Publisher's Summary

Sergeant Hamish Macbeth Scotland's most quick-witted but unambitious policeman is back and may have finally met the woman of his dreams in this new mystery in M.C. Beaton's beloved, New York Times best-selling series.

Hamish's new constable, Dorothy McIver, may be the most beautiful woman he's ever seen. Completely bewitched by her sparkling blue eyes, Hamish spends the summer traveling with her up and down Sutherland until finally, he can take it no longer. He gets down on one knee beside the Land Rover and begs her to marry him — and to his amazement and delight, she says yes.

But just as the town of Lochdubh gets ready to celebrate, Hamish finds himself with a new murder on his hands. If he doesn't find the killer fast, Hamish's dream wedding could become a nightmare.

Critic Reviews

"Longing for escape? Tired of waiting for Brigadoon to materialize? Time for a trip to Lochdubh, the scenic, if somnolent, village in the Scottish Highlands where M. C. Beaton sets her beguiling whodunits featuring Constable Hamish Macbeth." (New York Times Book Review)

"Hamish Macbeth is that most unusual character, one to whom the reader returns because of his charming flaws. May he never get promoted." (New York Journal of Books)

"With residents and a constable so authentic, it won't be long before tourists will be seeking Lochdubh and believing in the reality of Hamish Macbeth as surely as they believed in Sherlock Holmes." (Denver Rocky Mountain News)

Great to have more Hamish

I'm sure we all miss M. C. Beaton, may she rest in peace, but Rodd Green does an excellent job of telling her stories as she would herself. This one is especially good with lots of old favorite characters, many twists, and a powerful ending. Here's hoping R. W. Green carries on M. C. Beaton's legacy for years to come!

Not by the author M.C. Beaton.

Story doesn't stay true to the characters. When it takes place is confusing .

not M s. Beaton

From the first sentence, I sensed the change, which I found a bit jarring. Eventually, the story gained its flow snd kept my interest. A few things did not jibe with the previous portrayal of a couple of the characters. I hated the ending, so unlike the previous books.

Mixed feelings

Ok. first. The ONLY thing completely right is narration by incomparable wonderful Sir. Malcolm Graeme. I had already decided if he didn't, I would not have listened to it. That aside, my feelings on the book are mixed. I could tell that all of this was not the late great M.C. The book was good overall... but it sorely lacked the normal whit that your used to when visiting Loch dubh. The plot became too dark and sad to put a stain on our beloved fairy tale. That is not something I saw M. C. doing. Also die hard fans like myself know the characters like their my family. R. W. overly played this like he had to remind you everything fans would already know. It was a good read, and I do see why M. C. trusted him, and I also know he is not her, but if your going to carry on her legacy, then stick to it. M.C. knew what worked. Don't make it your own. I think only the next book that we know will all be R.W. with no collab with M.C. will tell if he gets it. The scence where Hamish's mother just gets back on the bus without being by her son's side??? That was NOT M.C. or reasonable...The next book will tell if Loch dubh is gone forever...

I so enjoyed the Hamish MacBeth series,. I stopped everything to listen to this. Such an interesting introduction - though I still felt a
bit as if M.C's ghost was with us as we started
the book.
If you buy this you may wonder Why as you hear the first few chapters. BUT stick with it and you'll find yourself in the Highlands with
the author: her village, friends and Hamish. You may find yourself making a quick search for "Wild Cat Scotland."
You will be charmed.

Hamish makes me happy!

This series never disappoints, and the voice of Graeme Malcolm again beautifully delivers the adventures of Hamish Macbeth, and makes me wish for a visit to the Scottish Highlands. As this book was completed after the death of M. C. Beaton, it must be noted that the story felt very true to her style and our dear Hamish. Well done!

Gets you in the feels!

This book had me all over the board with my emotions. I don't want to give anything away but believe me when I say you will be laughing, cheering, and crying.
The only thing I wish was that the book was longer because I definitely felt like there were so many aspects that should have been expanded and they would have greatly added to the story experience. So in a sense some things felt rushed while others felt like we definitely missed out on because they just weren't included or they were skimmed over.

A Must Read for Hamish fans!

This was a full blown novel—Hamish at his best, murder, crime, Blair, love, and heartbreak. If you are a Hamish fan, it is a must-read. Graham is my favorite of all readers, and is outstanding as always. Do not skip it!

Terrific

Everything was great on this one. Voice was true and mannerisms of all. Green did a good job with Hamish. I enjoyed the introduction of the American. Felt like he could be back in the future. Definitely exciting and puzzling and surprising!!! A winner!

Might be my favourite one yet

Oh, how I love this series when narrated by Graeme Malcolm. The interwoven love story in this instalment was wonderful. Hamish Macbeth is a hero, a gentleman, and a Highland treasure.
