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, specialmente nel giardinaggio e, con l'imminente apertura della Mostra dei Giardini di Carsely, Agatha si sente profondamente inadeguata. Nel frattempo succedono cose strane: alcuni giardini vengono devastati, una mano misteriosa uccide i pesciolini rossi del vecchio Bernard Spott, e la nuova vicina si comporta in modo davvero bizzarro, quasi crudele. Solo Agatha sembra la persona adatta a scoprire cosa c'è sotto...

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 love all the characters, and even th Leggi tutto
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. It's been awhile since I last visited Agatha, yet I found it easy to get sucked back into her not-so-quiet wo Leggi tutto
I continue to be surprised with Agatha Raisin! The books give you such a different feeling then the TV show. Loved this book and new character Mary Fortune who ends up not being so "fortunate" Perfect foil for Agatha and all of Carsley.

A potty plot and despite my hopes, Agatha Raisin still remains an obnoxious character, surrounded by annoying secondary characters. Watch the sitcom version I say, it's still tolerable than this! My Rating - 2/5
Un entretenido divertimento por si se tiene mono de un misterio detectivesco a lo Agatha Christie o se quiere una lectura ligera para pasar el rato. No inventa la rueda, pero tampoco lo pretende. Nos habla de una detective aficionada resolviendo un caso en un pueblo pequeño, rodeada de sus peculiares Leggi tutto
I don't like Agatha Raisin. I didn't like her when I read a couple of the books, in fact I disliked her a lot, so I stopped reading them. But when I heard that Penelope Leach narrated the audiobooks I decided to give one a try because I love her in Good Neighbors and To the Manor Born, and I thought Leggi tutto
