9780736655361: Agatha Raisin and the Murderous Marriage

(5th in "Agatha Raisin series")

Agatha Raisin is tying the knot with James Lacey before he can have second thoughts. After all, her first husband must be long dead of alcohol poisoning. But Jimmy Raisin hears the news in his cardboard residence in London and reaches the village of Carsely just in time to stop Agatha from committing bigamy. Promptly jilted by her groom, Agatha pushes Jimmy in a ditch - where he is later found strangled. Even the Local Ladies' Society believes her - or James - to be the killer. Soon the unhappy couple, thrown together again by their investigation of Jimmy's insalubrious past, are risking life and limb - not to mention love - as they ferret out dark doings that make Carsely the multiple murder capital of the English Cotswolds.

"Beaton has a winner in the irrepressible, romance-hungry Agatha." (Chicago Sun-Times)
