My second try with this series. Fortunatley I was able to finish it on a my way to and from a meeting. Still not loving this series so will give up.

i am starting to like Agatha Raisin quite a bit! She is a very human character.
I really like this series. Has different characters that seem more "real" and the chemistry works. Highly recommend. These books are like chips, you can't read just one!
Well, I read the whole thing, but I don't think Ms. Raisin is going to be a favorite. I find the character a little too unsympathetic, I guess. But she seems to have many fans, so hopefully someone else will enjoy the book more than I did!
I am so enjoying this series! I'm well aware that Agatha Raisin is clearly a character that one either loves or hates, but I have found myself in the former group, and am thrilled to have a new series to enjoy! A true British cozy, I enjoyed every word of this book. It is intelligent and fun reading! Not too heavy but certainly not too fluffy. Agatha Raisin is a flawed character, and set in her ways. She is outspoken and yet tenderhearted, still longing for romance in her life. There is a hysterical scene in this one that had me laughing loudly while my husband next to me in bed was trying to sleep. It is worth the price of the book, by far! This second book was far more skillfully edited than the first, and I liked this one even better than the first, The Quiche of Death. I am so happy to have many books ahead of me in this series, as I'm quite fond of the crusty Agatha!
