This is the twenty first book in a series of cozy mysteries featuring lovable Highlander, Hamish Macbeth, in charge of law and order in the village of Lochdubh and its environs in the north of Scotland. As always, 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. One does not read these books for their literary value. One reads them purely for the fun of it.

This time, a well-known writer moves to the Highlands and decides to teach a writing course. Unfortunately, this bitter, nasty, self-important man decides that his time would be best spent treating his students like the village idiots. So, when he turns up deader than a doornail, in a manner befitting his occupation, no one is shedding any tears. It is then left to Hamish to discover just who is the murderer amongst them.

Due to the notoriety of the murder and the celebrity of the deceased, the media descends upon the village like a plague of locusts. Along with these unwelcome outsiders, his new boss, Detective Chief Inspector Heather Meikle, also pays the Highlands a visit, discovering that Hamish is just what the doctor ordered. Then things get even more complicated when his old girlfriend and news reporter, Elspeth Grant, returns to Lochdubh.

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 the characters are certainly quirky and entertaining, adding to the charm of the series. With the oddly endearing Hamish Macbeth, the author has created a character that is a winner. I love this series of cozy mysteries!

As usual, this is an excellent book in an excellent series. Many colorful characters, same old Hamish ever endearing. The only fault I find is in the reason for the murder. I doubt if anybody would murder an author in order to keep him from finding out that you are not using his script as written. Of course there is always the artistic temperament I guess. And, as we all know, the first murder is the easiest then others follow. Still, a very interesting book.

The Hamish Macbeth series delivers mysteries reminiscent of the classical style of Agatha Christie. The village of Lochdubh is filled with picturesque scenery and quaint characters. Hamish, himself, displays a good natured charm and keen intelligence. If you're looking for a solid, traditional mystery, you've found it.

Hamish Macbeth is a Bobby in a small town and tries to keep everything locked up at night and local problems ironed out and running smoothly, but then MURDER raises its ugly head and Hamish has to solve the case quickly to make sure that one of the locals did not do it! He turns over every leave and rock and finds the bad seed...each time he is successful...his bosses allow him to stay in the town a little longer rather than promoting him because he refuses to move. This is a mystery about writers!....Cool....and the local writers in Scotland are flocking to learn the craft, but when the smokes clears...someone has killed the teacher! This will never do, so
Hamish is on the scent. This is a great series and I enjoy them very much on my Kindle.

I wholeheartedly agree with a fellow reviewer: It is hard to believe this is the 20th book in the Hamish Macbeth mystery series. It is hard to believe because M.C. Beaton's writing remains crisp and engaging throughout the entire series. In fact, her writing is so compeling that before you know it, you find yourself wanting to jump in the Range Rover alongside Hamish to drive to Cnothan to protect to the angry group of Highlanders from the tomfoolery of Hamish's superior officers.

In "Death of a Bore", just as in "Death of a Scriptwriter", M.C. Beaton gives the reader a wickedly real view of the artifical lives of the employees in the television industry. There are times when reading the book is like having a good gossip with a close friend over tea and toast. The images are so vivid that one cannot help but wonder whether M.C. Beaton, herself, is not writing from experience and her own desires to kill off scriptwriters after she worked with the entertainment industry in the making of the Hamish Macbeth television series for the BBC.

Like other books in the series, Beaton's "Death of a Bore" is filled with humor, especially when the village ladies, led by the vicar's wife, Mrs. Wellington, once again attempt to get Hamish married off.

All in all, the book is a good read. It teases your intellect with a mystery. It delights your sensitivities with satire as Hamish observes the world outside his beloved Highland village. The book tickles your funny bone when the village ladies are intent upon managing Hamish's life when he believes he is safely at home.

This is the twentieth book I have read in the series. I keep thinking that each book will be the last. But, I love the characters and the plot twists each adventure supplies. I have yet to figure out the murderer before they are revealed. I want to also find out what is to happen to Hamish’s love life.
I will continue to read the series.
