Pretty good for a short mystery novel. Novella really. I find it a little difficult to really enjoy Beaton's Agatha Raisin mystery series b/c Agatha herself just isn't overly likable. Agatha: A middle-aged retired woman who can't leave well enough alone in her small village life, and worse, she's man-crazy to the point of losing all perspective on the subject. But it's easy to overlook all that b/c, by her vary nature, her curiosity means she ends up sticking her nose in some interesting people's business. The results can be problematic, but it's fiction after all. A few bodies strewn around town in a work of fiction is nothing to worry about. Gives Agatha something to do. Beaton's writing style is very good, to boot. In this one, Agatha leaves her home of Carsely (UK) for a short stay in Norfolk, and discovers there's fairies about. The fairies seem to be intent to steal everything not locked down. Meanwhile, there's murder afoot. Will Agatha be able to restrain herself, and mind her own business? Not bloody likely.
