Publisher's Summary

Agatha Raisin, retired PR supremo, has been spurned at the alter by the man of her dreams - her attractive neighbor James Lacey. So temporarily deserting the sleepy Cotswold village of Carsely, she pursues her fleeing fiancé to north Cyprus where, instead of enjoying a romantic honeymoon, they witness the killing of an obnoxious tourist in a disco. Can the duo forget their differences and resume their strangely successful sleuthing partnership?

Mixed Feelings

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I love seeing Agatha develop over the course of the series, but this installment made me sad! James is so unworthy of her affection, and I felt so sorry for poor Agatha. Sure, she makes a lot of ill-advised decisions and digs herself into holes, but he is so cruel and cold. I hope she moves on to better men in the future.

Also, I missed the Carsley characters. 99% of the story takes place abroad, and I missed Bill Wong and Mrs. Bloxby.

Addictive and Irritating

What made the experience of listening to Agatha Raisin and the Terrible Tourist the most enjoyable?

Agatha finally stood up to James! Yay, I really find it hard to pity the guy.


What other book might you compare Agatha Raisin and the Terrible Tourist to and why?

Any other in the series, it truly is one of a kind.


Which scene was your favorite?

The final scene, not because it was finished but because James was the one waiting like a sad puppy for once.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

A lot of rage. These characters were somewhat likeable together, but when they fight wish I could smack some sense into them sometimes.


Any additional comments?

A peak in the series. Finally there is some, a nanometer really, of personal growth in our main character. Hopefully the next book doesn't have her backsliding.
