Poor Hamish. He just cannot win. Every time he does a good deed, he gets called lazy. When he is up all night and trying to catch a few minutes sleep before returning to work, he's a lay-a-bed. He reaches out to steady a woman, and the woman he loves assumes he is in love with the other woman. What I mean is I adore Hamish and identify with him.
Lovely scenery. Great character development--although a little hard on people in general and harsh on teenage girls. EVIL character which, ashamedly, we rejoice when she is found dead. A very cozy mystery that can be read in a single sitting (with a break for lunch) about 5 hours total reading time.
Many of these are also available as audio books. Best read in order.

My husband with Scottish ancestry has enjoyed this in a big way. He has been reading and talking about them for a few years while he read all. Now he needs a new author.

Dreadful! Badly written and utterly unbelievable. Total waste of my time getting it etc. Spent 10 minutes reading the beginning and I regret the waste.

The first volume of the Hamish Macbeth series. I don't normally go for cozy mysteries, but there's something about the humor in this series that appeals to me. Set in Highland Scotland, and featuring pleasantly quirky characters and mysteries that are never terribly sad or gruesome, it's a good comfort read.
