While on a transatlantic hunt for some authentic wares to sell at her shop, Peggy is looking to forget her troubles by digging through the hidden treasures of the Scottish Highlands. With so many enchanting items on sale, Peggy can't resist buying a beautiful, old tartan shawl. But once she wraps it around her shoulders, she discovers that her purchase comes with a hidden fee: the specter of a 14th-century Scotsman.
Unsure if her Highland fling was real or a product of an overactive imagination, Peggy returns home to Vermont - only to find the dead body of her ex-boyfriend on the floor of her shop. When the police chief arrests Peggy's cousin based on some incriminating evidence, Peggy decides to ask her haunting Scottish companion to help figure out who really committed the crime - before anyone else gets kilt.

I thought this was a really sweet little story with fun and interesting characters. I loved the Scottish Ghost bit too.
The characters were really endearing. There's a hint of romance too, and I just loved the settings: both small town USA, and small town Scotland.
Probably Macbeth. I'm a sucker for Scottish accents.
This is a feel good mystery...so even though there is a death, it's the deeper mystery and characters that pull you in. A great listen and safe enough to listen to if there are kids around. I'll come back to this series. I'd love to see what happens next.
I got to chapter 13 and had to call it quits. The characters are flat and the plot doesn't make sense. I skipped many times trying to fing something interesting but never did. I finally gave up and returned it.
