#5 in the Hamish MacBeth series. A wealthy woman is killed when her car catches fire. Technically she died of a heart attack, but everyone in her household knew of her weak heart, so who was it who planted the incendiary device? Her mousy niece? One of the four gentleman suitors whom she'd invited so she could choose a husband? Or someone else? Hamish is on the case! Once again, his superiors want to write this off as an accident, but when Hamish finds proof that the car was made to catch fire and then another dead body turns up, it's pretty obvious that's not the case. As always, an enjoyable quick read.
Like all of Beaton books the Hamish MacBeth series is a not to be put down read. Maggie Baird has invited her neice and four former lovers, one of whom she had intended to pick for a husband, to stay with her at her Highland cottage. Maggies car catches fire, with Maggie in it and there are five likely perpetators right on the premises.
I truly enjoy the Hamish McBeth books. Another enjoyable read.
Another good Hamish Macbeth story
Anyone who is a fan of British (and Scots) mystery and adventure will enjoy the ongoing antics of Hamish MacBeth in his efforts to remain obscure in his quiet (mistly) town in Scotland. In the process, he intrigues and entertains us as he manages to lead us to an always surprising conclusions.
Hamish Macbeth just wants peace and instead he gets a murder and more suspects than he can count on one hand.
The fifth book in the series.
Hamish investigates the murder of a former "professional girlfriend".
Did her henpecked niece or one of her former lovers do her in?
This is the first Hamish MacBeth mystery I've read, but it won"t be the last.
This was a good story. I enjoy reading clean books.
