When therapist Jill Davent moved to Carsely, Agatha Raisin was not a fan. Not only was she romancing Agatha's ex-husband, but she'd hired a private detective to dig up details of Agatha's not-too-glamorous origins. So when Jill is later found strangled to death in her office, Agatha becomes the prime suspect.

Dishing the Dirt --- by --- M. C. Beaton.

This is England and it’s very much today. But even though there are sat-naves there is still sherry and still, it seems neither the bad guys nor the cops, er--- detectives, use guns. It’s just as well because then it wouldn’t be genteel, rural Cotswolds England. As usual, Agatha Raisin is called to solve a crimethat grows and grows and grows until bodies just pile up in the town morgue. With skill, guile, intuition and a modicum of luck, once again Agatha solves the crime.
She is always a delight to read. Sort of like murder-mystery cocoa.

OMG!!! I have now read ALL of Agatha Raisin books, and imho, for what it is worth, I think this is the best book of the entire series. More twists and turns than usual, and although, once in a blue moon, I might get the culprit right, most of the time, I'm just as surprised as everyone else, I REALLY hadn't a clue who the murderer was. This book was so good, I spent two all nighters reading it, and now I'm suffering from two nights of not sleeping, but, it was just so good, I couldn't stop. I read it every time I could. Miss Beaton outdid herself in this book. I love all of Miss Beaton's Agatha and Hamish books and I've read all of them. Some people think she's run out of ideas, and perhaps getting a bit stale, but, I beg to differ with "Dishing the Dirt". Like I said, and you can take it however you wish, but I do think this is her best Agatha book out of the whole series. Now, I'm waiting anxiously for the next installation of Agatha and Hamish.
