Series: Hamish Macbeth # 1
I picked this up from the library because I wanted a break from my long history audiobook and listen to something lighter for a bit. I thought I had read the first Hamish Macbeth book because I'm pretty sure my mother reads this series, but apparently not since I'd never read this book before. Oh well.
One thing that's useful to keep in mind is that this book was published in 1985 so although the nineteen year old completely naive girl (who fantasizes about her boss and about marrying the first guy who comes along in the book that shows interest in her) seems pretty ridiculous it's not quite as crazy as it would be in a more modern book. Don't get me wrong; Alice was plenty ridiculous, but I was more amused by her than frustrated by her. Her silliness made me laugh, although perhaps it was mean of me to laugh.
Oh well. I quite liked the narration and so this cute cozy mystery served its purpose.
