I enjoy MC Beaton's writing a lot. It is light and fun. I do wish she would develop Sonsie and Luggs beyond foisting them off on others or letting them out to run at random doing who knows what to the local wildlife on the beach or in the heather. I especially enjoyed this installment as it lets the reader travel a bit with the characters.

The Scottish Highlands that Beaton depicts with such skill are beautiful and sinister, a fitting backdrop to her Hamish Macbeth series and especially to this one, her 26th craggy-cozy.

The chimney sweep himself, who was to have been cleaning the estate chimney, is found dead on the motorway, an apparent accident victim, a few hours later....
