Publisher's Summary

Abandoned by new husband, James, Agatha Raisin hops on a plane to the South Pacific in the hope that an idyllic holiday will bring some consolation. There, she befriends a honeymooning couple but, tragically, the young bride is accidentally drowned. Returning home to the Cotswolds, Agatha finds herself involved in a strangely similar situation - a woman, dressed in a wedding gown, is found floating in the river. The police say suicide, but Agatha sets out to prove them wrong.

    "Another pleasant visit with Agatha"

    The latest addition in this series is funny, light and very enjoyable. The plot was well developed and the characters intersting and amusing. This is truly a good book.

    Story
    "Consistent Development"

    The stories remain engaging and fresh partly due to the entrance and exit, and re-entrance of various new and old characters. While Bill Wong, the Vicar's wife, and Roy remain consistent interlocutors, they are somewhat more in the background than Agatha's co-sleuths, who carry more of the weight of each story. James Lacey, Charles Fraith, and now John Armitage provide the up front foils for Agatha's detecting and their here, gone, and again here give the stories consistency and grounding. Their serial introductions keep the story line from becoming too staid. These are fun stories and provide good entertainment without the heaviness of more serious stories. Even so, these are not comedies and while there is some humor, it plays a distant role and occurs naturally as part of the story at infrequent, even sparse instances.

    Story
    "Agatha raisin and the day the floods came."

    Was very disappointed with this book. I have read many others in the series but this was just dreadful. Mrs Beaton seemed to have lost her way with wandering plot lines and indestinguishable characters. I kept having to rewind and listen again to keep up. I wonder if she has just run out of ideas . What a shame because I liked her other books .
