Book Description / Blurb

Putting all her eggs in one basket, Agatha Raisin gives up her successful PR firm, sells her London flat, and samples a taste of early retirement in the quiet village of Carsely. Bored, lonely and used to getting her way, she enters a local baking contest: Surely a blue ribbon for the best quiche will make her the toast of the town. But her recipe for social advancement sours when Judge Cummings-Browne not only snubs her entry—but falls over dead! After her quiche’s secret ingredient turns out to be poison, she must reveal the unsavory truth…

Agatha has never baked a thing in her life! In fact, she bought her entry ready-made from an upper crust London quicherie. Grating on the nerves of several Carsely residents, she is soon receiving sinister notes. Has her cheating and meddling landed her in hot water, or are the threats related to the suspicious death? It may mean the difference between egg on her face and a coroner’s tag on her toe…


[4 stars] "Agatha is a retired PR professional who has taken a house in rural England and wants to settle down with her flowers and a quiet life. She is naturally bored, and eager to get involved with village life, incuding the odd murder. She is her own worst enemy, and sets herself up for many misadventures. Supporting characters are interesting and the stories entertain." - Tuggy Curan - RAM
