Death of a Witch (Hamish Macbeth Series #24) by M. C. Beaton

Returning from a foreign holiday, Hamish Macbeth is worried because he senses a dark cloud of evil hanging over the Highland village of Lochdubh. He learns that a newcomer, Catriona Beldame, is regarded as a witch and various men have been seen visiting her. Hamish himself is charmed by her until he finds out she has been supplying dangerous potions. At first the villagers won't listen to him, saying that the loveless Hamish has turned against all women. He threatens to kill her so that when she is found murdered, he must clear his name and then work to solve yet another murder to bring peace and quiet back to his beloved village. His investigations are complicated by a romance with a female forensic expert. Perhaps he'll get married at last!

I've been reading this series about murder and mayhem in the Scottish Highlands for years, and I always look forward to the newest one. It's comforting to return to all the familiar characters and settings - not to mention the apparent propensity for murder in and around Lochdubh, the village where Constable Hamish Macbeth resides. This time Hamish is hot on the trail of someone who has murdered several women, including a "witch" who'd created quite a stir in the area. And once again the red-haired sleuth is fending off both promotion (which would require him to leave Lochdubh) and the wiles of several ladies determined to end his bachelorhood.

Hamish Macbeth comes back from vacation to find that there is a "witch" in town. The men flock to her. What is the witch doing to attract the men? Then, she and another woman are murdered. Are the murders connected? This is the first M.C. Beaton book I have read. It took me a few pages to get connect to Hamish. The characters are full of quirks, and the dialogue is in Highland Brogue. I have to admit that the author made me long to go to Scotland to the point that I googled the country. My overall description of this book is that it is a one-of-a-kind mystery. It is a fast read. It does not get bogged down in the details like so many other mysteries do. If you want a light mystery, this is a great book for you.

M. C. Beaton always puts out a good read. I love the way the small backwoods policeman can always outthink the superiors and solve the case. The superiors always get the credit for solving the case when they know that Hamish Mcbeth and his animals have figured it out.
