This is the first time I have ever read Agatha raisin by Marion Chesney (M.C.) Beaton. I have purposely avoided this series for the reason that I surmised (correctly) that Agatha Raisin was an blatantly brassy & bold busybody (alliteration) . Ah Ha! I was correct, she certainly isn't an endearing old biddy (Nosy Parker) like Miss Marple, although someone in the book likened her to be.....

In the neighboring village (hamlet) a woman is found poisoned, no one really liked her except for the Vicar, she was full of good church deeds, however, she was also pushy, a liar, & a thief. When she is found poisoned by a bottle of locally made elderberry wine the townspeople are actually quite relieved.

Agatha Raisin is called in to investigate by one of the locals, but because Agatha goes in brassy, bold & rude as the midday sun, and nobody is who they appear to be, the town closes ranks and Agatha is left to send in others to investigate for her.

The story; with the exception of Agatha's neediness of being with a man and her never-ending jealousy over her ex-husband as well as over another man with whom she had a thing was seriously off-putting.

...and another thing that bothered the pffffft out of me, the book should have ended on page 248 with the arrest of the murderer, but for some reason M.C. decided to keep it going for another 43 pages putting Agatha in mortal danger from the imprisoned murderer.

I was correct in thinking I would not like Agatha, she's a narcissistic harpy, which is a shame, because other than Agatha's over-the-top foibles, I liked the story. ( )

Another fun and interesting read in the Agatha Raisin Series, although in this one she descends into the village from hell! What is it about these quiet rural English villages, they are deathly; just ask Miss Marple and so many others. ( )

I've read several Agatha Raisin mysteries. Most are entertaining but predictable. I actually liked this one better than most. I like Agatha best when she is not so man crazy. Maybe because I've finally reached that stage in my life. ( )

In which our Agatha becomes involved in some very strange happenings in the village of Piddlebury. A local newcomer to the village, who at first is admired for her good works,becomes disliked for her habit of borrowing and not returning items. Needless to say she soon becomes a murder victim,with most of the villagers having good reasons to wish her dead.
Agatha Raisin has some lovely funny scenes as well as some dangerous ones too. ( )

I couldn't get into this one at all. Usually I love Agatha Raisin but this book felt "phoned in." Hopefully the next one will be up to MC Beaton's usual standards. ( )
