Dishing the Dirt
Dishing the Dirt by M.C. Beaton
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A therapist has moved into the village. Agatha Raisin already despises her because she has been seen in the company of her ex-husband, James, and she has been spreading the details of Agatha’s humble origins. Not for long though because, as usual, people start dying mysteriously in the village and it is up to Agatha, her friend Charles and her team of detectives to find out why.

The Agatha Raisin books are totally formulaic and this one follows the same succssful layout as the previous 25. I read them rather like a comfort blanket so that after I have done a few for review, I can kick start my brain again by reading something totally predictable and with nothing to think about. I finished this one the other night, and by morning I couldn’t really remember what had happened. That isn’t the point though, the point is if you need something that you know will make you smile and not make you have to think at all, Agatha’s your girl!
