I usually give Agatha Raisin mysteries 5 stars but I didn't like this one quite as well. It didn't hold my interest so that I could hardly put it down like the others do. What I enjoy most about these mysteries I guess is Agatha's interaction with her friends. I'm amused but understanding of her willingness to get drunk and fall into bed with almost any handsome man. She waited too long for love and now she is trying like mad to find it. In doing so she makes a lot of mistakes and this is what I like about her. She is so human. I wasn't too surprised at who the guilty party was but thought the story was a bit more dark than usual. But, if you are reading the series, don't leave this one out.

Other reviewers have already stated my opinions on this book so I won't repeat. I found this series late in the game, started with the first book, and have just finished The Wellspring of Death. Mrs. Bloxby is my favorite secondary character and I look forward to every scene that includes her. I wish the author would use her more. I also like Sir Charles and am growing to like him even better in The Wizard of Evesham which I'm currently reading. I never hesitate to buy one of M.C. Beaton's books because she has earned my trust that I won't be disappointed. She satisfies my need for English cozies very well.

I am really enjoying this series of books. Picked up a hard backed book at a small library and was filling in some waiting time with a client. It turned out to be book 23 of 28. I immediately ordered book 23 on my Kindle Fire so that I could finish reading. Then went onto Amazon to pull info on this author and found the listing of all the books in the series. I am up to book 8 in the series. Very interesting and am learning about English country life.

Agatha is a cute and compelling character and all her adventures are fun to read! M.C. Beaton has the ability to weave a narrative that has the reader feeling sympathy for the unlikely heroine (a 50-ish toughened city businesswoman who has retired to the genteel countryside) even while she is doing her best to annoy and disappoint everyone in her village...including the man she thinks she loves! Agatha bumbles, fibs and blusters her way into trouble and into your heart while solving the mysterious deaths that seem to happen in her wake.

In this seventh book of this contemporary cozy mystery series, the indomitable Agatha Raisin is still trying to meld into village life in the Cotswalds. It is still slow going, as she sometimes just doesn't quite get it that a London outsider such as herself may never be a perfect fit for quiet village life.

In this book, Agatha volunteers to handle the publicity for bottled water from a village spring, a venture that proves to be somewhat controversial, as some of the villagers are totally against this new enterprise, fearing that it could change their peaceful way of life. Tempers run high, and Agnes finds herself with a potential public relations disaster, when a body turns up in those same spring waters.

Agatha is engaging as she tries to discover just who is up to no good. Of course, the on-again, off-again love of her life and neighbor, James Lacey, goes his separate way in his investigatory efforts, as they are off-again, Agatha, as always looking for love in all the wrong places, ends up with a brief romantic fling that she quickly regrets. Moreover, her investigatory efforts land her in a bit of a pickle, and her best friend, Mrs. Bloxy, steps up to home plate and comes to the rescue, when Agatha finds herself caught between a rock and a hard place.

As with all cozy mysteries, the mystery is secondary to the evolvement of the recurring characters and the ordinary discourse of life that binds them. As always, the dialogue is laced with humor and moves the plot along at a brisk pace, and the book is peppered with a host of interesting, quirky characters that entertain the reader. This is a highly addictive series that makes the reader race off to get the next volume.

great light read....Agatha's character is quirky and fun. just enough info to carry you through the plot without a lot of gory details. I love MC Beaton's style.

I have read at least 10 of the raisin series an love every one of them. The reading is easy the characters are fun. I save her books when I want something fun to read an so far I have not been let down.
These books are completely unbelieveable, but entirely enjoyable and fun... quick reads for a summer day. I got a bit tired of Agatha chasing after James all the time, but I guess that's just her personality. She always solves the crime, too! I recommend all the Agatha Raisin books for lighthearted quick summer-day reads.
