  • Sounds exciting

    The characters were a little silly. A little too much about fishing. I kept falling asleep while reading.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Re-starting the series.

    I've long been a fan of Hamish Macbeth, and re-reading the first volume has been fun. First-time readers will get a good introduction to the series, and ling-tome fans will enjoy getting reacquainted with the characters and setting.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • It shows its age

    A slow beginning to a series. I’ve been a fan of Ms. Beaton’s Agatha Raisin series and was expecting something in a similar vein but this one is different in style. I thought Hamish MacBeth might be similar to Martin Walker’s Bruno, chief of police but where Bruno is always up to join every activity, Hamish seems to avoid making any efforts. The plot is well done though if a bit old-fashioned. To begin with, the book is set in the early 80s and many of the stereotypes of the time are heavily represented in the plot. There’s the obvious cast of characters that tick all the boxes of the aforementioned stereotypes starting with the wee goose with her head filled with the idea that love is like a romance novel. As mentioned before, the plot is well done and, even I the mystery fan, I could not identify the culprit before nearly the end, which is a rare occurrence nowadays. What irked me a little was the stereotypes and the lengthy descriptions of fishing. Overall, I have hope that the series gets better and more up to date as it progresses towards the 21st century.

    Thanks for your feedback!
