"Marital bliss was short-lived for Agatha. Her marriage was a disaster from the beginning, and in the end, he left her - for God. He decided to join a monastery.
She goes on a holiday alone, to try to feel better. She discovers one of her fellow travelers has died under suspicious circumstances. The police say it's suicide, but Agatha suspects the woman's fiance killed her. Agatha and her new (handsome and single)neighbor wotk together to prove the police wrong."
Agatha is at times cranky, ornery, warm and caring. She uses her wits and her instincts to solve myteries - even when others have given up.
I love all the Agatha Raisin Mysteries; but this is one of my favorites as after trying to figure out who did it and why; I was like "Forget it! I'll just find out in the end" because there were SO many possabilies. It was CRAZY GOOD! Really worth reading if you're trying Agatha for the first time (or any of the other books:D )
