She’s content, not bored. And if she keeps repeating that to herself, one day it might just be true. Everything changes one snowy afternoon, when a handsome stranger takes up residence next door.

Before she can complain too much, Valley Springs is rocked by an unexpected murder of a local man.All eyes turn to Clary’s bookstore cafe when it’s revealed that lethal brownies were the murder weapon.

'It's got two things that everyone likes: Christmas and Murder.' - Jimmy Fallon 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 Weekly Bagpipes, Brides, And Homicides 'Fans of Scottish lore or bookstore mysteries like Lorna Barrett's and Carolyn Hart's will enjoy this one.' --Booklist Scotched 'A satisfying entry in the series.' --Booklist 'This well-plotted novel provides pure entertainment.' --RT Book Reviews A Wee Christmas Homicide 'The blend of romance and cozy mystery will please lovers of all things Scottish.' --Kirkus Reviews Scone Cold Dead 'Enjoyable. . .vivid descriptions of Maine during mud season and a quirky cast of characters lift this cozy.' --Publishers Weekly Kilt Dead 'If you have an affinity for all things Scottish, this is the book for you.' --Deadly Pleasures

Ten Lords A-Leaping

The delightful Father Tom Christmas returns, and the cozy hamlet of Thornford Regis comes to life, in C. C. Benison's witty, beautifully written series that is 'a must-read for lovers of classic English mysteries' (Kirkus Reviews). Although Father Tom Christmas serves his little church in enchanting Thornford Regis with a glad and faithful heart, he never expects to find himself skydiving to raise money for it. Nor, safely back on the ground, to see two of the other divers leap from the plane, then tangle in a midair punch-up and begin falling to the earth. To say that there is tension between the men in question-Oliver, the 7th Marquess of Morborne, and his brother-in-law Hector, the 10th Earl of Fairhaven-would be an understatement. But the trouble among this ancient landed family really began a generation ago, when a marquess divorced his first spouse to marry his brother's wife, fathering in his two marriages a viper's nest of arrogant young aristocrats. Now they have all turned up for the show to witness this shocking event in the sky. Thankfully the men land safely, but death will not be slighted. Much to Father Tom's dismay, he later discovers Lord Morborne lying deceased on castle grounds. Rumors of bigamy, art forgeries, and upstairs/downstairs intrigue fly. So do whispers of unvicarly behavior between Tom and Oliver's beautiful half-sister, Lady Lucinda. In fact, the vicar may be headed for a very hard landing of his own. C. C. Benison gives a virtuoso performance in this gripping new puzzle, a compelling and wise holiday mystery with the irresistible allure of hot tea and warm scones on a cold winter's day. Praise for C. C. Benison's Father Christmas mysteries Ten Lords A-Leaping 'A strong mystery reminiscent of P. D. James, with many well-developed characters, local color and a sensitive, intelligent investigator.'-Kirkus Reviews 'An affable lead with a sympathetic backstory anchors Benison's carefully crafted third Father Christmas mystery. . . . Readers will hope that Christmas will keeping detecting past the partridge-in-a-pear-tree volume.'-Publishers Weekly 'This leisurely paced, English-country-house mystery has multiple plotlines and plot twists as Tom finds a long-lost relative of a friend and solves several mysteries.'-Booklist Eleven Pipers Piping 'Benison uses the claustrophobia of village life to great effect, making the series a psychologically astute pleasure for fans of traditional cozies.'-The Washington Post 'Smashingly clever . . . Readers will be crazy about this vicar.'-Library Journal 'A great whodunit in the best British tradition.'-The Globe and Mail Twelve Drummers Drumming 'A crime novel that Agatha Christie might have been justly proud to claim as her own.'-Margaret Maron 'Benison does an admirable job balancing humor with suspense. . . . Father Christmas's first case leaves you eager for his next.'-The Wall Street Journal 'Splendid . . . an intelligent and empathic protagonist and skillful prose make this a winner.'-Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Notorious Murders of the Twentieth Century
8,40 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The word 'murder' has always attracted widespread local and national media coverage. Once known, the story becomes the subject of discussion in a variety of places throughout the land. Some grisly tales become part of a culture that lives on for generations, whilst others, even by some of the worst serial killers, are soon forgotten. In this book experienced crime historian Stephen Wade has gathered together a collection of murders covering the entire twentieth century. Although famous in their own day, most are now forgotten by the general public, apart from the best true crime enthusiasts. The first conviction for fingerprint evidence, the last hanging in England and murderous husbands and wives are included; but there are also mysteries, unsolved killings and peculiar confessions. Meet the man who poisoned his rival's scones, a wrongful arrest and the acquittal of a good wife who shot her man dead. There are even tales from the Isle of Man, whose legislators continued to issue death penalties in the 1990s.
