Agatha Raisin’s 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 doesn’t know what to do with it. So it doesn’t take much for the vicar of a nearby village to persuade her to help publicize the church fete, especially when the fair’s organizer, George Selby, happens to be a gorgeous widower. The problem is that 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 just may have some secrets of his own.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Terrific…A must-read.” Entertainment Weekly
“A clever tale…featuring irascible, lovable Agatha Raisin. A Spoonful of Poison will go down just fine.” Richmond Times-Dispatch
“Features an intricate plot that starts off rather innocuously, then expands to reveal a murderer and the lives of others in the village. In the middle of it all is Agatha, who has half her mind on detecting while the other half is again on the lookout for a new romance.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
“In bestseller Beaton’s saucy nineteenth Agatha Raisin mystery…Beaton’s sly humor enhances the cozy-style plotting, while updates on Agatha’s and Toni’s respective romantic travails are delightful as ever. The open-ended resolution points to more madcap mayhem to come.” Publishers Weekly
