"A glorious cross between Miss Marple, Auntie Mame and Lucille Ball with a tad of pit bull tossed in. She's wonderful." St. Petersburg Times Feisty Agatha Raisin, until recently a public-relations executive in London, has retired to peaceful Cotswold, where a romance is budding with the attractive new village vet, Dr. Paul Bladen. But Bladen accidentally kills himself while attending to Lord Pendlebury's horse, and Agatha must turn to her distinguished neighbor, the retired military man James Lacey, for comfort. Together, the odd couple begin to investigate Dr. Bladen's death . . . and the curious lack of sorrow shown by his divorced wife. But will they succeed in unmasking a killer before suffering an "accident" of their own?

display_description Life in the English Cotswolds hasn't been all Agatha Raisin thought it would be. Retired early from a successful career in public relations, she longs for a little romance and excitement. After all, Carsley must have more to offer than tea with the village ladies. But friendly overtures toward her neighbor James Lacey have him running for the door every time. So when a handsome new veterinarian arrives in town, Agatha sees a chance to give her bruised ego a boost. But something sinister lurks beneath the vet's charming veneer: He has the village ladies riled up over his rough treatment of their pets and he has the nerve to make a date with Agatha and then not show up. Just when Agatha begins to hear some odd stories about him, he is killed.
