I am late to the Agatha Raisin series by M.C. Beaton. I see them come and go at the library and always think to myself, "I should try one of these books. They seem popular." It took book #24, which is set to be released on September 17, to get me started. Better late than never!
I loved this book. The characters, including Agatha Raisin, are so quirky and fun.
Agatha is a private investigator in England. Due to the current financial climate, business is slow in the P.I. business. That is until Agatha gets called to a nearby village to investigate the murder of Gloria French, a randy widow with a penchant for "borrowing" things. Everyone in the small village in which the murder occurs seems to be hiding something. With the help of her employees, her fellow private investigators, and her ex-husband James, Agatha gets to the bottom of the murder and more.
With enough twists to make a pretzel, this book kept me interested and planning to go back and read the other 23 books in order.
If you like a good British mystery or are a fan of the Agatha Raisin series, you are going to love Something Borrowed, Someone Dead.
Thanks for reading.
