Agatha Raisin: Something Borrowed, Someone Dead
Agatha Raisin: Something Borrowed, Someone Dead | M.C. Beaton
Incomer Gloria French is at first welcomed in the Cotswold village of Piddlebury. She seems like a do-gooder par excellence, raising funds for the church and caring for the elderly. But she has a bad habit of borrowing things and not giving them back, so when she is discovered dead, poisoned by a bottle of elderberry wine, folk in the village don't mourn her passing too intently. Parish councillor Jerry Tarrant hires Agatha Raisin to track down the murderer. But the village is creepy and secretive and the residents don't seem to want Agatha to find who the murderer is, and Agatha's investigations are hampered by the emotional upset of finding her ex, James Lacey, has fallen in love with young detective Toni Gilmour. And now the murderer is targeting Agatha!

I adored this title by M.C Beaton, from the cover to the wonderful story written amongst the pages!
Definitely recommend the Agatha Raisin series to those seeking a humorous, light murder mystery. ☺

I love cozy mysteries. Agatha Raisin did not disappoint. I watched the Agatha Raisin tv series, and although there are some differences, I can honestly say I like both the books and the tv series.
Did some baking. Tea, a muffin and on to another new book.

I love watching Agatha Raisin on tv. I have never read the books, so I decided to pick one up at the library. Hope it‘s as good as the tv show.

Another fun and interesting read in the Agatha Raisin Series, although in this one she descends into the village from hell! What is it about these quiet rural English villages, they are deathly; just ask Miss Marple and so many others.

Started the next book in the Agatha Raisin Series. These are always good quick and entertaining reads, and already give me a good laugh! She may not be my favourite of characters but funny things do happen around her, not to mention deaths!

TheCanuckReader I'm working my way through them too :) 2y
Andrew65 @TheCanuckReader Where are you up to? 2y
TheCanuckReader I haven't been able to get them all in the proper order. I read up to #4, then 15, 22, 23...lol 2y
Andrew65 @TheCanuckReader It is one of those series you don't need to read in order. A lot of my early reading in this series wasn't in order, likewise with her Hamish MacBeth series I am reading. 2y
TheCanuckReader Yep. Espec since they give a good recap about the various characters in the beginning of most books 2y
