Amazon Editorial Review

After six gruelling months spent in London, Agatha Raisin returns to her beloved Cotswold village of Carsely - and to her attractive neighbour, James Lacey. True, James is less than thrilled to see her, but Agatha is soon consoled by a sensational murder. The victim, found in a lonely field, is hiker Jessica Tartinck, who spent her life enraging wealthy landowners by insisting on her walking club's right to hike over their properties. And now she has been found in a cornfield, battered over the head. Agatha lures the reluctant James into helping with her informal investigation, and there are so many leads to follow, for Jessica's fellow walkers seem able, even willing, to commit murder. And then there are the enraged landowners...Hope springs eternal in Agatha's breast, and she feels confident that the trail of a slippery killer may also be the road to love...or will it lead to even more deaths?

This looks interesting! When I shop in net bookshops (confess: guilty) for books about vets, I always get offered "Agatha Raisin and the Vicious Vet". I had thought it was a childrens' book, but apparently I was wrong. From the cover I saw that Penelope Keith reads it in radio 4 and so it HAS TO BE good if she has taken it. Thanks yorkshire-lass!

A very refreshing read after a second rate American scrapbook mystery I just finished. In it Southern Belles and posh parties played the major role, so Agatha Raisin from the slums of Birmingham was just what I needed.

Apart from the mystery there was humour in the book and apparently I'm not the only one who runs long romantic dialogues in her head and gets annoyed when in reality the Gorgeous One does not know his lines at all.
Perhaps the character most like me was Fran the typist who moons and talks about a man she fancies so that everyone at the office is fed up with it and forces her phone him and ask him out. The day after her big date she admitted of turning away from the bar door as she realized he would never live up to her dreams and expectations. "I'm not into reality" she confesses.

Wouldn't mind reading another Agatha Raisin - perhaps the Vicious Vet.

I've read a few from this series, for example the next book in the series. I liked this one the best so far. Maybe the mystery itself wasn't really good, but the whole story was funny and entertainig. I enjoyed reading the book.

The book was perfect reading for summer. The story was entertaining enough but I especially liked Agatha and the way she 'solves' the problems and cases.

the book arrived safely in Helsinki today, looking forward to getting to know why everybody seems to be talking about Agatha Raison ;)

Journal Entry 13 by winghippoleinwing at Helsinki, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Wednesday, August 03, 2011
have to confess this was my first book of this series, and I keep wondering if it would have been better with the knowledge of the other books beforehand.
After this one, with the nice mystery story in it, nothing wrong with that one, I don't think that I'm eager to put more of those books on my wishlist. I didn't like the person of Agatha Raisin at all, nor her way of looking upon other people and life. But guess it's like with a lot of books, differences have to be so that everybody can find their own favourites ;)
