Agatha Raisin and the Vicious Vet


Title: Agatha Raisin and the Vicious Vet

Author: MC Beaton

Number of pages: 238

Started: 8 December 2008

Finished: 10 December 2008

Opening words:

Agatha Raisin arrived at Heathrow Airport with a tan outside and a blush of shame inside. She felt an utter fool as she pushed her loads of luggage towards the exit.

Plot summary:

Agatha is convinced that the handsome new village vet has taken a fancy to her and is determined that romance will flourish. However, Dr Bladen is found dead and Agatha suspects foul play. This provides her with a chance to get chummier with her neighbour (and future husband?) James Lacey and use her amateur detective skills to find the killer. Although numerous ladies are devastated by the vets death, some feel that it is good riddance and that Agatha should stay off the case....before someone else gets killed. This is the second in the Agatha Raisin murder mystery series and exceeds all expectations.

What I thought:

This was a readable and untaxing read. It is never going to win any prizes for high literature and is perhaps a bit clich├ęd, but it is a pleasant read and is an easy way to pass a few hours.
