This time it's the local gardener, George Marston, she has her eye on. But competition for his attention abounds. With her shameless determination Agatha will do anything to get her man - including footing the bill for a charity ball in town just for the chance to dance with him. But when George is a no-show Agatha goes looking for him - and finds he has been murdered, having been bitten by a poisonous snake and buried in a compost heap.
Agatha and the rest of her crew plunge into an investigation and discover that George had quite a complicated love life. And if Agatha now can't have George, at least she can have the satisfaction of confronting those women who have and finding a murderer in the process.

Another Enjoyable Tale
Once again Agatha Raisin hits the mark, enjoyable to the end with such wonderful narration. A little escapism, a little fun and always a tittering moment within the pages.
A pleasure and just as good as the others in the series. If you want something unchallenging, entertaining that holds your attention then Agatha will not let you down.

Comfort-listening at its best
Listening to an Agatha Raisin audiobook is like curling up under a merino wool blanket with a large mug of tea on a rainy afternoon. It is a comforting, entertaining listen that's easy to follow and doesn't lose too much if you're multi-tasking (in my case, marking 180 exercise books and fending off a tantrumming toddler).
If you want a gentle, humorous, entertaining whodunnit then this is it. Old fans of Ms Raisin won't be disappointed and, though I would advise anyone to start with the first in the series (The Quieche of Death) and work their way through, I don't think it matters too much in terms of following the plot if you're new to Agatha's antics.
Not a highbrow literary masterpiece; not an edge-of-your-seat, hair-on-end, scare-a-minute thriller... but it loses nothing for this - a rib-tickling caper with a few close scrapes thrown in - Keep them coming Ms Beaton!
