In Moosetookalook, Maine the Spruces Hotel hosts the First Annual Maine-ly Cozy Con for mystery fans who prefer limited violence and no graphic sex.  The headline at the May gala is actress turned mystery writer Yvonne Quinlan.  Also attending is odious blogger J. Nedlinger, who described the actress’ book as trash to be tossed out.  The town’s storekeepers look forward to the gala as they expect plenty of cozy aficionados will buy items from shops such as at Liss MacCrimmon’s everything plaid Scottish Emporium.


However, the Con turns graphically ugly when Nedlinger falls off Lover’s Leap cliff.  While no one liked the vicious unscrupulous blogger, everyone assumes it was a horrible accident.  However, Liss reconsiders that premise when she realizes how many people celebrate the death of J. Nedlinger.  When another victim surfaces, Liss and her town cohorts investigate who is murdering the Con.


Scotched is an engaging MacCrimmon amateur sleuth as the heroine and her BFFs look into the homicides.  The background of a cozy Con makes for a fun retinue as does springtime in Maine.  Cozy fans will enjoy attending the First Annual Maine-ly Cozy Con.
