In the 3rd book in this series, Agatha returns from a lengthy vacation to find a newcomer in her little village of Carsely. Mary Fortune is pretty, a great cook and an excellent gardener. She also seems to have captured the interest of Agatha’s neighbor (and unrequited crush), James Lacey. An upcoming gardening competition brings out Agatha’s competitive nature and her habit of going about things in all the wrong ways.
Agatha continues to be her gruff, yet naively charming self who tries way too hard to fit in with the villagers without realizing that they already consider her a part of the village. Carsely is populated with enough eccentrics to make Agatha seem normal.
This is without a doubt, a light cozy mystery series. As read by Donada Peters, they make perfect driving around town audiobooks. I’m looking forward to finding out what kind of mess Agatha gets herself into in the next book.
