Final Fling by Maggie Foster is the fourth book in the Loch Lonach Mystery series. Ginny Forbes should be celebrating her upcoming wedding to Jim, laird-in-training, but instead, she's investigating another murder. When Caroline is accused of murder, Ginny can't let her Maid of Honor go to jail so she takes it upon herself to prove her best friend's innocence. A trip to New Orleans to retrieve some evidence is quickly derailed after she's captured and becomes lost on an alligator farm where she also finds herself part of a voodoo ceremony. She's racing to find a killer while trying to stay a step ahead before she becomes the next victim. Before she can get married, she must prove her Maid of Honor innocent, catch a killer, and work through some pre-wedding stresses.

The story has a delightfully unique world that is full of originality and unlike any cozy mystery you've read. Maggie Foster has created a world that will make you want to join the town of Loch Lonach and be part of the community. Foster breathes new life into the cozy genre with a suspenseful and clever murder mystery that keeps you guessing until the end as Ginny takes on alligators, voodoo, and a killer. Foster uses a genuine tone to explore Ginny's jitters and emotions as she faces the changes in her life while maintaining who she is, working in ICU, and solving murders. Her family unit is an important element within her life as it serves as support and strength. The town is the key component of the story with its own culture and society, which brings Scottish traditions to life in a unique and charming way. Final Fling is a must-read and a must-have for every mystery reader as it possesses true originality and an upbeat spirit with Scottish charm, a suspenseful murder mystery, and a unique world view.
