Ein herrliches Lesevergnügen. Wie in den anderen Bücher der Reihe stolpert Agatha von einem Fettnäpfchen ins nächste und schafft es dennoch immer wieder, sich aufzurappeln. Sie läßt sich nicht unterkriegen - was nicht zuletzt an ihren (mehr oder weniger) treuen Freunden und Verbündeten liegt, die sie immer wieder aufrichten und sie nie hängen lassen.

Returning to the humdrum routine of her home, Agatha Raisin finds herself falling for charming new neighbor Paul Chatterton and becomes involved in the investigation of a believed-haunted house and its murdered owner.

Agatha Raisin and the Haunted House continues the tradition in M. C. Beaton's beloved Agatha Raisin mystery series—now a hit show on Acorn TV and public television.

Just back from an extended stay in London, Agatha Raisin finds herself greeted by torrential rains and an old, familiar feeling of boredom. When her handsome new neighbor, Paul Chatterton, shows up on her doorstep, she tries her best to ignore his obvious charms, but his sparkling black eyes and the promise of adventure soon lure her into another investigation.

Paul has heard rumors about Agatha's reputation as the Cotswold village sleuth and wastes no time offering their services to the crotchety owner of a haunted house. Whispers, footsteps, and a cold white mist are plaguing Mrs. Witherspoon, but the police have failed to come up with any leads, supernatural or otherwise. The neighbors think it's all a desperate ploy for attention, but Paul and Agatha are sure something more devious is going on. Someone's playing tricks on Mrs. Witherspoon, and when she turns up dead under suspicious circumstances, Agatha finds herself caught up in another baffling murder mystery.

Ein herrliches Lesevergnügen. Wie in den anderen Bücher der Reihe stolpert Agatha von einem Fettnäpfchen ins nächste und schafft es dennoch immer wieder, sich aufzurappeln. Sie läßt sich nicht unterkriegen - was nicht zuletzt an ihren (mehr oder weniger) treuen Freunden und Verbündeten liegt, die sie immer wieder aufrichten und sie nie hängen lassen.

Agatha Raisin, snug an...

Agatha Raisin, snug and warm in her Carsely cottage, has the same old feeling -- boredom -- until a report of a haunted house sends her and handsome new neighbor Paul Chatterton to investigate. Suddenly, middle-aged Agatha is aglow with romance and excitement. But the glow fades fast. It turns out that Paul is married and a cad. The victim of the haunting is a universally disliked old biddy. And the ghost is most likely someone playing a malicious trick. Then, the old lady is found, murdered, at the foot of her stairs with a broken neck. Agatha thinks solving a murder is more interesting than ghostbusting, and soon has a theory and a rather risky scheme to prove it. As usual, the murders multiply and the suspects are many, but Agatha remains two steps ahead of the police and will end up saving the day once again. Was there ever any doubt? LOL This is the typical cozy romp through the Cotswolds, but I think Agatha is beginning to get her old spirit back a tad with this one. She's also showing a lot more wit than she has to date and set off a giggle or two while I read. M.C. Beaton's books are always good, but never great, and I always get the feeling that they should be fleshed out just a tad more than they are. Still, it was an enjoyable read and I'll give it a 3.5.

A good murder mystery ...

A good murder mystery story and less of the drama of Agatha's love life than in other of the books in the series. It follows the usual pattern of the books. Followers of the series will likely enjoy this one.

Another enjoyable Agat...

Another enjoyable Agatha book. She and her new neighbor Paul get involved in the murder of a woman who claimed her house was haunted. She and Paul stumble around and discover hidden passages, a valuable diary, and a couple of murders more.

An enjoyable read, 3.5...

An enjoyable read, 3.5 stars.
