When Agatha Raisin left behind her public-relations business in London, she fulfilled her dream of settling in the cozy British Cotswolds, where she began a successful private detective agency. Unfortunately the village she lives in is about to get a little less cozy. Lord Bellington, a wealthy land developer, wants to turn the community garden into a housing estate. When Agatha and her friend, Sir Charles Fraith, attempt to convince Lord Bellington to abandon his plans, he scoffs, "Do you think I give a damn about those pesky villagers?" So when Agatha finds his obituary in the newspaper two weeks later, it's no surprise that some people in town are feeling celebratory.
The villagers are relieved to learn that Bellington's son and heir, Damian, has no interest in continuing his father's development plans. But the police are definitely interested in him - as suspect number one. His father's death, it seems, was no accident. But when Damian hires Agatha to find the real killer, she finds no shortage of suspects.
The good news is that a handsome retired detective named Gerald has recently moved to town. Too bad he was seen kissing another newcomer. But when that woman is also found murdered, Gerald is eager to help Agatha with the case. Agatha, Gerald, and her team of detectives must untangle a web of contempt in order to uncover a killer's identity.
Pushing Up Daisies continues the tradition of this beloved mystery series.

I absolutely love and adore the Agatha Raisin mysteries, but since they have switched the narrator to Alison Larkin, it has been difficult to enjoy. I cannot stand the way she narrates; the men sound ridiculous, especially Charles! She made him sound like a stuffed up, whiney man speaking through his nose. Please switch back to Penelope Keith or find a better narrator!!! She also does nothing to capture the true essence of Agatha. Very disappointing to wait so long for the new book to come out only to be ruined by the person reading it to you. I will most likely get my credits back for any of these read by Alison Larkin and hope for another audio version to come out, so that I may add those to my collection. I always buy the print copy as well, but it is so lovely to enjoy Agatha Raisin while I am cleaning my house or traveling. Such a huge disappointment. (Not a fan of Donada Peters reading Agatha either.)
