it was amazing
bookshelves: fun, mystery, fan

A nasty old fat tabloid reporter reveals others' guilty secrets. Which victim was provoked enough to strangle and drown her? I remembered who and why, but not the reveal, and savor re-reading descriptions. Much is from the viewpoint of the naive secretary seduced by the blue-blood playboy, rather than hero, Scottish highland cop Hamish Macbeth.

Reader may grin, snicker, and sigh in sympathy with the not-so stereotypes. Outwardly slow simple, inwardly clever cunning, generous Macbeth also poaches, insults, and hides under his beloved's covers. Distinctive shock of red hair on six foot gangly lanky scarecrow somehow attracts a bevy of susceptible beauties, even icy cool blond Priscilla Haliburton Smythe.

The series are holidays for me, inspired by author's own visits, quick reads full of action, mystery https://www.goodreads.com/review/show..., and lively eccentrics https://www.goodreads.com/review/show..., like Chesney-Beaton's previous so-called romances https://www.goodreads.com/review/show....
