Overview

Death of a Perfect Wife (Hamish Macbeth Series #4) by M. C. Beaton

From the author of the Agatha Raisin television series...
DEATH OF A PERFECT WIFE: A Hamish Macbeth Mystery
Hamish Macbeth, the laid-back constable of Lochdubh, Scotland, has a new Land Rover to drive and a summer to savor, but as fast as rain rolls in from the loch, his happy life goes to hell in a handbasket. The trouble begins when his beloved Priscilla Halburton-Smythe returns from London . . . with a fiancé on her arm. His miseries multiply when clouds of midges (the diabolical Scottish mosquito) descend on the town. Then a paragon of housewifery named Trixie Thomas moves into Lochdubh with her lapdog husband in tow. The newcomer quickly convinces the local ladies to embrace low-cholesterol meals, ban tobacco, and begin bird-watching. Soon the town's fish-and-chips-loving men are up in arms. Now faced with the trials of his own soul, Macbeth must solve Lochdubh's newest crime-the mysterious poisoning of the perfect wife.

The characters in this book come to life! Think of Agatha Christie with a touch of Scottish charm and humor! I just love Hamish Macbeth and Towser!

If you want a nice gentle sweet read, then you want Hanish. He is so calming and gentle. Love him. Wish he was real and lived in my neighborhood.

I am hooked on the Hamish Macbeth series by M.C. Beaton. I have always loved the style of writing of english authors. Once I start a new book, I can hardly put it down, and when finished I want to go the the next book in the series right away. If you enjoy English murder mysteries, you will love the Hamish Macbeth series. Quilter75
