    Constable Hamish Macbeth may take a holiday, but, of course, murder never does.While taking a cheap holiday from Lochdubh, Hamish stays at a boarding house from hell in a town even farther north in Scotland called Skag A perfectly dreadful Englishman, Bob Harris, unites the other holiday makers against him as he berates his poor wife and makes himself unpleasant to all and sundry in his drunken binges When Harris turns up murdered, there s no end of suspects.After the disappointing Death of a Constable Hamish Macbeth may take a holiday, but, of course, murder never does.While taking a cheap holiday from Lochdubh, Hamish stays at a boarding house from hell in a town even farther north in Scotland called Skag A perfectly dreadful Englishman, Bob Harris, unites the other holiday makers against him as he berates his poor wife and makes himself unpleasant to all and sundry in his drunken binges When Harris turns up murdered, there s no end of suspects.After the disappointing Death of a Charming Man, M.C Beaton has written a muchplausible and less contrived mystery in Death of a Nag, and the denouement is both touching and a clever twist All in all, it s a breezy read for idle weekend

    While I m a longtime Beaton fan, this book feels like it was written by a ghostwriter The caper took place out of town, making the usual familiar characters appearance slim The book was an audio version and many characters were read with such a hard accent, I replayed and then quit at the 75% point because I didn t care how it ended.

    I ve only read a few in this series, in fact not even in order which is not how I usually read series but not all are available at our library This is my favorite so far and in my opinion the supporting characters are very well written.Hamish has broken up with Priscilla and is feeling depressed so he decides to take a vacation The B B that he stays at has terrible food and isn t nice at all although he grows attached to some of the other vacationers staying there But all is not as it seems I ve only read a few in this series, in fact not even in order which is not how I usually read series but not all are available at our library This is my favorite so far and in my opinion the supporting characters are very well written.Hamish has broken up with Priscilla and is feeling depressed so he decides to take a vacation The B B that he stays at has terrible food and isn t nice at all although he grows attached to some of the other vacationers staying there But all is not as it seems and soon there is a murder to be investigated Hamish seems muchvulnerable in this story and I m growing quite fond of him Plus there were some twists and turns in the plot that I didn t anticipate which always makes for afun read I like that the author doesn t shy away from social issues and the emotional problems that most people deal with in their relationships

    First time I have read Hamish Macbeth have enjoyed MC Beaton before but the gentle Agatha Raisin books Hamish takes a holiday to the Scottish town of Skag in a truly awful B and B during his stay there is a murder that he is able to use his detective skills to investigate loved the characters perfect book to read with a pot of tea and scone
