Agatha Raisin and the Love from Hell by MC Beaton - ok
Usual stuff. Thankfully, having left it a while since I last read one of this series, I didn't find Agatha too annoying. Basically I needed a quick read (on my kindle) that didn't stretch me too much and this fitted the bill. ( )

Not my favourite but an entertaining read none the less ( )

I enjoyed reading it -- it's one of the best in the series. ( )

Tried several times to finish this but just kept bouncing off.

A longer and slightly more serious story than usual,in which Agatha ,who is finally married to James Lacey finds everything is not so rosy as she had hoped.
On the whole however this is the usual Agatha Raisin with the usual murders and the solving of them,often by default. There is a spooky bit involving dolls and scissors,which could have been made much more of,but that tailed off into thin air.
Overall a readable page-turner in the series. ( )

Agatha Raisin Has Finally Married The Man Of Her Dreams.
But Now Her Life Is Nothing Short Of A Nightmare...

The honeymoon is most definitely over for Agatha Raisin and her new husband, James Lacey. It's only been a short time since their wedding-and already they aren't getting on. But his wandering eye and her God-awful housekeeping are the least of their problems. Just days after a very public, very ugly marital row, James disappears-and when his mistress is later found murdered, he's the prime suspect. Agatha just doesn't buy it. Sure, he's a liar and a sneaky, low-down cheat. But a murderer? That's bloody impossible! And as some speculate on the role Agatha may have played in his vanishing, the forever-feisty Mrs. Raisin must piece together the most unsavory parts of the dead woman's past to clear James's name-and her own...
