Here Comes the Bride

Welcome to my little Niche within the library. So grab a coffee and let's review some books. There Goes the Bride (Agatha Raisin, #20)There Goes the Bride by M.C. Beaton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


When Agatha's Ex-husband, Charles, invites Agatha to his Wedding with a young Spanish woman named Felicity, Agatha feels jealous. She decides to take a trip to Istambul to get over her jealousy and possibly find romance there with her French friend, Sylvan, only to find that Charles and his fiancee are guests at the same hotel as Agatha. The Wedding is set and Agatha and her friend, Toni attends the enagement party; but when the Bride is murdered, Agatha is named prime suspect. The bride's parents hires Agatha to investigate the murder of their only daughter. There are many twists and turns in the investigation with a surprise ending.

I enjoyed the book. This is the third Agatha Raisin book I've read. Though I really enjoyed Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death , Here Comes the Bride is as funny and witty as The Quiche of Death. Agatha Raisin is a middled aged woman who retires to the Cotswolds. She owns a Private Detective Agency and goes around the Coswolds solving crimes in the style of Agatha Crhistie's character, Mrs Marpole.

Born in Scotland, M.C. Beaton worked as a journalist on Fleet Street. Ms Beaton divides her time between the village of Carsley in the Cotswolds and Paris.
