Publisher's Summary

Agatha Raisin, retired PR supremo, has been spurned at the alter by the man of her dreams - her attractive neighbor James Lacey. So temporarily deserting the sleepy Cotswold village of Carsely, she pursues her fleeing fiancé to north Cyprus where, instead of enjoying a romantic honeymoon, they witness the killing of an obnoxious tourist in a disco. Can the duo forget their differences and resume their strangely successful sleuthing partnership?

    "Love the TV adaptation; not the audiobook"

    Narrator's voice was too old and too angry for the main characters. First time I've liked a TV version over a book. Wouldn't buy another Agatha Raisin book having heard this one. I was disappointed in the story as well.

    Story
    "could have skipped this episode."

    Loved the first five books, but this one had too much arguing and fighting. Also, too much filler, with one character or another reading from a travel book about the area. The reader is wonderful, or I would have returned it.

    Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.

    Story
    ". . . Off on a Rabbit Trail . . . to Cyprus"

    As a fan of Agatha Raisin, I was really looking forward to Book 6 in the series . . . but this one fell short for me . . . Agatha follows James Lacey to Cypress, where he ran off following their "almost" marriage . . . the tale had the promise of so much . . . but instead it was a cat and mouse story of Agatha pursuing James . . . James being wishy washy . . . and then a murder in Cyprus . . . and poor dissed Agatha falling into bed with Sir Charles Fraith . . . moving from a love affair with James to casual sex is too much for me . . . not at all like our Agatha . . . also missing is our fun and feisty sleuth with her sidekick, James . . . surely hoping the next installment is better :(

    "Mixed Feelings"
    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I love seeing Agatha develop over the course of the series, but this installment made me sad! James is so unworthy of her affection, and I felt so sorry for poor Agatha. Sure, she makes a lot of ill-advised decisions and digs herself into holes, but he is so cruel and cold. I hope she moves on to better men in the future.

    Also, I missed the Carsley characters. 99% of the story takes place abroad, and I missed Bill Wong and Mrs. Bloxby.

    Story
    "Addictive and Irritating"
    What made the experience of listening to Agatha Raisin and the Terrible Tourist the most enjoyable?

    Agatha finally stood up to James! Yay, I really find it hard to pity the guy.


    What other book might you compare Agatha Raisin and the Terrible Tourist to and why?

    Any other in the series, it truly is one of a kind.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The final scene, not because it was finished but because James was the one waiting like a sad puppy for once.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    A lot of rage. These characters were somewhat likeable together, but when they fight wish I could smack some sense into them sometimes.


    Any additional comments?

    A peak in the series. Finally there is some, a nanometer really, of personal growth in our main character. Hopefully the next book doesn't have her backsliding.

    "Enjoyable listen"

    I liked the narrator, the story was a typical Raisin. All right, nothing mind blowing. This is set outside of her village.
