Recently married to James Lacey, the witty and fractious Agatha Raisin quickly finds that marriage, and love, are not all they are cracked up to be. Rather than basking in marital bliss, the newlyweds are living in separate cottages and accusing each other of infidelity. After a particularly raucous fight in the local pub, James suddenly vanishes - a bloodstain the only clue to his fate - and Agatha is the prime suspect. Determined to clear her name and find her husband, Agatha begins her investigation. But her sleuthing is thwarted when James's suspected mistress, Melissa, is found murdered. Joined by her old friend Sir Charles, Agatha digs into Melissa's past and uncovers two ex-husbands, an angry sister, and dubious relations with bikers. Are Melissa's death and James's disappearance connected? Will Agatha reunite with her husband or will she find herself alone once again?… (mais)

I found it very hard to get into & enjoy this book. The marriage with James was sour & his disappearance early one made way for the much nicer Sir Charles. I cared not at all for any of the other characters who seems only very minimally drawn. I'll continue to read the series though post-James could prove even more interesting. ( )

Agatha finally gets her Man
Review of the Blackstone Audio Inc. audiobook edition (January 2013) of the original St. Martin's Press Minotaur hardcover (December 2001)

The Love from Hell finds Agatha Raisin finally married to her village crush James Lacey but they soon begin to annoy each other and James takes up with an incomer named Melissa. Melissa is found murdered and James disappears. Agatha and her regular allies esp. Sir Charles Fraith, have to solve the crime and find out where James has gone.

I'm continuing to enjoy the fun of this cozy series which is somewhat different from the TV-series which I saw first. Sir Charles is much more of a recurring character and occasional love interest than he is in the screen adaptation and his cheap and chintzy manners are played up quite a bit. The narration by regular reader Penelope Keith is always excellent in all voices.

Most (28 of 32) of the Agatha Raisin audiobooks are free on Audible Plus. A posthumous Book 32 Down the Hatch is yet to be released, and is expected to be published in October 2021.

Trivia and Link
The Love from Hell was adapted as Episodes 5 & 6 of Series 3 for the currently ongoing Agatha Raisin TV series (2016-). A trailer can be seen on Vimeo here. ( )

You know that old saying, be careful what you wish for because you might get it? Well that's what happens when Agatha marries James. He's a horrible husband who is controlling, rude, inconsiderate and even unfaithful. I saw most of that coming. What I didn't see was him being an absolute coward.

I love these books because they never fail to entertain and this one was more entertaining than most. A little far fetched but a lot of fun and that's what my tbr list is all about. ( )

This is a nice cozy mystery. Agatha, back from her honeymoon, quickly realizes that this marriage is not under a good star. She feels that her husband has a relationship with a local woman. When he disappears injured and the alleged lover is found dead, Agathe and Charles go in search of what really happened. Soon they have to realize that they are dealing with psychopaths and James, Agatha's husband has other life plans. ( )

Quick and easy read. Rather silly for dealing with cancer and psychopathy. ( )
