"An enjoyable cozy from start to finish."
--Publishers Weekly The old Chadwick mansion on the edge of Moosetookalook, Maine, has been shrouded in mystery for generations. But when Scottish Emporium owner Liss MacCrimmon uncovers a treasure map at the mansion's estate sale, she never expected her curiosity would lead to a dead body. It's clear Liss isn't alone on this treasure hunt. With her life in real peril and the map at risk of being stolen, she launches into full-scale investigation mode. But as she deciphers clues and inches toward the dangerous culprit, Liss quickly realizes she's only a step away from ending up like the Chadwick clan--permanently wiped out. "Full of local color, suspicious characters, and adorable fur-babies. What's not to like?"
--Kirkus Reviews on The Scottie Barked at Midnight

Review quote

Praise for Kaitlyn Dunnett's X MARKS THE SCOT:

"A mysterious dark-haired stranger, a treasure map, and a murder present yet another case for a durable amateur sleuth... Plenty of small-town atmosphere and deliciously dubious suspects lift this entry above the series average."- Kirkus Reviews

"Well-paced...Dunnett plays fair with her reader, dropping clues to the killer's identity along the way to the surprising denouement." - Publishers Weekly
