A good beginning

This series was recommended to me by a friend and now I can't stop. I am enjoying summer with extra reading time for relaxation and pleasure. The books are light reading and easy to follow, humor throughout.

The Death of a Gossip by m.c. Beaton

I received this pocket book for a good price, in good condition and in a timely fashion.

A fun and very different British mystery.

When I first started reading this book I didn't quite know what to think. However, I quickly found that I was having quite a bit of fun reading it. Beaton fills the book with plenty of interesting suspects and no one is more offbeat than the detective Hamish MacBeth. For a light and enjoyable read I can't recommend this book enough. We don't learn that much about Macbeth in this story, but if future stories he becomes more of the focus of Beaton's novels. The MacBeth novels have quickly become some of my favorite British (or Scotish to be more correct) mysteries.

First Hamish MacBeth - short on mystery, long on charm

The mystery is not the thing here, instead enjoy this book as an introduction to the thoroughly charming character of Hamish MacBeth, the unambitious village constable who wants nothing more than to be left alone to enjoy fishing and poaching and mooching meals off his neighbors and friends. Unfortunately for Hamish, the horrible Lady Jane Winters had to go and get herself murdered, bringing the unwanted attention of Hamish's superior, Inspector Blair. Typical British mystery with a small circle of suspects all of whom have a motive for murder.
