    Agatha Raisin is at it again, making very poor decisions. But t

    Agatha Raisin is at it again, making very poor decisions. But this time she is so blindingly determined to marry James that she almost commits Bigamy! Problem is, she knows that it's a possibility because she only thinks her husband is dead. Jimmy Raisin was a chronic alcoholic, but there's nothing to show he's dead. So Agatha tells everyone he is, she even lies to her only close friend, Mrs. Bloxby. Her former employee, Roy, does what Agatha should have done. He hires a private detective who finds the very much alive Mr. Raisin. He shows up at the wedding, and James Lacy leaves because he has to and it's an embarassment for him. I didn't care too much for this Agatha Raisin because the emphasis was too much on the foolishness of Agatha's personal life which imploded due to her bad decisions. I think the Agatha - James Lacey partnership is getting old too. Both of them need to move on to other people to whom they are more suited. I also find that Agatha's tantrums and use of expletives detracts to what little there is of the mystery. She's not very likable here.

    The above description of this book is misleading. Agatha Raisin

    The above description of this book is misleading. Agatha Raisin is a thoroughly vulgar, nasty, and self-absorbed nutcase. At the recommendation of a friend I read this book and I'm sure I won't read another. Within the first few pages of the book we are told that Agatha Raisin knowingly sets out to marry James Lacey and tells everyone that her husband is dead, but without any proof or death certificate. This so-called intelligent woman assumes or wishes him dead because he was a serious drunk. She even selects a particular registry office to get married because she knows the clerk to be too old, deaf and incurious to ask for any proof that she is divorced or widowed. She uses her passport with her maiden name! When the very much alive hubby shows up at the wedding, James Lacey leaves, totally humiliated. Agatha goes on to whine, and whimper that he did not stand by her through HER experience!! Not to worry, because these two deserve each other. They find out that Jimmy Raisin was murdered and together they illegally break into a Spa and private homes to sniff out clues. Agatha Raisin even impersonates an officer to get information! If any woman even smiles at Lacey, Agatha has vicious thoughts and obscene words for the female in her path. These two deserve each other, playing foolish mind games like teenagers who want to make each other jealous. They even hate the poor animals who get in the path of their car during a densely foggy day!. The book is full of vulgarities, mainly spoken or in the thoughts of Agatha Raisin. The main focus of the book is on Agatha's personal life, with vague references to the crimes. I love the Hamish MacBeth series so I tried one of the Agatha Raisin books. There won't be another.

    Thoroughly Enjoyable...

    My first book was The Haunted House...I found it so enjoyably light and amusing that I decided to start at the beginning...and so I did!
    "Meeting" Agatha for the first time, "The Quiche Of Death," was delightful enough to keep me reading on through the rest of her escapades and adventures. To date, I am beginning her 6th story, The Terrible Tourist'" and am looking forward to the following 16! I do hope Ms. Beaton continues on into Agatha's very golden years!

    AGATHA IS GREAT!!!!

    All the M C Beaton books I have read have been good. I like the Agatha Raisin and the Hamish Macbeath series. In this one, Agatha is finally getting to marry James Lacey, or so she thinks. He first husband, Jimmy Raisin, shows up at the wedding. Agatha had thought he was dead. Later Agatha is seen pushing Jimmy into a ditch and Jimmy is found dead in the ditch. Agatha is arrested for murder. She is finally released and she and Lacey set out to find the real killer. The way they do it, their words and actions are very good. Seems most of the people they question end up being killed. They finally figure it out but Agatha nearly meets her doom in doing so. Will Agatha and James get married? Guess it will take at least another book to find out. Beaton writes so I can just see the people and the village in my mind. She is very good.

    The series is quite entertaining

    Poor Agatha Raisin and James Daily seem to be confused about their real feelings for each other. They both love one another deeply, but at different times in their lives.

    Easy read..

    Agatha is, as always, in the middle of all kinds of problems. Her retirement certainly isn't relaxing, as she hoped.

    Poor Agatha

    She's at it again. She has finally persuaded James Lacey to marry her and her first husband that she hoped was dead turns up at the wedding and brings it all to a halt. Then he is discovered dead and she is the number one suspect.

    Light and Fun

    Though murder is hardly a hilarious subject, MC Beaton keeps things lightly moving along in this tale of a serial killer in a tiny English village. The redoubtable amateur detective pair, Agatha Raisin and her on-again, off-again fiance James, once again get involved in a criminal investigation despite warnings from the police. The books in this series are always fun; this is no exception.

    Modern Agatha Christie Sleuth

    This is the 1st book I've read in the Agatha Raisin series; it was suggested by one of the library staff workers. I just loved it.Agatha Raisin is very much a modern day business woman. She is quite 'outspoken' at times which sometimes gets her into a bit of trouble.She is like a younger Miss Marple,but a little more womanly so to speak and occassionly swears.A book definately worth reading!I did not want to give out any details in the book because it would ruin the thought process for the readers. I plan to read the other in this series myself this summer.
