Agatha Raisin and The Case of the Curious Curate (#13) by MC Beaton - OK

You always know what you are going to get with this series: a strange (cosy) murder, Agatha moping about being single, blundering around putting herself in danger and eventually solving the case with all the usual characters displaying all their usual personalities and quirks. Not really much to add to that.

Some are better than others, I think I read this too quickly after the last one as I didn't enjoy it so much. Still it whiled away a couple of days while I cleared my head of the last book. (Really I read it because I foolishly read the first chapter included at the end of the last book, I had it on kindle, I was going to the theatre and my next choice of book is a big hardback).

This is another enjoyable Agatha Raisin mystery. So far I can depend on this series to provide a good light mystery, always with a touch of humour. In this one, Agatha climbs into a suit of armour to avoid being caught breaking into a suspect's house through a coal chute!

This story s slightly better plot-wise than some of the others. There's a surprise at the end just when you think the story is ending.

I keep wondering when Agatha is going to get her PI licence. ( )

A better than average Agatha Raisin tale involving a new Curate at the church in Carsely. Needless to say Agatha falls for him,but her love soon turns sour.Several murders follow in quick succession,which she begins to investigate. This turns out to be a rather dangerous decision.
Slightly marred by a silly scene in which she scrambles into a suit of armour to escape being discovered after breaking into a house. ( )

Agatha Raisin's character develops in this outing, but her love life is still the pits. Enjoyable "cozy" mystery set in a Cotswold village. ( )
