About this title:
Amazing news has spread across the Scottish countryside. The most famous of highland bachelors, police sergeant Hamish Macbeth, may actually marry at last. The entire village of Lochdubh adores Macbeth's bride-to-be. Josie McSween is Hamish's new constable, and she is a pretty little thing, with glossy brown hair and big brown eyes. The local folk think that Josie is quite a catch, but Hamish couldn't be more miserable. The wedding wouldn't be happening if it weren't for the murder of a beautiful woman in a nearby village. After the gorgeous woman receives a deadly Valentine's Day gift, Hamish and Josie take on the case. However, they soon discover that the list of the victim's admirers is endless. The case confirms Hamish's belief that love is extremely dangerous, but he still can't avoid the events that lead up to his celebrated engagement.
About the Author:
M. C. Beaton worked as a Fleet Street journalist.She is the author of the Agatha Raisin novels, the Hamish Macbeth series and an Edwardian murder-mystery series.She divides her time between Paris and the Cotswolds, where she lives in a village very much like Agatha Raisin's beloved Carsely.
Fans will welcome the latest in the Hamish Macbeth mysteries, which opens to find him standing at the altar waiting miserably to be wed to his constable, Josie McSween, and praying to God that someone or something will intervene. Several murders have been solved earlier in the series, and between those crimes, taking care of his "beasties," and the intrusion of Josie, Macbeth has had his hands full. Graeme Malcolm has a great way with the accents of Lochdubh, Scotland, and he has a wonderful vocal timbre. His timing is impeccable, especially when he delivers the many humorous moments that Beaton's series is known for. Listeners will be unable to keep from smiling as Macbeth endures one calamity after another. S.S.R. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
