Ancer who because f a career ending injury has taken ver her family s emporium in Moosetookalook a small picturesue town in Maine The series supporting cast includes Liss aunt Margaret MacCrimmon Boyd her high school friend Sherri who is with the local police department Sherri s fianc Pete also with the police department and Dan Ruskin Liss boyfriend This mystery takes place at the newly renovated Spruces wned by Dan s father and invested in by Liss aunt during a blizzard that strands the major participants at the inn with the murder victim all the suspects and a murderer and the power goes ut Okay the generator kicks in but they re conserving in case the storm lasts than a few days The mood is enhanced by unfinished rooms passages the cold the piles f snow and the storm Liss is an American f Scottish descent The Emporium stocks and sells Scottish items from clothing to knick knacks to specialty foods The Scottish theme plays into the story but nly in that the group trapped at the inn is the Scottish Heritage Appreciation Society Otherwise this hook allows the author to sprinkle her stories with bits Careless of Scottish history and folklore which I thoroughly enjoy by the way Without spoilers I have to say that this was not a great mystery I knew a few pages in who would be killed and how the major plotf the story would finally unfold Of course I didn t know specific details but the mystery itself was not very mysterious As for the best part Competing for the Cup of cozy mysteries the castf characters and their continuing interactions with Fat Land one another I was again disappointed When reading these mysteriesne has to like and care about the characters It s the nly reason to return book after book the mysteries are secondary For whatever reason I didn t really care for the characters and their sub stories I found them to be shallow ne dimensional and bland Liss is the pretty strong willed Low Life: Lures and Snares of Old New York one who doesn t like to be told what to do She jumps into things head first much to the dismayf Dan and Sherri Dan spends his time trying to keep Liss from dangerous situations while wondering how to take their relationship to the next level He begrudgingly admits Liss is a good investigator Sherri is a single parent who doubts her professional capabilities She doesn t like Liss getting involved with police business but values her insights Pete doesn t seem to have a personality His main role seems to be propping up Sherri It s not that they re not likeable I just found them uninteresting I never really got to know anything ther than their ne dimension I thought this might be because this was the fourth book in the series and if I had read all the books I would know the characters better Usually series mystery writers provide little background summaries Backstage Passes: Life on the Wild Side with David Bowie of earlier stories and recapsf the characters so if you join the series a few stories in you re not lost There was a bit f this f course but not a lot Liss had solved murders before Liss had been in dangerous situations and Dan didn t like that etc I even got confused when they mentioned a Gordon Tandy as someone Liss had been dating Elmer ongoing action for the past year I thought she was with Dan It turnsut Gordon who is in law enforcement is away for training The Red Stockade orn special assignment so doesn t play a part in this story Still it would have been nice to know that Liss had been dating both Gordon and Dan r that both had
