Summary

A crime of passion strikes close to home when Gemma and her best friend, Hazel Cavendish, travel to Scotland, a land of mists and fine whiskey, of hidden pasts and dangerous secrets, or so Gemma discovers when an unexpected meeting with Hazel's old flame yields shocking - and mortal - consequences.

Hazel is the logical suspect, but Gemma knows nothing is simple in this place of secrets and long-seething hatreds. As even more damning evidence piles up against the friend Gemma never truly knew, the investigation takes a darker, more sinister turn. Gemma knows she will need assistance to unravel this bloody knot. And so she calls the one man she can trust, Duncan Kincaid, to join her far from home and in harm's way.

Two in one

The weaving of the 19th century story with the modern one did not work for me - glad it was an included title.

Meh

Sometimes Ms. Crombie paints her women offensively simplistic. Our heroine is so hot-headed and reactionary, she seems very immature to me. Why would a dish like Duncan Kincaid bother with her, I find myself wondering. And every story leans heavily on the preconception that men never acknowledge the competence of women. As for dialogue, most suspects spend a lot of time braying, “but Inspector, you can’t think that I killed him!!.....blah, blah, blah.” These timeworn devices are tiresome to me, and really differentiate the literary writers from the pulp fiction writers. Because that is what this is — fodder for the recycle bin. Too bad, because the story was good, and descriptions of the beauty of Scotland are travel-inspiring.

Very enjoyable Audiobook. Recommended.

Excellent Audiobook, brilliantly narrated by Michael Deehy who has a talent for different accents. I originally read the hardback version, but Mr. Deehy’s skilled narration improved my appreciation and rating. Love the moodier setting in Scotland and a Highlands distillery, which included a refresher about single-malt Scotch whisky. Whilst reading I couldn’t resist sipping my favorite, “cult classic” Scotch whisky, sherry cask.

A Favorite

This is a third reading over many years’ time. I actually thought I remembered who did it and I was wrong. I enjoyed all the backstories, the Scottish location and, really, everything about it.

My favorite so far

I am enjoying this series though I skipped those that weren’t narrated my Michael Deehy. This complexity of this story as well as the historical information was great.

Best one yet!

I am enjoying this series more than I ever thought I would and Now May You Weep was the best so far. Mr. Deehy’s performance, as always, was brilliant!

Good story

Great narrator, wonderful accents! I had some trouble following the story when sometimes first names were used and other times last names . Otherwise very enjoyable

worst book by this author to date

I've come to expect and even accept gross oversights in police procedure in the earlier books, but still enjoyed them. i'm done with this one after 5 chapters. It's incredibly boring, with the historical story, Duncan's crisis at home, and Gemma's unwarranted interferance in the affairs in Scotland. Gemma has never been my favorite character being childish, inconsiderate and self-centered in all of the books and this one is totally Gemma centered and she is basically hateful. She has always put herself above everyone else, including her child and this story is no exception. I'm glad it was this month's free offering or I would have had to return it.

Engaging in every way

Scottish Highlands setting, interesting characters beyond our core group and, best of all, a splendid narrator. Rushing off now to get the next one.

count how many times the word "Highlands" comes up

the plot was decent, but it was made abundantly clear that it was taking place in the "Highlands" to the point of being annoying
