Publisher's Summary

No good deed goes unpunished in the Whisky Business cozy mystery series as distillery owner Abigail Logan uncovers dark secrets - and murder - at a local charity.  

Photojournalist Abi Logan is finally ready to put her hectic career on hold and set down roots in the heart of the Scottish countryside. Studying the business and art of distilling whisky at Abbey Glen and volunteering at the Shepherd’s Rest women’s shelter in her spare time seem a surefire way to find the peace and stability she craves. It’s also the logical way to take her mind off her personal life. Abi’s business partner, Grant MacEwan, is facing a career-threatening disability, and as much as Abi longs to be there for him, he seems to prefer the company of a rival.  

But as Abi becomes more involved with Shepherd’s Rest, she discovers that their refuge is elusive. When the shelter is rocked by a murder/suicide, Abi is outraged by the police’s lack of attention to these already marginalized women. Increasingly confident in her own skills as an investigator, Abi steps in to find out what the police will not: Who left one young woman dead and another missing. But when more deadly deeds come to light, Abi must race to unravel the connections between the shelter’s benefactors and the women they have pledged to protect - and expose the killer before he strikes again.

Another solid installment in an enjoyable series...

I took a shot on the first book in this series and have enjoyed each one so far, including this latest installment. I am always looking for writers who can tell a good story that adults will enjoy without shocking the ears with vulgar language (you know - just to “be real”). Also, I enjoy narrators who have real talent and are easy to listen to. This series has both, and I am already looking forward to the next book.

Excellent addition to the series

Melinda Mullet has crafted another excellent addition to the Whiskey Business series. The characters are well developed and seem mote like friends rather than characters in a book. Nice mystery with plenty of twists. Gemma Dawson gave a nice performance. I look forward to the next book.

Needed a little extra whiskey to get through this

I really liked the first two in this series so pre-ordered this book and listened to it but this veered more into a murder mystery solving story than the other two where I got swept into the romantic tension and being at the distillery. I guess the story has to evolve but after waiting, I missed a lot of the Grant-Abi tension and the descriptions of whiskey and being at the Glen. All in all it was ok and set up for more Grant-Abi in the next installment.

My favorite of the series.

This book is my favorite one of the series. Same great characters, but the situation was a bit of a surprise. Picking up where they left off, we find out what happens with her love interest. Not too heavy. Great book for a road trip. I can’t wait for the next book.
