This was my first read from this series. I don't like this book nearly as well as those about Hamish. Agatha is an unlikeable woman that I almost want to frame for murder myself. I doubt I'll actually read other books from this series, even if the plot was decent. I like the series hero to be at least somewhat likeable. Agatha could very well become the victim in one of these books for her cheating and sheer mean behavior.
This is the 1st book I have read by M C Beaton. I liked that I didnt have to read the 1st book in the series to understand the book. I loved reading it. Couldnt wait to get back to it. Found it enjoyable. I actually like Agatha Raisin because her emotions seemed REAL. Not some overly brave, risk taking heroine. The events that happened to her really shook her up. She cries, she gets scared. The 2 men in her life a pretty selfish. I love her neighbor the Vicars wife, a very stable woman who Agatha needs to be more like.
This is a five star book as far as I am concerned. Lots of discriptive action and Agatha is full of her sarcastic dry wit more than ever before. It's thoroughly entertaining and the usual breath of funny fresh air as are all the Agatha books. It is not a dissappointment.
My first Agatha Raisin mystery...I felt like I should have started at the beginning but it was pretty good nonetheless. Story of Agatha going on holiday with her ex husband to a horrid place. The first day she is accused of murder and more bodies keep being found. Lots of twists and sad plots though which I love. Pretty good read.
Yet another wonderful Agatha Raisin mystery. This time, she goes about her usual antics, but her adoring attitude toward the ever-present, never-reachable James Lacey seems to be fading and she has a renewed self-confidence that makes her as brash and outspoken as ever---just like we like her! Is she finally over him? Can't wait to read the next one to find out! As usual, Donada Peters read this beautifully.
The 17th of the Raisin books and it does not disapoint. The ending leaves reader with more questons.
I didn't believe it was possible, but Agatha Raisin gets more irritating the more you read of her.
