Crankier than ever, Agatha Raisin wants to forget that her husband left her to enter a monastery—a turn of affairs more humiliating than when she caught him with a mistress. She feels abandoned, fat, frumpy, and absolutely furious. What are her options? She takes an island vacation and joins a Pilates class. But what finally lifts her spirits is finding a corpse. The dead girl was a member of Agatha’s exercise class, afloat in a rain-swollen river, dressed in a bridal gown, and clutching a wedding bouquet. Agatha’s policeman friend Bill Wong suggests she leave this macabre murder to the Worcester CID. Pah! What do they know? Once she enlists the aid of the bachelor mystery writer next door, puts on a disguise, and interviews some likely suspects, Agatha will be her brash, redoubtable self again—unless she becomes the killer’s next victim first …

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A true village mystery with a heroine so timely and real, you’ll want to meet her at the pub.” St. Petersburg Times
“Funny, breezy, and very enjoyable.” Midwest Book Review
“The Agatha Raisin stories are always well plotted, but the real attraction is the quirky characters of Agatha, Sir Charles, and James. Fans will be thrilled to catch up with the titanic trio.” RT Book Reviews
“The real story in M. C. Beaton’s Agatha Raisin and the Day the Floods Came takes place upon Agatha’s return to her Cotswold home, when she learns of a young woman’s apparent suicide and decides to investigate with the aid of her new neighbor, the dashing, cultured, and vaguely lascivious writer John Armitage, and her own surprising flair for deceit and disguise.” Publishers Weekly
“Beaton’s Agatha Raisin series just about defines the British cozy: she gives us an individualistic sleuth working out of a thatched cottage in an achingly picturesque Cotswold village.” Booklist, praise for the series
“Penelope Keith as Agatha shines.” AudioFile, praise for the narrator
