L'apparente serenità dei fiabeschi villaggi dei Cotswolds viene spezzata dall'ingombrante presenza di John Sunday, impiegato dell'Ufficio Salute e Sicurezza di Mircester. Negozianti, luci natalizie, persino i bambini cadono vittima della sua cocciuta applicazione delle norme. In breve, Sunday si ritrova con più nemici che capelli in testa. Una sera, durante la riunione di un vero e proprio comitato di protesta nei suoi confronti, i presenti - tra cui Agatha - assistono a uno spettacolo orribile, quello di Sunday agonizzante in un bagno di sangue nel giardino della canonica. C'è un assassino in giro, e Agatha si mette subito alla sua ricerca.

I honestly don't know why I continue to read this series. Almost every single person is unpleasant, INCLUDING the main character.

Another great Beaton book with the irascible Agatha Raisin at it again. A number of murders are investigated in this book with more time passing than usual and, consequently, a mystery a bit more complex than those in the past.

Read them! All of them. All 23. They are simply fabulous! I love them and love Agatha Raisin. The stories are set in the English Cotswolds - which is where I'm from, so that makes them extra special, but I cannot recommend them highly enough. If you want to read about an opinionated, outspoken, head Leggi tutto

Although Marion Chesney/M. C. Beaton has long been one of my favorite authors, I had not tried her Agatha Raisin books. Shocking, I know! I've read all her Regency romances multiple times, and ditto Hamish Macbeth (okay, just once for all of them, except for A Highland Christmas). So with great deli Leggi tutto
Maybe it's time for M.C. Beaton to sit back and rest a bit. The incredibly prolific authors has turned out dozens upon dozens of cozy mysteries, most either featuring rural Scottish policeman Hamish Macbeth, or domineering Agatha Raisin, whose adventures are set in a Cottswolds village. It's clear f Leggi tutto
This book reminded me of the time I made the mistake of getting my lady parts waxed at a nail salon: thoroughly and unnecessarily unpleasant. I wanted it to end. But it just didn't. Not for quite some time. Every small action was drawn out. And just when I would see a glimmer of hope that the whole
