Publisher's Summary

Occasionally, the rugged landscape of Scotland attracts dreamers who move north, wrapped in fantasies of enjoying the simple life. They usually don't last, defeated by the climate or by inhospitable locals. But it looks as if Effie Garrand has come to stay. When local constable Hamish Macbeth calls on her, he is amazed to find the small woman still in residence after a particularly hideous winter. Unfortunately, Effie is also quite delusional, having convinced herself and everyone else that local artist Jock Fleming is in love with her, and that they are engaged.
After a huge fight with Jock, Effie is found in the mountains, poisoned by hemlock. Now, it's up to Hamish to find the dreamer's killer before any more nightmares unfold.


What the Critics Say

A warm and welcome place

I just love M.C. Beaton's Hamish Macbeth series! I can't get enough of them. I've read them all and I love the audio books as well. Death of a Dreamer is not a disappointment if you love Hamish.

Yep, a good one

Excellent narration, story, and character development. You will be in Scotland and enjoy the people and environment as the mystery evolves and gives up its secrets.

I am difficult to please, but this one is superb.
