Ellen was right just a nice light read. I would definitely read more of them. What characters! Hamish is the local town police man that is far more talented than job he does. His boss who resents the attention Hamish gets for solving crimes. Hamish also seems to have a thing for the ladies but feels no need to commit. One of the locals who cleans homes has been discovered murdered in the drive of her clients home. Hamish and his colleagues begin to investigate only to discover that this woman was not a terribly nice person. She had made enemies throughout the town including her own family. As they investigate bodies pile up and secrets are uncovered. Hamish runs a fowl of the local underworld boss and they make an attempt on his life as well. In the end the murders are solved but the threat remains. Will Hamish and Elisabeth ever get together or is there another woman on his horizon?
