Book Spotlight: Death of A Nurse by: M.C. Beaton

M.C. Beaton is back with her 32nd Hamish MacBeth mystery DEATH OF A NURSE by M.C. Beaton (Grand Central Publishing Hardcover; 9781455558254; on-sale: Feb. 23; $25). Beaton continues to draw readers—old and new alike—to her cozy mysteries like moths to flame. With so many novels in her repertoire, and her career spanning three decades, she has perfected her craft so that every reader, following along with MacBeth, becomes an armchair sleuth! 

Teeming with Beaton’s trademark wit, snappy dialogue, and so-real-you’ll-think-you’re-there descriptions of the Highlands, DEATH OF A NURSE book will take you on a romp of a good time. 

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 cantankerous old man rails at him and tosses him out. The sting of Harrison’s dismissal diminishes somewhat when Gloria takes it upon herself to smooth things over and apologizes. Charmed by her, Hamish invites her out for dinner yet on the appointed evening, she never arrives at the restaurant. Four days later, Gloria's body washes up on the beach. Now battling more than the embarrassment of being stood up at dinner, Hamish must find out who killed the beautiful new resident of Sutherland and why, before the truth devastates the community…

Praise for M.C. Beaton & Hamish MacBeth:

"The latest appearance by the charming Scot...provides all the quirky characters and striking Highlands scenery you could want, along with one of Beaton's most successful mysteries."
—Kirkus Reviews on Death of a Nurse

"Macbeth, when roused to action, is very canny at solving mysteries, and the Highlands setting is always satisfying. A fine mix of eccentric characters, vivid landscape, and engaging mystery."
—Booklist on Death of a Nurse

“…highly entertaining…Beaton’s series remains as engaging as ever.”
—Publishers Weekly on Death of a Liar

"Longing for escape? Tired of waiting for Brigadoon to materialize? Time for a trip to Lochdubh, the scenic, if somnolent, village in the Scottish Highlands where M. C. Beaton sets her beguiling whodunits featuring Constable Hamish Macbeth.”—New York Times Book Review

"Hamish Macbeth is that most unusual character, one to whom the reader returns because of his charming flaws. May he never get promoted."—New York Journal of Books
  
"Macbeth is the sort of character who slyly grows on you."—Chicago Sun-Times
