DEATH OF A VALENTINE by M.C. Beaton
This was a fun, cozy mystery. Hamish is a great character, a gruff sought after, handsome bachelor determined to stay that way. But he takes his police work seriously. The people of the village make for some interesting characters and I enjoyed the setting. The author gives the characters a Scottish brogue that adds to the atmosphere.
This is my first Hamish Macbeth mystery and I very much enjoyed it. I don't know if the author usually has a second plot but I enjoyed the crazy Josie story even if it was a bit over the top. There are 25 other Macbeth mysteries and this was the 24th, so I think I might go back to the beginning and enjoy this series.
my rating 4/5
