Wish I had read the small print on the cover. Love the Hamish Macbeth series. And love this site. Leslie, thank you so much for telling us about M. Shame on them!!! Unless Beaton changed publishing companies within the last year, and lost the rights to use the previous name, I cannot imagine why they would pull this change of titles!
