#7 Agatha Raisin in which she comes out of retirement to work for a local company that is going to bottle and sell water from an ancient spring in nearby Anscombe. When Agatha finds a dead body at the fountain where the spring is channeled through, publicity is bound to soar.

Well, you-know-who is going to snoop around and find out, of course. This one starts heading a bit backwards on the annoying, whiny Agatha front, pining for her boring neighbor James again. Still, there is something I really like about her and can't give up yet!

Helpful Score: 1
This was definitely one of the more enjoyable Agatha Raisin novels. I thought it was much funnier, and I loved the part about Agatha going on a tirade about smoking cigarettes with herself in her mind. I especially loved how James was less of a focal point in this book, and I am glad that Agatha is finally getting over him. I really hate his character! All in all, a fun and fast read.
