Agatha Raisin has always been ambivalent about holiday cheer, but her cozy little village of Carsely has long prided itself on its Christmas festivities. But this year Mr. John Sunday, a selfimportant officer with the Health and Safety Board, has ruled that the traditional tree on top of the church is a public menace; that lampposts are unsafe for hanging illuminations; that May Dimwoody’s homemade toys are dangerous for children… Things have reached such a desperate pass that the Carsely Ladies’ Society joins forces with the ladies in the neighboring village of Odley Cruesis to try to put a stop to Mr. Sunday’s meddling—only to find that someone has literally put a stop to him with a kitchen knife.
Agatha’s detective agency is on the case, but when a man has made as many enemies as John Sunday, it’s hard to know where to start…
I love Agatha!!! Fun Fun Fun!!! What is there not to love about a man-crazy, slightly overweight, chain smoking lovable middle aged woman! Throw in her own detective agency along with it's cast of sleuths and the Cotswold setting and you have the ingredients for a delightful romp in the UK. Both James and Charles put in appearances as usual...just enough to drive her crazy! A little bit of a Christmas bent just to make it timely for a Christmas read. Keep the Agatha Raisin adventures coming M.C. Beaton!!!
