The personal life part really drags now

I have enjoyed the cozy mystery series. It is my version of binge and escapism. It is not Agatha Christie, but I like the “cozy” aspects: English village, nosy neighbors, people who got killed are always horrible...Raisin is a bull in a china shop, but l like her for it too.
Alas she has the emotional maturity of a teenager. Her relationship with James has to be one of the most toxic I know either in life or on paper. At first it might have been amusing. After all, unhappy people are more interesting subjects. Agatha making bad choices in such a bad way was supposed to humanize her, I guess? Though not very convincingly. Maybe more because of lazy writing. Then this abusive relationship has become a black hole that just suck the energy out of the book. I cannot help notice that the few books without James (therefore without the pair hurling insults at each other) are much tighter. Charles is amoral, vapid and cheap, but he is way more interesting a character.
Not sure whether I will finish this book even it comes free with membership. Maybe time to take a break.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
