Death of a Perfect Wife

Death of a Perfect Wife
by M. C. Beaton

Constable Hamish Macbeth of Lochdubh in the Scottish Highlands is back again solving yet another murder in this usually sleepy village.
Enter Trixie Thomas and her husband Paul from England. They open a bed and breakfast in Lochdubh and residents soon notice that Trixie is very much different in beliefs than themselves. A "perfect wife", Trixie subjugates her husband and convinces the local women of Lochdubh to follow her example. Obeying Trixie, the wives begin serving health food instead of the usual "harmful" but hearty meals, and campaign against smoking, much to the dismay of their husbands. It is no wonder when Trixie is murdered and the town is finally relieved of her domineering presence.
Prepare to be entertained as Hamish Macbeth eliminates suspects along the way and eventually solves the murder!
