Hamish soon finds himself looking for a missing cat belonging to a lonely spinster. Confrontational and curt, the unfriendly woman insists her pet was stolen. Looking into her eyes behind her heavily bolted door, Hamish can see her true problem--she lives in great fear...but what is she afraid of? Then some thieves make off with a Christmas tree and lights in nearby Cnothan and Hamish must investigate. As if that isn't enough on his holiday plate, Hamish's romance of the new schoolteacher is going fine, until she mentions a perfect little girl whose family abhors Christmas...and whose behavior has recently become very imperfect. Now it's up to Hamish to make things right. He has to protect an unhappy girl, unlock the secrets of a frightened old woman, and retrieve some stolen holiday goods. And he had better do it quickly, for the church bells will soon toll, and all of Lochdubh will be forced to face another dreary winter without the warm embrace a A HIGHLAND CHRISTMAS.

Lovely book. Brought tears to my eyes more than once. Don't wait for the holiday season to read this--it is great for any time. I am a total Grinch, and I loved this. (The narrator's delightful rant against commercialism of Holy Days at the beginning of the book ALMOST made me forgive her for all the times she has called Hamish lazy. Almost.)

What a great book. It made me feel good, put a smile on my face and almost cried a few times. Hamish receives a great Christmas gift.
