From Publishers Weekly

When a fortune-teller tells Agatha Raisin that her destiny lies in Norfolk, the puckish 50-ish heroine of nine previous adventures in this witty series doesn't think twice about renting a cottage sight unseen in a county she's never visited. Of course, Agatha has been spurned by the love of her life, her Cotswolds neighbor James Lacey, which has a lot to do with her removing herself and her two cats, Hodge and Boswell, to the village of Fryfam. There she meets the members of the Fryfam's Women's Group, to whom she explains her presence by saying she's writing a crime novel, Death at the Manor--an unfortunate fib as the village squire, Tolly Trumpington-James, is soon murdered at his manor house. Aided by suave friend Sir Charles Fraith, Agatha sets about prying into the lives of the locals to discover who wanted the squire dead. Peculiar lights at the bottom of her garden (the work of fairies?), the theft of a heavily insured George Stubbs painting, the brief disappearance of her two cats and a second murder, that of Tolly's gamekeeper, may disturb but not shake Agatha from her quest. In the end Charles uses his charm to elicit an important clue from the ravishing barmaid at the pub popular with the Fryfam menfolk. That the social comedy largely overshadows the mystery and its solution won't bother Beaton fans, who will be far more concerned whether Agatha falls for Charles herself or wins back the feckless James in this highly amusing cozy.

From AudioFile

Beaton's feisty Agatha Raisin, British public relations expert, feminist, and amateur sleuth, moves to Norfolk on the advice of a fortune-teller to find her true love. A pin in the map leads her to Lavender Cottage in the village of Fryfam, where she finds flickering fairy lights, petty theft, and manor-house murder. Donada Peters transports the listener back to the days of gripping radio drama when actors surrounded the studio mike and eager audiences listened at the radio console. Peters's male voices are so carefully nuanced that Cotswoldman and East Anglian, gruff huntsman and suave baronet step easily off the page and delight the imagination.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another fun Agatha Raisin book--MC keep them coming! 23 mai 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I'm not sure why but I always feel sort of warm and fuzzy after I read an Agatha Raisin book (or any other book by this author in her various guises Jennie Tremayne, Marion Chesney etc. . .). There is not a lot of action or suspense, and the characters are drawn in a sort of superficial and silly way, yet I can't put Beaton's books down or wipe the smile off my face while I'm reading. Maybe that's the secret of a great mystery, I know that's the reason why I can't get enough of Agatha, middle aged woman, ex-high powered executive, and bumbling detective extraordinaire.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best one in series so far. 15 juin 2000
Par Stephen Fenn - Publié sur
M.C. Beaton has done it again. Agatha is back in top form in her latest adventure. Instead of whining about how miserable her life is, she does what she wants to without worrying what other people will think. The end of the story was a bit of a surprise, and I found myself smiling while reading it. When I closed the book, I actually cheered. Things should prove interesting if the line spoken by Sir Charles is foreshadowing.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Can't get enough of Agatha Raisin 11 juin 2000
Par Antoinette Klein - Publié sur
For those of us who love the spirited Agatha, warts and all, she's back. Determined to forget the cold-hearted James Lacey, she rents a cottage in the village of Fryfam and immediately is swept up into the village life and its mysterious happenings. Charles Fraith joins her in this novel, and although not as interesting as some of the others, it is definitely a must for those who are following her adventures and love entanglements. Some of my favorites such as Mrs. Bloxby, Ron Silver, and James Lacey only make cameo appearances in this one and I considered that a shortcoming. Also, the fact that one of the major mysteries is left unsolved was surprising to me.
I felt the ending was too rushed. We have been waiting for so long for Agatha to get her man, and when she does we miss the thrill of the engagement period. The big question, of course, is did she get the right man.
If my interpretation of the foreshadowing on the final page is correct, the next Agatha should be the best of the series thus far.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A good read 5 juin 2000
Par Avril A. Lebeau - Publié sur
I really enjoyed this book. I like a book that gets me into it in the first few pages and this one did that. I love Agatha she is so real with warts and all. She does try. The storyline was excellent and kept me on my toes and I could not decide who was the murderer plenty of suspects. I like all the main characters in these books and am always glad to see them pop up. I am eagerly awaiting the next one. It was one of those books you cannot put down but when it's finished your sorry, and want it to continue.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 NOT A FAIRY TALE... 13 juillet 2011
Par Lawyeraau - Publié sur
In this tenth book of this amusing contemporary cozy mystery series, the indomitable Agatha Raisin is trying to recover from her heartache she feels over James Lacey, who happens to be not only her neighbor but the love of her life, as well. Since he is actively avoiding her, she takes to heart the words of a fortuneteller, who advises her that Norfolk is where she should be. So, Agatha impulsively leaves her home in the Cotswolds and rents a cottage in the village of Fryfam.

Unfortunately, Agatha's expectations are not met. There are problems with the cottage. The local yokels are less than friendly. There are mysterious lights in her garden for which there is no reasonable explanation. Still, Agatha is not easily deterred, and she tries desperately to fit in with the village locals. Then one of the villagers dies under mysterious circumstances. Agatha immediately gets into the fray, only to find herself a suspect.

When her friend, Sir Charles Fraith, pays her a visit, he joins her in her investigative efforts. Let the games begin! What follows is typical Agatha Raisin. There are many twists and turns, as Agatha, our ever engaging heroine, bumbles along as she tries to discover just who is up to no good. Fans of our heroine will not be disappointed.

As always, the dialogue is laced with humor and moves the plot along at a brisk pace, and the book is peppered with a host of quirky characters that entertain the reader. Agatha herself is entertaining as always, as she engages in her investigative efforts. This is a highly addictive series that makes its fans race off to get the next volume.
