Publisher's Summary

A crime of passion strikes close to home when Gemma and her best friend, Hazel Cavendish, travel to Scotland, a land of mists and fine whiskey, of hidden pasts and dangerous secrets, or so Gemma discovers when an unexpected meeting with Hazel's old flame yields shocking - and mortal - consequences.

Hazel is the logical suspect, but Gemma knows nothing is simple in this place of secrets and long-seething hatreds. As even more damning evidence piles up against the friend Gemma never truly knew, the investigation takes a darker, more sinister turn. Gemma knows she will need assistance to unravel this bloody knot. And so she calls the one man she can trust, Duncan Kincaid, to join her far from home and in harm's way.

Meh

Sometimes Ms. Crombie paints her women offensively simplistic. Our heroine is so hot-headed and reactionary, she seems very immature to me. Why would a dish like Duncan Kincaid bother with her, I find myself wondering. And every story leans heavily on the preconception that men never acknowledge the competence of women. As for dialogue, most suspects spend a lot of time braying, “but Inspector, you can’t think that I killed him!!.....blah, blah, blah.” These timeworn devices are tiresome to me, and really differentiate the literary writers from the pulp fiction writers. Because that is what this is — fodder for the recycle bin. Too bad, because the story was good, and descriptions of the beauty of Scotland are travel-inspiring.

Very enjoyable Audiobook. Recommended.

Excellent Audiobook, brilliantly narrated by Michael Deehy who has a talent for different accents. I originally read the hardback version, but Mr. Deehy’s skilled narration improved my appreciation and rating. Love the moodier setting in Scotland and a Highlands distillery, which included a refresher about single-malt Scotch whisky. Whilst reading I couldn’t resist sipping my favorite, “cult classic” Scotch whisky, sherry cask.

A Favorite

This is a third reading over many years’ time. I actually thought I remembered who did it and I was wrong. I enjoyed all the backstories, the Scottish location and, really, everything about it.

My favorite so far

I am enjoying this series though I skipped those that weren’t narrated my Michael Deehy. This complexity of this story as well as the historical information was great.

Best one yet!

I am enjoying this series more than I ever thought I would and Now May You Weep was the best so far. Mr. Deehy’s performance, as always, was brilliant!

Quite good

Almost gave it 5 stars bcz it was a good plot that managed a number of believable characters and possibilities that sustained interest to the end. Crombie managed to do all this without getting too schlocky or soap-opera-y UNTIL the last several chapters where she went fairly wild with hyper-drama. Sorry to see her give in to that . . . author's urge?

I'm blessed to have discovered Ms. Crombie's 📚

Beautiful Scotland Countryside and all the Whiskey history detailed in very specific traditional language! Amazing!

Not my fav

Enjoy the Kinkaid/Gemma stories but this one was irritating at times. It was the characters, they seemed a very immature, shallow unlikable bunch. Most irritating was their inability to actually finish a sentence! Indecisive, “oh my,shouldn’t have said that I’ll stop in mid-sentence”. Believe me you’ll see it often. This is a 30-40 yr old bunch but comes across ridiculously naive so the plot was effected greatly. Can’t win em all, have come to expect a little more character development in this series. Sure the next one will delight.
