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.
