I have enjoyed every book in this series so far. As an avid mystery fan I do not like when a book goes into detail of the characters sex lives. Romance is good,but not if it detracts from the mystery and suspense. I find that these books balance it nicely. The heroine has weaknesses that make her more believable. I would recommend this series.

I too liked the first book "Kilt Dead". This second one was too contrived for me and a bit of a three-ring circus. I, and any other regular mystery reader, figured out who did it early on, yet Liss never even seemed to suspect that person. This is a disappointment after the first book. sigh...

I was really looking forward to reading this since I really enjoyed the first one. But this one.....not so much. The story just drags along and it seems more about the the non-romance than it does about the mystery.

An action-packed series, with some male interest in the main character.
