Publisher's Summary

Abigail Logan never expected to inherit a whisky distillery in the Scottish Highlands. But in the first novel of an engaging new series blending fine spirits with chilling mystery, Abi finds that there are secrets lurking in the misty glens that some will go to any lengths to protect...even murder.

When Abi inherits her uncle's quaint and storied single malt distillery, she finds herself immersed in a competitive high-stakes business that elicits deep passions and prejudices. An award-winning photojournalist, Abi has no trouble capturing the perfect shot - but making the perfect shot is another matter. When she starts to receive disturbing, anonymous threats, it's clear that someone wants her out of the picture. But Abi's never been one to back down from a fight.

Arriving on the scene with her whisky-loving best friend, Patrick, and an oversized wheaten terrier named Liam, Abi seems to put everyone in the bucolic village on edge - especially her dour but disturbingly attractive head distiller. Acts of sabotage and increasingly personal threats against Abi make it clear that she is not welcome. When one of Abi's new employees is found floating face down in a vat of whisky, Abi is determined to use her skills as an investigative journalist to identify the cold-blooded killer and dispense a dram of justice before he strikes again. But distilling truth from lies is tricky, especially when everyone seems to have something to hide.

    "You will need a lot of whiskey to make it through"

    Oh so boring....premise seemed ok and it's always fun to potentially learn something along the way. I persisted for more than half the book but had to give up. Uninteresting characters, endless tedious discussions of this or that suspicion, no actual plot, and the narrator is a disaster on top of it. Her men all sound like they are cats trying to vomit out a hair ball. And I'm pretty sure those accents are way off.

    "Better than I Thought It Be"

    I was looking for an easy listening book when I found Single Malt Murder. A rather uncomplicated story set in the highlands of Scotland. But a good murder mystery with an unexpected suspect in the crime.

    "Great mystery plot, but main character annoying"

    This mystery has so much going for it. Great plot, an interesting approach to motive and keeps the reader intrigued all the way through. However, the main character makes choices that are completely unbelievable and seems rather dense at points. If someone is threatening you, you tell the police right away. If someone is leaving threatening messages at your home, you'd stay somewhere else and set up a hidden camera to figure out who it is. That was frustrating because I wanted to like the book much more.

    "Made me want to murder the protagonist."

    The whiskey business part is interesting. The part where the main character who is supposedly smart makes every foolish decision possible to try to get killed made me want to send her a bottle of bleach with a note saying, "bleach from an enemy, please drink entire bottle". And then it's worth noting that our sleuth doesn't solve the case.

    "Whiskey !"

    Since I don't drink anything stronger then beer this was a pleasant journey into a new world and I learned something about whiskey. The characters and story were entertaining. Good work.

    "Excellent"
    Any additional comments?

    This book is a refreshing change of pace. The characters come alive with Gemma's narration. I can't wait for the next installment in the series. In fact, I almost wish I had waited until another book was available...Nah

    "Great new series"

    Melina Mullet has crafted a wonderful new series. The characters are well developed. Gemma Dawson did a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life. I highly recommend this series.
