Publisher's Summary

Gloria French was a jolly widow with dyed blonde hair, a raucous laugh, and rosy cheeks. When she first moved from London to the charming Cotswold hills, she was heartily welcomed. She seemed a do-gooder par-excellence, raising funds for the church and caring for the elderly. But she had a nasty habit of borrowing things and not giving them back. They're just small things - a teapot here, a set of silverware there - so it's quite the shock when she is found dead, murdered with a poisoned bottle of elderberry wine.
Afraid the murder will be a blight on the small town, Parish councilor, Jerry Tarrant, hires private detective, Agatha Raisin, to track down the murderer, but the village is secretive, and the residents resent Agatha's investigation. Of course, that doesn't stop the ever-persistent Agatha from investigating and sticking her nose where no one wants it - especially as the suspect list grows. And, as if it isn't enough that Agatha's ex has reentered the picture and the murderer is now targeting Agatha!
With M. C. Beaton's Something Borrowed, Someone Dead, the bossy, vain, and absolutely irresistible Agatha Raisin continues to be a fan favorite.

Possibly the BEST Agatha Raisin yet!

The story has many curious twists and turns. Will Agatha even survive this case? Will Roy and James survive? Are there really practicing witches in the countryside? Will Wilkes finally tear his hair out over Agatha's continuing involvement in his cases? Will Carsely finally reject Agatha or fete her because of all the murder and mayhem that always surround her?
In this book, many of the characters finally "grow up". As usual, Penelope Keith's narration is top notch. I spent the entire day enjoying this wonderful audiobook from beginning to end!

Favorite Story (so far)

The story was very good, complicated enough in the main story to keep me interested. With little stories woven through the overall story as it progresses. I appreciated that the police warnings weren't overdone this time (stay out of our investigation or you'll be charged, etc.), it gets old when there are too many. The story did not become bogged down with excessive emotional drama, just enough to make me curious about what each character will do next. I look forward to the crazy friendship/sporadic lover relationship of Charles and Agatha. I think if both of them could grow up just a touch more, they'd make a delightful and surprising husband and wife team. Especially because they're both unpredictable in their own unique way. But for some reason Agatha is unchanging in this area, which is somewhat confusing since she has grown in other relationships. There were a few unexpected characters and surprising events that I really liked. And that is why this is my favorite Agatha Raisin story so far (I've read half the books in this series).
