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.

I CANNOT SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS

ANOTHER WINNER! AS ALWAYS, THE STORYLINE WAS INTRIGUING, AND FINALLY PROGRESS ON THE RELATIONSHIP FRONT. OKAY, SO PART OF MY GETTING TO KNOW THE CHARACTERS IS AN INTEREST IN THE PROTAGONISTS' PERSONAL LIVES. SO SUE ME! HA, THIS SERIES IS ENTERTAINING, INTELLIGENT, AND INCLUDES JUST ENOUGH FUN.

Died in the Wool

Great read, I just love this series. Once again Abbey gets herself in the thick of it and dragged in others with her.

Glad to see the romance budding again. Looking forward to next book in the series.

Excellent narration by Gemma Dawson, as usual.

I would highly recommend this book and series .

Excellent book and series

I have thoroughly enjoyed the latest instalment in the Whisky Business Mystery series.
The book begins several weeks after where deadly dram left off. Abi gets involved with a women’s shelter after being introduced by the local vicar. After one of the residents is found dead and another soon goes missing, Abi tries to help where the police can’t.
A good whodunnit, with several suspects that keep you guessing till the end.
The series regulars like Patrick, Grant, Hunter and even Cam and their lives flesh the story (and series as a whole) out nicely and balance Abi out. I can’t wait to read the next one!

Lovely cozy mystery

I really enjoy the Whiskey Business series. These gentle mysteries are a lovely companion when I am folding clothes or in the bath. I enjoy our heroine and the little hints of romance. It’s always easy to figure out who did it and why before the reveal, but that’s ok. I enjoy the narrator’s voice and style and would recommend this series to anyone who enjoys a gentle cozy mystery set in the UK.

The series is getting boring.

Photographer, Whiskey Distillery Owner, Investigator, Social Worker, Geriatric Sheep Minder...

The number of professions Abby thinks she's skilled at are far more than she actually is. She's been around a few murders and believes she can investigate them better than the police. She's far more confident in her abilites than she should be. It's obvious the police see her as nothing more than an annoyance when she tells them about an assault against her and they basically tell her she deserved it.

Abby is becoming a bossy, overly confident know it all and it's become boring.

not as good as the others

I loved the other books but this one, for some reason, struggled to keep my interest.

Dirty Deeds in High Places

Wow! This is my favorite so far in the series. I am no stranger to the secrets and dirty tricks of board members of nonprofits who are supposed to be serving, whether in the UK or USA. This story definitely hit a chord with me. As Abi Logan takes on the volunteer position of board member at the Shepherd’s Rest, a home for battered women, she turns out to be a little more than the crooked board bargained for. A woman of means, yes, a self-centered, money hungry person, no. Not to be swayed into voting to displace the women who had already suffered abuse, Abi is soon thrown into a murder investigation when Jenny, one of the women at the shelter is found dead. Before long another woman goes missing, leaving a young daughter behind to be looked after. At the end of the previous book, Grant MacEwan, Abi’s business partner and master distiller at Abbey Glen, had suffered a debilitating injury that had left him unable to work. His ex-fiancée, Brenna swooped in to console (and coddle) him, making for a “right mess”. As Abi works on the problems at Shepherd’s Rest, she also begins to think outside the box and tries to get Grant out of his depression and back into the distillery in whatever way she can. Excellent tale of intrigue, investigation, and the conclusion is the best ever!
