M.C. Beaton µ 9 READ

Mbarrassing uestions James is cold and appears annoyed with her a lot not helped when she uns into Charles a baronet who apparently was introduced in a book a couple before this one where Agatha solved a murder among walkers using his landOn the ebound from one of many fallings out with James she is put up by Charles in the spare bed in his hotel oom but they have both been drinking and when he climbs into bed with her she doesn t epulse him She subseuently feels guilty and lies to James about what happened but the police eventually tell him she slept with Charles at which point James leaves for the Turkish mainland in pursuit of the old friend who had ented him the awful accommodation and who he now suspects of drug unning This is despite the fact that attempts are being made on her life and should convince her that he cares absolutely nothing for herAfter that she tours various places with Charles trying half heartedly to solve the murder mainly because the police have efused permission for them to leave which James defied until the culprit is apprehendedThere is a lot of mooning about James and a lot of the character being tearful etc about him and obsessing and hoping he will come back despite his cold and ejecting behaviour At one point Charles says he felt like this about a girl once and it was called a teenage crush This seems exactly what it is but in a 50 something woman is grotesue The story is eally mostly about this obsession with the odd bit of detecting if you can call it that shoehorned in plus driving around and having dinner in estaurants The most interesting thing was the description of a couple of historical sites visited and a little bit of the atmosphere of North CyprusThe book does show something of the character and emotions and eads less like a synopsis than one I ead late in the series number 22 so it scrapes a 2 star ating The sixth book in the Agatha Raisin series is unlike the est in that the majority of the book takes place outside the CotswoldsThis story picks up ight where its predecessor Agatha Raisin and the Murderous Marriage left off Agatha found a note from James Lacey proclaiming his love for her but advising that he needs some time and has left for North Cypress Agatha heads off to Cypress to win James back Not only do Agatha and James become embroiled in a murder investigation but are in fact prime suspects because they were in the company of the victim at the time that she was murderedGoing into this book it all felt a bit off to me Agatha was not acting her usual self chasing after James She seemed a bit desperate in her behaviour and since when does Agatha Raisin need a man Even surprising was when Agatha hit the sheets with Sir Charles Fraith who we met in Agatha Raisin and the Walkers of Dembley and was vacationing in Cypress as well I have to say though thank heavens for Charles He gave Agatha back her verve James wasn t around much and I was initially disappointed but soon ealized that I loved Charles influence on Agatha Charles loves to goad James as you can see herein this scene Agatha is speaking to James on the telephone Charles walked into the living oom and called in his clear carrying voice What about some lunch darling and then let s go to bedAgatha flapped him angrily away but the damage was doneWho was that asked JamesCharles said Agatha weaklyI am glad you are being well looked after said James crisply You won t need meAnd.

He hung up In many ways Agatha and James are perfect for each other but they have a lovehate elationship Good on Aggie for not pining away for James while other men are making passes at herOverall even though this one was a little bit different taking place in Cypress and having Charles as Agatha s sidekick instead of James I still eally enjoyed it Beaton did include lots of history on the area which added to the general feel of something a little bit different than the usual Agatha Raisin fare Beaton seems to have shaken things up a bit which makes me wonder what is in store for this series I missed the villagers of Carsely especially Bill Wong I hope that he will be around in the next one and I hope Charles will as wellNarrator Penelope Keith was spot on as usual She is always a pleasure to listen to and the series wouldn t be the same without her I eceived this audiobook from the publisher in exchange for an honest eview I did not eceive any compensation for my eview and the views expressed herein are my own I love Agatha Raisin books Totally addictive and fun to ead they always have the knack of making me laugh and sometimes this is exactly what s needed An Agatha Raisin book a cup of co Read them All of them All 23 They are simply fabulous I love them and love Agatha Raisin The stories are set in the English Cotswolds which is where I m from so that makes them extra special but I cannot ecommend them highly enough If you want to ead about an opinionated outspoken headstrong single woman in her middle years with no money worries but men worries and murder at every turn then you too will love Agatha Raisin Just make sure you buy than one at a time because you will egret it otherwise 2 StarsThis was by far my least favorite book in the series that I ve ead so far I ve praised the series for the humor and there was not a laugh in the book I ve also praised the uirky cast of characters and this book had no likable characters at all Agatha made one bad decision after another and just seemed to feel sorry for herself over and over again She lost her fire James acted like an unfeeling idiot Charles view spoilerwas the least objectionable character in the book While selfish he at least seems to like Agatha and was a little protective of her hide spoiler I like the series and will continue Main character can be unlikeable but her frailties are among us Well narrated clean and ecommended I picked this up for two easons 1 MC Beaton has a huge place on library shelves so I figured the books must be good and 2 I needed a book set in Cyprus This is the first and last book I ll ead by MC Beaton I understand from other eviews that this is not her finest work in fact the eviews are atrocious However the heroine if you could call her that Agatha Raisin is a pathetic old woman who blatantly stalks a man who has no interest in her and acts like a slut which normally isn t a problem for me but Agatha travels all the way to Cyprus following a man she professes to love and then has sex with a virtual stranger Granted the man James Lacey is a eal jerk but then again you have to be mean in order to get id of a pestI also had issues with the travel info dumps sporadically dished up by Agatha They were interesting but travel guide ish and drew your attention from the mystery of who killed Rose Their eally wasn t a likeable character in the whole bunch Definitely not an author I would ead again.
