Something Borrowed, Someone Dead - M.C. Beaton This was a fun and quirky whodunit that left me laughing and more bewildered about Agatha Raisin and her detectives than the mystery itself. Something Borrowed, Someone dead opens with the death of Gloria French, the do-gooder who has a knack of borrowing stuff from her neighbors and never giving it back. Death by Elderberry wine that was the verdict and yet suspicious circumstances has left the town of Piddlebury cautious. Hence, the services of Agatha Raisin, private investigator was employed. What happens afterwards is a tale of village blackmail, a couple of murders, a coven of witches all wrapped up in humorous and witty dialogue and events. Add in a veritable number of oddball sleuths and you have an entertaining murder mystery. Agatha Raisin, is not by all means Miss Marple, in fact she seems the total opposite, with her smoking and her loud acerbic personality and her obsession with good looking men. But her wit and sharp intelligence saves the day. Her merry band of detectives and their own dramas aren't too bad themselves. Something Borrowed, Someone Dead is the 24th Agatha Raisin novel by M.C. Beaton.*ARC was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*
