    4 stars to Melinda Mullet's Single Malt Murder: A Whisky Business Mystery, the first book in the new "Whisky Business" cozy mystery series. I stumbled across this book on NetGalley as a pre-release opportunity to read and review. I'm so glad I did! It was a fantastic new cozy with all ...

    When Abigail Logan?s Uncle Ben passed from cancer, she was devastated. He?d been her surrogate dad since her parents had been killed in a car accident when she was a child; his death was a dreadful loss. But the shock she received when she inherited Abbey Glen, a single malt whisky...

    A good start to an interesting series! For me, it was in the vein of a cozy but much grittier. Maybe due to the theme (I'm not well versed on the subject of whiskey) so I guess I learned a few things along the way. It was a solid mystery and the characters were well developed. I hope t...

    It's OK like a hundred other books are OK. Books like this one will either fly or crash on how the setting is handled. Unfortunately this book was an opportunity missed, the mystery wasn't good enough to fly on its own but it could have been saved by concentrating more on the whis...

    A good start to an interesting series! For me, it was in the vein of a cozy but much grittier. Maybe due to the theme (I'm not well versed on the subject of whiskey) so I guess I learned a few things along the way. It was a solid mystery and the characters were well developed. I hope t...

    Absolutely delicious! I'm speaking of the book, not the booze. I enjoyed every word of this one from beginning to end. And speaking of words, I must point out that you'll find no "e" in whisky here; the Scots, I've learned, spell it "whisky" while the Irish - and as far as I can tell, ...

    Abi Logan inherits her uncle's small distillery in Scotland. The distillery has a very good reputation for producing quality single malt whisky. I thought it was interesting about the difference between single malt and whisky blends. The information about whisky production was one of t...

    Lots of suspects, a murder or two--seems Scotland isn't quite as peaceful as Abi would have thought! Abi Logan has inherited her uncle's entire estate and distillery. Since then she's been been getting weird threats. When she arrives in Scotland, the general consensus is that it's s...

    As a Scottish mystery, the writing is spot on. Small details ? meticulously incorporated ? enhance the overall reading experience and immerse the reader in the setting. I?m not a whisky connoisseur (or any alcohol for that matter) but from what little knowledge I do have, the des...

    Sigh. At least this one had a very good narrator. :-) I didn't love this book and I didn't hate this book - it was just meh. I will say that the end was the best part of the book as I never, ever, saw that coming. And that was very satisfying. Some of the issue with this was just ...

    Being a drinker of fine single malt whisky I thought this one would be a good read. A murder mystery with the usual plethora of suspects and motives all set in and around a Scottish Distillery. Lot's of enjoyable characters, including a lovable dog, and a pretty decent story overall. I...

    I totally enjoyed this book, I listened to it on audio and the reader had an accent that immediately put you in Scotland. When Abigail inherits a distillery, she is at a loss, she is a photojournalist. She goes to check it out with her friend who knows all about whiskey. When Abi start...

    I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The first book in a new series does credit to the cozy mystery genre. There's a great cast of characters, some twists, and, of course, murder. Abi has inherited a whiskey distillery, and someone is...

    Single Malt Murder is an very interesting criminal mystery, where you can learn much about making whisky and about life in small Scottish town, besides solving a murder. The built up of this story is very clever, readers get to know the main characters, they learn a lot about whiske...

    First I would like to thank Netgalley and Randon House Publishing Group for allowing me to read this advanced copy. As soon as I read the description of this book I was eager to get it, and it did not disappoint. Abi inherits a whiskey distillery from her uncle. Since she has a bre...

    Single Malt Murder is the first book in a brand new series -- The Whisky Business Mystery series. The theme and the cover got my attention, pulling me in to read this book by new author, Melinda Mullet. I'm glad...this was an enjoyable read! First, the basics: Following the death of...

    Abigail Logan has inherited Abbey Glen, a single malt whisky distillery in the Scottish Highlands. She had no clue what she would do and since losing her Uncle Ben that left it to her she was devastated. Just when she is taking off work to sort things out she starts to receive threa...

    This is a wonderful debut mystery! The story quickly drew my attention and kept me glued to the pages. The characters are vibrant, likable and believable. The author does such a wonderful job of describing the setting and various locations I could easily picture them in my mind. The my...

    Sometimes books that you just stumble upon turn out to be true gems. :) So, I've felt like I've been in a rut with my reading lately - especially with my review requests. Not that I needed to add anything to my TBR shelf, but I do like variety ;) That's how I stumbled upon Single ...

    Single Malt Murder is an very interesting criminal mystery, where you can learn much about making whisky and about life in small Scottish town, besides solving a murder. The built up of this story is very clever, readers get to know the main characters, they learn a lot about whiske...

    4 stars to Melinda Mullet's Single Malt Murder: A Whisky Business Mystery, the first book in the new "Whisky Business" cozy mystery series. I stumbled across this book on NetGalley as a pre-release opportunity to read and review. I'm so glad I did! It was a fantastic new cozy with all ...

    When Abigail Logan?s Uncle Ben passed from cancer, she was devastated. He?d been her surrogate dad since her parents had been killed in a car accident when she was a child; his death was a dreadful loss. But the shock she received when she inherited Abbey Glen, a single malt whisky...

    A good start to an interesting series! For me, it was in the vein of a cozy but much grittier. Maybe due to the theme (I'm not well versed on the subject of whiskey) so I guess I learned a few things along the way. It was a solid mystery and the characters were well developed. I hope t...

    That was quick (and an excellent audio performance by Gemma Dawson)! Let?s start where all good mysteries should start - with a good dram! ? ? For those familiar with this series, you?ll know that Abigail Logan is very good at impressions - 3 carefully chosen adjectives t...

    Absolutely delicious! I'm speaking of the book, not the booze. I enjoyed every word of this one from beginning to end. And speaking of words, I must point out that you'll find no "e" in whisky here; the Scots, I've learned, spell it "whisky" while the Irish - and as far as I can tell, ...

    Photojournalist Abigail Logan is devastated when her uncle Ben dies. He?s the only family she had left. Now she discovers her uncle left her his whisky distillery. She knows nothing about the whisky business, but she realizes she better learn quickly. Along with her best friend, Patr...

    When Abigail Logan's Uncle Ben dies and leaves her a whiskey distillery, the world traveled photographer is at a lost in what to do with a whiskey distillery?! With her best friend and whiskey expert Patrick and her wheaten terrier Liam in tow. She goes to see what her Uncle Ben's lif...

    It's OK like a hundred other books are OK. Books like this one will either fly or crash on how the setting is handled. Unfortunately this book was an opportunity missed, the mystery wasn't good enough to fly on its own but it could have been saved by concentrating more on the whis...

    Dollycas?s Thoughts This series is off to a spectacular start! Photojournalist Abi Logan lost her parents early in her life in an auto accident. She was then raised by her Uncle Ben. She has been traveling around the world to some pretty dangerous places while Uncle Ben retired...

    Sigh. At least this one had a very good narrator. :-) I didn't love this book and I didn't hate this book - it was just meh. I will say that the end was the best part of the book as I never, ever, saw that coming. And that was very satisfying. Some of the issue with this was just ...

    Sometimes books that you just stumble upon turn out to be true gems. :) So, I've felt like I've been in a rut with my reading lately - especially with my review requests. Not that I needed to add anything to my TBR shelf, but I do like variety ;) That's how I stumbled upon Single ...

    A sophisticated, complex and intriguing mystery involving murder and mayhem. With the multitude of players involved, the twists and turns, constant change of suspects based on cleverly placed clues and eliminations, the story could have been confusing, but through the author's crafty w...

    4 stars to Melinda Mullet's Single Malt Murder: A Whisky Business Mystery, the first book in the new "Whisky Business" cozy mystery series. I stumbled across this book on NetGalley as a pre-release opportunity to read and review. I'm so glad I did! It was a fantastic new cozy with all ...

    When Abigail Logan?s Uncle Ben passed from cancer, she was devastated. He?d been her surrogate dad since her parents had been killed in a car accident when she was a child; his death was a dreadful loss. But the shock she received when she inherited Abbey Glen, a single malt whisky...

    A good start to an interesting series! For me, it was in the vein of a cozy but much grittier. Maybe due to the theme (I'm not well versed on the subject of whiskey) so I guess I learned a few things along the way. It was a solid mystery and the characters were well developed. I hope t...

    That was quick (and an excellent audio performance by Gemma Dawson)! Let?s start where all good mysteries should start - with a good dram! ? ? For those familiar with this series, you?ll know that Abigail Logan is very good at impressions - 3 carefully chosen adjectives t...

    Absolutely delicious! I'm speaking of the book, not the booze. I enjoyed every word of this one from beginning to end. And speaking of words, I must point out that you'll find no "e" in whisky here; the Scots, I've learned, spell it "whisky" while the Irish - and as far as I can tell, ...

    It's OK like a hundred other books are OK. Books like this one will either fly or crash on how the setting is handled. Unfortunately this book was an opportunity missed, the mystery wasn't good enough to fly on its own but it could have been saved by concentrating more on the whis...

    Lots of suspects, a murder or two--seems Scotland isn't quite as peaceful as Abi would have thought! Abi Logan has inherited her uncle's entire estate and distillery. Since then she's been been getting weird threats. When she arrives in Scotland, the general consensus is that it's s...

    As a Scottish mystery, the writing is spot on. Small details ? meticulously incorporated ? enhance the overall reading experience and immerse the reader in the setting. I?m not a whisky connoisseur (or any alcohol for that matter) but from what little knowledge I do have, the des...

    Sigh. At least this one had a very good narrator. :-) I didn't love this book and I didn't hate this book - it was just meh. I will say that the end was the best part of the book as I never, ever, saw that coming. And that was very satisfying. Some of the issue with this was just ...

    I totally enjoyed this book, I listened to it on audio and the reader had an accent that immediately put you in Scotland. When Abigail inherits a distillery, she is at a loss, she is a photojournalist. She goes to check it out with her friend who knows all about whiskey. When Abi start...

    I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The first book in a new series does credit to the cozy mystery genre. There's a great cast of characters, some twists, and, of course, murder. Abi has inherited a whiskey distillery, and someone is...

    Single Malt Murder is an very interesting criminal mystery, where you can learn much about making whisky and about life in small Scottish town, besides solving a murder. The built up of this story is very clever, readers get to know the main characters, they learn a lot about whiske...

    Sometimes books that you just stumble upon turn out to be true gems. :) So, I've felt like I've been in a rut with my reading lately - especially with my review requests. Not that I needed to add anything to my TBR shelf, but I do like variety ;) That's how I stumbled upon Single ...
