Publisher's Summary

Agatha Raisin's neighboring village of Ancombe is usually the epitome of quiet rural charm, but the arrival of a new mineral-water company - which intends to tap into the village spring - sends tempers flaring and divides the parish council into two stubborn camps. When Agatha, who happens to be the PR person for the water company, finds the council chairman murdered at the spring, tongues start wagging. Could one of the council members have silenced the chairman before he could cast the deciding vote? It is up to Agatha, still nursing a bruised heart from her broken engagement, to investigate the councilors, solve the crime - and promote the water company in the face of all this scandal.

    "Possibly the weakest of the series"

    In this book the author uses too much I think of the established patterns in the previous stories. The book reads oddly formulaic. The performance as usual from Penelope Keith is wonderful but the material is fairly reasonable at best

    "Not as good"

    This book in the series is interesting but not as good as others . Penelope Keith is always entertaining and is still so. Enjoyed her characterizations The story line however, is somewhat thin.

    "Oh aggie!"

    she does it again. I stumbled onto agatha raisin after seeing 'a spoonful of poison' on the NY times best seller list. I had no idea at the time it was just one in a series. I was hooked after that one and decided to start from the beginning. I love her!

    "thorrbuddy"

    There are times when our Agatha becomes a bit PATHETIC. However the "who done it" aspect remains intriguing.

    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.

    "Has M.C. Beaton Lost Her Touch???"

    A perfectly good murder mystery ruined by needless CRAP!!! PLEASE!!! This is the second in the series that I am SO disappointed in . . . Is someone else writing these? I don't like Agatha in this and the last book . . . she's hateful, sleazy, and no longer witty . . . and James has gone completely off his rocker . . . I can see by other reviewers that some are not turned off by Agatha's sleeping around with any Tom, Dick or Harry . . . but I am . . . I'm already committed . . . as I've bought the next two . . . but I'm quickly losing hope for M.C. Beaton and Agatha :(

    "Wonderful cozy mystery!"

    What a great book. Murder and mayhem as usual in the Cotswolds. Leave it to Agatha to get tangled right in the middle of it. The narrator, Penelope Keith, does a great job of bringing Agatha's character to life. I can really picture her getting ready for dates, being jealous, putting on anti-wrinkle cream and solving murders.

    "James Lacey sour note"

    Good story, great performance. However, I experience so much frustration as a reader/listener over ,the dynamics of the Lacey Raisin relationship that I am thinking twice about going on to the next book (I'm sure I will though because of the main female characters, Roy and Sir Charles.). I also am irritated at the overt rudeness of the parish council members. What terrible people!
