Summary

Agatha Raisin's neighbouring village of Ancombe is usually the epitome of quiet rural charm, but the arrival of a new mineral water company - which intends to tap into the village spring - sends tempers flaring and divides the parish council into two stubborn camps. When Agatha, who happens to be the PR person for the water company, finds the council chairman murdered at the spring, tongues start wagging. Could one of the council members have silenced the chairman before he could cast the deciding vote?
It is up to Agatha, still nursing a bruised heart from her broken engagement, to investigate the councillors, solve the crime - and promote the water company in the face of all this scandal.

Highly enjoyable light listening

This is not my usual fare. I came across the first 4 novels in a compendium I bought by impulse in a sale. I read and thoroughly enjoyed them as a some holiday reading.



The audiobooks are well enough read by Penelope Keith. Some of the characterisations may be a bit lacking but the story telling is engaging.



As bed time listening they are recommended.
