Death of a Dreamer ~~ M.C. Beaton

Death of a Dreamer by M.C. Beaton

In the Highlands village of Lochdubh, every season has its special flavor. Lanky, red-haired constable Hamish Macbeth relishes them all, but spring is the grandest. Now the winter storms have blown out to sea, the loch is smooth as glass, and Macbeth is content with his dog, cat, and cup of tea...until his quiet life is shattered by a shocking death. High up in the mountains, the body of eccentric dreamer Effie Garrard has been found. The authorities are quick to close the case as a suicide -- yet Macbeth thinks she was murdered. But after several of his ex-girlfriends come to town, the constable becomes very distracted in his investigation of Effie's demise. And now in danger of dreaming too much himself, Macbeth may miss a very real killer who will give him the nightmare of his life...

Brief Description:

This is a book that you can read in an afternoon because it is a short book and filled with all kinds of interesting characters. I love the way poor Hamish has trouble with the women. I really loved every minute of this book. It had the regular towns people of Lochdubh as well as some incomers. Of course the incomers are the ones that always get into trouble and it is up to Hamish to sort it all out. Blair was injured at the very beginning of the book, so wasn't in this book too much. Jimmy was in charge and left Hamish to his own way of doing things.

Some interesting things happened in this one to set-up the next one. I really like the addition of the cat that plays with Lugs. There are just so many interesting characters, I keep reading the series to see what each one is up too. I am giving this 5 out of 5 stars and can't wait to read the next one.
