A Tommel Castle, l’hotel di lusso diretto da Priscilla, grande amore non confessato di Hamish Macbeth, si danno appuntamento otto soci di un club per single, col desiderio manifesto di trovare la dolce metà. Nonostante Maria Worth, l’agente che li ha riuniti, pensi di aver fatto un buon lavoro, gli otto iniziano ben presto a detestarsi. Tra i più odiati c’è Peta, la golosissima e piuttosto maleducata socia in affari di Maria. Nel corso di uno degli appuntamenti combinati, Peta cade vittima di omicidio e viene ritrovata morta con una mela rossa ficcata in bocca. Il colpevole si nasconde tra gli altri single riuniti al castello? Alle indagini di Hamish l’ardua sentenza.

This series, despite this dip in form, still holds the promise of riches to come. I do get the impression however, that just like Pyramid schemes weren't invented in Egypt, these accents of the Scottish brogue sound dreadfully fake as a nose job.

Hmmm. I'm not really enjoying this much. I have heard the tv show is good, so I thought I'd give the novel a try. The characters are not very interesting or believable. The depiction of the glutton is one of the most hate-filled portrayals I've ever read. The character is so repulsive and the author Leggi tutto
Literary potato chips — can’t read just one, delicious going down, lots of empty calories to regret later.
The Great M.C. Beaton created some wonderful characters and I often wonder if they were waiting for her in heaven so she can finally be near them. If so, she and Hamish are having a lot of fun, I'm sure. They are probably fishing in a loch and drinking a pint at a local pub. So in this installment
I still love Hamish and the village of Lochdubh but I'll never call this one of my favorites.
