Having just read a heart-thumping page-turning thriller, I felt the need to read something that would bring my blood pressure back to its normal rate. "Death of a Dustman," one of the books in M. C. Beaton's series about Hamish Macbeth, a police officer in a small village in the Scottish Highlands, was the perfect choice.
This book has just the right mix of suspects, clues, romance and local color to keep you interested while not taxing your heart. Don't expect deep character analyses, complicated plots or dastardly villians. The darkest thing about this book is probably the weather.
I have to give the book 5 stars because it delivered exactly what I expected...about three hours of non-stressful pure reading enjoyment.
This is the perfect book to tuck into your beach bag or carry on luggage.
