An unexpected hike to the Other Side ...After time away, Agatha Raisin returns to her beloved Cotswold village of Carsely - and to her handsome neighbour, James Lacey. True, James seems less than thrilled to see her, but Agatha is soon distracted by a sensational murder. The victim, found in a field, is young hiker Jessica Tartinck, who spent her life enraging landowners by insisting on her right to roam. Hope springs eternal in Agatha's breast as she lures the reluctant James into her investigation. There are so many leads to follow, for Jessica's fellow walkers - not to mention the landowners - all seem able to commit murder.
Very easy to read
I've read lots of Agatha Raisin books now and I think Agatha grows on you, rather than finding her annoying I found her quite amusing, she gets herself into such situations because of her sometimes ridiculous views on things that it is laughable.
It is not a work of great heavy literature, but a good bit of light relief, rather like a trashy film, that gets terrible reviews, but everyone rather likes because it is just entertainment.
The books are amusing and flow well. If you want a bit of light relief that you can read in a couple of days, this is the book for you.
