Agatha Raisin and the Walkers of Dembley
19 journalers for this copy...
This wasn't the best Agatha Raisin mystery I've read but I liked it because of what develops between James Lacey and Agatha. :)
The book was too short, too fast, and the mystery was dull, but nevertheless it was extremely cozy and entertaining. The James/Agatha sub-plot was definitely better than the mystery itself and the ending made up for the rest of the book. Its a little unbelievable, so I really hope Agatha doesn't wake up in the next book and finds its all a dream. That would be so disappointing! :)

WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Going to Sunlightbub..............
Received this yesterday along with an audio book from Three..Thank you both!
Starting a UK only ring
Back to me
Arrived this morning with two other rings, making my total 7! Thankfully I'm on holiday for the next 10 days!
Another great read. Devoured whilst on holiday in Scotland. (Ring mountain reduced from 7 books to 3!)
I have the address for ScotsBookie and will get this in the post on 2nd May.
Arrived safely with me this morning. #2 on pile TBR.
I enjoyed this, not perhaps as much as the previous three but what did make me chuckle was the developments between Agatha & James & the spanners that are starting to appear for them already!
This will be off to PurpleRosedbud with the Potted Gardener in the next few days.
Thank you sunlightbub for ringing the book.
Posted off to PurpleRosebud this morning. Happy Reading!
Arrived today along with the Potted Gardener, many thanks! Now to be shared betwen myself, cateringa and calalilly.
A nice cosy little read. Not the most thrilling of mysteries but interesting developments between James and Agatha so looking forward to the next book in the series to see what happens next!
Now off to calalilly.
Received from Purplerosebud yesterday I am looking forward to starting this but have a couple of rings in front of it.
I enjoyed the book it's a nice easy read but it wasn't quite as good as the previous ones. With the ending the author keeps your interest going to read the next book in the series.
Light easy read.
Now on it's way to dogsapples.
Arrived today from cateringa - thank you -looking forward to reading as soon as poss.
sorry didn't enjoy this my second attempt at an Agatha Raisin book. I couldn't get to like Agatha at all and that affected the whole book for me. The stories are also a little bizarre and the lack of continuity annoyed me. E.g at the end of the last book she left her catss with the neighbour James while she went to London. At the start of this one it said that her cleaning lady had been looking after them. Also I couldn't undertsand her being apparently so upset on seeing a body,she had clearly seen some before and the position of the body in the previous book was really wierd when she found it.
Oh well...can't win them all. Thanks Sunlightbulb anyway and i'll be sending this off to weebly as soon as i get her address.
Arrived today - many thanks! Sunlightbulb can I ask a cheeky question? Can I send this book together with The Potted Gardener to Glitterlover to save on postage rather than to Rillaith? CHeeky I know but if you don't ask.....
Order changed as requested by cheeky weebly ;0)
I started this book today, so it should be moving on with it's partner soon.
Well, that didn't take long. Another cosy read which I enjoyed relaxing and reading today. Also I have read a future book where Charles appears, so I was pleased to see where he was introduced.
Release in the 2006 Keep Them Moving Challenge
Still waiting for an address from Glitterlover.
Arrived safe and sound complete with glitter - thanks Weebs.
Will read in the next week or so.
Great little read. I enjoy the bitterweeet character of Agatha. Thanks very much. PMing Rillaith now.
Rillaith no go so off to Caterina Anna today...
These arrived yesterday without warning! As there are a number of familiar names on the list, I suspect the same will be true of their onward journey. :o)
One book to go through before them, so I estimate a week or so before the next JE.
Err... this JE is actually late 'cos I succumbed and read it as part of my habitual Sunday guilt trip.
I think she deserved to be murdered, horrid woman! Fun, but not sure 'cosy' is a word I'd use purplerosebud!
Will parcel up to send on to candy-is-dandy at some point this weekend.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Continuing on the journey
Arrived safely along with Agatha R & the Perfect Paragon (the latter a welcome surprise). Thanks CaterinaAnna and sunlightbub for sharing this spiral.
Having got into a bit of a pickle with a surfeit of bookrings, sunlightbub, ring organiser, has kindly agreed to stick me on the bottom of this list for these books so that we can get them moving again. Sorry for causing a traffic jam.
Off this goes to bean-frog together with AR & The Potted Gardener.
NB Welshhelen has asked to be skipped as she has acquired another copy of this.
Excellent book, really enjoyed it. Definitely as good as the previous ones.
This book arrived yesterday, along with a partner. As I'm finding these books annoying for lack of indication as to the series order, once I've figured it out I'll write in the book whether it's number 3 or 4 in the series, since the relationship with James seems to be a key driver in the order.
I enjoyed this one probably because I've read a later book in which they meet one of the characters they first meet in here.
An enjoyable way of passing an evening, but the writing is sometimes grating on me with these books. Nevertheless, it passed the time well.
Iojima has asked to be removed, so I'm trying Millycat.
This arrived just as we went away, so only just able to journal it & what's amazing is that in this huge series, its the very one I needed to read next! Pm ing Celtic star for addy today.
Tucked myself up on the sofa with this and my cold, loved it - just right for an undemanding quick enjoyable read. Thanks for setting the ring up!
After 18 months this one has finally returned home after extensive travels around the UK!!! Thanks to everyone for keeping it moving!
Hopefully I'll read number 3 and this one quite soon. Then they are both going to CiD so she can read them at leisure!!!
Took this on holiday with me and enjoyed it..I'm now sending it to CiD, along with book 3
Yes! I've got this too. Will read very shortly and return to Sunny with The Potted Gardener.
Another easy read though the murder storyline was a bit dull. You couldn't quite imagine any of the charcters having the guts or motivation to actually murder somone.
This ended with a question mark over whether Agatha will ever get her man so I suspect I may well continue reading the series.
Thanks for sharing sunlightbub.
Won in the recent blue book swap - never read anything by this author before, intrigued!!

This has been on the shelf for far too long - sorry! I'm moving house next month and need to do a huge book cull. I'm hoping I can find a local book crosser who'd like this for wild releasing or an OBCZ.
