I was almost surprised by how much I ended up enjoying the book, though - and the character of Agatha Raisin, who is prickly and straight-to-the-point and really rather unpleasant at times. In real life, I'm not sure I'd like her much, but in the book, she grew on me.
Apart from the prickly protagonist, there wasn't much in the book to set it apart or make it unique - the characters, most of them anyway, were stereotypes, the settings clichéd, the murder mystery not terribly exciting, the writing competent, but not dazzling - and yet somehow it all came together in a way that worked for me. I have a weakness for picturesque English villages, and while the setting was cliché and the descriptions perhaps too long at times, it pulled me in and left me with a smile on my face.
