In this holiday novella, police constable Hamish Macbeth works in mysterious ways to make Christmas happier for residents of the Scottish village of Luchdubh -- while also solving a mystery, of course.
Hamish MacBeth manages to create a Highland Christmas celebration you will never forget. This slim volume contains more Christmas magic than a huge department store, all of it delivered with delightfully understated Highland humor, and (a gift from the author?) decorated with some marvelous illustrations. Looking for a perfect Christmas gift? Put this first on your list, it will suit all ages (and particularly a pet lover).
My first Hamish MacBeth experience and I must say it was a real pleasure to read. The way Hamish uses his contacts in the town to solve his problems are a sight to behold. I'll certainley be trying some other books from the series. A real fun read. JLM

I have read most of the Hamish MacBeth books and am a big fan. This book was a little different, less violent crime and conflict, but still some mystery and a lot of humor. I found it very charming. A great read (very quick as well) especially around the holidays.
This was an easy, delightful book. As usual, Hamish can be a sweet and charming man but when provoked, he can be nasty also. I'm delighted with this series and the charming enigmatic character of Hamish Macbeth. I recommned.
