Putting all her eggs in one basket, Agatha Raisin gives up her successful PR firm, sells her London flat, and samples a taste of early retirement in the quiet village of Carsely. Bored, lonely, and used to getting her way, she enters a local baking contest. Despite the fact that Agatha has never baked a thing in her life, she is sure the pie she has secretly bought from an upper-crust London quicherie will make her the toast of the town. But her recipe for social advancement sours when the judge not only snubs her entry―but falls over dead!
Agatha Raisin and the Vicious Vet
Agatha Raisin hasn't quite adjusted to the slow pace of village life, or to the failure of her overtures to her handsome neighbor, James Lacey. Since the new vet in town is young and good looking, Agatha's perfectly healthy tabby endures a nasty physical exam in the name of romance. Unfortunately, his sacrifice is all for naught when the vet is soon found dead. The police call the death a freak accident, but Agatha convinces James that playing amateur detective might be fun. Unfortunately, just as curiosity killed the cat, Agatha's inept snooping is soon a motivation for murder.

Really enjoying this series!
Well, as I've read all of the Daisy Dalrymple and Her Royal Spyness series I was hoping to come across another cozy, English mystery series that was well-written, had enjoyable characters, and was an already well-established series. Agatha has fit the bill and I have to say of our three heroines Agatha is my favorite. She's a tough, in-your-face woman with hysterical lapses in judgement, yet capable of profound insight. She portrays herself as the HBIC, been there, done that, but at times seems incredibly naive, especially where men are concerned.
I've blown through three books and I can't wait to continue. On to the next!
