Best M C Beaton yet,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Death of a Gentle Lady (Hamish Macbeth) (Hardcover)
having followed M C Beaton's Agatha Raisin and Hamish Macbeth on each and every of their adventures and tried solving all their cases well before the story is given away at the end of the book, I took this book with me on holiday to Italy. I am glad I saved it for this special time, as I could not stop reading it once I started. The old characters are at their best (or worst), new characters are introduced and with relish you follow their antiques. I loved the twists and turns, the clever and witty story line and the little surprises that Mrs. Chesney has put into this book. Lying on the beach, taking in this book and giggling from time to time like an idiot got me a couple of very strange looks, but it was worth it! My husband and I have each finished reading the whole book in one day. Once you start, you will not be able to put it down. Says it all, doesn't it?
