I've been reading the books in this series for quite a long time & have loved everyone one of them including this new one. Hamish is quite the character & his most of the time quiet village is an interesting place. The people in this village are funny & really add alot to the plots. It's fun to follow Hamish as he patrols & protects his juristiction in the rugged hills of Notheren Scotland. His home is quite different - small, but room for his 2 wild cats. Even though he is considered the best detective in his area, he doesn't want a promotion because he does not want to leave his beloved town members. This is a cozy read with good characters & mysteries. Love these books & think you will too!

Great Fun Read

As usual, MC Beaton has done it again. I love her way of portraying these people in their humanity. No one perfect. All with their own quirks. Enough mystery but also humor interwoven. Great fun read.

    Another enjoyable adventure!

    Enjoyed this mystery as much as all the others in the series. The characters are fun to read about and the quirks so human! Since I know the area that the writer describes it is easy to visualize the scenes as well as the weather.

    Another great one. Hard to put down the farther I got into it. In the end I had to finish it even though it was after midnight when I was done. Great plot twists nnd I love all the characters.

    M.C. Beaton has characters in her books that keep you coming back for
    more. Her Agatha Raisin series and the Hamish Macbeth series are always
    interesting, and the continuing characters make them even more
    appealing. So far, I have never been disappointed in any of her books,
    and I always look forward to the next book in either series.

    This was my first Hamish Macbeth book and it was the perfect example of a cozy mystery set in Scotland. I definitely want to read more. When the death of the Kingfisher sets into motion a sting of murders, Hamish conducts the investigation like a true police detective. The characters are extremely realistic and believable and well thought out, they could be real people involved in a real police investigation. Hamish and his side kick Dick are village bobbies who have both humorous and serious sides as they undertake the investigation of numerous murders. This was a great read that keeps you guessing about who did it. If you love mysteries I would highly recommend this series.

    Thanks to Grand Central Publishing and Net Galley for sending me this book.
