Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death ~~ M.C. Beaton

Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death by M.C. Beaton

After Agatha's years of slaving to promote other people's success, her new life in a picture-book English village is a dream come true. And how better to make friends than by entering the village quiche-making competition? To ensure first prize, Agatha buys her entry at London's renowned Quicherie.

Alas, Agatha's impeccable product is soon exposed as not only store-bought but poisoned. The contest judge, Mr. Cummings-Browne, rumored to be a connoisseur of women as well as food, succumbs after eating it, and with him go Agatha's chances for bucolic bliss--unless she can nab the poisoner.

In a reckless game of village quiche-and-tell, Agatha rushes in where angels might fear to tread, infuriating and entertaining her neighbors, but shrewdly gaining on her prey--all unaware that she's become the prey herself....
