on Lefty shortlist!

Scot and Soda (Book 2)

"Frightfully funny" Publishers Weekly

Lexy sails again! Now settled in her little houseboat, moored in the slough at the back of the Last Ditch Motel, Lexy Campbell wants nothing more than to build her counseling business, avoid her mother’s phone calls and – who knows? – meet a nice guy. But when she throws a Halloween party for her motley crew of motel pals, the only single man is too old for her, too wrapped around the seventy-two pack chilling in the slough, and – oh, yes – too dead.

The smart choice is to leave it up to the cops to ID the body and catch the killer. Lexy and Co. are on the case before you could say “Tam O’Shanter”, delving deep into Cuento’s past for the roots of this present day nightmare.

McPherson’s imaginative, frightfully funny follow-up to 2018’s Scot Free ... Peppered with clever red herrings, the mystery gleefully revels in the absurd, but it’s Lexy’s friendships with the Last Ditch’s unusual residents that give this series its big heart.
