Hoping to dispel the late-winter gloom, innkeeper Judith McMonigle Flynn flies off for a much-needed vacation to Scotland. But soon she and prickly Cousin Renie find themselves marooned in an ancient castle perched high above the North Sea while their husbands go off on a fishing trip with the local police inspector. But when an explosion rocks Grimlock Castle, leaving a dead body in its fiery wake, an ever-curious Judith is once again up to her neck in a murder investigation. And the situation grows even murkier when the husbands and their Scotland Yard buddy go missing . . .

The hunt is on for a killer through the bonnie braes and sea-green glens of Scotland. And if Judith and Renie aren't careful, this could turn out to be their most dangerous—and last—Highland fling.

Looking forward to this one.

Journal Entry 4 by Strude at Vancouver, British Columbia Canada on Thursday, March 17, 2011
MS Daheim treats the rural Scots as normal people (with the exception of the suspects, who have the strangest habits and lives of any I've ever met.) I enjoyed the mechanics of the castle elevator and wonder if she saw something like that somewhere. Serena is just as violent and hungry as ever and has now acquired an injured shoulder, while Judith is still having far too much trouble with that hip. Barry's car was a hoot and I liked the pubs. I lost track of the relationships so the ending was a little difficult to follow. Someone should suggest to the publisher that the cover should have something to do with the plot. Other than the story being set in a Scottish castle there's no connection between the two.
