Synopsis

Recently married to James Lacey, the witty and fractious Agatha Raisin quickly finds that marriage, and love, are not all they are cracked up to be. Rather than basking in marital bliss, the newlyweds are living in separate cottages and accusing each other of infidelity. After a particularly raucous fight in the local pub, James suddenly vanishes-a bloodstain the only clue to his fate-and Agatha is the prime suspect. 

Determined to clear her name and find her husband, Agatha begins her investigation. But her sleuthing is thwarted when James’s suspected mistress, Melissa, is found murdered. Joined by her old friend Sir Charles, Agatha digs into Melissa’s past and uncovers two ex-husbands, an angry sister, and dubious relations with bikers. Are Melissa’s death and James’s disappearance connected? Will Agatha reunite with her husband or will she find herself alone once again?

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Agatha Raisin and the Love from Hell by M.C. Beaton

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So funny. I listened to the audiobook version, narrated by Penelope Keith, always my favorite way to enjoy this series. I’d recommend this series to anyone looking for a lighthearted, older in wisdom yet relevant look at life circumstances in a humorous way.

The Story
I’m so invested in it. Agatha does so much wrong at the same time someone who can’t do any wrong. This is just a continuation of her blunders and celebrations, this relationship she pursues one more time.

The Writing
I really appreciate the cut and dry approach. Nothing overly description, but there is plenty of description when it comes to people and their clothes, which is my favorite part as the characterization is so easy to establish my mind around the humor and personality that Beaton brings to the scene.

Favorite Lines
“What can I do that the police can’t?”
“You’ve never let that stop you before.”
