After a disastrous marriage attempt, Agatha Raisin needs a break from reality. She decides to go on a peaceful holiday to the South Pacific. It’s not all that peaceful when a young bride drowns. She returns home to the Cotswolds where a similar incident occurs when a young woman is found dead in a river. The woman’s fiancé tops Agatha’s list of suspects and she’s determined to prove she’s right.
Unfortunately, Agatha’s partners in crime-solving are no longer in the picture – James and Charles have both left town. Agatha seeks the help of her new neighbor, author James Armitage. As a mystery writer, Agatha figures he’s more than qualified to help her investigate.
The story takes a few different twists and turns. Agatha makes me laugh as she continues to, also, make me want to shake some sense into her.
I took a bit of a break from listening to the audios, but now I’m back again. These are like potato chips – as soon as I finish one, I want another. Now we even have a new character – James Armitage – and I’m looking forward to seeing how he fits into future stories.
