Description

Only in the very last chapter do we have an early Christmas party, and it all falls very flat and isn’t festive. After a harrowing night at the residence, protection turns into a murder investigation when her host is found dead. Worth reading for the humor especially the grumpy villagers suddenly becoming the happy villagers at the end. In the same vein as Hamish Macbeth, M C Beaton gets away with it because you, as a reader, become fond of the characters and so when another book is churned out, you instinctively hope that maybe something good has at long last happened to the main character and so your loyalty hasn't been in vain, unfortunately as with Hamish Macbeth this never happens and you get to the end of another book saddened that you cannot get that time you have just invested, back again.

I love Ashley Jensen's Agatha and can't wait to watch the episode of Kissing Christmas Goodbye tonight! 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 don't come in looking for Sherlock or Miss Marple, and simple to relax while watching, you will leave with a few chuckles. Bloxby, and with a new hire at the agency, Toni, and a surprise at Agatha's Christmas dinner, are all quite entertaining and make this one a delightful cozy mystery. PR guru-tuned amateur sleuth Agatha Raisin is hoping to make it the best holiday yet with the reluctant help of trusty pal Roy.

I was much more engaged in the story given I had the context of the characters and setting after watching the first three seasons of the show. Ce roman voit l'arrivée d'une nouvelle recrue : Toni Gilmour, blonde, les yeux bleus, des cils clairs et un visage harmonieux. There is something about her antics that i could continue to randomly read even tho its a middle way rating.

During the dark, grey days of early December Agatha is obsessed by two things – the looming festivities, and her ex, James Lacey. To have the perfect Christmas had been a childhood dream whilst surviving a rough upbringing in a Birmingham slum. Even the murder of a Mrs Tamworthy, poisoned with hemlock, does little to distract her and yet it should, as Mrs Tamworthy had written to Agatha, telling her that one of her family wanted to see her dead before the year was out. Why I'm rereading this: The last time I read this (review here, the 18th installment of the Agatha Raisin mysteries, I really didn't know much about this mystery series. it says, ‘The house was small and grey; one of those old Cotswold houses which weather so well that it is hard to determine it’s age’.I'm continuing to enjoy the fun of these cozies which are somewhat different from the TV-series which I saw first. It was sort of a horrible experience, perhaps because of my age, to read about a protagonist so depressed about being older. Can Agatha find the culprit and prevent the murderer as well as holding the perfect Christmas party?

While bookselling, by chance, she got an offer from the Scottish Daily Mail to review variety shows and quickly rose to be their theatre critic. 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. En attendant (nous sommes au mois d'octobre), Agatha accepte de rendre visite à une vieille excentrique qui prétend être en danger. I do know that our society treats older women so much worse than older men, but this character acerbates that sad issue. When Mrs Tamworthy engages Agatha to find out who wants to kill her, it leads to many hidden, dark secrets for the Tamworthy family.Agatha is in fine form in this story still insecure, still trying to get emphysema, cirrhosis of the liver and of course a man in her life. I think in this short book, Agatha learns some important lessons, and Christmas stories are such a good setting for those life lessons. I enjoyed this well written and well plotted mystery with its believable characters and amusing dialogue and incidents.
