I have already covered my overall thoughts on this large series in a previous post (you can find it here) but I felt like I needed to write about this one specifically because its one that's worth mentioning.
I found this mystery to have a little more going on that some of the other ones. I found it to be a little more fun and different then her usual ones. The ending was quite surprising and I did not expect anything in the slightest.
One thing you need to know about Hamish Macbeth is that he likes his little village policeman post. He does not want a promotion even though he is responsible for solving most of the crimes. He is always at war with Detective Chief Inspector Blair who would really love to see him fired, but things take on a new turn in this one. There's a bit of intrigue, a bit of murder, a bit of suspense, and a bit of humor. I really enjoyed this one.
I am singling out this one in specific because if I had to recommend just one, it would be this one. It stayed on my mind for quite a while after I read it, and I think it might just be one I need to re-read!
Recommendation: If you were interested in good, easy to read
mysteries, grab this one. I do believe you will enjoy it!
