Death of a Nurse
Death of a Nurse | M. C. Beaton
8 posts | 12 read | 5 to read
M. C. Beaton's New York Times bestselling Hamish Macbeth series continues with a new mystery featuring Scotland's most quick-witted but unambitious policeman. James Harrison has recently moved to a restored hunting lodge in Sutherland with his gorgeous private nurse Gloria Dainty. When Hamish visits Mr. Harrison to welcome him to the neighborhood, the old man treats him very rudely. Gloria apologizes for her employer's behavior, and Hamish takes the plunge and invites her out for dinner. On the appointed evening, Hamish waits for Gloria at the restaurant. And waits. Gloria never shows up. Four days later, Gloria's body washes up on the beach near Braikie. Now without a date and without his former policeman Dick Fraser (who left the force to buy a bakery), Hamish must find out who killed the beautiful new resident of Sutherland, and why, before the murderer strikes again....

Great story line in this one! Easy to read and straightforward, not too many twists in the story to confuse things!
A very sad moment for me when Hamish said goodbye to Sonsie though..

Okay...this made me laugh! “I am afraid my secretary has left for the evening. Not that she would be much good. She has pictures of David Bowie painted on her nails and that seems to go along with lethargy and inefficiency.” I love nail art and David Bowie and now I want his pic on my nails!! :)

Get these from the library but I'm sure I've read the Kate book -- haven't I @MrsMalaprop . 😊. The M.C Beaton book I picked quickly thinking it was her Agatha Raisin series which I prefer. Both series light , fluffy reads. Sort of enjoyed this one. Loved Hamish in the TV series. Off to the library to return and get something else to read. Might check out a couple of op/ charity shops as well. 😊📚

MrsMalaprop Yes, we did it for book club last year 😊👏. I loved it. 3y

Fourth book from the #24in48 readathon. Maybe it was reading a few Beaton's back to back, but while I enjoyed reading this one, I felt that it lacked something. If I recall, there was one scene where character names were swapped - been a few days, so I don't quite remember the details. The dialogue was a little different from other Hamish Macbeth books. Still, a good read.

One of the Hamish McBeth stories. M.C. Beaton is a good choice for cozy mysteries.
