#7 Agatha Raisin in which she comes out of retirement to work for a local company that is going to bottle and sell water from an ancient spring in nearby Anscombe. When Agatha finds a dead body at the fountain where the spring is channeled through, publicity is bound to soar. The dead man is the parish council chairman, who would have had the tie-breaking vote in deciding whether the council supported the water company's efforts, but did his death really have anything to do with the council, or with something in his personal life? Well, you-know-who is going to snoop around and find out, of course. This one starts heading a bit backwards on the annoying, whiny Agatha front, pining for her boring neighbor James again. Still, there is something I really like about her and can't give up yet!

This was definitely one of the more enjoyable Agatha Raisin novels. I thought it was much funnier, and I loved the part about Agatha going on a tirade about smoking cigarettes with herself in her mind. I especially loved how James was less of a focal point in this book, and I am glad that Agatha is finally getting over him. I really hate his character! All in all, a fun and fast read.

I enjoyed this mystery set in the Cotswolds, England. Agatha Raisin is a feisty lady with many "boyfriends." Unexpected revelations of life in rural England.

Although several of the members have recommended the Agatha Raisin series, this is the first one I've read and I enjoyed the book. I found Agatha my kind of women a fiesty individual who will not take crap from anyone. Her character is funny, smart and human...she makes mistakes like we all do, but that is what makes this book great. In this one, she is hired to do PR for a company who wants to tap the town spring against the objection of town people who don't want it vs those who think it will bring in money. VG

I love cozies, but usually after book 5 or 6 in a series I get bored with it (really how many villagers can be killed off before everyone leaves?). That is not the case with the Agatha Raisin books. I love the characters, the village, and I haven't been able to guess the killer in any of the books. Every time I think I've figured it out there's a new twist. This title was a nice addition to the series. The only thing I didn't care for is how Agatha keeps letting Roy into her life. He is no friend I'd want to have.
