Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"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 bestselling 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. "-- Provided by publisher.

    *Starred Review* In this thirty-sixth Hamish Macbeth mystery since Beaton launched the series in 1985, everything is going swimmingly for Sergeant Macbeth, who wants nothing more than to stay in his tiny cottage in the village of Lochdubh in the Highlands, tending chickens and sheep and solving the occasional crime. His nemesis, the sadistic Detective Chief Inspector Blair, has been removed to Glasgow, and Macbeth has fallen head over heels for Dorothy McIver, the new constable assigned to him. But trouble comes roaring into town off the North Coast 500 highway when a Glasgow man is found shot through the head in his car at the local petrol station. Murder, attempted murder, and arson follow, all spanning from a powerful Glasgow crime family expanding north. The fact that Macbeth has a new recruit makes for some terrific comic moments (reminiscent of All Creatures Great and Small) as Macbeth introduces Dorothy to the somewhat loony locals. It also expands the reader's world beyond Lochdubh to all around the Highlands, as Macbeth and Dorothy explore castles, lochs, and mountains. In a foreword, writer R. W. Green explains how he collaborated with Beaton on this book before her death in 2019; he indicates that Beaton left him (and fans) with more ideas for the series. Long live Macbeth, Sergeant of Scotland! Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
