Death of a Nurse ~~ M.C. Beaton

Death of a Nurse by M.C. Beaton
M. C. Beaton's New York Times bestselling Hamish Macbeth series continues with a new mystery featuring Scotland's most quick-witted but unambitious policeman.

James Harrison has recently moved to a restored hunting lodge in Sutherland with his gorgeous private nurse Gloria Dainty. When Hamish visits Mr. Harrison to welcome him to the neighborhood, the old man treats him very rudely. Gloria apologizes for her employer's behavior, and Hamish takes the plunge and invites her out for dinner. On the appointed evening, Hamish waits for Gloria at the restaurant. And waits. Gloria never shows up. Four days later, Gloria's body washes up on the beach near Braikie. Now without a date and without his former policeman Dick Fraser (who left the force to buy a bakery), Hamish must find out who killed the beautiful new resident of Sutherland, and why, before the murderer strikes again....

3 1/2 stars! I have been disappointed lately with the Hamish Macbeth series. The earlier books in the series are little treasures, and I used to look forward to the next book coming out. In the recent past (the last 3 or 4 years) the books weren't as enjoyable as they were rushed and very disjointed. This book is better, although time certainly flies within the 265 pages. For those not in the know, Hamish Macbeth is a police sergeant located in the picturesque little town of Lochdubh in the Scottish highlands. He loves his quiet life in the little village, even though his beat has grown considerably since he took up residence there. For such a little place, there is a lot of murder and crime and Hamish uses his considerable intelligence, along with his thorough knowledge of the area to solve very difficult and tricky mysteries. I love the characters in sleepy little Lochdubh - Archie the seer, the hilarious Currie sisters, the minister's very loud and obnoxious wife and of course Hamish himself . This book has all of this, and another tricky little mystery which Hamish manages to crack. I enjoyed this book and am glad that I stuck with the series.
