There is nothing more depressing for a middle-aged lovelorn woman with bald patches on her head than to find herself in an English seaside resort out of season. Agatha Raisin, her hair falling out after a run-in with a hairdresser-cum-murderess from a previous investigation, travels to an old-fashioned hotel in order to repair the damage away from the neighbors in her all-too-cozy Cotswolds village. Unhappy about the slow results and prompted by the elderly residents of the resort, she consults the local witch for help. Agatha purchases a hair tonic (and a love potion, just in case!) and is soon sprouting hairs and capturing the fancy of the village police inspector. But the quiet town is stunned by the murder of the witch. Which of the graying guests is capable of such a brutal crime? The brassy yet endearing Agatha won’t stop until she finds the culprit—and, of course, a little love too.

    " In this installment we find Agatha leaving her beloved Carsley for seaside town Wyckhadden. Here she meets the long time residents of The Garden hotel. Of course it isn't long before there is a murder that Agatha becomes mixed up with. Poor old Agatha's love life never ceases to become more complicated, and more hopeless, and this time she starts interferring with the lives of her fellow residents with dubious results. I couldn't help but feel that the murder took something of a back seat - and suddenly became solved - as if we needed to get that out of the way before we could decently wrap up the story. Good old escapism though as always. "

    " This series of books is a bit of a guilty pleasure for me. A good old fashioned English murder, nicely written and amusing. "

    " I needed something for a short road trip. I had no idea this character, Agatha Raisin, was so funny! Serious tongue in cheek, foot in mouth, dry British wit and humor. "

    " Another great dose of the amateur investigator, who invariably annoys the police and the authorities on the way to being instrumental in solving the crime! She doesn't disappoint as, once again, she unveils the murderer of the witch of Wyckhadden but not before embarking on her usual trials and tribulations, particularly in the love stakes! Will she ever find true love??? "
