OLD HABITS DIE HARD
 
Agatha Raisin is lonely. Busy as she is with her detective agency and the meetings of the Carsely Ladies' Society, she still misses her ex-husband, James Lacey. So when he suddenly resurfaces and invites her on holiday at a surprise location, she's ready to go yesterday. With visions of a romantic hideaway in Italy or the Pacific dancing in her head, Agatha sets off with James to...Snoth-on-Sea, in Sussex. While James may have fond memories of boyhood holidays there, the once-grand Palace Hotel is in shambles and freezing cold--as are fellow guests and newlyweds Mr. and Mrs. Jankers, who pick a fight with Agatha one night. Just as she and James prepare to flee to warmer climes, Geraldine Jankers is found dead on the beach...strangled with Agatha's scarf. So much for holiday fantasies: For Agatha, trouble has a way of following her even when romance does not...

 

"Beaton has a winner in the irrepressible, romance-hungry Agatha."

--Chicago Sun-Times

Synopsis:

When a woman in her hotel is murdered, Agatha's notoriously prickly demeanor soon gets her into trouble as she's pegged the prime suspect. If she can't solve the murder in time, she'll be meddling in all her future cases from inside a prison cell.
