The story was soooo unbelievable with a plot that was a total stretch. Hamish is a fairly good character but he's placed in such unbelievable situations that you just want him to go away. The reader was fine but that's not enough to compensate for this silly story.
The Hamish Macbeth books, like her Agatha Raisin ones, are not literature. What they are is little books with loveable characters that you get addicted to.
MC Beaton has her writing ticks, phrases and little plot devices that pop up over and over again but we don't mind because the books are light and easy. The scenery is nice and we just gloss over the flaws.
This book though, with its over-inticate plot of drug dealers, psychotic youth and God knows what else, pushed the boundaries too far. It got preposterous and she just isn't a good enough writer to do this.
Hopefully the next book with stay somewhere within the realms of stretchy credulity. With Hamish stuck in Lochbubh with a plot not gleamed from too much tv
