A "Cool" Audio Book by M. C. Beaton

Updated on October 11, 2012

A Cozy Christmas Mystery Story from M. C. Beaton

I invite you to listen to this charming "Highland" Christmas story written by M.C.Beaton. Are you a mystery lover? Do you enjoy a great "Brit" mystery writer? Do you just plan enjoy a good story? Well, this is the audio book that you will want to have in your collection.

I was absolutely enthralled by this audiobook. The reader of this story is impeccably excellent, too.

There is no gory story line, no horrible acts committed. No nightmares will result from listening to "A Highland Christmas"! Plus you will find out how Hamish MacBeth got Luggs (don't know what or who Luggs is? Well, find out!). That is only one of several mysteries solved.
