I received a copy of this book as a runner up prize (thanks GN), and also received Death of a Ghost, both by M C Beaton.
I was really looking forward to reading these as I had read and enjoyed the author’s Agatha Raisin series, but had not yet read any Hamish Macbeth. Sad to say, I was very disappointed in these books. Maybe I should start at the beginning as the first few books in a series are often better than the later, and these two were 32nd and 33rd. I found the humour to be very clunky, and whilst the plot almost believable, the characters were cartoonish (and so many of them!). I found it quite hard to keep up with things as so much was happening within a few pages. The turnover in policemen was unbelievable!
All in all, disappointing, as I’d been very much looking forward to reading them. A light read, but requiring much concentration to keep up with the plot.
