Cookies & Kilts Mysteries
An amateur sleuth series set in the small Missouri town of Beaudin Trace, where 40 year-old Kate Dunbar, owner of Biscuits With a Brogue pet food bakery, gets involved with mysteries.
Shortbread And Dead
It’s two weeks before Christmas. In the small Missouri town of Beaudin Trace, the holiday spirit is revving up: shops are adorned in seasonal decorations and the annual Winter Scavenger Hunt is in full swing. But when the winner of the town’s winter scavenger hunt is found murdered, bakery shop owner Kate Dunbar investigates to save her business from crumbling; but who will save her from the killer?
A Trifling Murder
Not another death in Beaudin Trace. Not at the Robert Burns Birthday Celebration. The bakery will never survive this one... It was all Kate could think of while the bagpipes blared and the caterers served up the haggis, neeps and trifle. I'll never survive, either, not with my knife as the murder weapon. But how can I convince anyone I'm innocent? The fight to clear herself from the suspicion of murder isn't as smooth as Scotch whisky, however. But she finds her help in an unlikely source: a slightly nutty song writer and his Scottie dog. The help is comforting. Afterall, murder is no trifling matter.
A Drizzle of Trouble
Nero may have fiddled while Rome burned, but at least he wasn't murdered while playing his harp. At any rate, that's the police conjecture when the mayor of Beaudin Trace, Missouri is found dead in his living room, lying next to his beloved instrument.
The death produces a quartet of angry suspects, all with scores to settle with the overbearing mayor. Was one of them tired of the way he was conducting town business, or was there a different motive?
To prove her friends innocent, bakery shop owner Kate Dunbar investigates. But trouble drizzles down like rain, threatening to wash out her work. Luckily for her, she's helped by two cats who seem to lap up the problem and help solve the case without twitching a whisker.
