Tis the season to be jolly, but in Moosetookalook, Maine, Christmas cheer is in short supply due to a snowless winter that's keeping skiers and shoppers at a distance. Fortunately, Liss MacCrimmon of the Scottish Emporium has a plan. . .Liss's brainstorm focuses on Tiny Teddies, the new "hot" toy of the season. Every store across the country is out of stock--except a few wee establishments in good ol' Moosetookalook. The first sign of something amiss occurs when the last Tiny Teddy is summarily executed: shot through the heart in the display window of greedy toy store owner Gavin Thorne. But the Teddy's demise is just a precursor to the eerily similar murder of Gavin himself. . .Now, with the Twelve (or, in Scots terms, the Daft) Days of Christmas rapidly approaching, Liss has a plate full of things worse than haggis to contend with, starting with a stockroom packed with poultry (don't ask), and ending with a killer who'd like to see Liss's goose well and fully cooked. . ."A picturesque location, a bit of romance, some suspense, and a cast of appealingly quirky characters." --Booklist"The blend of romance and cozy mystery will please lovers of all things Scottish."--Kirkus Reviews "Perfect for the holiday season."--Romantic Times

I've become a huge fan of this series and every book I read just gets better.
In this book, Christmas is coming and Liss is busy preparing for the 12 Days of Christmas pageant.
It's during this time that a hot commodity is making the merchants of Moosetookalook a bit frantic. It seems that Tiny Teddies are all the rage and some local merchants will do anything to get them, even murder.
Enjoy the holidays with all the Moosetookalook residents, you will be glad you did.

This book was centered around all the hussle and bussle of Christmas, particularly obtaining the "hottest" toy of the year. The book is easy to follow. I was able to put it down (I read another short book I was interested in). But when I picked it back up, I could easily remember the story line and finish the book. Some reviewers claim that parts of the book aren't realistic. I understand fiction has to be somewhat realistic to be credible, but, really, it is fiction. This is not your normal sweet, gooey, Christmas novel. But I did enjoy it.

I loved this book, delightful read, hid the murder till almost the end. The flovor of the Scottish tinged Northeast came through with every well turned phrase of this book. And the frenzy of avid collectors was extermly well dipicted.
This is my first book by Ms. Kaitlyn Dunnett, but be assured I will be checking out her back list, her style is an easy read and transfers her readers to that special place of 'yes, this could very well be a small town in Main and these could very well be real people I might meet if I go for a skiing vacation.
another good installment in the Liss MacCrimmon series!
