About Vampires, Bones and Treacle Scones: Vampires, Bones, and Treacle Scones, the seventh Liss MacCrimmon Scottish-American Heritage Mystery, takes place at Halloween in Moosetookalook, Maine. In this adventure, newlywed Liss and her friends are trying to turn an abandoned house into a “haunted mansion” as a fundraiser.  Minor mishaps and objects that mysteriously vanish only to reappear somewhere else seem like harmless pranks at first, but the game turns deadly when a skeleton Liss acquires for a special effect is replaced by the very real, very dead body of someone she knows.

The Liss MacCrimmon Scottish-American Heritage Mysteries include Kilt Dead, Scone Cold Dead, A Wee Christmas Homicide, The Corpse Wore TartanScotched, Bagpipes, Brides, and Homicides, and Vampires, Bones, and Treacle Scones.

About Royal Inheritance:  Audrey Malte is illegitimate, though her beloved father—tailor to King Henry VIII—prefers to call her “merry-begot,” saying there was much joy in her making.  Then Audrey visits the royal court with her father, and the whispers start about Audrey’s distinctive Tudor-red hair and the kindness that the king shows her.  Did dashing Henry perhaps ask Malte to raise a royal love child?  The king’s favor, however, brings Audrey constraint as well as opportunity.  Though she holds tender feelings for her handsome music tutor, John Harington, the king is pressuring her to marry into the family of treacherous, land-hungry Sir Richard Southwell.  Audrey determines to learn the truth about her birth at last.  The answer may give her the freedom to give her heart as she chooses . . . or it could ensnare her deeper in an enemy’s ruthless scheme.

About the Author: Kaitlyn Dunnett (aka Kathy Lynn Emerson) writes the Liss MacCrimmon Scottish-American Heritage Mysteries set in Moosetookalook, Maine.  As Kathy Lynn Emerson, she wrote the Face Down Mysteries featuring 16th century gentlewoman, herbalist and sleuth Susanna Appleton and the Diana Spaulding 1888 Quartet, featuring an intrepid scandal sheet reporter and a physician who hails from Bangor, Maine.  She also wrote the Agatha-award-winning nonfiction How to Write Killer Historical Mysteries: The Art and Adventure of Sleuthing Through the Past.  Kathy/Kaitlyn lives on a Christmas tree farm in the Western Maine mountains with her husband and three cats.
