Death of a Gossip by M.C. Beaton
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was recommended to me by a friend that also enjoys mysteries set in the UK... I enjoyed the laid back character of Hamish Macbeth-- but was greatly annoyed at the silliness of Alice. It struck me that she didn't seem so ridiculous at the beginning of the book, but seemed to get dumber as the story continued.
Overall a good book. I will certainly give #2 a look.
