Amazing news has spread across the Scottish countryside. The most famous of highland bachelors, police sergeant Hamish Macbeth, may actually marry at last. The entire village of Lochdubh adores Macbeth's bride-to-be. Josie McSween is Hamish's new constable, and she is a pretty little thing, with glossy brown hair and big brown eyes. The local folk think that Josie is quite a catch, but Hamish couldn't be more miserable.
The wedding wouldn't be happening if it weren't for the murder of a beautiful woman in a nearby village. After the gorgeous woman receives a deadly Valentine's Day gift, Hamish and Josie take on the case. However, they soon discover that the list of the victim's admirers is endless. The case confirms Hamish's belief that love is extremely dangerous, but he still can't avoid the events that lead up to his celebrated engagement.

Death of a Valenine --- by --- M. C. Beaton.
Once again Beaton has created a marvelous story. This time her hero, Hamish Macbeth learns that he is to be assigned an assistant constable. The police station has an extra bedroom which would serve nicely for the new copper but it would be a gargantuan task to first clean out the room and dispose of all those things that had accumulated over the years. But it’s all a moot point: the new constable is a policewoman and she very soon has designs on Hamish. It’s an interesting story which, as usual, keeps us guessing till the very end.

Always thought Hamish and Priscilla should be together now I think Hamish is just fine with his dog and cat.

A nice light mystery story. Easy read, something different.

If you're going to read fluff, read the best fluff! Hamish is adorkable, every bit of the story is enjoyable.

Haven't read a funnier mystery in years.

Hamish is being tricked into marriage, there are the usual various murders, and Hamish himself is the victim of attempted murder. Never a boring moment.
