Bossy, impulsive, yet hopelessly romantic, Agatha is dreading the upcoming marriage of her ex-husband, James Lacey. Although she has set her sights on a handsome and beguiling new Frenchman, she can’t quite stop obsessing about James. Her best intentions to move on with her life are put on hold when James’s young bride is shot to death just minutes before saying “I do” and Agatha is named the prime suspect. 

Agatha’s sleuthing sidekick Toni stands ready to help find the real killer, but the case proves trickier than ever. Will her name be cleared, or has the outrageous Agatha finally had her last romp?

    " I am a huge fan of M.C. Beaton and the Agatha Raisin series. I love the plucky personality of Agatha, and always can't wait to see what she is going to get herself into next. In "There Goes the Bride," Agatha gets into quite a few scrapes, and puts her life in danger more than once. Agatha seemed to be off her mark a little bit, being taken in by characters who were not trustworthy, several times over. I nearly thought that she was going to throw in the towel on detective work and that this would be the last Agatha Raisin mystery, if not for the fact that the next one recently came out in hardback. I got the feeling with this book that M.C. Beaton is tiring of the Agatha Raisin character, and perhaps needs to take a break? While I loved this book as much as previous books featuring Agatha Raisin, I just felt that her heart really wasn't in this one. "

    " Agatha Raisin is a really odd, quirky character with lots of flaws and foibles. Maybe that's why I like her. She is definitely a different kind of sleuth from the norm. "

    " These aren't gripping mysteries. They're sort of off-putting for the first few books, but once I got past the silliness of Agatha and realized she's just a scared-of-getting-old, vulnerable, man-crazy broad, I warmed up to her and to her foibles. Now, on the 20th book, she feels like an old friend, one I wish I could meet in person. She seems very real to me, a woman of that "certain age" also. In this installment, Agatha is at first under suspicion for the murder of her ex-husband's fiancee, but she's cleared and plods on to solve the murder, becoming obsessed with any eligible man she comes across, comme d'habitude. I can hardly wait for the next one. "
