5.0 out of 5 stars ANOTHER WONDERFUL COZY MYSTERY..., 6 Mar 2012
This review is from: Death of a Nag (Paperback)
Poor Constable Hamish Macbeth, as if it were not bad enough that he has been demoted, his engagement to the coolly beautiful Priscilla Halburton-Smythe is over, and the villagers of Lochdubh all blame him for the break-up. In hopes of putting some distance between himself and the villagers' hostility, Hamish decides to go on a holiday to the northern seaside village of Skag.

Hamish decides to stay at the Friendly boarding house, which is anything but that. There, Hamish endures unpleasant hosts who serve inedible food, as well as a motley crew of fellow guests. Of course, this would not be a mystery if someone were not murdered. So, it is no surprise when one of his fellow vacationers, an unpleasant fellow who delights in berating his fellow man, is the one to meet his maker. Unfortunately, Hamish becomes the number one suspect, given the fact that just prior to the victim's death, Hamish had an altercation with him.

This is the eleventh book in a series of cozy mysteries featuring lovable Highlander, Hamish Macbeth. The book is also laced with sly humor throughout that is engaging, keeping the mood of the book light and highly enjoyable. As with all cozy mysteries, it is not so much the mystery that is of import but the characters that revolve around the mystery. While the mysteries are intriguing, they are the framework around which the characters evolve. With the oddly endearing Hamish Macbeth, the author has created a character that keeps his many fans looking forward to the next book in the series.
