Publisher's Summary

When the townspeople of Lochdubh begin receiving poison-pen letters, no one takes them very seriously, even if they are full of wild accusations. But Hamish fears that they might lead to something deadly. His instincts prove correct when the town's postmistress is found hanging from a rope with a poison-pen letter at her feet. Though it appears to be a suicide, Hamish suspects something more sinister. Attempting to trace the letters, the last thing Hamish needs is any distractions, but soon Jenny Ogilvie arrives in Lochdubh determined to seduce him. Realizing that she is unable to take Hamish's mind off his case, Jenny decides to do a little investigating of her own. Hamish finds himself in a race to solve the mystery of the poison-pen letters before someone else dies, including one likely target - Jenny.

    "Continuity Issue"

    When Hamish was in Braikie he mentioned that the once Dentist's office was now Law Office and he remember the old man, Fred Sutherland, who lived upstairs and wondered if he were still there so climbed the stairs to see. This was referencing Death of a Dentist. However, in that book the old man was
    murdered by killer because he had discovered some information that Mr. Sutherland talked about at the old folks social. It was something that MC Beaton should not have confused because Hamish was that distraught by the old man's murder because he, Hamish, had asked the old man to listen out for any information for him and if he hadn't done that the old man would not have died.

    "Good Yarn."

    I like this series and have been reading it for years. Some of the books I have in print. Others I listen to on Audible.

    "Entertaining- Worth the Listen"

    I read the book a few years back and purchased audio not realizing I had read it. I enjoyed the listen and loved the narrator's voices and story telling.

    The story is interesting, characters colorful- fun series
