Description

Dr. Emilia McRoy is back on the case in the second book in the Scottish Isle mystery series, perfect for fans of Sheila Connolly and Charlene O’Connor.
Something old, something new, something borrowed and someone’s blue…


Finally feeling like Sea Isle, Scotland is becoming her new home, American doctor Emilia McRoy is delighted when she is invited to a wedding at Morrigan's Castle. Her friends have warned her that it's a three-day party and it's bound to get wild, not to mention the impending snowstorm. Constable Ewan Campbell, owner of the castle, ensures their safety with the blizzard. What he didn’t ensure, is that all of his guests would survive the night alive. When Emilia explores the impressive castle, she finds a dead man in one of the turrets.
 The snowstorm hits and the local police can’t reach the castle until it lets up. With no one able to leave, the family insists they carry on with the wedding, which makes Emilia's job as the coroner a bit easier—the suspects are in one place­––and complicated because the killer has Emilia in his sights. The fact no one claims to know the victim isn't helping. Why would someone no one knows be murdered at a castle in the middle of nowhere?
It’s up to Emilia to uncover the mystery who the victim is, so the killer doesn’t get away Scot free.

        November 15, 2023
        A Scottish wedding is plagued by snow and murder. Dr. Emilia McRoy left the pressure cooker atmosphere of a Seattle ER for Sea Isle, Scotland, and in a short time made many friends and helped solve a murder. Now her friend Angie is getting married in a castle belonging to Ewan Campbell, laird, mayor, and constable of Sea Isle, who hired Emilia as coroner but has a fraught relationship with her. Ewan drives Emilia, her friend Mara, and some medical supplies Emilia hopes will not be needed through heavy snow to the destination wedding, which is not without problems. The groom's father is against the marriage, and Angie's father's current wife and all his exes are in attendance. While taking a break, Emilia witnesses something going on in the turret that turns out to be a murder. Since her office is already snowed in, it's up to her, Ewan, and his men to investigate. Back in her room, Mara feels sick, perhaps from overindulging. But when Emilia and her clever assistant, Abigail, do an autopsy on the dead man, her diagnosis is poison, and she suspects that Mara and Angie may be suffering from the same toxin. As the wedding events continue, the dead man is identified as Robbie, Angie's former boyfriend and the groom's estranged friend. Although they have indeed been poisoned by antifreeze, Emilia's strategy of pushing lots of fluids on her headachy friends has flushed most of the toxins from their systems. Now Emilia and Ewan must race to identify a killer from among the ill-assorted and feuding groups of wedding guests. Plenty of suspects in a locked-castle mystery in which whisky flows and secrets come to light.

        November 27, 2023
        In Connelly’s diverting second whodunit with Dr. Emilia “Em” McRoy (after An American in Scotland), the American expat is delighted to accept an invitation to her friend Angie’s wedding at a remote Scottish castle owned by constable Ewan Campbell. Soon after she arrives, a blizzard knocks out all modes of communication, isolating the wedding party. While wandering through the castle’s turret, Em stumbles across a body: the bride’s abusive ex, who was not invited to the festivities and hasn’t been in touch with anyone in the family for years. After several more suspicious accidents and close calls, Em realizes she and the rest of the wedding party have been trapped with a killer. With no way out of the snowbound castle, and no certainty about who to trust, she teams up with Ewan to investigate. While there are a few too many repetitive conversations and instances of creeping through dark hallways alone, Connelly provides memorable characters, an immersive setting, and an exciting enough mystery to solve. It’s an enjoyable puzzle. Agent: Jill Marsal, Marsal Lyon Literary.
