Summary: Elderly detective investigates the murder of her ex-husband’s fiancé.
Private detective Agatha Raisin is a woman of certain age and struggling with it. She’s divorced but is feeling especially vulnerable when she’s invited to her ex-husband’s wedding. After grumblimg most of the time, and playing a prank on the wedding party, she is then under suspicion when the bride is found murdered.
But I couldn’t get why. There’s some Chinese people smuggling, failed romance, a plot to kill Agatha, but really why? A mystery about whose child the bride really is – just a messy plot with nowhere to go and I didn’t care.
