    This is a re read of the first two in the series The series takes place a small town in the Scottish highlands where Hamish Macbeth is the solitary member of the local constabulary Starting in the first book a visitor to the locale is murdered and while they call in a forensic crew from a bigger city Hamish doesn't give up looking for the murderer These books are uick reads very entertaining and at times very funny It's a good series to lose yourself in

    I enjoyed these first two stories featuring Constable Hamish MacBeth for what they are the ultimate in cozy British mysteries Each were only 5 hours long the junk food of novelsThe most enjoyable feature was the narrator who did a fabulous job on the variety of accents in the story contrasting the soft Highland brogue with the Glaswegian inspector and the Scouse tourists I could just listen to him speak about anything reallyThe main mystery plots are a bit cookie cutter Group of people get together person who is murdered is annoying etc so many motives abound people keeping secrets a small town where gossip flies constantly I don't actually care whodunnit if I'm honest but I really grew affectionate of Hamish All he wants is a uiet life with a constant easy going job and a cuppa tea while he's out doing it Totes understand Hamish

    I made it through the first book and it was okay as a mystery but the main POV characters the local cop with no ambition who is in love with a woman out of his league and one of the many suspects who gets involved with a man she should stay away from were so unlikeable getting through it was an effort successful only because I was listening at 2x speed But I kept putting off listening to the second book in the audiobook and when an audiobook I had on reserve popped up I had no trouble just returning this one and calling it uits

    This series was recommended to me as a fun murder mystery series It was an interesting 1st and 2nd book in the series about a small town constable in Scotland The audiobook reader was amazing The plot movessoooo slow Honestly it is a terribly short book as far as adult murder mysteries go but I had a hard time keeping into the book Then of course you start to really love the characters for who they are and this becomes a series that you want to follow and work through If the books were any longer I wouldn't have been able to handle it However he is a uirky man in love with a wealthy young lady who loves his job as the constable He has no ambitions to rise in the ranks of the police force as he is completely happy where he is at However while he may seem slow witted his discovering the true murder makes it a fun ending

    Hamish MacBeth is a simple small town bobby who investigates local murders even though all of his superiors tell him not to and think he's lazy He gets results because he has a way of relating to people and getting them to talk and help him It's neat to read a book set in the highlands of Scotland The original book was written in 1985 so there are also no cell phones and technology like that Hamish is always asking people if he can use their phone which adds some charm to the story in modern times I listened to the audiobook which included the first two books in the series I remember watching the TV series years ago and scenes from the show kept flashing through my mind as I listened to the book I enjoyed the Scottish accents by the narrator

    I was looking for a cozy mystery to take with me on vacation I was completely relaxing brought no work with me not even my computer only my phone so I downloaded these two stories via Audible I got sucked into the highlands of Scotland and the vivid atmosphere of the countryside and then the murder mysteries that kept my interest and kept me transportedHow much did I like this book? Well not 5 stars like a book that changes my life or anything but I downloaded of the Hamish MacBeth stories and listened to them nonstop for my entire summer vacation Now I'm back home and still finishing them up Can't stop They're like potato chips

    M C Beaton introduces her detective Constable Hamish Macbeth in this book She presents a young man who works uietly in rural area of Scotland He rather languidly goes about his duties but knows the area and its people Police detectives in the area fail to appreciate his true worth He is a contemplative man but takes action when necessary The suspects in the murder all have individual secrets and are well differentiated from one another The author has good knowledge of fishing and fish She describes the locale adroitly


  10. Robin Robin says:

    This was really a 25 rating I had read a couple of Hamish Macbeth mysteries I uite enjoyed them and wanted to start at the beginning of the series since many of the characters have been developed from the beginning If I had read these two books first I might not have read any others Thankfully the series gets better The Death of a Gossip book I didn’t really enjoy very much The Death of a Cad was better It makes me a little hesitant to read very many of the beginning books of this series
