Praise for The Swick and the Dead

"The story is brilliant! If you like a good murder mystery, this is the book for you!”

“This is the second installment of the Loch Lonach series by this extremely talented and creative writer. The storyline has interconnecting plots that revolve around the current events of today in Texas: illegal refugees, drug cartels, nursing shortages. I was once again charmed with the Scottish customs and language. The ending is one of those where you have to remind yourself to breathe.” Amazon Reader, Sally S.

“It's always refreshing to read a twist I didn't see coming. The strong opening chapter hooks the reader, successfully foreshadowing coming events. Ginny is a relatable heroine. The entertaining three-dimensional characters and interesting plot make this story shine.” - Judge, 27th Annual Writer's Digest Self-Published Book Awards.

“A cleverly plotted murder/mystery, perfect for fans of Midsummer Murders.” The Wishing Shelf Book Awards


“A twisting, turning plot. I enjoyed this. Loved the cover too!” UK reader
