Gloria French was a jolly widow with dyed blonde hair, a
raucous laugh, and rosy cheeks. When she first moved from London to the
charming Cotswold hills, she was heartily welcomed. She seemed a do-gooder par
excellence, raising funds for the church and caring for the elderly. But she
had a nasty habit of borrowing things and not giving them back. They’re just small
things—a teapot here, a set of silverware there—so it’s quite the shock when
she is found dead, murdered with a poisoned bottle of elderberry wine.
Afraid the murder will be a blight on the small town, Parish
councilor Jerry Tarrant hires private detective Agatha Raisin to track down the
murderer, but the village is secretive, and the residents resent Agatha’s
investigation. Of course, that doesn’t stop the ever-persistent Agatha from
investigating and sticking her nose where no one wants it—especially as the
suspect list grows. And, as if it isn’t enough that Agatha’s ex has reentered
the picture, the murderer is now targeting Agatha!
With M. C. Beaton’s Something Borrowed, Someone Dead, the bossy, vain, and
absolutely irresistible Agatha Raisin continues to be a fan favorite.
