Review: Hiss and Hers by M.C. Beaton

Cozy Mystery



Release Date:
October 16, 2012

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Agatha has fallen in love—again. 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.

My Review

I took a break from listening to the Agatha Raisin series, but I’m back again. I’m already up to #23 and it was a good one. I can’t help but laugh at Agatha’s antics. She’s a 50-something year old woman who acts like a teenager when it comes to men. Poor Agatha, she never seems to get her man.

This time she finds herself interested in the gardener, George Marston. Agatha isn’t the only woman interested in him, but she’s the only one that discovers his body. His very dead body. Of course she becomes a suspect and investigates the murder herself. She discovers that George had quite a few admirers. Agatha is determined to prove one of them was the killer, not her.

I listened to this on audio, as I listened to all the previous books on audio. They make for easy, fun listening. The murders aren’t complex. It’s more about the relationships and the characters for me. This series makes my commute to work very pleasant. I’m definitely ready for the next one.
