Piper Hunt leaves Boston to take over her grandfather's unique curio shop in Glinhaven, Massachusetts. While adjusting to life in the quaint seaside village, she uncovers dark secrets hidden at the forbidding Glinhaven Monastery which may also unlock mysteries from her past.

Because many residents of Glinhaven Village, Massachusetts are of Scottish descent, their food often reflects their heritage with age-old but tried-and-true recipes, handed down for generations.


Taste Cam MacDevitt's uniquely original bacon meatloaf and Piper Hunt's luscious Boston Egg Salad, or her quick and easy spaghetti sauce. Sample local fare at Glinhaven Village's harbor-side eateries known as Purdy's Cafe and Delaney's Burger Hub, or the Crow's Nest Lodge. Their specialties include Cape Codder, Crab Cakes, New England Clam Chowder, Double Mushroom Burgers and homemade French Fries.

Or hire the new catering company Rudeigin Bòidheach (translated from Scots-Gaelic into "Something Delicious") for a delectable food array with Baps, Clapshot, Clootie Dumpling, Mince & Tatties and Scotch Trifle.


If lucky enough to be invited by Lady Glinhaven, enjoy an elegant yet somehow ominous repast at the Glinhaven mansion ("Is it poisoned?" Piper wonders), including tea service or a sumptuous dinner with Atholl Brose, Cucumber Sandwiches, Dundee Cake, Lamingtons, Lobster Bisque, Pan-Fried Crusted Sole, Potted Shrimp, Red Velvet Cake, Rumbledthumps and Tweed Kettle.


The monks at the Glinhaven Monastery are also known to be excellent chefs, with a flair for the unusual as well as the ordinary. They produce their own homemade baked goods (Challah and Manchet breads, coffee cakes, bagels, breadsticks, cinnamon rolls and farmhouse loaves, among others), along with simple fare such as Biscuits The Cats of Glinhaven: Recipes for Felines& Gravy, Ham & Beans, and Shepherd's Pie.

The resident Scottish Fold felines at the monastery have their favorite meals as well, painstakingly prepared for them by Brother Albert Michaels and Brother Brian MacBee. Try the homemade recipes for Beefy Cat Dinner, Corny Cat Biscuits, Fish Custard, Kiki Kedgeree, and Turkey & Rice. Not to be outdone, Moggy Malone and Sith Mochrie from The Thistle curio shop also have their favorite nom-nom's, including Chicken & Cheese, Fish Balls, Sardine Chicken and Trout Pate.
