Her table manners were a crime. But she didn't deserve to die!
There's not a cloud in Hamish Macbeth's sky - just plenty of warm sunshine but not quite enough of the lovely Priscilla Halburton-Smythe. But as eight hopeful members of the Checkmate Singles Club converge on Tommel Castle Hotel for a week of serious matchmaking, the clouds roll in. The four couples, carefully matched by dating director Maria Worth, immediately dislike one another. And the arrival of Maria's gross, greedy business partner, Peta, kills the last vestige of romance. And as love goes out the window, murder comes in the door. Peta soon slurps up her last meal and Hamish is left with the baffling puzzle: Who shared the fateful outing that left Peta dead with a large rosy red apple in her mouth....
M. C. Beaton worked as a Fleet Street journalist. She is the author of 16 Agatha Raisin novels, the Hamish MacBeth series, and an Edwardian murder-mystery series. She divides her time between the Cotswolds, where she lives in a village very much like Agatha's beloved Carsely, and Paris.

Audio gives the book life
Other M C Beaton books including Agatha Raisin as they're full of wonderful descriptions of both landscape and characters and have some wonderfully humorous passages. The lead characters are also never disappointing.
The accent, the lilting voice and the characterisation just can't be surpassed
Remember the 7 deadly sins
Well worth a listen as is the rest of the series.
