Agatha Raisin and a Spoonful of Poison: Agatha Raisin, Book 19 | [M. C. Beaton]

Agatha Raisin and a Spoonful of Poison: Agatha Raisin, Book 19

Agatha Raisin's detective agency has become so successful that she decides to take time off for rest and relaxation. But as soon as she does, she remembers that when she does have time on her hands, 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 publicise the church fete - especially when the event organiser, George Selby, turns out to be a handsome widower.

Publisher's Summary

Agatha Raisin's detective agency has become so successful that she decides to take time off for rest and relaxation. But as soon as she does, she remembers that when she does have time on her hands, 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 publicise the church fete - especially when the event organiser, George Selby, turns out to be a handsome widower.

Agatha brings out the crowds for the fete all right, but there’s more going on than innocent village fun. Several of the offerings in the jam-tasting booth turn out to be poisoned, and the festive entertainment becomes the scene of two murders. Will Agatha find enough time to flirt with gorgeous George?

    "Curl up, grab a cuppa and relax"

    Agatha Raisin fans won't be disappointed - just what we've come to expect; gentle humour, mild peril and some - almost accidentally - successful detecting from the Cotswolds' favourite sleuth.

    If you're after page-turning, white-knuckle, extreme thrillers or whodunnits then Mrs Raisin is not for you; if you enjoy Murder She Wrote, Poirot and Stephanie Plum them this is probably right up your alley. Gentle, enjoyable and comforting rather than stupa ting and challenging; I've meanly held off one star on storyline as there are no massive surprises in an Agatha Raisin (mostly because there's a limited number of new characters in each one so it's always one of them for some reason or another!) but fans of Aggie will know that this isn't the appeal or the point - highly recommended for a grey winters day; stick it on, curl up with a cuppa and relax in your Jim-jams... Perfect!

    "Bitten by the bug"

    This is the first book I listened to from M C Beaton and I am now working my way through the rest. I loved the easy listening and the plot and Penelope Keiths voice is good with the characters. Very enjoyable .

    "Can't put the book down"

    I found this audio is really good. I couldn't put the audiobook down. I wanted to know what happens next. I had to take my I pad everywhere and I read it within a couple of days. The audiobook and the book together made it equally exciting.... If you want a book that you don't want to put down this is the one for you.
