I'm also joining in Book Beginnings on Friday. It's hosted by Rose City Reader

I'm looking forward to getting back to reading this series.  This is the next one on my list and is #26.

First Chapter

After a dismal grey winter, spring came to the village of Carsely in the Cotswolds, bringing blossoms, blue skies and warm breezes.

But somewhere, in the heart of one private detective, Agatha Raisin, storms were brewing.

From 56% on my Kindle...

Agatha explained who she was and then said she was interested in the night of the fire at the school.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

A therapist had moved into the village of Carsely and Agatha Raisin hates her. Not only was this therapist, Jill Davent, romancing Agatha's ex-husband, but she had dug up details of Agatha's slum background.

Added to that, Jill was counselling a woman called Gwen Simple from Winter Parva and Agatha firmly believed Gwen to have assisted her son in some grisly murders, although has no proof she had done so.

A resentment is different from a dislike and needs to be shared, so as the friendship between James and Jill grows stronger, the more Agatha does to try to find out all she can about her. When Jill is found strangled to death in her office two days' later, Agatha finds herself under suspicion - and must fight to clear her name. 

What do you think?  What are you sharing today?


  1. Oh wow the 26th installment of a series? That some serious writing going on! This sounds like it will be fun and dishy until it all turns dangerous! I hope you enjoy it and have a lovely weekend :)

  2. I love that shade of green on the cover. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I have watched some shows about Agatha Raisin, so I've been wanting to read the books. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “SURVIVE THE NIGHT”

  4. I've read one Agatha Raisin mystery and enjoyed it so I should pick up from the series again soon! Happy weekend!

  5. Agatha Raisin. What a funny name. Is the book humorous? My Friday quotes are here

  6. Weird coincidence, but I just saw several books in this series at our library's used book sale. I had never heard of Agatha Raisin and I didn't pick them up. They sound intriguing, so maybe I should go back.

  7. Agatha Raisin is one of those characters that I can never make up my mind if I love her or hate her. However, I'm always entertained by her even when I'm leaning towards hating her! This one sounds good!

  8. It's been years since I read an Agatha Raisin mystery. Dishing the Dirt sounds fun. I hope you enjoy it!
