Death of a Snob centers around Detective Hamish Macbeth, who lives in a small village in the Scottish Highlands. It is almost Christmas, Hamish thinks he is dying from the flu (when all he really has is a mild cold), and his family has asked him not to come for the holidays as an American aunt who can’t stand him has made a surprise visit. Beaton another shot sometime in the future. But as for this particular novel? It was ruined by an overworked second half and too much effort in trying to keep the identity of the murderer a huge surprise.

The Happy Wanderer health farm on the weird little island of Eileencraig is the setting for an odd cast of characters and (of course) a murder. Hamish MacBeth, police constable of the Highland village of Lochdubh, is implored by ex-fiancé Priscilla to come to the rescue of an acquaintance who runs and owns the health farm and has found herself the victim of a couple of "accidents." Hamish finds it a excellent excuse to mooch a free holiday. A wee fey truck along with Beaton's usual delightful dialogue, well drawn characters and starkly vivid landscape are only part of the charm of this story. The murder victim, is as always, totally unlikable, the suspects numerous, and the plot twists and turns but never loses its pace. Will this be the turning point for the unlucky in love Hamish? Or the final straw in the career of this ever un-ambitious police constable? A clever whodunit, with all the wonderful bits and pieces Ms. Beaton formulaically delivers in an artfully distinct manner.(Amazon customer)

With this book, this series finally becomes a very interesting one. To me it still compares not favorably with the Agatha Raisin series but I am enjoying the books more. One thing that struck me about this book was the tragedy of Hamish's situation. He is the much older sibling with several much younger siblings so is doomed by tradition to help support all those kids as well as his parents. He does this without any compalint at all and lives in poverty in spite of his job as a small town copper as they call him. In this book with Christmas coming he is lonely and looking forward to going to spend Christmas with his family but his mother tells him not to come because one of his aunts is coming and she doesn't like Hamish. The author makes very little of this and Hamish accepts it in his usual humble way but it just struck me as horrible. I'm sure that aunt doesn't contribute one cent to the upkeep of that family but Hamish who sends almost every dime he makes back home is denied Christmas with the family that he sacrifices to support. I guess the author made it a small thing in the book in order to give more insight into Hamish's character. This is a very good mystery with a surprise "who done it".

A quick refreshing read! Having already read the entire series I reread Death of a Snob as a light break. I love Hamish MacBeth with his flaming red hair and his bumbling ways. On Christmas vacation on the island of Eileencraig, Hamish experiences seduction attempts, dysfunctional couples sparring and political conflicts. What appears to be an accidental death, Hamish senses is murder. As he calls in his superiors to investigate, he must continue to check things out to prove his case. A very stunning conclusion to the mystery, but unfortunately another misstep in his romantic life.

It is Christmas time in Lochdubh, and the village constable, Hamish Macbeth, is laid low with a cold with no one to comfort him but his dog, Towser. Feeling sorry for himself, as he will be unable to visit his family for the holidays due to a change in circumstances, Hamish is also suffering the holiday blues.

When a visiting friend of Priscilla Halburton-Smythe, Jane Wetherby, who runs a health farm on the remote and lonely Scottish island of Eileencraig, stops by for his professional advice, because she believes someone is trying to kill her, Hamish is all ears. Having no holiday plans, Hamish agrees to spend time at the health farm with some of her paying guests, even though he believes Jane is a little wacky.

Soon, Hamish is off to Eileencraig with Jane. Upon their arrival, they are greeted by sullen, unfriendly islanders. The guests at the health farm are no great improvement, as they clearly have issues with each other. One in particular, Heather Todd, is totally obnoxious and a dreadful snob. So, when Heather goes missing and is discovered to have met an untimely end, Hamish is not surprised. His only concern is to discover who the murderer is, before it is too late.

This is the sixth book in a series of cozy mysteries featuring lovable Highlander, Hamish Macbeth. The book is laced with sly humor throughout that is engaging, and the dialogue creates a feeling of authenticity of place, making the book highly enjoyable. As with all cozy mysteries, it is not so much the mystery that is of import but the characters that revolve around the mystery, and with the oddly endearing Hamish Macbeth, the author has created a character that is a winner. I love this series of cozy mysteries!

Although this is one of the earlier Hamish Macbeth books it is typical of the combination of superb mystery writing and wonderful humor that permeate this series by M.C. Beaton. Even though they vary in content, the series is a treat for anyone who enjoys mysteries and humor. My husband, who has not done much reading for enjoyment in MANY years, is sharing my addiction to the Hamish Macbeth books. I have gone through all the books available in our local library and purchased five that were not available for my Kindle. If you enjoy light reading during the summer this is the series for you. However, there is one caveat - the books tend to be addicting! I have almost finished the series of 31 books. I'm sure that once through the books won't be enough and the ones on my Kindle will be reread multiple times.

This was disappointing. I have read her books with a different main character and thought them good enough to buy. This one I am sorry I wasted money on it. None of characters are people one cares about. The solution is a last minute pull out of a hat with little to do with the story and with no reason that one could suspect the culprit. Beaton is not a mystery writer who follows the mystery principals of Agatha Christie and John Dickenson Carr.

Hamish MacBeth seems, on the surface, to be non-complex. However, his depth of self-realized, but also self-deprecating and balanced character, is admirable. He values other's opinions, some of which discount his depth and which cause him to self-criticize when he needn't do so. We need more like him in this world. He is a delight and because he is not caught up in his own ego, he is able to make a difference in the lives of others. Plus he admires cats and dogs. Does it get any better?

Beaton's books are always quick, clever, and highly entertaining. I was surprised at how invested I've become in the series characters. Despite the fast read, Beaton manages to build a complex, 3-dimensional protagonist that you are compelled to root for--and read about. Over and over.
Fun series. Treat yourself and read them all; you won't be sorry.

Hamish McBeth is at loose ends for the holidays. His parents are being visited by an aunt who hates him and Priscilla is too busy with her new hotel to have time for him. When a friend of hers thinks that someone is trying to kill her, she invites Hamish to her posh Health Spa for the holidays to protect her, only she isn't the guest who is in danger.
As usual the author has written a mystery that the reader can get completely absorbed in. The characters are quirky and the setting properly ominous. Another great read.
