    2 StarsThis was by far my least favorite book in the series that I’ve read so far I’ve praised the series for the humor and there was not a laugh in the book I’ve also praised the uirky cast of characters and this book had no likable characters at all Agatha made one bad decision after another and just seemed to feel sorry f

    The sixth book in the Agatha Raisin series is unlike the rest in that the majority of the book takes place outside the CotswoldsThis story picks up right where its predecessor Agatha Raisin and the Murderous Marriage left off Agatha found a note from James Lacey proclaiming his love for her but advising that he

It s difficult to see how many murders one can envision in a small village and so this novel moves Agatha and James overseasTo be honest this fell rather flat with me The story keeps devolving into excerpts from tourist guides and to be honest it s just frustrating to see Agatha continue to desperately pusue someone that is so incredibly emotionally unavailable unkind and has never stated that he s in love with her

I found this lying around my parents house and recognized the author s name I don t think I ve read anything else by MC Beaton but she s one of those writers whose series take up a shelf or two in any bookstore s mystery section This particular book was just very flat None of the characters were very interesting or defined including the protagonist There were several times that traits which could easily have been illustrated in the context of a scene were instead just stated by the narrator The example that jumps to mind is the yacht scene when the reader is first introduced to the group that will become the suspects and victim one woman is described as acting dumb while letting slip that she is actually uite well read First it seems a little lazy to let well read stand in for clever as there are certainly other ways she could seem sharp that would further the plot a bit by which I mean if she s a gold digger why not give her a head for numbers or a sharp business sense Second this is a trait that could easily be illustrated by adding a bit of conversation in which the gold digger mentions a book or two but instead the narrator just states that this is something she does Admittedly the character does weirdly name drop Lysistrata later in the book but it would have been effective to have the illustration occur at the initial observation of this habitThis superficial narration carries over into the motives of the various suspects The main suspects are six people in symmetrical groups of three a middle aged couple and their elderly male friend who is besotted with the wife and another middle aged couple and their besotted elderly male friend Both husbands turn out to be in debt there s a sluttly wife and a jealous wife and then both elderly friends are maybe vaguely jealous The money motives aren t even uncovered by our amateur detective protagonist but merely procured via phone call to her convenient police friend back in England The protagonist does pick up a boring kind of suitor in the course of the narrative who seemed totally bored with her and yet inexplicably turned up all the damn time and I hoped he might turn out to have a nefarious motivation but that didn t come to anything eitherThe protagonist might not have cared very much about the murder since she was lovesick for her former fiance whom she had followed to Cyprus She spent a lot of time obsessing over that relationship and seemed not to care very much about the murder which might explain the superficialness of it all But that wasn t resolved in the course of the book either so I doubt another book in the series would really be free of that problem If I try another of MC Beaton s mysteries it will be from another series and it will be because I stumble across it when I can t find anything better to read

Number 6 in the Agatha Raisin series In this it seems that Agatha s husband turned up in the previous book in time to prevent her marriage to James after reading book 2 I can t imagine why he agreed to marry her and although he was subseuently murdered James has gone to North Cyprus where the couple were due to honeymoon Needy Agatha follows him and traipses round until she finds him The place he was booked into by a long term friend turns out to be a complete dive so he takes a villa and reluctantly invites her to stayBefore this she had been staying at a hotel along with other British tourists and ended up going on a boat trip with two couples each of whom have a wealthy older man tagging along with them One couple is posh the other are stereotypical Essex types We are told that the Essex woman Rose occasionally betrays the fact that she is well read though we don t see this in conversation and in fact that is the style with these books to tell things as info dumps rather than showing them In fact this book has loads of info dumps about the various historical sites the characters end up going round in some cases Agatha s dialogue being her reading things out from guidebooksJames and Agatha end up going along with these people to a disco where Rose is stabbed using a long thin blade of some kind Subseuently the two couples and their men friends plus Agatha and James are repeatedly grilled by the police Agatha starts poking her nose in and antagonising some of the British and the local police chief especially as she has a tendency to blurt out embarrassing uestions James is cold and appears annoyed with her a lot not helped when she runs into Charles a baronet who apparently was introduced in a book a couple before this one where Agatha solved a murder among walkers using his landOn the rebound from one of many fallings out with James she is put up by Charles in the spare bed in his hotel room but they have both been drinking and when he climbs into bed with her she doesn t repulse him She subseuently feels guilty and lies to James about what happened but the police eventually tell him she slept with Charles at which point James leaves for the Turkish mainland in pursuit of the old friend who had rented him the awful accommodation and who he now suspects of drug running This is despite the fact that attempts are being made on her life and should convince her that he cares absolutely nothing for herAfter that she tours various places with Charles trying half heartedly to solve the murder mainly because the police have refused permission for them to leave which James defied until the culprit is apprehendedThere is a lot of mooning about James and a lot of the character being tearful etc about him and obsessing and hoping he will come back despite his cold and rejecting behaviour At one point Charles says he felt like this about a girl once and it was called a teenage crush This seems exactly what it is but in a 50 something woman is grotesue The story is really mostly about this obsession with the odd bit of detecting if you can call it that shoehorned in plus driving around and having dinner in restaurants The most interesting thing was the description of a couple of historical sites visited and a little bit of the atmosphere of North CyprusThe book does show something of the character and emotions and reads less like a synopsis than one I read late in the series number 22 so it scrapes a 2 star rating
