Agatha Raisin and the Love from Hell - M.C. Beaton

The book is simply delightful. Old-fashioned type of sleuthing. No gory details of murder, no forensic description of a decapitated body - simple snooping around and looking for clues. The Love from Hell is the eleventh book in the Agatha Raisin's series, but it didn't throw me off since I've watched the recent TV adaptation so I was acquainted with the characters to enjoy . I liked it a lot. The style of writing is so intelligent, MC Beaton uses words like truculent, psychosomatic, fulminating, myopic, lurid, stentorian, acidulous and auberge. I love it when a novel makes me reach for the dictionary and discover new words. After reading this book, I have decided to embark on reading the whole of the series. Bon voyage to me! :)
