4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not great, February 27, 2012
This review is from: Death of a Kingfisher (Hamish Macbeth Mysteries) (Hardcover)
I adore MC Beaton ( both her series ) and I was so excited to get my hands on this latest work by her
This is a good book- certainly very fast paced - but I miss some of the interactions with the classic Lochdubh characters
The mystery is a really good one - I will not give the plot away
But the mystery is only a small part of the charm of the Hamish Macbeth or Agatha Raisin series
MC Beaton may think her readers are bored with Jessie and Nessie or Angus the Seer
or the tweedy Mrs Wellington - but the truth is that we cannot get enough of them!
Lochdubh is a place I visit in my mind every time I read one MC Beaton's book
In this book - we just don't get enough of it

I agree with this review. I adore this series, but this particular book seemed a bit rushed and without the character details that are so much a part of the series' charm. I think more could have been done to develop the characters for the reader.
