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.
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.
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.
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.
