It’s springtime in Silver Hollow, Michigan, and Sasha is looking forward to the village’s inaugural Highland Fling weekend. Plans are underway for a Kilted 5K, athletic competitions, dancing, live music, and even a Hurl-the-Haggis contest. Meanwhile, Sasha’s staff is busy crafting custom teddy bears in kilts for the Silver Bear Shop’s vendor booth. But trouble’s brewing behind the scenes, as the obnoxious Teddy Hartman, former owner of a rival teddy bear company, sows seeds of discord about town, targeting Sasha’s family and their business.
Things go from plaid to worse when—just a week before the festival kicks-off—the disgruntled gossip is found murdered with an ax buried in his back. Sasha’s dad is arrested, since he’s a champion ax-thrower. But she doesn’t give a dram what it looks like—Sasha knows that despite the old business rivalry with Hartman, her father is innocent. So with a spot of help from her friends, Sasha must bag the real killer before her first Fling also becomes her last.
Review – 3.5 out of 5 stars
As much as I love this series and I love things about Scotland, including Highland Games, this book just wasn’t as good as others in the series in my opinion. It was still GOOD, but I felt it bogged down in the middle. It was well written other than the boggy parts.
I still love the characters. I’m excited for Sasha and Jay as they continue their relationship and life together. I love Sasha’s family and friends. I love the setting as I live near Ann Arbor and this city is kind of the combination of several cities in the area.
I still recommend this series and this installment was GOOD. I just didn’t think it was as great as some of the previous installments. It would help if you read the series from the beginning, but it’s not absolutely necessary. You can read this book as a stand-alone.
