Feisty Agatha Raisin, former London PR exec, retired to quiet Cotswold village. Handsome vet Paul Bladen accidentally kills himself while attending Lord Pendlebury’s horse. Agatha and attractive neighbor James Lacey investigate the curious lack of sorrow shown by his divorced wife while a killer plans another “accident”.
This is the second book I read from this author and I think it is safe to say that she’s got a fan for life. I cannot wait to read the rest of books in this series.
Agatha Raisin is one of those characters that you either love or hate. There cannot be a middle ground and she cannot be ignored. I personally love her. I love her spunk, her no-nonsense approach to everything, and I specially love that she doesn’t have a single politically correct bone in her body. I’m tired of PC ruining good stories and characters, so reading Agatha’s adventures is quite refreshing.
When an attractive new vet arrives in town, there is quite a stir among the female population of Carsely. When he dies and his death is deemed as an accident, Agatha is not convinced. She suspects foul play. So she decides to do a bit of sleuthing with the help of her reluctant neighbor, James Lacey.
Misunderstandings, mishaps, chaos, and dangerous situations galore. This is a book that you will read in just a couple of seatings, because it is a real page-turner.
It is a great story and you should give it a try if you like cozy mysteries. I give this book… 5 TEA CUPS!
