Great book! The storyline and mystery were a bit silly and I was able to figure out who the murderer was early on, but I was glad that James wasn't featured in this one. The series continues to be enjoyable for me and I think Agatha is funny, but I would like for her to get over the men in her life! :)

Very funny and classic Agatha Raisin!!! Love her and her escapades and her boasts that she really is over James Lacey, again. The ending is hilarious.

The local ladies deemed him a "wizard", so when, to Agatha's horror, she finds several coarse gray hairs poking out of her head-and the rinse she tries at home turns her hair a lovely shade of purple-she makes a beeline for Mr. John, the handsome Evesham hairdresser who promises to work his magic on Agatha's coif. And the charming beatician also seems to have designs on Agatha's heart. But their future together is cut short when Mr. John collapes from a fatal poisoning in his salon--and Agatha suddenly has a murder case in her hair. Was it one of Mr. John's many customers, all of whom divulged to him their darkest secrets? It's time for Agatha to get to the bottom of this hair-raising mystery

To quote from the St. Petersburg Times review, "Agatha is a glorious cross between Miss Marple, Auntie Mame, and Lucille Ball with a tad of pit bull tossed in. She's wonderful." In this one, Agatha falls for the new hairdresser in town, but then when he is murdered, finds out he wasn't the Mr. McDreamy she had thought.

Agatha is an attractive, middle aged women seeking adventure, romance and freedom from boredom, but often finding the wrong man and murder. I find I am addicted to this series of stories.

Another good mystery with Agatha, James, Charles and several villagers plus Bill the policeman. Surprising resolution at the end, of course for M.C. Beaton.
