Cosy crime doyenne M.C. Beaton keeps delivering the goods with this her 23rd outing for the delightfully determined Cotswold-based sleuth, Agatha Raisin. Agatha falls for the local gardner but before she can snare him he is found dead and buried in a compost heap of his own making. Agatha is determined to root out the murderer even if it means stepping on the toes of some of the gardener's, many, previous inamoratas. Light, witty and engaging.

If you like M. C. Beaton you might also like to read books by Nicola Upson, Mary Deasy and Loretta Chase.

Synopsis

Agatha Raisin: Hiss and Hers by M. C. Beaton

Agatha has fallen in love - again. This time it's the local gardener, George Marston, she has her eye on. But competition for his attention abounds. With her shameless determination Agatha will do anything to get her man - including footing the bill for a charity ball in town just for the chance to dance with him. But when George is a no-show Agatha goes looking for him - and finds he has been murdered, having been bitten by a poisonous snake and buried in a compost heap. Agatha and the rest of her crew plunge into an investigation and discover that George had quite a complicated love life. And if Agatha now can't have George, at least she can have the satisfaction of confronting those women who have and finding a murderer in the process.

About the Author

M. C. Beaton

M. C. Beaton is the renowned bestselling author of the Hamish Macbeth and Agatha Raisin series. She has written many detective and romance novels alongside having an illustrious career on Fleet Street. Already a household name and, according to Anne Robinson, a ‘national treasure’, she is ranked among John Grisham and Maeve Binchy as a heavyweight of the publishing world. She divides her time between Paris and a village in the Cotswolds that is very much like Agatha's beloved Carsely.
