur-babies. What's not to like?”
Kirkus Reviews on The Scottie Barked at Midnight
