#BookReview ‘Agatha Raisin and the Vicious Vet’ by @mc_beaton #cosycrime

Re-bound dates are never a good idea, and Agatha Raisin and the Vicious Vet by MC Beaton starts with retired PR supremo and now amateur sleuth Agatha feeling spurned by sexy neighbour James Lacey. MC BeatonOn the re-bound, she goes out for dinner with the village’s new flirtatious vet, Paul Bladen. It soon turns out that he dislikes cats, although he does seem to have a penchance for middle-aged ladies.
When he drops dead, seemingly of an unfortunate accident, Agatha refuses to accept it is not murder. And so the second novel in the prolific Agatha Raisin series sets off at a pace, as Agatha tries to spend time with James Lacey without drooling.
They ignore police warnings not to ask questions where it is inappropriate, and after breaking into the bank, and snooping around the dead man’s house, they think they find evidence of wrongdoing. Except it is not quite the wrongdoing that they expected.
Another easy-to-read detective romp by MC Beaton, charming to read with your feet up on a rainy Sunday afternoon. Formulaic, yes. But very funny.
