All that being said I did finish the book, which is a plus, and in the rare areas where the book reminded me of past books I enjoyed it but those areas were far and few between. After finishing the book, I think it may be time to say good-bye to Agatha and her bumbling ways.
Thought the plot and other details, seemed as if this
was written in a hurry. But will still read any other of this series.
When reading this book, however, I felt like I was playing the old Sesame Street game "One of these things is not like the other". Yes, it stars Agatha Raisin and the cover says it was written by M.C. Beaton, but something was just different. And off. I can't totally put my finger on it. One thing that initially threw me off was the fact that you barely hear anything about the title character before he's killed off. In fact, does Agatha even meet him? Then the rest of the book just seemed sort of choppy - lots of things happened that didn't really seem connected.
I'm giving it three stars because it's still better than most of the other similar stuff out there, but it's just not up to par.
