My latest read...

M.C. Beaton's Busy Body.  

Agatha Raison is back and at her best in this charming little murder mystery based in the Coswolds. It has everything I love in a book.  Honestly, I wish I lived there so I could know these characters.  James misses Agatha, several strange murders, Sir Charles Fraith at his finest with an interesting twist of behavior, Mrs. Bloxby, the clever vicar's wife, a slew of nasty little people and the introduction of a new investigator.  I couldn't put it down and am sorry I read it so fast because now it's over and I have to wait for Marion Chesney to write another one.  Fortunately, she's got a Hamish Mac Beth on the way in the fall.  Pick up one of these and you'll wind up reading the entire series!
