(From the publisher):
The feisty Agatha Raisin, until recently a London public-relations executive, believes that the attractive new village vet has taken a shine to her. Yet before romance can bloom, Dr. Paul Bladen accidentally kills himself under suspicious circumstances while attending to Lord Pendlebury's horse.
Oh well, for Agatha there's still her distinguished neighbor, James Lacey, a retired military man who's been playing hard to get. Perhaps they might get chummier as they share a common interest, like a murder investigation. Though numerous village ladies are devastated by Dr. Bladen's death, other people - including his divorced wife - feel it's good riddance.
All agree, however, that Agatha would be well advised to let sleeping dogs lie - before someone else meets death by accident...
