I loved Agatha Raisin! She is just what I need in a amateur detective. Very human!!
M.C. Beaton just seems to rush through this book without much though at all. Questions left over from The Witch of Wyckhadden were ignored or not answered until the end of the book, like the Beaton forgot about it until the end of the book. Main chacaters of the book were not used until the very in and rushed in, even Agatha getting married was rushed at the very end of the book. It was like the Beaton started to write this book, and already decided she was bored with it and wanted to hurry it along to start the next one.
Not one of her best by a long shot.
Agatha leaves Carsley and rents a cottage in Fryfam, where she encounters some very strange goings-on. Never one to ignore a mystery, our Mrs. Raisin is soon up to her neck in blackmail and murder.
Tenth Agatha Raisin mystery in which Agatha, once again fleeing Carsely to try to escape the memory of her beloved James who is still away, ventures off to rent a cottage in the little Norfolk village of Fryfam. It's not long before Agatha's out of sorts, a murder has occurred and she's tangled up right in the midst of it. Meanwhile, little mysterious lights keep appearing in her garden, and the neighbors, a superstitious lot, attribute them to "the fairies" since this is such an 'old country' and all. Of course, Agatha's not buying it. A typical, light enjoyable Agatha Raisin book.
Agatha is always fun. You can't help but like her!
