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?

If you like M. C. Beaton you might also like to read books by Loretta Chase, Georgette Heyer and Carola Dunn.

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.

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.
