Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 192 - An Accidental Death by Peter Grainger, Death of an Honest Man by M.C. Beaton

An Accidental Death (D.C. Smith #1)An Accidental Death by Peter Grainger
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Gildart Jackson does a great job on the voices in An Accidental Death. The characters have some expected characteristics. Smith is the older detective who has always done things his way. He is just coming back on duty (this is book one so I never really knew what he had done but he was demoted). He is saddled with a new young addition to the force and he is given a case where it looks on the surface like the death was an accident. Of course it was not and the plot unfolds. I loved the progression of the case and how Smith uses the different events to further the case while giving the young detective a good foundation to use in the future. A good start to a new British detective series.

Death of an Honest Man (Hamish Macbeth #33)Death of an Honest Man by M.C. Beaton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hamish is back with another mystery to solve. This time he has other things to worry about. He misses his cat, is losing police assigned to help him right and left and Blair is really out to get him. This is another fun story that is light and easy to read. I do wonder if Hamish will ever find true love. Maybe M.C. Beaton is planning that. The book ends with Hamish getting a female police office as his new help. Just have to wait and see what happens next.  Oh and it turns out you can be too honest.

I received a free copy of the book in return for an honest review.
