Publisher's Summary

Photojournalist by trade, distillery owner by blood, and amateur sleuth by necessity, Abigail Logan learns that murder can't stay bottled up forever in this charming Whisky Business Mystery.

It's been three months since Abi Logan last checked in on Abbey Glen, the celebrated whisky distillery she inherited. With her oversize wheaten terrier, Liam, by her side, Abi returns to the quaint Scottish village of Balfour. But her relaxing Highland homecoming takes a stressful turn when she unearths an unseemly bit of village history, welcomes a group of Japanese whisky enthusiasts, and becomes shepherdess to an unexpected flock of sheep - all within the first 24 hours. Still, nothing's more stressful than murder....

Local celebrity Rory Hendricks is the hotheaded, hard-rocking former frontman of the Rebels - and Abi's girlhood crush. After meeting him in person, Abi can't say no to anything he asks, like photographing his upcoming show...or figuring out who's trying to kill him. Turns out someone's been bumping off his old bandmates, with the drummer dead under mysterious circumstances and the keyboardist in a coma following a hit-and-run. Now a series of threatening messages leads Rory to think he's next on the chopping block. And the band has a devil's share of broken hearts and bitter disputes in their past, leaving Abi a huge batch of suspects to sift through - all before the killer takes another shot.

Flawless

I love the cadence of the narration of this book. There are a variety of accents, dialects, and backgrounds among the characters and the narrator has aced what must have been a challenging assignment. The story is sound and well-written. In particular, the main character makes full use of the English language without apology as one would expect from an educated professional. I wish this was more common and I felt it contributed to establishing the depth and identity of the character.

Flocks, Old Rockers, Bones and Blood

My, oh, My! I sure do hope that this series continues! Book two is just whetting my appetite! Distillery owner (and photo journalist), Abi Logan has just returned home to Balfour, Scotland after a three month assignment. Her first day back, bones are found on her property, she rescues eight sheep, and agrees (though reluctantly) to host a group of Japanese whisky enthusiasts at Abbey Glen distillery. Her next surprise is a meeting with an old rocker secluded on the adjoining property, who hires her to photograph his comeback concert. How do all these things tie in together? Well, in the most cozy and clever way imaginable . . . historical findings, going back to the Jacobites, the British taxation of whisky which led to illegal production in remote areas of Scotland, and many bloody battles are revealed . . . I SO want to learn and hear more about this . . . the peaceful grazing sheep, Liam, Abi's wheaten terrier, the crazy rantings of hot-headed old rocker, Rory Hendricks, and Abi on the search for the killer of those associated with the old band . . . and then there's Grant, co-owner of the distillery, pulled by the heels into hosting the reception for the visiting Japanese whiskey enthusiasts and playing host to Rory's twenty-something daughter, Summer . . . causing sparks to fly . . . I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the ins and outs of this tale . . . it is not smutty, although the author could've chosen to take it there, she didn't . . . it has the right amount of everything . . . mystery, history, family, bonds, and just a tad of romance . . . and the ending is perfect . . . and just like the local police, I did not have it figured out . . .

Fun read, great series

I liked this as much as first book. Abi Logan is a wonderful, fun, artfully crafted character, and Gemma Dawson's performance does her justice.
I can't wait for for the next book. I might even have to give whisky another try...

Fun series!

What did you like best about this story?

I thought this second book was a fun listen. I'll be waiting for the next book! I think that the author could back off a little on the absolute, constant stubbornness of Abi and make Grant a bit more 3 dimensional.

A good mystery

This book starts out a bit slow (just like the first book) but it pulls you in and keeps you guessing and it’s hard to stop the book. I also love the Scottish history. I highly recommended both books in the series.

Excellent

Melinda Mullett and Gemma Dawson have done it again. This is by far one of the best cozy mysteries I have read all year. I highly recommend this audiobook.

Not as good as the first one

Although this was still a great listen that captured my attention it wasn’t nearly as good as the first one. One, the plot of an old rocker—meh. Two, the lack of Grant, ugh. And three, random sheep and side stories, did I miss the significance of these? Still worth a listen and as always, the narrator was superb!
