Something Borrowed, Someone Dead: An Agatha Raisin Mystery by M. C. Beaton

By M. C. Beaton

Gloria French was once a jolly widow with dyed blonde hair, a raucous chortle and rosy cheeks. whilst she first moved from London to the fascinating Cotswolds hills, she used to be heartily welcomed.  She appeared a do-gooder par excellence, elevating money for the church and taking good care of the elderly.  yet she had a bad behavior of borrowing issues and never giving them again, simply small issues, a teapot the following, a suite of silverware there.  So it truly is particularly the surprise while she is located lifeless, murdered via a poisoned bottle of elderberry wine.  Afraid the homicide could be a blight at the small city, Parish councillor, Jerry Tarrant, hires inner most detective Agatha Raisin to trace down the murderer.

But the village is secretive and the citizens resent Agatha's investigation. Of direction that does not cease the ever-persistent Agatha from investigating and sticking her nostril the place nobody desires it—especially because the suspect checklist grows. And, as though it is not adequate that Agatha's ex has reentered the image, the assassin is now concentrating on Agatha!

With M.C. Beaton's Something Borrowed, Someone Dead  the bossy, useless, and totally impossible to resist, Agatha Raisin is still a fan favorite.
