Gentle, charming but hardly mysterious,
This review is from: A Highland Christmas (Hamish Macbeth) (Hardcover)
My introduction to M C Beaton and her PC Hamish Macbeth. A missing cat, a stolen Christmas tree, a reclusive widow, an over-expectant school teacher, an officious Inspector, Calvinist parents, the residents of an old people's home - all are ingredients of a story told in (welcome) large type in just 164 pages. Easy to distinguish between the goodies and the baddies and to be charmed by the occasional conversion.
For hard-boiled mystery and detection it would be better to seek elsewhere. For an easy, undemanding holiday snack - recommended.
