Amazing news has spread across the Scottish countryside. The most famous of highland bachelors, police sergeant Hamish Macbeth, will be married at last. Everyone in the village of Lochdubh adores Josie McSween, Macbethś newest constable and blushing bride-to-be. While locals think Josie is quite a catch, Hamish has a case of prenuptial jitters. After all, if it wereńt for the recent murder of a beautiful woman in a neighbouring village, there wouldńt be a wedding at all. For it was a mysterious Valentineś Day package - delivered to the victim before her death - that initially drew Hamish and Josie together on the investigation. As they work side by side, Hamish and Josie soon discover that the womanś list of admirers was endless, confirming Hamishś suspicion that love can be blind, deaf . . . and deadly.
