Agatha ormai lo sa, anche se fa fatica ad ammetterlo: l'unica cosa che davvero riesce a tirarla su di morale è imbattersi in un cadavere. E se in più il ìorpo è quello di una bella ragazza vestita da sposa che fluttua nelle acque ingrossate di un fiume con in mano un bouquet... beh, diventa irresistibile! Più infelice che mai, Agatha vuole dimenticare che suo marito a lei ha preferito un convento. Si sente abbandonata, grassa, fuori moda e assolutamente furibonda. Che opzioni le restano? Fa un viaggio in un posto improbabile e prende lezioni di pilates. Ma non sembra servire. Fino a quando vede galleggiare un cadavere nelle acque di un fiume in piena e le pare di aver ritrovato uno scopo. Ma con chi indagare? Priva dei suoi tradizionali partner, Agatha si cimenta da sola e sperimenta una rinnovata fiducia in se stessa. Ed è un piacere osservare il cambiamento.

As I live and breathe, that Agatha Raisin appears to be growing up. No longer is she endlessly chasing after James, or Charles or even the new man next door. Agatha is not doing anything as trite as trying to “find herself”, but she is starting to come to some new realizations and her old irritating Leggi tutto
The endearing Agatha is at it again in that sleepy Cotswold village that she has retired to. "I am a real detective," declares Agatha truculently and then proceeds to hit a string of minor disasters while investigating the latest couple of murders that present themselves to her. The love interest ab Leggi tutto
All right, I've probably read too many Agatha Raisin books lately. She got a bit irritating this time at the end when she decided to just go ahead and search things at the end without notifying the police. I think her character made a bit of a regression there, while prior to this book, I'd been thi Leggi tutto

I really enjoyed this Agatha Raisin mystery. Agatha is all alone - James has taken off to join a monastery, and Charles has taken off to France to marry some girl. So Agatha decides to take a mini-vacation. When she gets back, she finds a floating dead body of a woman in her wedding dress. She and h Leggi tutto
Agatha Raisin is secretly attracted to the new man in the revolving ownership house next door. She sees parallels in two deaths and investigates the local one. Although James has run off to join the monastery and Charles has married, it gives Mrs. Biloxby a chance to enter the fray.
4⭐= Good. Book #12 in the series. Another great little bit of escapism with Agatha Raisin and her merry little band. A gentle cosy mystery that I read in a flash. Great if you're after a quick read but I would recommend that you start at book #1.
This is my third or fourth Agatha Raisin and she's beginning to grow on me. Agatha starts out on an island where she is drowning her sorrow over her marriage to James Lacy who has left her for a monastery. She returns to England and new adventure. She goes to her pilates class, determined to get in s Leggi tutto
Toujours en quête d'amour et de meurtres à résoudre, Agatha (que je connais maintenant très bien!!) me fait toujours passer un bon moment.
In this book, Agatha meets her new next door neighbor, a mystery writer. He seems to be interested in her, but her low self esteem won't allow her to see it. She is still jealous of almost every woman who passes her path, especially if they are younger. But, her grumpy attitude seems to endure her t Leggi tutto
