Amazing news is spreading like wildfire across the Scottish countryside: the most famous of all Highland bachelors, police sergeant Hamish Macbeth, is planning to marry at last!
Everyone in the village of Lochdubh adores Josie McSween, Hamish's newest constable and blushing bride-to-be. While locals think she is quite a catch, Hamish has a severe case of pre-nuptial jitters...after all, if it wasn't for the recent murder of a beautiful woman in a neighbouring village there wouldn't be a wedding in the first place.
For it was a mysterious Valentine's Day card - delivered to the victim before her death - which initially drew Hamish and Josie together in the investigation. And now, as they work side by side, they soon discover that the woman's list of admirers was endless - confirming Hamish's suspicion that love can be deaf, blind...and deadly!

The Hamish Macbeth stories are perfect relaxing escapist novels, all centred around the attractive eponymous policeman and his Highland police station in Scotland. I enjoy them as they are amusing and fairly undemanding although occasionally they do suddenly tackle a gruesome murder! If you enjoy Midsomer Murders on TV then you will enjoy all of The Hamish Macbeth novels. Good late night listening with a pleasant Scottish narrator.
The narrators soft Highland accent was just as I imagined Hamish Macbeth to sound. He really brought the character to life
The story was more of the same from M C Beaton who has a winning formula and never deviates, makes very light reading/listening.
As I've said, the narrator is just perfect
Very light but enjoyable listending.
