Beaton’s sly humor enhances the cozy-style plotting, while updates on Agatha's and Toni's respective romantic travails are delightful as ever. The open-ended resolution points to more madcap mayhem to come.
Few things in life are more satisfying than to discover a brand-new Agatha Raisin mystery.

—St. Petersburg Times
Beaton has a winner in the irrepressible, romance-hungry Agatha.
