When Reverend Annabelle Dixon is given the chance to fill in for the local minister on the tiny, storm-lashed Scottish island of Blodraigh, she sees it as an ideal opportunity to make the most of the trip and spend some time with her brother and seven-year-old niece who live there.
What she doesn’t expect is to be drawn into a web of mystery and intrigue that shows up each and every flaw of the tight-knit islanders.
When a box of valuable jewelry is found and given to her for safekeeping she stores it in the church, only for it to be stolen that very night. But something much worse is about to happen.
Despite being hampered by a violent storm and the ineptitude of the local police, Annabelle is determined to uncover the source of the mysteries that threaten those she loves dearly and her own sense of justice.
But what she finds is a community filled with suspicion and gossip, where behind every door lies another set of secrets and another suspect.
Now time is running out for Annabelle as she searches for answers. Can she solve the crimes before the culprits strike again? Or before the islanders take matters into their own hands?

Vicar Annabelle is in Scottish Isles to be relief for the regular as well as visit with her brother and niece for a short time. While there she meets young and old in the village, is asked to keep safe a valuable box of jewelry, and locates a murder victim. It's the stormy season and there is no resident law enforcement on the island which makes everything more difficult! Good sleuthing, interesting characters, and enough red herrings to make it more exasperating. Loved it!
I have the audio narrated by Julie Missen who is great!

A wonderful book and narration.
This series is always interesting and the story is easy to follow. The characters are quirky yet heartwarming. The audio brings the story to life so well, that when I read the book I hear the narrator’s voice. This series should be in all cozy mystery fans’ libraries.

Loved listening to this book!
This was my favorite book to read in the series, and then to get to hear it read to me was even better! I really enjoyed the accent of the narrator, it added a charming note to the book for me. Looking forward to listening to more books from this writer.
