Death of a Greedy Woman (aka Death of a Glutton) (Hamish Macbeth, Bk 8)
Death of a Greedy Woman - aka Death of a Glutton - Hamish Macbeth, Bk 8 Author:M. C. Beaton There's not a cloud in Constable Hamish Macbeth's sky, just plenty of warm sunshine and not quite enough of beautiful Priscilla Halburton-Smythe. But as eight hopeful members of the Checkmate Singles Club converge on Tommel Castle Hotel for a week of serious matchmaking, the clouds roll in. The four couples, carefully matched by dating d... more »irector Maria Worth, immediately dislike each other. The arrival of Maria's gross, greedy partner, Peta, kills the last vestige of romance. And as love goes out the window, murder comes in the door. Peta soon slurps up her last meal, and Hamish is left with a baffling puzzle: Who shared the fateful outing that left Peta dead with a big red apple in her mouth? Surely not of those singles...
To have read one of the Hamish MacBeth mysteries, is all that is needed to want for another. This is one of my favorites, for the humor alone. The discriptions of this glutton are so halarious it is shameful! You have to love Hamish and his modest ways, his romantic blunderings and the setting it all takes place in bring me a peace of mind I don't find in a murder mystery of any other type!
Another of the popular Hamish Macbeth mystery and this one is funny. Hamish must deal with a group of members of the Checkmate Singles Club, who are, of course, looking for a mate. The plot and characters are interesting and funny...but as usual, Hamish finds the culprit of the murder.
