Wee Dose Of Death is the second book in the A ScotsShop Mystery series.

Peggy Winn, who owns ScotShop, a Scottish apparel shop in Hamelin, VT., decides to do a little cross country skiing and sets out on her favorite trail. As she nears a cabin where she plans to turn around and head back, she notices an area in snow that looks as if someone has fallen and has dragged their selves to the cabin. As she nears the cabin she hears Mac Campbell swearing and figures that he must be all right. She then turns around and heads back to town. Everything is not all right, as Mac had broken his leg and there is a dead body in the cabin.

A day or two later, Peggy hears that Campbell is supposedly missing and she lets the police know where he is. Soon after Mac is rescued, the body is identified as a biology professor that had gone to the cabin for some solitude and to work on a secret paper.

Peggy and Karaline Logg, a former student of the professor, visit the campus to talk with some of his grad students to gather information as to who might have wanted the professor dead.

Gilda who works in Peggy's store has returned after being in an alcohol abuse center and has returned with an adorable Scottie pup who has set residence in the shop. This is an enjoyable series with interesting and believable characters. Of course her Dirk, her ghost, is back to provide some humor.

Looking forward to the next book in the series to what mischief Dirk and the Scottie, Scamp, will get into and visit with the other residents of Hamelin. ( )

A second dose of Scottish charm from the author of A Wee Murder in My Shop.
 
While business is booming at the ScotShop in Hamelin, Vermont, proprietor Peggy Winn doesn’t have time to toast her good fortune thanks to her hot-tempered, fourteenth-century Scottish companion. Being thrust into the modern world hasn’t been easy for Dirk, but Peggy is at her wit’s end trying to keep the ghostie galoot in line.
 
But when the local police chief finds the body of Peggy’s friend Karaline’s college professor in a deserted mountain cabin, everyone is thrown for a loop. It seems the secretive professor may have been killed over his ecological work, an idea that’s only reinforced when Karaline herself is shot. Now Peggy and Dirk must set aside their differences to put the cold-blooded killer under loch and key...
