American had been consumed in the flames of anarchy. When the smoke cleared from a terrifying civil war, the Commander in Chief had vanished, a new constitution had been born, and a power-mad President had soared to infamy, vowing to crush everything Ben Raines stood for. Her party's first mandate: dead or alive, she wants the legendary soldier brought down for crimes of treason-unless he disbands his forces, abandons his dream for a new nation, and swears allegiance to a country under siege. That'll happen- Like Hell. Raines has the men, the weapons, the ammo, and the guts to start his own bloody revolution. With the fate of this people and his homeland at stake, that's exactly what he has in mind. And as far as Raines is concerned, dead or alive isn't even an option.

Business is booming at the Scottish Emporium in Moosetookalook, Maine, and Liss MacCrimmon Ruskin couldn't be happier--or busier. A romantic getaway at a rustic Christmas tree farm is just what she needs. But the property's mysterious past has her feeling less than merry. . .Liss is surprised when an old friend from high school asks her to spend a week at the Christmas tree farm she recently inherited from a great-uncle. Realizing it would be the perfect chance for her and her husband Dan to get away from work, Liss happily accepts the offer and packs her bags for the tiny town of New Boston. Upon their arrival, Liss and Dan are greeted by a ramshackle farmhouse and unfriendly townsfolk. It's hardly the idyllic vacation locale they'd hoped for, especially when needling neighbors start raising questions about the farm's dark history. Who was the man whose body was found neatly netted in a shipment of Scotch pine? Why did the owner vanish into thin air? And why are the trees growing so close together, forming a maze more twisted than a Celtic knot? The rumors pile up faster than snowdrifts in a blizzard, and as Liss starts un-wrapping the truth, she discovers something even more scandalous than murder hiding beneath the town's humdrum façade. When a series of "accidents" strikes the farm, she'll have to spring into action faster than a Highland Fling to find the killer who's been lurking among the pines--before she ends up in a pine box herself. . .Praise for Kaitlyn Dunnett and her Liss MacCrimmon Mysteries!Vampires, Bones, And Treacle Scones"Spooky. . .Cozy fans are in for a Halloween treat." --Publishers WeeklyBagpipes, Brides, And Homicides"Fans of Scottish lore or bookstore mysteries like Lorna Barrett's and Carolyn Hart's will enjoy this one." --BooklistScotched"A satisfying entry in the series." --Booklist"This well-plotted novel provides pure entertainment." --RT Book ReviewsA Wee Christmas Homicide"The blend of romance and cozy mystery will please lovers of all things Scottish." --Kirkus ReviewsScone Cold Dead"Enjoyable. . .vivid descriptions of Maine during mud season and a quirky cast of characters lift this cozy." --Publishers WeeklyKilt Dead"If you have an affinity for all things Scottish, this is the book for you." --Deadly Pleasures
