Al ritorno dalle vacanze Agatha non può che rimanere sconvolta nello scoprire che una nuova donna si è intrufolata nelle simpatie del suo attraente vicino James Lacey. La bellissima Mary Fortune le è superiore in ogni cosa, soprattutto nel giardinaggio, e con l’imminente Giornata dei Giardini Aperti di Carsely Agatha si sente profondamente inadeguata. Nel frattempo cominciano a succedere cose strane: alcuni giardini vengono devastati, i pesciolini rossi del vecchio Bernard Spott vengono uccisi, e la nuova arrivata si comporta davvero in modo bizzarro, quasi un po’ crudele.

Relectura de 10! Me encanta Agatha y más con Lacey! ♥️
It's always comforting to see Agatha again and the village of Carsley, almost like coming home. This time Agatha is searching for the murder of a beautiful yet surprisingly unpopular newcomer to the village who has been found quite literally 'planted' to death.

I have one major issue when it comes to the cozy mystery: just a blink of the eye and I suddenly realise I've spent the better part of an evening completely engrossed in mischief and murder.

As with the other Agatha Raisin stories, Beaton shows that she must have done research on sociopathic and psychopathic personality disorders.

Who would want to move to Carsley? Mary Fortune did so, showed her skill as a gardener, much to Agatha's disgust, and then found herself murdered.

2014 --RATING: 3.5 STARS I am enjoying Agatha - she is a younger sassier Miss. Marple and is not above cheating in a contest to win. Just a quick fun read in between more dense books. Great on audio! 2021 --RATING: 2.5 STARS When I last read this book, I enjoyed it a bit better. After seeing the TV se Leggi tutto
