Hamish Macbeth and Death...

I'm on a roll - thanks to a positive note I saw from Orson Scott Card regarding MC Beaton's Hamish Macbeth series, I've been tearing through this likeable series of "cozy" murder mysteries:

Hamish Macbeth has a reputation for laziness; because he loves his native town of Lochdubh (meaning 'black lake' (loch) in Gaelic and pronounced Loch-doo), he avoids promotion, occasionally even deliberately destroying attempts to give him recognition for his accomplishments. Because of his position as "local bobby," he must often work outside official channels, as the detectives from neighbouring Strathbane CID do not appreciate his help.

So far I've read:

Death of:

  • An Outsider
  • A Bore
  • A Gentle Lady
  • A Perfect Wife
Lots of fun - I've no doubt I'll work my way through them all....
