    One thought on “Scone Cold Dead”

    1. It may not be award winning literature but Kaitlyn Dunnett s storytelling and writing keep her plots trotting along evenly Detail is never to excess, nor do we lack insight into characters It s best to show feelings rather than physical tedium I don t really care what anyone s wearing nor how they look, beyond basic sketches but if I know their concerns and their personalities essence I am keen to follow them along and root for them.The first mystery was much interesting, believable, and person [...]

    2. It wasn t as good as the first ones I read and yes, I did read out of order , but it s still fair.There s no lack of really bad puns, and no lack of people to suspect as a murderer I got a little tired of Liss and her potential boyfriends wanting to protect her I also didn t follow the romantic history between Dan and Liss possibly because it was so often stressed that Dan failed to mention how he felt Still, it was good, and nice escape literature I like this series, and I didn t expect to.

    3. Exciting addition to the seriesThis book is just as good as the first The story is written with so much detail, it s very easy to believe you are in Moosetookalook.Join Liss, Sherri, Dan in this wild adventure When the dance group comes to perform, Liss is saddened by the end of her career Seeing old friends should bring a smile to her face, instead someone is dead and Liss is back in investigation mode.

    4. The second book in the Liss MacCrimmon series wasn t as interesting as the first one I liked the setting of a Scottish emporium in Maine and the characters were good, but the story just wasn t very interesting to me It took a long time for me to get into a relatively short book and I figured out the killer pretty easily I guess I m just not a huge fan of the mystery cozy style.

    5. This was not as good as the first one, nor the later one I read out of order, but I didn t hate it I read some of the reviews and while I agreed with some of them, this series was not meant to be great literature Lighten up It s a lighthearted little mystery with characters that some may hate, not agree with, or hope they re the next victim, but it isn t as bad as some people thought Or perhaps not quite as good as others rated it It s a pleasant, cozy, not so mysterious mystery, with lots of st [...]

    6. The characters were so annoying in this book, it took me way longer than it should have to finish because I was so annoyed at them I had to walk away The dancers all seem like incredibly shallow, terrible people Liss is acting super atrocious the entire time, and Dan doesn t get a chance to do anything but be a jealous, clueless lug The mystery is decent, but it takes way too long for the actual authorities to unravel what should have been very simple.

    7. Another fun, easy read in this series I actually read this book in one sitting when I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn t sleep I like the central group of characters but also enjoy the new ones that are introduced in the plot If you are looking for a cozy mystery and an easy read, this might be for you.

    8. I received this book from the give away This is the type of book my mom loves so I gave it to her to read first So, this is her review She said it was very well told and that she loved the ending It was a fast read and interesting people Plus a 15 lb ball of fur

    9. This book was a fun book to read Quirky characters, an interesting mystery, and an exciting end I look forward to the next book in the series.

    10. I haven t read a cozy in a while and I m not sure what it is, but lately if it s not a historical amateur detective, I m losing interest in it In some ways this isn t horrible but in others, it s not that wonderful either It s a 2.5 stars than 3 I was generous given my new feelings about cozies.Liss was a pro Scottish dancer before her injury and return to Moosetookalook Maine to help her aunt run the Scottish Emporium and it s hard enough to buy a tourist town, small from all descriptions, can [...]

    11. Probably 3.5 stars The heroine is bordering on being one of those characters that thinks she knows how to investigate better than the professionals It doesn t help that the new county sheriff asks for her help and lives to regret it I think this basically goes to her head a bit She throws it in his face a few times that he originally asked for her help when he gets frustrated and a bit angry that she is meddling in his investigation At least for the most part, she has sense enough to ask someone [...]

    12. Liss MacCrimmon is back and this time she brought her friends The Irish dance group, Strathspey, is staying at Moosetookalook Maine for a couple days to perform and have a nice reception dinner Liss is so excited that she can be with her tightly knit family But all the dancers are upset and Victor, the head of the troupe, is acting strange and some ugly stories of him are starting to surface The plot thickens when he takes a big bite of a scone and dies right in the middle of the company It all [...]

    13. This book gets two rather than one star for the ingenious method of escaping from a kidnapper This is the second book in a series I liked the setting Scottish shop, small town Maine so I thought I would give it another try The main character is so selfish and unlikeable that it was hard to read She was unkind to a small child who looks up to her, encourages a friend who works two jobs and is a single mother to give up time with her son to spend time with her and then can t figure out why the chi [...]

    14. I should start by saying I am not a fan of these types of literal mysteries, James Patterson is my style while this book was Agatha Christie But I used it to kill some time on a piece of exercise equipment so it served it s purpose.I am a huge fan of rich characters and I found this book to be lacking in that department I didn t care for the main character much at all and that s half the battle right there The rest of the cast was a listing of the usual suspectsyou had the snobs, the witch, th [...]

    15. Liss is relatively new in her old home town She is helping her aunt run her business and added new fangled things like websites and online shopping With mixed feelings she has coordinated a special program at the local college her old dance troupe She is excited about seeing old friends and colleagues but it is bittersweet at times for she wants to be back and performing with them even though life on the road is hard and the work grueling on the body.Her old dance manager dies unexpectedly at th [...]

    16. The second in Kaitlyn Dunnett s Liss MacCrimmon series was very enjoyable, even better than the first Liss, formerly a professional Scottish dancer, has come home to Moosetookalook, a small town in Maine s western mountains, to help run her aunt s Scottish goods store after a knee injury ended her dance career She s arranged for her old company to give a performance in the nearby college town and is looking forward to a reunion But during the reception, the group s manager dies suddenly When the [...]

    17. Holy crud this was an amazingly bad book I found it while on summer vacation, and can t imagine reading it as anything other than a beach book so fluffy it just about floats away Every character is hilariously shallow, all the themed stuff seems tacked on it s a cozy where the main character is a retired Scottish not Irish dancer who runs a gift shop in wait for it Moosetookalook, Maine, and solves mysteries, and there are so many unrealistic plot points the MC, a small business owner, is almost [...]

    18. The second in Kaitlyn Dunnett s Liss MacCrimmon series was very enjoyable Liss, formerly a professional Scottish dancer, has returned home to Moosetookalook, a small town in Maine s western mountains, to help run her aunt s Scottish goods store after a knee injury ended her dance career She s arranged for her old company to give a performance in the nearby college town and is looking forward to a reunion But during the reception, the group s manager dies suddenly When the death proves to be murd [...]

    19. This second book in a series is almost as much fun as the first Liss is settling into her new life in her hometown, helping to run her Aunt s Scottish Emporium, testing her skills as a dance teacher and slowly re establishing a relationship with high school sweetheart Dan.Liss has invited the cast of Strathspey, the Scottish dance group she starred in, to spend a couple of nights in Moosetookalook When manager Victor is killed by mushrooms he was highly allergic hidden in a scone Liss is determi [...]

    20. I like these books I don t love them, but I don t hate them either They are a nice little mystery that has some neat Scottish stuff thrown in This is only my second and I will probably read the third at some point and then make a decision then whether or not to move on I enjoy the characters, I just wish the mystery had been a little better fleshed out I guessed early on who might be the killer and so was not surprised when it turned out to be so in my opinion, I cannot see how ANYONE would not [...]

    21. I enjoyed Kilt Dead by the same author, so I continued the series, because it was one, and in this book, I really got to like the principals quite well I am looking forward to the next installment I like books that have characters who become friends.The mystery in this one was quite interesting from the beginning, with a few false leads the investigators followed, but I had it pretty much figured out early on Not to say that is a bad thing, it usually takes me as long as the investigator to solv [...]

    22. I really enjoyed this one, although I am not so sure I am happy about the addition of a second beau for the protagonist Kind of makes her seem a bit undefined if she can t sort out who she wants to date, and is willing to take on a second boyfriend when she s already committed to the 1st one I will see how this works out in the next of the books before I decide if I will pursue this series further Other than that one complaint, the book is excellent I was kind of thinking the guilty party was wh [...]

    23. Great cozy read from Kaitlyn Dunnett I m sure that pun is intended Protagonist, Liss, very real and very likeable One fall in a performance with her Scottish Strathspey dance troupe prematurely ended her career, but not her interest in her dance family Having arranged a tour stop in her Maine hometown, she anticipates nothing but reunion But someone else has a different outcome in mind Multiple red herrings throughout the read, quirky character traits, and romantic triangles kept this reader bot [...]

    24. Liss MacCrimmon, who no longer could do Scottish dancing, is a partner in the Scottish Emporium, in a small town in Maine Her former Scottish dance troop is coming to her town to perform and at the reception given for them the manager of the troop dies of an allergic reaction to a scone containing mushrooms The troop stays in town and Liss s boyfriend Dan Ruskin is jealous when a state police officer, who plays the bagpipes, becomes interested in Liss.A member of the troop was skimming profits, [...]

    25. A solid but unremarkable entry in the series Liss invites her former dance company to town, and the manager ends up dead She decides to investigate based on a request from the lead detective and the fact that these are her friends One thing I found jarring was the idea that Dan was thinking of asking Liss to marry him We haven t seen much of their romance, other than the occasional kiss I would like to see of their relationship why is he falling for her do they spend time together baring their [...]

    26. Liss was a Scottish dancer professionally until an injury sidelined her Now she s content to run a Scottish memorabilia shop in Maine But when her old dance troupe comes through the area, she arranges to entertain some of her friends, to the distaste of new boyfriend Ben Then the manager of the troupe dies of an allergic reaction, although Liss has warned everyone connected with the catering of his allergies When her two best friends are suspected by the attractive State policeman, Liss feels im [...]

    27. Liss MacCrimmon invites her old dance troupe to Moosetookalook Anticipating good times of reminiscing and comradery, she instead finds dissent among the members When the company manager collapses and dies after eating a mushroom filled scone, Liss is determined to find out which cast members knew about his deadly allergy to mushrooms and, importantly, which one chose to act up on that knowledge.KD 10 14Check out this book today

    28. Read the first one and decided to take a chance on 2 Bad decision even if the setting was Maine Everything felt repetitive all from the how to write a cozy manual The killer was obvious early on I almost closed the book many times but kept reading because it was the last library book in the house Forgot that before my last two library hauls I had started re reading Tuchman s Stillwell in China book Saved from having having to make a mad dash to the library

    29. The injured Liss deals with the dance troop pretty well Being young and healthy despite loosing her career lets her take the change to being in the audience instead of performing on the stage calmly despite a few qualms After all the career was always of relatively short duration, as any professional performance based career must be, it just ended a bit sooner.I like the story well enough and would read by this author.
