Publisher's Summary

Agatha Raisin thinks she’s in for a treat when her ex-husband, James Lacey, invites her on a holiday. But to her horror, his idea of an exotic destination is a small, rundown resort of Snoth-on-Sea. Needless to say, the break doesn’t go as planned. When a fellow guest in their hotel is found murdered, Agatha herself becomes a suspect - and it looks as if she will be solving this particular case from the confines of a prison cell....

Another great story in a fantastic series

This was a particularly good plot with murder, intrigue, and an excellent cast of characters. I am truly loving the Vicar's Wife coming into her own. She is becoming more than a sounding board, much to the dislike of Agatha. I believe their friendship is becoming a real one of give and take, speaking honestly to each other though that might be painful at times. Agatha is slowly growing up and becoming a more empathetic person and I'm very happy for her.
Once again, the narration was fantastic. It looks like the next book has a different narrator and I'm a little nervous about this. Hopefully she's good. We will see.

James or Charles?

Another great mystery with new characters and all of the favorites - Mrs. B is one of my favorites. And Penelope Keith out does herself with accents and dialects. She is an absolute marvel! Don't miss this one!

Narrator not my favorite

I am really annoyed by this narrator's over-zealous approach to this series. There is no difference between the highs and the lows in her narration. There is only super agitated.
The story is good, but I will not continue listening- unfortunately.

Great story

James invites Agatha on vacation then abandons her. Agatha being Agatha pulls herself together solves the crime and realizes that James isn't the fantasy that has been in her dreams. This is a great book.
