About this deal

Agatha has also taken a new young detective under her wing, somewhat becoming the surrogate mother to Tony. When that didn’t work out, they went to Virginia and Marion worked as a waitress in a greasy spoon on the Jefferson Davies in Alexandria while Harry washed the dishes. Toni will become a mainstay of the book series until the present day, unlike many of the temporary hires whom Agatha goes through.

Ce roman voit l'arrivée d'une nouvelle recrue : Toni Gilmour, blonde, les yeux bleus, des cils clairs et un visage harmonieux. Rich Mrs Tamworthy has written to her and said one of her relatives wants her dead before Christmas. I'm continuing to enjoy the fun of these cozies which are somewhat different from the TV-series which I saw first. PR guru-tuned amateur sleuth Agatha Raisin is hoping to make it the best holiday yet with the reluctant help of trusty pal Roy. Agatha is in fine form in this story still insecure, still trying to get emphysema, cirrhosis of the liver and of course a man in her life.And, for some reason, Agatha keeps jealously thinking about how young and beautiful Toni is, while older men keep chatting her up. On a trip from the States to Sutherland on holiday, a course at a fishing school inspired the first Constable Hamish Macbeth story. Filming was originally due to start March 12, 2020 before the coronavirus pandemic forced production to shut down. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

Hmmmmm though ~ perhaps it needs to go the way of my former thinking that I had to finish every book that I started. The detective agency starts digging around (literally) and they come up with several suspects and lots of trouble.

The main drama in this story is actually the hiring of the teenage detective Toni Gilmour, whom Agatha takes a protective wing over, probably seeing her own difficult youth reflected in the youngster. Eager to soak up every ounce of drama, Agatha puts everyone in the village under a microscope, including the victim’s own children.

I love Ashley Jensen's Agatha and can't wait to watch the episode of Kissing Christmas Goodbye tonight! Despite being told by Bill Wong to keep away, Agatha started to investigate in her own brash manner.Only two things seem to offer potential excitement: the upcoming Christmas festivities and her ex, James Lacey. There is a hint of depth there, a kernel of a much more interesting personality, but it was never developed in this book. Toni and Charles infiltrate a pagan clan while Agatha, Roy and Sarah investigate the victim's family and workers at the Lower Tapor mansion.

Only in the very last chapter do we have an early Christmas party, and it all falls very flat and isn’t festive. Her biggest hope is that her ex James Lacey will be back in the village in time for the celebration. Who in this rather sterile house, complete with fake family portraits, could have hated the old lady enough to poison her? With business booming for Agatha Raisin Detective Agency, Agatha’s in need of a well-earned break and with Christmas just around the corner it looks like the perfect opportunity to relax.Never mind, I have got used to series now, and I have to say that this book has quite a convoluted plot, maybe a few too many murders (is she vying with the TV series, Midsomer Murders? Jumping into a series on book eighteen is a bit crazy, but this fit a prompt for a challenge so I went for it. This was followed by a move to Fleet Street to the Daily Express where she became chief woman reporter. Even the murder of a Mrs Tamworthy, poisoned with hemlock, does little to distract her and yet it should, as Mrs Tamworthy had written to Agatha, telling her that one of her family wanted to see her dead before the year was out.
