Beaton's Hamish Macbeth is always delightful. His slow rhythms, friendly bending of the law and keen mind make for very entertaining mysteries.

This series contains good examples of the British cozy murder mystery--good plotting, (very) quirky characters, relaxed pacing, and humorous predicaments for the main character. I have enjoyed every one of the books I have read.

M. C. Beaton never disappoints. Well-constructed mystery with every line relative to the story (i.e., without a lot of "padding" as found in so many books). Just wish she could write as fast as I can read; once started, her books are hard to put down.

Fun read in the best tradition of British mysteries. Hamish Macbeth is a local bobby in the Highlands of Scotland who has a knack of observing his surroundings and the people who inhabit them, and then solving crimes using his common sense skills. This is the third book in the seies.
