Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Trixie Thomas, a relentlessly do-gooding Englishwoman arrives in Lochdubh, stirs up trouble, and is promptly killed, her missionary zeal leaving a host of suspects in her wake. Fortunately, Hamish is on hand to find the killer before such unseemly behavior has a chance to spoil the atmosphere.” Booklist (starred review)
“As the pace of the merry tale quickens, gentle Hamish draws nearer to exposing the surprising killer whose motive is far different from what he expects.” Publishers Weekly
“Lively sketches of local characters and village ways. Hamish and Lochdubh continue to charm in a gentle entertainment.” Kirkus Reviews
“Prepare to be entertained…Recommended for all mystery collections.” Library Journal
