Revue de presse

An enchanting series... M C Beaton has a foolproof plot for the village mystery. --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

Présentation de l'éditeur

Murder in Paradise...

When Jane Wetherby offers PC Hamish Macbeth a holiday at her 'Happy Wanderer' health farm on the isle of Eileencraig, he is more than happy to accept.

Unfortunately the visit doesn't prove to be the pampering experience he had been hoping for. Windswept Eileencraig is inhabited by hostile islanders, many of whom would be more than happy to be rid of the 'Happy Wanderer' and its proprietor.

And the company at the health farm is hardly better. The volatile party includes an ex-husband, an illicit lover, and Morag Todd, an unadulterated snob who criticizes everybody and everything. So when Morag is found lying at the foot of a cliff with a broken neck, no one seems too broken up about the event - leaving it up to Hamish to solve the death of a snob.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Series is getting better and better. 9 mai 2016
Par JJ - Publié sur

With this book, this series finally becomes a very interesting one. To me it still compares not favorably with the Agatha Raisin series but I am enjoying the books more. One thing that struck me about this book was the tragedy of Hamish's situation. He is the much older sibling with several much younger siblings so is doomed by tradition to help support all those kids as well as his parents. He does this without any compalint at all and lives in poverty in spite of his job as a small town copper as they call him. In this book with Christmas coming he is lonely and looking forward to going to spend Christmas with his family but his mother tells him not to come because one of his aunts is coming and she doesn't like Hamish. The author makes very little of this and Hamish accepts it in his usual humble way but it just struck me as horrible. I'm sure that aunt doesn't contribute one cent to the upkeep of that family but Hamish who sends almost every dime he makes back home is denied Christmas with the family that he sacrifices to support. I guess the author made it a small thing in the book in order to give more insight into Hamish's character. This is a very good mystery with a surprise "who done it".

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another "Winner" from M.C. Beaton 5 juillet 2014

Although this is one of the earlier Hamish Macbeth books it is typical of the combination of superb mystery writing and wonderful humor that permeate this series by M.C. Beaton. Even though they vary in content, the series is a treat for anyone who enjoys mysteries and humor. My husband, who has not done much reading for enjoyment in MANY years, is sharing my addiction to the Hamish Macbeth books. I have gone through all the books available in our local library and purchased five that were not available for my Kindle. If you enjoy light reading during the summer this is the series for you. However, there is one caveat - the books tend to be addicting! I have almost finished the series of 31 books. I'm sure that once through the books won't be enough and the ones on my Kindle will be reread multiple times.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fun series. Treat yourself and read them all 17 juillet 2015

Beaton's books are always quick, clever, and highly entertaining. I was surprised at how invested I've become in the series characters. Despite the fast read, Beaton manages to build a complex, 3-dimensional protagonist that you are compelled to root for--and read about. Over and over.
Fun series. Treat yourself and read them all; you won't be sorry.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 We need more like him in this world 12 juillet 2015

Hamish MacBeth seems, on the surface, to be non-complex. However, his depth of self-realized, but also self-deprecating and balanced character, is admirable. He values other's opinions, some of which discount his depth and which cause him to self-criticize when he needn't do so. We need more like him in this world. He is a delight and because he is not caught up in his own ego, he is able to make a difference in the lives of others. Plus he admires cats and dogs. Does it get any better?

It is Christmas time in Lochdubh, and the village constable, Hamish Macbeth, is laid low with a cold with no one to comfort him but his dog, Towser. Feeling sorry for himself, as he will be unable to visit his family for the holidays due to a change in circumstances, Hamish is also suffering the holiday blues.

When a visiting friend of Priscilla Halburton-Smythe, Jane Wetherby, who runs a health farm on the remote and lonely Scottish island of Eileencraig, stops by for his professional advice, because she believes someone is trying to kill her, Hamish is all ears. Having no holiday plans, Hamish agrees to spend time at the health farm with some of her paying guests, even though he believes Jane is a little wacky.

Soon, Hamish is off to Eileencraig with Jane. Upon their arrival, they are greeted by sullen, unfriendly islanders. The guests at the health farm are no great improvement, as they clearly have issues with each other. One in particular, Heather Todd, is totally obnoxious and a dreadful snob. So, when Heather goes missing and is discovered to have met an untimely end, Hamish is not surprised. His only concern is to discover who the murderer is, before it is too late.

This is the sixth book in a series of cozy mysteries featuring lovable Highlander, Hamish Macbeth. The book is laced with sly humor throughout that is engaging, and the dialogue creates a feeling of authenticity of place, making the book highly enjoyable. As with all cozy mysteries, it is not so much the mystery that is of import but the characters that revolve around the mystery, and with the oddly endearing Hamish Macbeth, the author has created a character that is a winner. I love this series of cozy mysteries!
