Dressed to Kilt (Scottish Highlands #3) by Hannah Reed

Time to revisit a series we talked about this time last year. Dressed to Kilt (Scottish Highlands #3) by Hannah Reed, just landed on my reading stack. You may recall I was drawn to this one by the title of part two and the yarn connection. This part has no yarn connection, but it does have the same awesome characters as the past parts.

From the back of the book:

The national bestselling author of Hooked on Ewe is back with a mysterious murder that leaves the Scottish village of Glenkillen shaken and stirred...

Winter is leaving the residents of Glenkillen snowbound, but Eden isn’t about to let the weather dampen her spirits. With only a little time left in Scotland, she’s determined to make the most of it—starting with attending a fancy whisky tasting with local looker Leith Cameron. But her classy date turns into a major party foul after a woman is found drowned in one of the vats of alcohol.

Eden immediately steps in as a Special Constable to help solve the case, but her investigation turns sour when she realizes that the killer could be somehow connected to her own Scottish heritage. Now, in order to find the proof she needs to put the murderer behind bars, she’ll have to take a shot at unearthing her family’s past—before she herself winds up buried.

My thoughts:

It was a real joy to revisit these likable characters, I really did love Eden. If you haven't read any of the other parts you can easily pick up here. The setting is beautiful and has rich descriptions that make it like a little trip to Scotland. I loved how this part took a closer look at her heritage, it was deeply interesting.

The mystery was well paced and plotted and so easy to fall into. If not for the distracting dialect this would have been a one night read. I do hope in future parts we are trusted to know they speak with a dialect, as I find the misspelled words a distraction that pull me from the story. Even with that caveat I look forward to seeing the next installment and spending more time with Eden and the Constable.
