James Lacey wandered over to the window of his hotel room. His fiancée, Felicity, was asleep. He was feeling some twinges of unease. What he loved about Felicity was the way she looked at him with her large eyes, appearing to drink in every word. But on the plane journey, he wondered if she were listening to him. "The order to charge was given," said James, "and a spaceship landed in the valley and some little green men got out." "Fascinating," breathed Felicity. "You weren't listening!" "Just tired, darling. What were you saying?" James heard a commotion down below the hotel. He opened the window and leaned out. A woman had tripped and fallen getting into a cab. He only got a glimpse but he was suddenly sure the woman was Agatha. A familiar voice rose on the Crimean air, "Snakes and bastards!" Bossy, impulsive, yet hopelessly romantic, Agatha is dreading the upcoming marriage of her ex-husband, James Lacey. Although she has set her sights on a handsome and beguiling new Frenchman, she can't quite stop obsessing about James. Her best intentions to move on with her life are put on hold when James's young bride is shot to death just minutes before saying "I do," and Agatha is named the prime suspect. Agatha's sleuthing sidekick Toni stands ready to help find the real killer, but the case proves trickier than ever. Will her name be cleared, or has the outrageous Agatha finally had her last romp?

There Goes the Bride --- by MC Beaton.
If you care to look at my list of books read you’ll find that I’ve become rather fond of this author. Her novels are indeed murder mysteries but while the do challenge you to solve the crime, they are none the less written a gentle, even amusing style. The determined reader will fund her all-too-short stories elegantly crafted and quite satisfying. To be recommended, even soothing.

All Agatha Raisin books are charming in a bitter way.

I Like this series although it is very simply written, I enjoy her storylines. She packs a lot into a very small book!

I found it a bit disjointed and not up to
her usual standard.

I had heard alot about this series so decided to give it a try. Unfortunately, it's not for me. I found the plot simplistic, the heroine thoroughly unlikable & the murderer obvious from about the second chapter.

Another enjoyable account of Agatha's bumbling yet successful detecting. Several laugh out loud moments as well as thoughtful insights. A good read as usual.
