Hiss and Hers
Agatha has fallen head over heels in love--again. This time, she has her eye on the local gardener, George Marston, but so do other women in their little Cotswold village. Shamelessly determined, Agatha will do anything to get her man--including footing the bill for a charity ball just for the chance to dance with him. And then George doesn't even show up. Only partly deterred, Agatha goes looking for him, and finds his dead body in a compost heap. Murder is definitely afoot, but this killer chose no ordinary weapon: A poisonous snake delivered the fatal strike. Rising to the occasion, Agatha rallies her little detective agency to find the killer, only to learn that George had quite a complicated love life. But murderously complicated? Well, if she can't have George, at least Agatha can have the satisfaction of confronting the other women and solving the crime.

Lets make Agatha a little bit meaner in the next book, as she is getting older now! I love the Wedding book the best when James's soon-to-be-wife got her self murdered the nite before her vows. I want Agatha to celebrate her 60th birthday party by going to bed with her plastic surgeon and then he ends-up found murdered in her bed the next day, as his wife comes looking for him. Good book! As for this book itself - predictable but never a let-down. Humorous as always and the description of her characters are never a let-down.

Hooray for Agatha, still crazy after all these years! I'm always morally conflicted; do I like her or hate her? Do I want her to get together with Charles? Are her employees nice people or not? Only her friend the vicar's wife seems black-and-white good.

Although I immediately lost track of all of George’s conquests within the first few pages, I still was able to follow along enough to understand the ending. My only caveat was the actions of Bill Wong toward the end. I found it hard to believe he would use Agatha and Charles the way he did.
