"Beaton has a winner in the irrepressible, romance-hungry Agatha", raves the Chicago Sun Times, and the curmudgeonly Cotswold sleuth's growing legion of fans agree

In her seventh outing, Agatha Raisin, Beaton's "refreshingly sensible, wonderfully eccentric, thoroughly likeable heroine" (Booklist) finds a dead body near the natural spring in a Cotswold village. The endearingly brassy amateur detective soon finds herself at the center of a heated battle over the spring, in which everyone -- including local politicians, animal rights activists, shady entrepreneurs, and even her elusive ex-fiance, James -- seems to have an opinion. With the bodies stacking up, Agatha must protect both the spring and her own life. Once again M.C. Beaton proves that "no one does the English cozy better" (Romantic Times).
