Maria Worth, director of Checkmate, a matchmaking service, is hopeful that Lochdubh is the perfect setting for her clients. Eight optimistic individuals arrive at Tommel Castle Hotel in hopes of meeting that special someone.

Disaster soon strikes when Maria's partner, Peta, shows up unexpectedly. Peta is an obnoxious woman with appalling table manners. She destroys any romance that may have been in the air and drives wedges between the prospective couples.

It is not until a murder occurs that the couples seem to come together. Constable Hamish Macbeth must now try and figureout which of the Checkmate members is the murderer.

Besides being the author of Hamish Macbeth mysteries, M.C. Beaton is also the author of the Agatha Raisin series.
