Sea Isle was supposed to be the fresh start Dr. Emilia McRoy dreamed of. Far from the busy emergency room across the Atlantic in Seattle, she hoped to settle down and begin this new chapter as a small-town doctor to the quirky residents who immediately welcomed her. When she stumbles across a dead body, she starts to think that she may not be as Scot free of the drama and intrigue as she initially thought.
Emilia soon learns she has bigger issues at hand. It starts with realizing she’ll work closely with the less than helpful local constable, Laird Ewan Campbell. Her luck continues when she discovers that part of her new responsibilities includes being the coroner for the very body she found. Finally, when the body goes missing before she can even begin the autopsy, she must convince the townspeople that a crime did, in fact, occur. The deeper she digs into the picturesque town, the more suspicious she becomes. And then there are her sleep issues. It may be due to the ever-growing list of suspects, a number of threatening letters, or the surprise visitor who breaks into her house at night. But she’s never backed down before, and she doesn’t intend to start now.
Someone doesn’t want this doctor to treat the ailments of Sea Isle, but Emilia McRoy is determined to find the murderer before they kilt again.
Emilia has given up her job in Seattle. It has way too many bad memories for her. So, she takes a leap of faith and moves to a very small town in Scotland. She is expecting an easy time of it and a slower pace. Then it all changes when she discovers a dead body and she falls right in the middle of a murder!
Now, this is not my usual genre. I am not a big fan of cozy mysteries. But, I wanted to listen to it because we have a trip to Scotland coming up and I wanted to get in the groove.
What I don’t necessarily like about cozy mysteries is that they are overly dramatic. And this one falls right into that category. But, this book is still pretty good! I am definitely going to look out for the next in the series. I loved Emilia, even if she was a bit stupid in some of her decision making skills. But Ewan, the Scottish Laird made up for that real quick!😜
The narrator, Kimberly M. Wetherell did a great job, especially with the Scottish accent. Sometimes that is a hit or miss.
