I am hooked on this series which has Agatha Raisin as the main character .Who lives in a sleepy village called Carsely in the Cotswold. The start of the book I read that Agatha was preparing to marry her next door neighbour James Lacey she had sold her house and put all her furniture into storage.
Her dear friend Roy Silver and work colleague from London wanted some form of revenge after he felt he had been snubbed during a previous case which they were both did not like the idea of Agatha Raisin as he knew she had been married before and was not certain whether he was a live or dead so he started to search for Mr Raisin yes he did find him and so on the day that the wedding ceremony and at the crucial point in the wedding proceedings there was a disturbance and a policeman and Agatha's first husband who she did think had died came in. Further talks then were held and the wedding sadly was cancelled. James left on his own in a upset and furious state ,when Agatha went back to her cottage that she had sold she then tried to cancel the house sale arranged to get her furniture out of store and provisions from a local shop.She hoped to buy back her house from Mrs Hardy and would even offer her more money than she paid for it.
She did not realise that her husband had been murdered and then police came round took her down to the police station where she was told she was a suspect of murder. Also James Lacey was a suspect so they both started to work together to find out who actually did the murder. There relationship had changed from a happy couple who was getting married to a couple who just tolerated each other just determined to clear their names.
It is a very easy read and the plots are very predictable. Very enjoyable and humorous in parts .
