Even though Agatha Raisin loathes Christmas panto, her friend Mrs Bloxby, the vicar's wife, has persuaded her to support the local am dram society in their festive offering. Stifling a yawn at the production of Babes in the Wood, Agatha watches the baker playing an ogre strut and threaten on stage until a trapdoor opens... followed by a scream and silence!

Surely this wasn't the way the scene was rehearsed? When it turns out the local baker had been murdered most horribly, Agatha puts her team of detectives on the case. And they soon discover more feuds and temperamental behaviour in amateur dramatics than in a professional stage show - and face more and more danger as Agatha and her team get too close to the killer...

Journal Entry 8 by wingBookworm-ladywing at Madrid, Madrid Spain on Sunday, February 25, 2024
I finished reading it some days ago, and this was fun... not one of the best Agathas, but enjoyable anyway.
Village characters come to life when there is a gruesome murder during a pantomime, and the final twist is just as gruesome!
As usual, I like Agatha's description with all her middle-aged quirks, and I must confess I can identify with some of them.
Soon to continue its travels to the hands of another avid reader.
Thanks for sharing, Russbaum! :)

Both Agathas arrived safe and sound! I sometimes wonder what makes me read these, because Agatha is a self-centered b**** who behaves badly and most days would deserve a punch in the face, but still there is something which makes me turn the pages.
There will Brits coming to the BC-Convention in Tampere next month, so I ought to read this before that and offer them some Blood of an Englishman in our book buffet...

Journal Entry 11 by wingkirjakkowing at Sipoo, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Tuesday, March 26, 2024
Finished! I was having high fever when reading this, so the going was slow at first.
I wonder where Agatha found all these men who were after her money, no man has asked my wealth...
Sometimes writers get tangled in their own plotting - it was Paul Newton, not Jeremy Rutherford who said he knew James Lacey and had been to their wedding.
The book goes to the Book Buffet pile next. Will Agatha stay in Finland or travel further on?

Bookworm-lady’s words about identifying with some of Agatha’s quirks has been in the back of my mind today. Is she hanging in in the bars of Madrid stalking eligible handsome bachelors? Then I had a look in the mirror at work and realized: moustache! I’m not shaving like Agatha, I plock them out one by one with tweezers, but howcome they return much faster than your hair grows? And every time you look, there are more of the dark ones. Remember how easy it was during the covid years, when you brushed your teeth and put your mask on? Moustache, beard, everything was covered. Well, I’m wearing the mask again at work as I cough and sneeze.
