About this deal

When that didn’t work out, they went to Virginia and Marion worked as a waitress in a greasy spoon on the Jefferson Davies in Alexandria while Harry washed the dishes. If you don't come in looking for Sherlock or Miss Marple, and simple to relax while watching, you will leave with a few chuckles. So slightly guiltily (and belatedly), Agatha sets out to solve the case before the 25th rolls around. When a wealthy widow hires Agatha because she’s convinced a member of her family is trying to kill her, Agatha is intrigued---especially when the widow drops dead after high tea at the manor house.

In Agatha-vein quite a few odd happenings and developments, and yet the story did not come to a crawl like in some of the books. I enjoyed this well written and well plotted mystery with its believable characters and amusing dialogue and incidents. The murder at the manor soon felt like a subplot to the story of Toni, Agatha’s new recruit for the detective agency.Hmmmmm though ~ perhaps it needs to go the way of my former thinking that I had to finish every book that I started. I love all the re-occurring characters like Charles and Bill and Mrs Bloxey who are in each book and have been developed over 15+ books to where you know exactly what to expect. Agatha, chiamata a investigare, riuscirà ancora una volta a risolvere il caso, aiutata da una giovane impiegata. However I still have one more Agatha mystery in my current stack from the library so most likely I will finish that before I start spacing out these books.

I love Ashley Jensen's Agatha and can't wait to watch the episode of Kissing Christmas Goodbye tonight! My father got me into MC Beaton books, and while he favors the Hammish MacBeth series over the Agatha Raisin books I feel the exact opposite. Agatha is a romantic at heart and longs for a traditional English country Christmas with all her friends.Agatha sets out to find the murderer, all the while managing a pretty, teenage trainee who makes her feel old and planning for a picture-perfect Christmas, with James, all the trimmings, and perhaps even snow. Her new assistant the older detective gentleman, and the copper Bill are likeable characters, I'd rather read from their perspectives. And, for some reason, Agatha keeps jealously thinking about how young and beautiful Toni is, while older men keep chatting her up.

She left Smith’s to join Scottish Field magazine as a secretary in the advertising department, without any shorthand or typing, but quickly got the job of fashion editor instead. Can Agatha find the culprit and prevent the murderer as well as holding the perfect Christmas party? When she receives a letter from an old lady begging for protection, she can't help but spring into action. In this book Agatha has decided she is going to serve the perfect Christmas dinner, perhaps she has forgotten her attempt to do this before? If you were to give her a very thoughtful expensive gift, she would berated you and make you suffer because it wasn't perfect.

Mrs Tamworthy a rassemblé toute sa famille pour son anniversaire et compte sur la détective pour sentir le traître qui souhaite la zigouiller. Questa autrice scrive gialli leggeri da leggere, economici, con un buon formato Kindle e in un buon inglese per cui ho man mano acquistato e letto tutta la serie per svago e per migliorare il mio inglese. Full of all her usual fun (even when not intended ) I will down load the next story The 18th in the series.

There is something about her antics that i could continue to randomly read even tho its a middle way rating. Considering it’s hailed as “sharp, witty, hugely intelligent [and] unfailingly entertaining” I expected a whole lot more.Certes, au bout de 18 tomes, on connaît la chanson : Agatha Raisin a le crime dans la peau et dénoue les enquêtes sans aucune délicatesse et avec beaucoup de chance. Agatha, her trusty sidekick, Sir Charles, a new young woman, Toni - I do hope Toni will stay, have a feeling she would be too much competition for our redoubtable detective.
