Unlike quite a number of people, Agatha had not given up
on Christmas. To have the perfect Christmas had been a
childhood dream whilst surviving a rough upbringing in a
Birmingham slum. Holly berries glistened, snow fell gently
outside, and inside, all was Dickensian jollity. And in
her dreams, James Lacey kissed her under the mistletoe,
and, like a middle-aged sleeping beauty, she would awake
to passion once more....
Agatha Raisin is bored. Her detective agency in the
Cotswolds is thriving, but sheâ€™ll scream if she has to
deal with another missing cat or dog. Only two things seem
to offer potential excitement: the upcoming Christmas
festivities and her ex, James Lacey. This year she is sure
that if she invites James to a really splendid, old-
fashioned Christmas dinner, their love will rekindle like
a warm Yule log.
When a wealthy widow hires Agatha because sheâ€™s convinced
a member of her family is trying to kill her, Agatha is
intrigued---especially when the widow drops dead after
high tea at the manor house. Who in this rather sterile
house, complete with fake family portraits, could have
hated the old lady enough to poison her?
Agatha sets out to find the murderer, all the while
managing a pretty, teenage trainee who makes her feel old
and planning for a picture-perfect Christmas, with James,
all the trimmings, and perhaps even snow.
