I love Hamish Macbeth, why can not everybody in Lochdubh see that he is perfectly happy staying there? He needs a wife who will be content with his life as it is. Can not wait to see what happens next to this gentle man. Quilter75

A handsome newcomer upsets life in the village of Drim and when he is murdered, Hamish Macbeth must discover which of the villagers was angry enough to kill. Hamish's love life is plagued with its usual luck as his engagement to Priscilla Halburton-Smythe does not go well. As charming as the title.

This is number 10 of the Hamish Macbeth series and I can honestly say since I am reading the series in order that these never get old. Instead, I have a new favorite country, Scotland. I have a newfound respect for the unambitious, albeit probably confined to Hamish. I revel in the descriptions of the smells and dank weather and always threatening storms, mists, fogs, and even the occasional sunny day. The characters are maddening and Hamish's on and off again relationship with the love of his life is always intriguing. I have avoided "series" my whole life as being too much of a committment, but I have to say that these and M. C. Beaton's Agatha Raisin series (I'm alternating between the two not having been able to choose between them after having read the first of each) never gets old. I'm serious! So enter if you dare. Guaranteed: the well written Agatha and Hamish series will become not only a welcome, but necessary part of your life.

Another pleasant outing with Hamish. The humor is gentle, the mystery a small one (far too easily solved this time for me), and the story short. It was an incredibly quick read, but I didn't enjoy it as much as I had others in the past. It had been a while since I read the last one. Might be a bit longer yet before I read another. This one had a definite ho-hum quality to it. 2

hamish macbeth is at his usual, ungainly detective deducting. the victim is thoroughly unlikable, as well as the murder suspects. one character stands out, the precocious young girl. entertaining reading.
