But the village is secretive and the residents resent Agatha's investigation. Of course that doesn't stop the ever-persistent Agatha from investigating and sticking her nose where no one wants it—especially as the suspect list grows. And, as if it isn't enough that Agatha's ex has reentered the picture, the murderer is now targeting Agatha!
With M.C. Beaton's Something Borrowed, Someone Dead the bossy, vain, and absolutely irresistible, Agatha Raisin continues to be a fan favorite.
About the Author
M. C. BEATON, who was the British guest of honor at Bouchercon 2006, has been hailed as the "Queen of Crime" (The Globe and Mail). In addition to her New York Times and USA Today bestselling Agatha Raisin novels, Beaton is the author of the Hamish Macbeth series and four Edwardian mysteries. Born in Scotland, she currently divides her time between the English Cotswolds and Paris.
I just love Agatha Raisin. I've followed her adventures through all 24 books. She is hilarious, outrageous and downright loveable! M.C. Beaton does an admirable job of portraying well-off, self-absorbed, middle-aged and slight desperate Agatha.
The mystery is set in the nearby village of Piddlebury. An obnoxious widow who had a tendency to borrow but not return things is murdered. It is a secretive village consisting of long term residents...is that a hint of witchcraft in the air...
Agatha seems to be mellowing out somewhat. Not quite as desperate or unfeeling. Still a highly enjoyable read. It is always wonderful to visit Agatha Raisin's universe...
