Two books by M.C. Beaton

Death of a Poison Pen and Death of a Bore I listened to these two Hamish Macbeth mysteries on my iPod. I've listened to some others, too. I love listening to them because they're read by a Scottish actor and I love his accent. But I enjoy the stories, too. They're sort of like Miss Marple mysteries if you've ever read those. Not too easy to figure out, but kind of slow moving and not terribly complex. I walk listening to these, and it really makes time pass quickly. If you like a mystery story, you might want to give them a go, but they'll probably appeal to grown ups more than middle schoolers. A little too slow moving and all adult characters.

Available at the Multnomah County library.
