    2. I needed a laugh and where do I find it in a mystery read M.C Beaton s Hamish MacBeth crime adventure series This one gave me the laughs while keeping me interested in the crime solving of a few cases Hamish can be such a brainless man when it comes to women and love, but he s got that Highlander s canny sense for liars and criminals Beaton creates real characters like in life when you come along and meet an unusual person and even if you don t like her or him, are drawn to their peculiarities T [...]


    3. This was a bizarre, but entertaining entry in the Hamish Macbeth series by M.C Beaton Both my mother in law and I love these books and we are steadily working our way through them They are fun, quick reads and we ve grown attached to the characters This story had a lot of sub plots, almost too many to keep track of, but the story of the geriatric sleuths was my favorite On to the next storyw word usquebae


    4. I ve enjoyed two seasons of BBC s beautifully photographed and written Hamish Macbeth with a stunningly good cast including Robert Carlyle and Shirley Henderson A reader pointed out to me there was an entire series of books with Hamish, and I relished this one sit reading It s an English cozy but veers slightly toward the police procedural genre, as we have crimes investigated not by Miss Marple although in a way she makes an appearance but by a real police staff And in Village , we have not one [...]


    5. I wish there were half stars I would give this 2.5 This story was very cute, reminded me of the old fashioned mystery stories that my aunt used to love reading I really do like Hamish Macbeth, the characters he interacts with, and the descriptions of the quaint Scottish villages in which the story took place I felt as though there were almost too many stories within the story which mystery are you trying to solve the insurance fraud, the old folks home, the pirates I was expecting a bit of a ti [...]



    6. May be most all round dangerous of series doped drinks, guns, fire, explosion, chase in the end, the whole village of Stoyre Real issues of abuse Romance is pure fun Plus silliness elsewhere Hamish accepts Angela s coffee, quickly adding black after noticing that one of the cats had its head in the milk jug p 191 You d think the word of a policeman would count for something these days p 23 Constable Hamish Macbeth 30s p 29 eyes how sweeping brush marks p 22 change dusty floor where shopkeeper c [...]


    7. There is something deliciously ironic about a Scottish Macbeth who is completely lacking in ambition A Macbeth who flees from the spotlight magnetically attracted to his penchant for saving lives M.C Beaton s Hamish Macbeth is a police officer in a small village in the Highlands of Scotland His worst fear is that he ll be promoted and will no longer be able to enjoy the quiet surroundings in which his skills are greatly needed In Death of a Village, Macbeth believes something creepy is going on [...]


    8. Another high profile case for Hamish His curiosity and pride are some day going to lead him into a promotion he cannot avoid It s almost at that point now, as he goes to quite mad lengths to put his superiors off the notion of moving him to Strathbane or Glasgow I can t imagine what scheme he ll be forced to try next.It s all his own fault, as this book is full to bursting with cases Hamish quickly solves right under the noses of his superior officers Maybe instead of having puffed up meetings a [...]


    9. I m giving it five stars with a warning.Hamish changes in this book He s grumpy He s rude and because of his initial relationship with Priscilla, he now tars the entire gender with the same brush which edges on misogyny Really Hamish Lanky, easy going Hamish Macbeth I waited for the shift but it didn t happen I m actually hesitant to pick up the next book and may have to skip out of Scotland for a bit before I read that he s about to become a irrascible ol Highlander.Aside from that, the plot li [...]


    10. Another delightful Hamish Macbeth mystery The author is able to make villages and hamlets and their people come to life with all their quirkiness and amusing personality traits Poor Hamish just doesn t have a clue when it comes to the ladies but there are plenty of gossips who think he is a real ladies man I love reading how the author describes the sea in each mystery makes one want to hear the crash of waves and feel the spray and force of the wind for themselves.


    11. I DO so love reading about Hamish Macbeth, the gangling Scottish policeman who finds it easier to solve crimes than to avoid promotion This series is always a fun read with well developed characters This one was, perhaps a little bit grim than some of the otheres I ve read due to a sub plot about a home for the elderly, but, all in all, the usual exciting romp through the Highlands.


    12. 2.5 stars Gracious There were 5 different cases, or less interlocking, as well as 2 daring rescues on Macbeth s part Oh, and 2 different dogs get knocked on the head It was all rather muddled.


    13. This is one of the best books in this series so far Although It is another wacky highland adventure, I just loved the little bit of darkness that crept into the book I hope this is indicative of how the series will be developing.


    14. Hamish Macbeth is a reluctant hero in M.C Beaton s Hamish Macbeth Mysteries In this installment, his attention is caught by some strange goings on in one of the local villages on his patrol As he begins to poke around, other strange events begin to unfold in the area Wondering if they are connected by than just chance, Macbeth soon finds himself unbroiled in one dangerous situation after another Casualties abound, and Macbeth can only hope to protect those most dear to him, including his dog Lu [...]


    15. Hamish MacBeth is busier and successful at least in his police work than ever He solves an insurance fraud, a series of nursing home murders, finds a missing child, and discovers the secret the village of Stoyre is hiding He even performs a daring rescue And yet as the most unambitious policeman in history, he also manages to avoid the dreaded promotion Alas He is much less successful in love, and despite his growing attraction to Elspeth, his inability to communicate with her, and village goss [...]


    16. Hamish is a cluck when it comes to the ladies but they too are close to him in confused urges and short tempers,bushes of their own to beat around, as wello.This story was tolerably interesting in how it fits into the overall sequence canon at a rather key spot wherein his declining motivations and ambitions picture are bogged up and down but when the range of crimes and adventures seem to pop up at every turn on every coast and with violence, explosions and dreadful misadventures These serve to [...]


    17. Death of a Village is another of the Hamish Macbeth mysteries by M.C.Beaton Hamish is a constable in a small village in Scotland He has a small croft and the his job as a peace officer is only troublesome in that his success may lead to promotions which would force him to leave the village of Lochdubh This story includes a couple of murders, a house being blown up, an entire village acting oddly and a hurricane There was but I won t give it away It gets better as the story goes along and is qui [...]


    18. This one had an apocalyptic aspect to it, and an old pirate mystery, and some derring do by Hamish Also, it s from 2003 but some sentences resonate in 2017 The way propaganda works, as every schoolboy knows,is that if you say the same thing over and over again, lie or not, people begin to believe it And, The world will move on,and Stoyre will be forgotten Isn t it sad that we only get upset abut nasty things happening to people and places if television decides we should


    19. M.C Beaton has really blossomed as she s written this series, and this is a very good one I thoroughly enjoyed the story, although the mysterious thing was a little overdone, but the relationships between the people had me laughing out loud than once, and there was even a little gore in this one If you re not a fan already, you might want to start sooner in the series to truly appreciate the humor of the relationship between Hamish and Elspeth, and the last chapter is hilarious.


    20. This one was quite interesting It started out as a series of seemingly random cases being worked and solved by Hamish with the assistance of his new friend, Elspeth, the local reporter and astrologer They were all interesting and I like these books for the character development and fun surrounding cast as well as the mystery, so it was all fine But then it started twisting into a larger scenario that ended up quite satisfying with some danger and mayhem So fun to listen to this one.


    21. An excellent installment of the Hamish Macbeth series I listened to the audiobook narrated by Graham Malcom The narrator was a joy to listen to as he did the character of Hamish justice This book has several mini mysteries as well as the overarching mystery to keep the reader or listener engaged throughout.


    22. Alas, Hamish has ceased to be charming in this book Luckily, other characters pick up the slack, and finally endear themselves to me And, also, luckily, there is not a repeat of the Towser incident This book was a bit all over the place, and yet it still kind of worked Maybe because life in a village can be a bit all over the place, and still kind of work.


    23. Easily the best so far, for me A real mystery that was intriguing, and plenty of action It actually felt like an homage to Blyton s Famous Five series done right If this instalment marks a return to form, the next few could be fun.


    24. This book was a little different from most Hamish Macbeth books in that there are two major crimes happening at once For some reason, I didn t like to book as well as I have liked others in this series.


    25. There a strange bunch in stoyre, the villagers are uncommunnicative and Hamish knows that something is going on Just how much are the villagers prepared to do to keep their secrets.


    26. Hamish is a tonic for a stressful day Leave worries behind and enter the hamlet of the Highlands and the villagers This was one with MANY different mysteries.




    27. This is one my favorites It had side mysteries, and the plot line kept changing enough to really hold my attention.
