Review: Agatha Raisin and the Terrible Tourist by M.C. Beaton

Cozy Mystery


Blackstone Audio, Inc.

Release Date:
February 2013

This is the sixth book in the Agatha Raisin series and she’s still trying to get her handsome neighbor James Lacey to marry her. This one continues where the fifth book left off. After breaking off their engagement, James runs off to spend some time alone in Cyprus. When Agatha hears this, she heads off to Cyprus to find him and that’s where we are now.

Not only does she find James, but they once again get themselves involved in yet another murder. This one is an obnoxious tourist with a whole cast of suspects. Agatha and James put aside their personal differences and try to find a killer.

At this point in the series, it’s more about the personal relationship of Agatha and James for me. The mysteries are interesting and I love that they are short ones that I can finish listening to in a week of commuting to and from work. They aren’t complicated and remind me very much of Agatha Christie’s mysteries.

I do find myself wondering what Agatha sees in James, other than his good looks. He’s not a very nice person but then again neither is she. LOL Sometimes it’s almost stalkerish the way she follows him around. It’s also kind of sad. I’m hoping she’ll meet some wonderful man who will sweep her off her feet and make her forget all about James.  Of course since this is a long series, my mind could change about James at any time :)

Although this one isn’t my favorite, I still enjoyed it. I already started listening to the next one. It’s like a soap opera  :)
