"Murder Most Fowl When Priscilla Halburton-Smythe brings her London playwright fiance home to Lochdubh, everybody in town is delighted...except for love-smitten Constable Hamish Macbeth. Yet his affairs of the heart will have to wait. Vile, boorish Captain Bartlett, one of the guests at Priscilla's engagement party, has just been found murdered-shot while on a grouse hunt. Now with many titled party guests as the prime suspects, each with a reason for snuffing out the despicable captain, Hamish must smooth ruffled feathers as he investigates the case. When the hidden culprit strikes again, Hamish will find himself trying to save Priscilla from a miserable marriage-and catch a killer before he flies the coop" -- Cover verso.

My first book by M. C. Beaton.
Looking forward to reading the rest of the Hamish Macbeth series.

#2 Hamish Macbeth series. Enjoyed this much more then Death of a Bore, which I read first thinking that it was the first in the series. I think that the main character, Hamish Macbeth, will be easier to understand if I read the series in order. A quick easy read with a dash of humor.
