Agatha Raisin and the Case of the Curious Curate continues the tradition in M. C. Beaton's beloved Agatha Raisin mystery series―now a hit show on Acorn TV and public television.
Agatha Raisin is feeling miserable―and with good reason. Her ex-husband, James, has abandoned her, and she's been humiliated by an unseemly proposition from John Armitage, her handsome neighbor. So complete is her devastation that Agatha has given up on makeup and taken to wearing the loose cotton dresses and flat, sensible shoes she has always abhorred.
But there is light at the end of this dark and lonely tunnel, and its source is Carsely's beatific new curate, Tristan Delon. With his golden hair, large blue eyes, and perfect mouth, Tristan has attracted the interest of more than a few of his female congregants. And to her surprise, he seems to have taken a special interest in Agatha.
Despite his charms, however, there is something odd about the curate, and after he's found dead in the vicar's study, it's up to Agatha and John to investigate.

Praise for M. C. Beaton
"The Miss Marple–like Raisin is refreshingly sensible and wonderfully eccentric."―Buffalo News
Agatha Raisin and the Day the Floods Came
"This is a true village mystery with a heroine so timely and real, you want to meet her at the pub, join her on holiday, even listen to her whine about weight. Though hardly faultless, Agatha remains the most feisty and fragile mystery heroine on the shelves."―St. Petersburg Times
"Agatha Raisin, a cranky, crude, and raunchy woman somehow (and this reviewer doesn't have a clue) manages to warm her way into the reader's heart and elicit their sympathy. The latest installment in this long-running series is funny, breezy and very enjoyable."―Midwest Book Review
Agatha Raisin and the Love from Hell
"Among the many joys of all Agatha Raisin adventures are Beaton's sweetly formal prose and her vivid descriptions of colorful villagers. This one, however, adds a crackerjack plot and a delightfully comic ending to the mix, making it clearly the best of the lot."―Booklist (starred review)
"M. C. Beaton's eleventh Agatha Raisin book is a reason to celebrate.... [It has all] the vitality and robustness of a new series."―Tulsa WorldFrom the Inside Flap:
She's Disgruntled, Disheartened, Discontented...But Whoever Said Anything About Better Off Dead?
Wretched after being dumped by her husband, bored with pottering about Carsely, and wishing every man would sod off, including her neighbor John Armitage, Agatha Raisin is unmoved by news of the captivating new curate. But when she meets the golden-haired, blue-eyed Tristan Delon, she is swept off her feet...along with nearly every other female in the village. Wrapped in brightly coloured dreams of the curate (never mind that he's a tad odd), Agatha is as ecstatic as a girl when he invites her to dine. But his cold body is found the next day, and Carsely is whisked from time-warp monotony to a hotbed of murder and intrigue-and a clear-headed Agatha Raisin is back on track, this time with John. As the corpses multiply, ever-obstinate Agatha trails clues from Lilac Lane to London, unmindful that someone wicked is arranging that Mrs. Raisin's cats never again hear their mistress' footfall on the path...
