Who knew murder and mayhem could be so much fun!

The Hamish Macbeth series is a real delight. This author also writes the Agatha Raisen series. Both are wonderful. I have read them all and passed them along to family and friends. Everyone loves them. If you are into being taken away to the Scottish Highlands with a bit of murder, mayhem and a lot of laughter thrown in, then these are the books for you. The best part is that most of the murder victims are so unlikeable that you hardly miss them when they are gone!

M. C. Beaton

Another mystery in a little Scottish town. It will give you a good look at life in a small village. Seems like a postcard place to live, but then someone is found murdered and a mystery has to be solved. Thank goodness we have MacBeth on the job...I like this series.

Can this Pseudo-Engagement Be Saved?

Hamish MacBeth, the unamibitious and unlucky in love Police Constable of village of Lochdubh, finds himself both promoted and unofficially engaged to the cooly beautiful Priscilla Halburton-Smythe. However, a new inhabitant of the nearby and slightly sinister village of Drim is stirring up passions, and Hamish MacBeth is sensing trouble. The beautiful young man even tries to romance Hamish's unofficial fiancé, while the matrons of Drim flock to the hairdresser and the exercise classes and their men simmer and stew. Hamish smells something amiss when a local woman is found dead. Though it is labeled an accident - where has the charming man disappeared to? Who is covering up what? With a dose of highlands persistence, a strange pagan child, and a wee dram here and again, Hamish takes his mostly gentle persistence all around the countryside, despite instructions from headquarters and contrary to the gentle guidance of Priscilla, who seems to be more interested in just about anything than a passion for Hamish. Well written and sketched, an absolutely delightful cozy.

A wry commentary on menopause and a darned good mystery!

Beaton seems to like to include children in her stories and has created an exceptional one here, twelve-year-old Heather who can raise the power of Celtic gods when needed. This is a wry commentary on the vulnerability of menopausal women ("the men's pause," it's called in these pages) and a darned good mystery to boot, which you won't fully appreciate until the very last page!
