Wedding bells are set to ring as Dandy Gilver, family in tow, arrives in windswept Wester Ross on Valentine's Day. They've come to celebrate Lady Lavinia's 50th birthday and to meet her daughter Mallory, a less-than-suitable bride-to-be for Dandy's son Donald. But soon love is the last thing on Dandy's mind when the news breaks that Lady Lavinia has been found dead, brutally murdered in the middle of her famous knot garden. Strange superstitions and folklore abound among the Gaelic-speaking locals. But, Dandy suspects that the tangled boughs and branches around Applecross House hide something much more earthly at work.

Book:Dandy Gilver and the unpleasantness in the ballroom:2016

Year: 2016
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Hodder
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: London: Hodder & Stoughton, 2015 Glasgow, 1932, is a city in the grip of dance-fever. Public ballrooms and back-street dancehalls are thronged every night and competition for professional titles is fierce. Even after the sudden death of one of last year's hopefuls there are plenty willing to take his place, and few who stop to wonder why he died. In the melting pot of the Locarno Ballroom in Sauchiehall Street, a debutante rubs shoulders with denizens of Glasgow's meanest streets, her respectable fiance oblivious, her parents dismayed. When she starts receiving threats from a rival, they grow frantic enough to call on Dandy Gilver to save their precious daughter from harm. But as Dandy and her side-kick, Alec Osborne, begin to unravel the secrets of the dancehall, they soon discover that the rot goes much deeper than rivalry and there's more at stake than a silver cup.

Note: Scotland, 1933. Aristocratic private investigator Dandy Gilver strikes again with her witty sidekick Alec Osbourne to solve sinister goings on at a convent on a bleak Lanarkshire moor. The convent was set alight following a mass breakout at a neighbouring psychiatric hospital on Christmas Eve, resulting in the death of the mother superior. Most patients were returned safely but a few are still at large. As Dandy interviews each nun in turn she senses a stranger is still lurking in the corridors at night - could they be the same person who left blood-red footprints in the sacristy?

Year: 2014
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: On the rain-drenched, wave-lashed, wind-battered Banffshire coast, tiny fishing villages perch on ledges which would make a seagull think twice and crumbly mansions cling to crumblier cliff tops while, out in the bay, the herring drifters brave the storms to catch their silver darlings. It's nowhere for a child of gentle Northamptonshire to spend Christmas. But when odd things start to turn up in barrels of fish - with a strong whiff of murder most foul - that's exactly where Dandy Gilver finds herself.

Book:Quiet neighbors:2018
Author: MacPherson, Catriona
Year: 2018
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Midnight Ink
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: It's the oldest bookshop in a town full of bookshops; rambling and disordered, full of treasures if you look hard. Jude found one when she visited last summer, the high point of a miserable vacation. Now, in the depths of winter, when she has to run away, Lowell's chaotic bookshop is the safe place she runs to. She needs a bolt-hole; Lowell needs an assistant and, when an affordable rental is thrown in too, life begins to look up. The gravedigger's cottage isn't perfect for a woman alone but at least she has quiet neighbours. Quiet, but not silent. The long dead and the books they left behind both have tales to tell and the dusty rooms of the bookshop are not the haven they seem to be. Lowell's past and Jude's present are a dangerous cocktail of secrets and lies, and someone is coming to light the taper that could destroy everything.

Year: 2018
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Constable
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Donna Weaver has put everything into The Breakers. Now it waits - freshly painted, richly furnished, filled with flowers - for the first guests to arrive. But as they roll up - these couples and cousins, all in their forties - each one discovers they've been here before. Sasha had his sixteenth birthday at scruffy old Knockbreak House, as it was. Peach started a life of boozing there. Rosalie and Paul started the life they still share. Buck and Jennifer had one night they barely remember. They're the lucky ones. Because the party that started with peach schnapps and Postman's Knock ended with a girl walking into the sea. Sasha's parents hustled the children out of the spotlight. And as for the kids themselves? They made a vow of silence - 'lock it in a box, stitch my lips and go to my grave'. But one of them has broken the pact.
