Mysteries of Carnbeg

(A book in the Carnbeg series)
A novel by

Ronald Frame returns to Carnbeg for a third Kindle-exclusive collection of short stories about his fictional spa resort in the Highlands of Scotland.

Here is a further compellingly readable and entertaining anthology of Carnbeg lives, past and present.

The secrets those lives contain may run deep and dark.

A mother and daughter meet up for a fraught Mother's Day lunch. A professor's widow is contacted by a young TV researcher who has a troubling clip of cine-film to show her. A failed love affair changes Alistair Kinnear into someone he wouldn't have been able to recognise when he moved to Carnbeg as an idealistic civil engineer in his first job. Afternoon tea in a Buenos Aires apartment always makes the elderly hostess recall Carnbeg and a chain of terrible misunderstandings.

Other mysteries in these twenty-nine stories are a lighter sort.

An American couple trace their Scottish roots, and discover more than they had bargained for. How does formidable tee-total Miss Euphemia Dunnett end up a regular in the snug of the Drovers' Rest? A 'This is Your Life' broadcast featuring a Scottish theatre legend leaves out more than it can decently show viewers at home. Tilly's repeated use of a harmless expression drives her great-niece to distraction - and a desperate act - but Tilly has the very last word(s).

Welcome once again to Carnbeg - and Haste Ye Back!
