Up there in this genre. Amusing, gentle (for a murder) and great character development of Hamish Macbeth, constable of tiny Highland village and his life.
Yes. Love his scottish interpretation and accent.
I will listen to more! Only wish I had done them in order.
Not very high
Where was Andrew when this took place? Not clear.
monotone (which helped one see Andrew's mental state)
It held my attention because I was looking for something to happen or some explanation of how he got to his current situation (whatever that was--prison?) Did he kill or harm the child drawing at the table on the farm? Who was "coming?" Why was he in Norway or was he?
Probably not-- very light weight though entertaining in parts
This is part of a series but I gather they don't follow this subject--just Phrynne the main character.
It is a good book to listen to when your mind doesn't want to be burdened. The heroine's sexual dalliances are gratuitous but obviously part of her persona. I thought at times I stumbled into a seamy romance novel.
If you like the usual Hamish books, this is not for you. Evil children (who remain on the loose) are only part of the problem. International crime, barely explained murders, all a jumble. Skip this one.
No, I think this was a aberration. All the other Hamish books have been quite entertaining, slyly amusing and calm.
I like his voice and portrayal. Good Scots accent.
Had bad dreams about it the night after I finished....unheard of for me.
Entertaining light mystery
A good mystery but no violence to speak of. Every one was quite civilized--even the murderer. (Especially the murderer)
When Dorothy and friends were prowling around the offices where she was a fake receptionist to find evidence to accuse a murderer
Typical "cottage" type English mystery except the heroine is American by birth and this took place in London. Have enjoyed her other books very much which on the whole I liked better.
Character development was a bit weak in some instances.
