Publisher's Summary

In the dark, wintry highlands of Lochdubh, Scotland, where the local Calvinist element resists the secular trimmings of Christmas, the spirit of old Saint Nick is about as welcome as a flat tire on a deserted road. Nor is crime taking a holiday, as Constable Hamish Macbeth soon finds himself protecting an unhappy girl, unlocking the secrets of a frightened old woman, and retrieving some stolen holiday goods. Now the lanky lawman must use all his Highland charm and detective skills to make things right. And he had better do it quickly, for the church bells will soon toll and all Lochdubh will be forced to face another dreary winter without the comforting embrace of Yuletide cheer.

Short & Sweet

Have never read this author before. Really liked the read. You left with a good feeling. While not very long, it did what it needed to do.

Just fun

MC Beaton is tricky- simple stories are carried in beautiful little turns of phrase. This is a good hearted tale with a good hearted hero. Just enjoy it!
