When Abi inherits her uncle’s quaint and storied single malt distillery, she finds herself immersed in a competitive high-stakes business that elicits deep passions and prejudices. An award-winning photojournalist, Abi has no trouble capturing the perfect shot—but making the perfect shot is another matter. When she starts to receive disturbing, anonymous threats, it’s clear that someone wants her out of the picture. But Abi’s never been one to back down from a fight.
Arriving on the scene with her whisky-loving best friend, Patrick, and an oversized wheaten terrier named Liam, Abi seems to put everyone in the bucolic village on edge—especially her dour but disturbingly attractive head distiller. Acts of sabotage and increasingly personal threats against Abi make it clear that she is not welcome. When one of Abi’s new employees is found floating facedown in a vat of whisky, Abi is determined to use her skills as an investigative journalist to identify the cold-blooded killer and dispense a dram of justice before he strikes again. But distilling truth from lies is tricky, especially when everyone seems to have something to hide.
Abigail Logan has inherited Abbey Glen, a single malt whisky distillery in the Scottish Highlands. She had no clue what she would do and since losing her Uncle Ben that left it to her she was devastated.
Just when she is taking off work to sort things out she starts to receive threats they get worse as she carries out her Uncles’s wishes.
A young mad is found floating in a vat of whisky and with her best friend Patrick and her dog Liam she sets out to find out what happened and by whom.
This is the first book in the Whisky Business series and by a new to me author Melinda Mulllet. I was very impressed with her writing and the character development. With twists and different characters the reader will be kept guessing until the end of who did it. A real page turner.
