Death of a Snob - Hamish MacBeth, Bk 6 Author:M. C. Beaton When Police Constable Hamish Macbeth is offered a holiday at Jane Wetherby's "Happy Wanderer" health farm on the Isle of Eileencraig, he accepts. Unfortunately it is not the holiday he hoped for. When one of the guests, stuck-up Morag, is found dead, Hamish must solve the death of a snob.
Sixth in the Hamish MacBeth cozy Scottish police procedural series, in which Hamish, bereft of plans for the Christmas holiday, takes up the invite of a friend of Priscilla's and joins her at her health farm on a lonely island to investigate whether or not someone is trying to kill her. Someone DOES die, but it's not Jane--it's Heather, one of her houseguests. Was Heather murdered because she was Heather or because someone thought she was Jane? Supt. Blair writes off the murder as an accident but Hamish knows better and eventually gets his man. As usual, a quick, light and enjoyable read.
