Agatha Raisin and the Day the Floods Camecontinues the tradition in M. C. Beaton's beloved Agatha Raisin mystery series--now a hit show on Acorn TV and public television. Marital bliss was short-lived for Agatha Raisin. Her marriage to James Lacey was a disaster from the beginning, and in the end, he left her-not for another woman, but for God. After having been miraculously cured of a brain tumor, James has decided to join a monastery in France. Agatha can usually depend on her old friend, Sir Charles Fraith, to be there when times are tough, but even Charles has abandoned her, dashing off to Paris to marry a young French tart. Miserable and alone, Agatha hops on a plane and heads for a remote island in the South Pacific. To Agatha's surprise, she makes friends with her fellow travelers easily, and keeps herself out of mischief, despite the odd feeling she gets from one particularly attractive honeymooning couple. But when she later finds that the pretty bride has drowned under suspicious circumstances, Agatha wishes she had found a way to intervene. Returning home to the Cotswolds, Agatha is grimly determined to move on with her life and to forget about James and Charles. They have, after all, forgotten about her. And what better way than to throw herself into another murder investigation? A woman, dressed in a wedding gown and still clutching her bouquet, has just been found floating in a river. The police say it's suicide, but Agatha suspects the girl's flashy young fiancé. With the help of her handsome, and single, new neighbor, Agatha sets off to prove the police wrong.… (mais)

Alone and unhappy after her divorce from James, Agatha goes on vacation to escape her life. She returns home to find she's let her grooming slip and decides on a make over of sorts. While at the salon she crosses paths with a girl who will become a murder victim and Agatha just can't not investigate a murder. Her new neighbor, John, a mystery writer, is intrigued also and tags along on the investigation. Will Agatha solve the murder? Of course she will! Will she hold on to her newly found self worth and refuse to fall for John?

So much fun! These are always so much fun. ( )

I will admit to not being a huge fan of the Agatha Raisin character. She has annoyed me in the past. However, I got this book in my library's Blind Date with a Book" program and took that as a sign to try her again. I'm still not a huge fan, but I can say her character did not bother me as much in this episode as she has in the past. The storyline was okay. The ending was sort of a let down because it was predictable. I thought M.C. Beaton was going to take the plot elsewhere, but she ended up bringing it right back to the old stand-by. Oh well, I think I'll stick to Hamish MacBeth." ( )

Leichen und Morde, wo sie geht und steht. "Ein Fluch und eine Gabe"...wie ein anderer Detektiv einmal sagte...Genauso scheint es auch bei Agatha zu sein. Wann immer das Leben zu trist und sie zu gelangweilt wird, muss jemand sein Leben lassen - so scheint es fast. Ein weiteres Vergnügen der englischen Dame bei ihren "Ermittlungen" über die Schulter zu schauen...und sich köstlich zu amüsieren. ( )

Agatha Raisin and the Day the Floods Came by MC Beaton - OK

The usual Agatha Raisin: disappointed in love, trying to escape, gets embroiled in a murder.

A nice cosy mystery to while away a few hours when you don't want to think too hard. Enjoyable enough (Although I still hate the way she feels she can't function without a man even though it's patently obvious that she can)

It was one of those grey days where misty rain blurs the windscreen and the bare branches of the winter trees mournfully drip water into puddles on the road as if weeping for summer past.
