There is nothing more depressing for a middle-aged lovelorn woman with bald patches on her head than to find herself in an English seaside resort out of season. Agatha Raisin, her hair falling out after a run-in with a hairdresser-cum-murderess from a previous investigation, travels to an old-fashioned hotel in order to repair the damage away from the neighbors in her all-too-cozy Cotswolds village.
Unhappy about the slow results and prompted by the elderly residents of the resort, she consults the local witch for help. Agatha purchases a hair tonic (and a love potion, just in case!) and is soon sprouting hairs and capturing the fancy of the village police inspector. But the quiet town is stunned by the murder of the witch. Which of the graying guests is capable of such a brutal crime? The brassy yet endearing Agatha won’t stop until she finds the culprit-and, of course, a little love too.
Agatha Raisin and the Witch of Wyckhadden by M.C. Beaton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
OH Agatha, you’ve gone and done it again! I listened to the audiobook version, narrated by Penelope Keith, so spot-on animated and fun to listen to. Amazingly never gets dull, tuckered out, or old.
The predicaments just get so creative and even though there’s the same theme, the relationship chase, the meandering around that finds Agatha in trouble, the amateur detective entertained me once again.
Simple and flowed effortlessly in this one and I liked the placing of the big reveal in this one.
