Descriptions du produit

From Publishers Weekly

The blunt Agatha Raisin, with her stocky figure and "bearlike eyes," makes for an unusual sleuth, and her fifth outing (after Agatha Raisin and the Walkers of Dembley, 1995) certainly makes for an unusual adventure. The former public relations powerhouse who left London and a career for a simpler life in a Cotswold country village is about to marry her handsome next-door neighbor. But the wedding ceremony is halted mid-vow by the arrival of Jimmy Raisin, the husband Agatha fervently hoped was dead and has neglected to mention to James Lacey, the fastidious, upstanding citizen currently waiting to tie the knot. Even less convenient than a living husband who interrupts your wedding is one who, shortly thereafter, turns up dead in a ditch in the immediate neighborhood. Naturally, Agatha and James top the suspect list. But the dead Jimmy was a down-and-out alcoholic who had been known to practice a bit of blackmail. Agatha and James track down some of his victims, who have a distressing tendency to die shortly after being questioned by the two. With bodies stacking up and James refusing to marry Agatha (even though she has already sold her cottage), the atmosphere becomes nicely tense. Beaton, who also pens the Hamish MacBeth series, gleefully creates one excruciating situation after another for her indomitable heroine to endure.

From Library Journal

Agatha Raisin (as in Agatha Raisin and the Walkers of Dembley, LJ 3/1/95) had long presumed her first husband dead when she married her attractive neighbor, but then Jimmy Raison suddenly turns up. When someone murders him that same night, Agatha becomes the prime suspect. A great series.

Pour raviver mon anglais, j'ai pu suivre sans trop de difficultés le récit et bénéficier du suspense ! Une héroîne pas si standard qui change des Rouletabilles toujours vainqueurs à coup sûr.

Quel plaisir de voir Agatha préparer son mariage avec l'homme de sa vie James Lacey! Mais un événement va se produire pour gâcher la cérémonie. a partir de cette trame MCBeaton construit un roman policier plaisant agréable à lire. Il se lit facilement et donne envie de se plonger dans la suite . Il y a beaucoup d'humour dans cette histoire, profitez de l'été pour vous y plonger.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another great pick from the grapevine 25 août 1997
Par Judith L. Burken - Publié sur
With each new book, Agatha becomes a more delightful
character (at least to me).

An errant husband reappears and
interrupts Agatha's marriage vows almost in midsentence of
"I do."

When he is murdered, Agatha becomes the main
suspect as well as a scorned fiancee. But while James may
not be of a marriage mind with Agatha, he is still of the
investigative mind. And so off they go to solve the murder.

The usual secondary characters are back and Bill, the local
police officer, even has a love interest.

With little former
background on James Lacy, we do discover here that he is
very well versed in the art of lock picking, even having his
own set of tools.

And a clearer idea of Agatha's age is given
on page 101.

That alone is worth the price of the book.

This was my first Agatha Raisin book, and I loved it. I work at a library, and now I've read nearly all of them. You'll love the village and the recurring characters.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The Case of the Rotten Raisin 9 mars 2006
Par Dennis Phillips - Publié sur
When we last left Agatha she was planning for her marriage to the dapper James Lacey, the man of her dreams. Sometimes dreams have a way of becoming nightmares however and for poor Agatha this nightmare couldn't have been worse. Agatha you see has a terrible tendency to try to deceive both Lacey and the rest of the people of Carsely and although she never gets away with it she just keeps on trying.

In this instance she makes the assumption that the husband she left many years ago but had never divorced had certainly managed to drink himself to death by this time. She assures everyone that she is a widow and actually makes it to the alter before the not so dead Jimmy Raisin shows up and halts the wedding. The very proper Mr. Lacey is of course completely disgusted with Agatha and she is sure that she has lost him forever. On the bright side however, she is soon an actual widow after someone murders Jimmy but the bad news is that she is naturally the chief suspect.

To complicate Agatha's life even more, she has sold her cottage to a rather unpleasant woman who refuses to even discuss selling the place back to Agatha. Having calmed down a bit, Lacey tells Agatha that she can stay with him until she finds a place to stay and since he is a suspect also the two former lovers once again begin to work together on the case of the dead Raisin.

As usual, Agatha is feisty and outspoken and neither her nor Lacey have great sleuthing skills but they get the job done. The rest of the characters are again superb and the author has done a fine job of making the little town of Carsely seem not only real but also like a place where the reader would enjoy living. I even felt sorry for Agatha's friend Bill Wong as he chased puppy like after a lady cop who was working the Raisin case. Beaton's writing style is just simply superb.

That said, I must admit that this is not the best book in the series and the mystery is just a little too easy for the reader to solve. Even so, this is a fun read and no fan of warm fuzzy mysteries should pass this book or this series up.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The more books out, the more I like her 16 septembre 2003
Par kel - Publié sur
Agatha was desperate to get married to James unless the bad feeling might be realized before the ceremony. But...she was almost close to commit a bigamy. The damned alchoholic and abusive husband, Jimmy came up alive in the aisle. He deserved to die because he made Agatha's life miserable...even he found to have blackmailed some at the health farm...But, it shouldn't be done by our brave Agatha...
I was touched several timed during reading this book.
One scene is that Bill and Agatha realized the love and friendship toward each other though the horrible Maddie tried to manipulated Bill (but, one thing I didn't like is that the woman in the police should be womanly. Thus Maddie was out from the investigation. I couldn't like her but the reason she was out should be her cruelty abusing the heart of the person who was nice to her..Well, women are sometimes unbelievablely cruel to men who fall for them).
And the second one is that Agatha confessed her miserable youth and the how she got married. I almost empathized, and was moved.
And the third thing was that James and the persons found the Agatha's picture in Jimmy's wallet. Jimmy might thought to use Agatha when he decided to get married. But the only picture he kept in his wallet is not the other girls but only Agatha's. He's a villian, but the one who knew how young Agatha was so sweet with full of dreams.
Wow...from the first moment I got to read the first one of Agatha Raisin series, I got to like her though she was described to be chubby, mean, tough etc. She has attractions. Originally she's a warm-hearted person. The more books out, the more I got to understand her.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Agatha Raisin is unique 4 novembre 2001
Par Anne Melvin - Publié sur
Format:Poche|Achat vérifié
I have enjoyed the character development in this series. It helps to read the Agatha Raisin books in sequence although it is not necessary to enjoy each story. Agatha and James are complex characters and M.C. Beaton does an excellent job in their delineation. The villagers in this cozy mystery are lovable and reading the book is like living in a small village.
The plot of this book was interesting and the action well-paced. I couldn't put the book down until I finished it. The relationship of James and Agatha has reached a different level in this story. Being middle-aged, independent and set in their ways, their feelings for each other are bound to be mixed. They are likable and you care what happens to them.
