Review: Death of a Bore by M.C. Beaton (Hamish Macbeth #21)

Minor writer John Heppel has a problem - he's by all accounts a consummate bore. When he's found dead in his cottage, there are plenty of suspects. But surely boredom shouldn't be cause for murder, or so thinks local bobby and sleuth Hamish Macbeth, whose investigation of Heppel's soap opera script uncovers much more than melodrama. Popular reader and actor Graeme Malcolm makes this intricate whodunit set in Beaton's beloved Scottish village a memorable audio experience. This is the newest title in the popular Hamish Macbeth series.

This was the unabridged audiobook on CD edition (5 CDs/5.25 hours).

I loved, loved, loved Hamish's cat! It was absolutely too perfect!

This one gets seven stars. It was a nice, fast read. Hamish and his romantic antics were amusing, as always. The reader Graeme Malcolm, was good as usual.

Rating: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆

I've had this series recommended to me but never picked one up. I'm definitely going to have to check it out on audio.
