Lovereading view...

Amazing news is spreading like wildfire across the Scottish countryside: the most famous of all Highland bachelors, police sergeant Hamish Macbeth, is planning to marry at last. Everyone in the village of Lochdubh adores Josie McSween, Hamish's newest constable and blushing bride-to-be but perhaps Hamish Macbeth's pre-nup jitters shouldn't be ignored?

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

Death of a Valentine by M. C. Beaton

If it wasn't for the recent murder of a beautiful woman in a neighbouring village police sergeant Hamish Macbeth wouldn't be getting married. For it was a mysterious Valentine's Day card - delivered to the victim before her death - which initially drew Hamish and Josie together in the investigation. And now, as they work side by side, they soon discover that the woman's list of admirers was endless - confirming Hamish's suspicion that love can be deaf, blind...and deadly.

The much-loved Hamish Macbeth series... beguiling blend of wry humour and sharp observations about rural life. Good Book Guide It's always a special treat to return to Lochdubh. New York Times Book Review The detective novels of M C Beaton, a master of outrageous black comedy, have reached cult status. -- Anne Robinson The Times Another highly entertaining read from MC Beaton. Woman's Way Smart, acerbic and wonderfully diverting. Good Book Guide



About the Author

M. C. Beaton

M. C. Beaton is the renowned bestselling author of the Hamish Macbeth and Agatha Raisin series. She has written many detective and romance novels alongside having an illustrious career on Fleet Street. Already a household name and, according to Anne Robinson, a ‘national treasure’, she is ranked among John Grisham and Maeve Binchy as a heavyweight of the publishing world. She divides her time between Paris and a village in the Cotswolds that is very much like Agatha's beloved Carsely.

    When I get back from Scotland, if I am still in one piece, I have been invited to see the filming of Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death.

    RT @StuartMacBride: @mc_beaton I feel much the same way about 'gritty'.

    Are you comparing yourself to Agatha Christie, you vain cow? Not really, but I hope you get the point.

    Fed up being referred to as a ‘cosy’ writer. Sounds so patronising. No one ever called village mystery writers like Agatha Christie ‘cosy.’
