Agatha Raisin joins Dembley hiking club to pursue handsome Cotswold neighbor James Lacey. Angry member Jessica targets wealthy landowner Charles Fraith, who retaliates with tea invitation, but her body is found dead on his grounds. Agatha and James investigate the crime, the group ready to kill.
Another enjoyable story from the queen of the village mystery. This time, our Agatha has the opportunity of getting even closer to her dear neighbor James Lacey when they go to investigate the death of a rambler in Dembley.
The more I read this series, the more I like the humor, the lack of political correctness, Agatha’s bluntness, and the whole collection of colorful secondary characters in the books.
Throughout this story, we get to see how Agatha’s and James’ style of investigating evolves at the same time as their relationship. Will they discover the secrets hidden in the group of ramblers from Dembley? Will they discover who was the murderer? Will James figure out his feelings towards Agatha?
Cute story that you will be able to read in just a weekend.
I give this book… 4 TEA CUPS!
