Love Penelope Keith and series, but not this one

I enjoy the Agatha Raisin franchise and think the choice of Penelope Keith as narrator is inspired, but this one is a disappointment. Is MC Beaton really a male who doesn't like his female characters, or females in general? And the deux ex machina of getting James out of his predicament was quite loathsome.
I hope the next one won't disappoint on either account.

Brain Cancer doesn't disappear by becoming a monk

Having lost a brother to primary brain cancer and a cousin to non cancerous brain tumor the Forest Gump approach to curing malignant illness wasn't entertaining. Chemo is not the first treatment of choice either. Author obviously hasn't seen this cancer close up.
Should have been a more fun book.
