THIS TIME, SHE’S GOT HERSELF IN A JAM
Agatha Raisin’s detective agency has become so successful that now all she wants is some R&R. But as soon as she cuts back her hours, Agatha remembers that when she has too much quality time, she doesn’t know what to do with it. So it doesn’t take much for the vicar of a nearby village to persuade her to help publicize the church fête—especially when the fair’s organizer, George Selby, happens to be a gorgeous widower. Problem is: Several of the offerings in the jam-tasting booth turn out to be poisoned…and the festive family event soon becomes a murder scene. Now Agatha must uncover the truth behind the jam tampering and expose the nasty secrets lurking in the seemingly innocent village—all while falling for handsome George, who may just have some secrets of his own.
It was nice to revisit Agatha and friends. I quite enjoyed that everyone was involved - Mrs. Bloxby, Charles, Bill, and Roy. It was a bit disappointing to discover what an ungrateful bitch Toni turned out to be though, as she was really growing on me.
This one gets seven stars. It was a nice, solid, fast read with a culprit that I really quite enjoyed discovering was responsible. I'm certainly looking forward to the next Raisin being released!
