  • Another great read.

    Loved it! I've read all the Agatha Raisin Books, and always enjoyed the next instalment... funny, light hearted and the perfect cozy read.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Disappointing

    Very disappointed in this book. Vicars wife hardly mentioned and thought by now she could’ve married Sir Charles and new chapter of sparkling sleuthing commenced. Same as same as without the humour of previous characters.

  • Beating about the Bush

    Always enjoy reading about Agatha Raisins exploits and this one didn't dissapoint. All the old regulars and some new ones add to the enjoyment.

  • A Terrific Instalment!

    Agatha Raisin is back in this thirtieth instalment of the popular series by M.C. Beaton. In Beating About the Bush Agatha and her assistant, Toni Gilmour, are hired by Albert Morrison, the head of an engineering company that develops and manufactures batteries for the motor industry, to investigate possible industrial espionage. Returning home with Toni, they spot a brogue in the undergrowth thought to be the severed leg of Morrison’s secretary, Mrs Dinwiddy. When a donkey called Wizz-Wazz is accused of accidentally killing an employee, Agatha and her acolytes take up the cause to prove its innocence and bring the real murderer to justice. Moving constantly between humour and hazard, Beating About the Bush kept me on my toes throughout as I devoured each chapter. Agatha might come across as a bumbling, hard to please fusspot at times, but she is a smart cookie and, with the resources she has at her disposal provided by her other staff, she makes short work of what needs to be done. With a smattering of romance for Agatha which added another ingredient to the mix, the mystery itself was sound and there was always something going on to keep my attention focused. The clues were cleverly placed and even though I was not perplexed by the killer's motives, the culprit was not whom I had suspected, the ending leaving me wanting to read another instalment in the Agatha Raisin series. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Little, Brown Book Group/ Constable via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

  • Beating about the Bush

    Cardboard characters, plot full of holes, as if it only took one day to write. A cynical way to increase sales.
