a little bit like an Agatha Christie novel ( )

I've read many of the Hamish Macbeth novels. They're a quick read with fairly stock characters, but I've just started reading them again on audible (there was a sale) and I am thoroughly enjoying them, because of the reader and her lovely accent. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0446607142, Mass Market Paperback)

Murder Most Fowl When Priscilla Halburton-Smythe brings her London playwright fiance home to Lochdubh, everybody in town is delighted...except for love-smitten Constable Hamish Macbeth. Yet his affairs of the heart will have to wait. Vile, boorish Captain Bartlett, one of the guests at Priscilla's engagement party, has just been found murdered-shot while on a grouse hunt. Now with many titled party guests as the prime suspects, each with a reason for snuffing out the despicable captain, Hamish must smooth ruffled feathers as he investigates the case. When the hidden culprit strikes again, Hamish will find himself trying to save Priscilla from a miserable marriage-and catch a killer before he flies the coop.
