Died in the Wool #Netgalley #Book #Review

Synopsis:
No good deed goes unpunished in the Whisky Business cozy mystery series as distillery owner Abigail Logan uncovers dark secrets—and murder—at a local charity.

Photojournalist Abi Logan is finally ready to put her hectic career on hold and set down roots in the heart of the Scottish countryside. Studying the business and art of distilling whisky at Abbey Glen and volunteering at the Shepherd’s Rest women’s shelter in her spare time seem a surefire way to find the peace and stability she craves. It’s also the logical way to take her mind off her personal life. Abi’s business partner, Grant MacEwan, is facing a career-threatening disability, and as much as Abi longs to be there for him, he seems to prefer the company of a rival.

But as Abi becomes more involved with Shepherd’s Rest, she discovers that their refuge is elusive. When the shelter is rocked by a murder/suicide, Abi is outraged by the police’s lack of attention to these already marginalized women. Increasingly confident in her own skills as an investigator, Abi steps in to find out what the police will not: who left one young woman dead and another missing. But when more deadly deeds come to light, Abi must race to unravel the connections between the shelter’s benefactors and the women they have pledged to protect—and expose the killer before he strikes again.

My Review:
Abi, the whiskey maker that relies on Grant for guidance is more interested in a good mystery.  She seems to be a magnet for trouble.  When she gets involved with Woolies and Shepherd's Rest, she finds more than she expected wrong with their situation....all I can say without revealing too much, is that Abi is an extremely determined woman!

I loved how this cozy mystery was written.  It flowed wonderfully and the focus was primarily on figuring out what was happening other than the whiskey.  There was only a hint of romance until the mystery was solved.  I really liked that, and the fact that this novel really has something for everyone.
