When society widow and gossip columnist Lady Jane Winters joined the fishing class, she wasted no time in ruffling the feathers-or was it the fins?-of those around her. Among the victims of her sharp tongue and unladylike manner was Lochdubh Constable Hamish Macbeth. Yet not even Hamish thought someone would permanently silence Lady Jane's shrills-until her strangled body is fished out of the river. Now with the help of the lovely Priscilla Halburton-Smythe, Hamish must angle through the choppy waters of the tattler's life to find the murderer. But with a school of suspects who aren't ready to talk and dead women telling no tales, Hamish may be in over his head, for he knows that secrets are dangerous, knowledge is power, and killers usually do strike again

My husband with Scottish ancestry has enjoyed this in a big way. He has been reading and talking about them for a few years while he read all. Now he needs a new author.

Dreadful! Badly written and utterly unbelievable. Total waste of my time getting it etc. Spent 10 minutes reading the beginning and I regret the waste.

The first volume of the Hamish Macbeth series. I don't normally go for cozy mysteries, but there's something about the humor in this series that appeals to me. Set in Highland Scotland, and featuring pleasantly quirky characters and mysteries that are never terribly sad or gruesome, it's a good comfort read.
