Agatha Raisin: There Goes the Bride Hardback
by M. C. Beaton
Part of the Agatha Raisin series
Agatha's former husband James is engaged to be married to a beautiful, young woman and Agatha has been kindly invited to the wedding.
To take her mind off this, Agatha decides she has fallen for Sylvan, a Frenchman she met at James' engagement party.
To distract her still further she decides upon a holiday and flies to Istanbul, where unfortunately she bumps into James and his fiancee not once but twice - convincing him she is stalking them.
So when the bride is murdered on her wedding day, naturally Agatha is Suspect Number One - but then matters are turned on their head when the dead bride's mother engages Agatha to take on the case of her murdered daughter! And very soon Agatha's own life is in danger while she tries to solve the mystery of the corpse bride while fighting off (halfheartedly) the advances of a very attractive and determined Frenchman!

Review by riverwillow
This is a gloriously addictive series of books. The central character, Agatha Raisin, is engaging as she spends her life trying to come with her own insecurities. There are some hilarious moments as she bumbles her way through another murder investigation, which puts her own life at risk several times. As always there are some poignantly funny moments around her love life, but at the end of the book there is a hint that Agatha's love life may be changing, and that can only be good.
