An antiques shop owner in the Scottish Highlands becomes embroiled in a mystery after a potential customer is murdered.
Trading the urban pace of Edinburgh for a tiny village overlooking a breathtaking blue loch was a great move for budding photographer Sylvie Carmichael and her artist husband, Seamus—until a dangerous crime obscures the view . . .
Sylvie’s bucolic life along the heather-covered moors of the Highlands is a world away from the hectic energy of the city. But then a London buyer is killed after purchasing a long-lost Scottish masterpiece from Seamus’s gallery—and the painting vanishes. As suspicion clouds their new life, and their relationship, Sylvie’s search for answers plunges her into an unsolved mystery dating back to Cromwellian Scotland through World War I and beyond. And as she moves closer to the truth, Sylvie is targeted by a murderer who’s after a treasure within a treasure that could rewrite history . . . and her own future.
Praise for Highland Peril“History and locale come alive in this extremely entertaining novel, which is a standout as it features Scotland’s ancient castles, chilly weather, and extraordinary culture. This is escapism at its best, as it is a compelling mystery that whisks readers away to a land as beautiful as it is rich with intrigue.” —Kings River Life Magazine
