THIS TIME, SHES GOT HERSELF IN A JAM

Agatha Raisins detective agency has become so successful that now all she wants is some R&R. But as soon as she cuts back her hours, Agatha remembers that when she has too much quality time, she doesnt know what to do with it. So it doesnt take much for the vicar of a nearby village to persuade her to help publicize the church fête—especially when the fairs organizer, George Selby, happens to be a gorgeous widower. Problem is: Several of the offerings in the jam-tasting booth turn out to be poisoned…and the festive family event soon becomes a murder scene. Now Agatha must uncover the truth behind the jam tampering and expose the nasty secrets lurking in the seemingly innocent village—all while falling for handsome George, who may just have some secrets of his own.

Synopsis:

The latest installment in the "New York Times"-bestselling series features a delicious new case for Agatha Raisin from the reigning queen of the cozies ("Booklist").

Synopsis:

After a festive church event becomes the scene of two murders, Agatha is charged with getting to the bottom of the crime.
