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, and lively eccentrics, like Chesney-Beaton's previous so-called romances
