Death of a Nurse (Hamish Macbeth #31)

★★★★

25747142

By M.C. Beaton

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….

My review

My first book in the Hamish series, but not my first by the author. It’s book No 31 (!!) in the series, but it can easily be read as a stand alone. I enjoyed the setting of the story: the Scottish Highlands, the village, the people. Overall, I can definitely recommed the book to all lovers of a cozy mystery.
