About the book
On a remote Scottish island, American antiques dealer Kate Hamilton wrestles with her own past while sleuthing a brutal killing, staged to recreate a two-hundred-year-old unsolved murder.
Autumn has come and gone on Scotland ’s Isle of Glenroth, and the islanders gather for the Tartan Ball, the annual end-of-tourist-season gala. Spirits are high. A recently published novel about island history has brought hordes of tourists to the small Hebridean resort community. On the guest list is American antiques dealer Kate Hamilton. Kate returns reluctantly to the island where her husband died, determined to repair her relationship with his sister, proprietor of the island’s luxe country house hotel, famous for its connection with Bonnie Prince Charlie.
Kate has hardly unpacked when the next morning a body is found, murdered in a reenactment of an infamous unsolved murder described in the novel—and the only clue to the killer’s identity lies in a curiously embellished antique casket. The Scottish police discount the historical connection, but when a much-loved local handyman is arrested, Kate teams up with a vacationing detective inspector from Suffolk, England, to unmask a killer determined to rewrite island history—and Kate’s future.

And I thought
A great cover to lure you into a great story.
I love the locale. I enjoyed the eccentric group of characters. Kate the main character is
easy to like.
This one was a real page turner. I was interested from the start all the way to the end.
While the twists keep me turning the pages I almost didn’t want it to come to an end.
But I had to read the last page.
A Dream of Death is a great start to a new series that I am sure I will enjoy.
If you love Cozy Mysteries A Dream of Death is book 1 so start the series now.
I received a complimentary copy.
My review will appear on retail sites, Good Reads and social media.
