Gloria French was a jolly widow with dyed blonde hair, a raucous laugh, and rosy cheeks. When she first moved from London to the charming Cotswold hills, she was heartily welcomed. She seemed a do-gooder par-excellence, raising funds for the church and caring for the elderly. But she had a nasty habit of borrowing things and not giving them back. They're just small things - a teapot here, a set of silverware there - so it's quite the shock when she is found dead, murdered with a poisoned bottle of elderberry wine.
Afraid the murder will be a blight on the small town, Parish councilor, Jerry Tarrant, hires private detective, Agatha Raisin, to track down the murderer, but the village is secretive, and the residents resent Agatha's investigation. Of course, that doesn't stop the ever-persistent Agatha from investigating and sticking her nose where no one wants it - especially as the suspect list grows. And, as if it isn't enough that Agatha's ex has reentered the picture and the murderer is now targeting Agatha!
With M. C. Beaton's Something Borrowed, Someone Dead, the bossy, vain, and absolutely irresistible Agatha Raisin continues to be a fan favorite.

Say something about yourself!
a new original plot, this is the Potted Gardener Book 3 and several of the others thrown together to make money. I am very disappointed. I was looking forward to this book since it was announced around March.
dark witch by nora roberts and the sum of all kisses by julia quinn
Penelope Keith does excellent performance. she did the best she can with a mediocre script.
a lot of sadness and disappointment that the series has really gone downill. the last book was bad too.
either write better plots or move onto other books. MC b eaton has too many book series she is trying to write. Readers adore Agatha as do I please give her more respect and her due with a good original plot.
I love Agatha Raisin, warts and all.
I was thrilled to see M. C. Beaton back to form with this new book. The mystery was intriguing and Agatha Raisin was her irrepressible self. Still preferred Donata Peters as the reader. Penelope Keith's voice is too old for a 50 year old.
