Bagpipes, Brides, and Homicides

Kaitlyn Dunnett. Kensington, $23 (288p) ISBN 978-0-7582-7265-2
The murder of a controversial history professor, Alfred Leon Palsgrave, complicates Liss MacCrimmon’s wedding preparations in Dunnett’s exciting sixth cozy set in Moosetookalook, Maine (after 2011’s Scotched). Since the chief suspect in doing in Palsgrave with a reproduction broadsword is Liss’s father, Liss has no choice but to investigate. With her marriage (scheduled the same weekend as the Western Maine Highland Games) and honeymoon in Scotland only months away, Liss is soon racing the clock to clear her father’s name while trying to keep her overbearing mother from wresting control of her big day. As Liss gets closer to the real killer, she discovers that Palsgrave’s theories about an obscure 15th-century Scottish explorer may have had something to do with the professor’s demise. Filled with gems of Scottish history and culture, this intelligent entry will appeal to newcomers and established fans alike. Agent, Christina Hogrebe, the Jane Rotrosen Agency. (Aug.)
