Agatha Raisin and the Day the Floods Came (Agatha Raisin, Bk 12) (Large Print)
Review Date: 10/10/2006


Agatha Raisin is a feisty, fifty-something, politically incorrect, self-made woman. She is funny, infuriating, and oh so human.

Great book - unusual, but incredibly well written. The lead character vacillates from likable to frustrating. The characters are believable, some sympathetic and some just pathetic. I see a movie in this book's future, although I thought the ending was a bit abrupt for the information gleaned. I recommend reading this book.

This book is for non-fiction what Shopaholic is for fiction. Jen Lancaster is not only funny, but SO on point about her observations about life. She apologetically writes about her maturation from a clothes and status obsessed, overpaid dot com VP to a mature, witty, yet still wittily-caustic wife and writer. This book is funny, laugh out loud, poke your husband to wake him up and, "listen to this!" funny!

I really enjoyed this book. It was a fairly "easy read," but it was a in-depth study of the complicated undercurrents of small-town football, and what happens after we supposedly "grow up."

With a zany cast of characters this story is hilarious. Author Stohmeyer successfully navigates the fine line between humorous stereotype and sympathetic amateur investigator.

Janette Oke never fails to deliver. This book is a "soothing," read and, at least for me, is a blessing. You won't want to put this book down.
