Book 9 in the Liss MacCrimmon Mystery series 
by Kaitlyn Dunnett

Spring is just a few weeks away, but winter is still digging its claws into tiny Moosetookalook, Maine. Even business at the Scottish Emporium has frozen up, so Liss MacCrimmon is cautiously optimistic when a twist of fate lands her on a reality competition show--until the contest gets a little too cutthroat. . .

Driving on an icy road on a truly dark and stormy night, Liss swerves her car when something darts out in front of it. She braves the weather and discovers a Scottish terrier shivering in the snow. Relieved that the dog survived their run-in, Liss sets out in search of her owner, unaware that the Scottie is actually a tiny celebrity--or that she was dognapped. 

Liss soon sniffs out the pup's owner, a well-heeled woman named Deidre Amendole, who is ecstatic to be reunited with her furry friend. Deidre and her Dancing Doggies recently won Variety Live, and the trio is slated to appear in the reality show's "champion of champions" competition. But for Deidre, the contest is over before it's begun when she turns up dead. . .

Deidre's daughter asks Liss to help find out what happened to her mother--and to take Deidre's place on the upcoming show. Before Liss can tell her she's barking up the wrong tree, she finds herself ensnarled in the strange world of reality competitions and hot on the trail of a deadly dognapper. And just as she starts pawing at the truth, Liss realizes she could be next on the murderer's list. . .


In THE SCOTTIE BARKED AT MIDNIGHT author Kaitlyn Dunnett has gone to the dogs. Champion competition dogs that is.

This book starts out with an exciting first scene and the excitement, as well as the fun and mystery, continue right up to the last page. The plot was a good one. Very tight and well written with interesting main, and supporting characters, and wonderful situations. The story find Liss out of her store, Scottish Emporium, and into the world of a variety competition show. It was fun to get a behind the scenes look into such a hectic world.

Ms. Dunnett finally brings a Scotty dog into her series. But the question is, will the Scottie be a regular character? You have to read the book to find out! ;-)

Fans of this long running series with be pleased with this installment. And new readers need not worry, you can read this story without having read the others. 


Book 1 in the Liv and Di in Dixie Mystery series 
by Vickie Fee

In the quirky, close-knit town of Dixie, Tennessee, party planner Liv McKay has a knack for throwing Southern-style soirĂ©es, from diamonds-and-denim to black tie affairs, and her best friend Di Souther mixes a mean daiquiri. While planning a Moonshine and Magnolias bash for high maintenance clients, Liv inconveniently discovers a corpse in the freezer and turns her attention from fabulous fĂȘtes to finding a murderer. Together, Liv and Di follow a trail of sinister secrets in their sweet little town that leads them from drug smugglers to a Civil War battlefield, and just when they think they're whistling Dixie, Liv and Di will find themselves squarely in the crosshairs of the least likely killer of all. . . 


Author Vickie Fee wasted no time in getting DEATH CRASHES THE PARTY off to an exciting start!

While turning many colorful phrases, Ms. Fee introduces us to Liv McKay and her friend Di Souther, as well as a delightfully fun cast of supporting characters.

As I mentioned above, this book beginning with an exciting start that throws the reader right into the story and takes us on a mysterious ride packed with intrigue, questions, and suspects! And all of this leads to an ending that I never would have guessed.

Vickie Fee is a strong, talented writer who knows how to capture her readers quickly, entertain us thoroughly, and leave us wanting more. I know I sure do. I’m looking forward to watching this series grow.
