Does anyone else find James Lacey a really unattractive person? He seems pretty childish whenever he becomes 'alarmed' by Agatha, and he likes her most when she is 'quiet and crushed' - ie only when her real personality is battered into submission!
Tressa He was charming in about the first three books, but ultimately becomes an ass fast. What a tool. And Sir Charles is right: Agatha is too good for him! See 1 question about Agatha Raisin and the Walkers of Dembley…. Lists with This Book. Community Reviews. Showing Average rating 3.

View 1 comment. Agatha Raisin is, as always, an absolute delight to read! I immensely enjoyed this, and can't wait to read the next one! She had fantasized about there being only one bedroom. James would sleep on a cot-bed on the floor.
But the best scene in the book for me was view spoiler [when Agatha had the melt down in the pub while James was eating with the sexy librarian. Then an angry James gets a phone call, telling him what a great actor Agatha is, and he thinks he has misjudged her. I was LOL all over the place, glad I was reading someplace private people would have thought I lost my mind. View 2 comments. Another good entry in the Agatha Raisin series but only a 3.
Well, Agatha is Agatha and she is great, but we now move away from our friendly and beloved village of Carsley to a neighboring area of Dembley and completely new characters who we will most likely not meet again in this series - it is also the trouble with the TV series in that they cannot keep everything bad happening in Carsley and so they move about England and most of the core characters become minimalized ot Another good entry in the Agatha Raisin series but only a 3.
Well, Agatha is Agatha and she is great, but we now move away from our friendly and beloved village of Carsley to a neighboring area of Dembley and completely new characters who we will most likely not meet again in this series - it is also the trouble with the TV series in that they cannot keep everything bad happening in Carsley and so they move about England and most of the core characters become minimalized other than Agatha and James. But Agatha is a corker as she worries about little lines appearing on her upper lip, how big her feet look in white sneakers, her continuing desire for James and the fact that she and James actually have to move to Dembley to go undercover posing as husband and wife but unfortunately for Agatha they move to a 3-bedroom apartment and James sleeps in a different room with his door barricaded by a chair propped under the door knob.
Agatha feels she has put on a few pounds during her 6-months in London and decides to join a Rambling Society that in infested with militant trekkers, class-conscious walkers, lesbians and an IRA sympathizer. Just another good old fashioned murder mystery for Agatha. The adventure is always fun when traveling with Agatha but I hope the next book gets back to the friendly confines of Carsley.

When a rambler hiker from a nearby town is found dead in a field, Agatha is called upon to dig up all the info she can. Of course, investigations are far more exciting with James Lacey in tow. And how much more exciting still to go undercover with the chap - as a married couple! Though the mystery has its fair share of plausible, unsettling suspects, the highlight of this tale is the in Oh, my.
Though the mystery has its fair share of plausible, unsettling suspects, the highlight of this tale is the interaction between Agatha and James.
Beaton finally throws them together in an inescapable way, forcing the two to sort out their feelings. Since so much of the book is devoted to their relationship, I can't help but note that I don't view them as the best romantic match.
James is too adept at seeming indifferent, whilst Agatha is so caught up in her paranoid misconceptions that she can't see her own worth. I find myself wishing she'd forget about a man liking her and instead focus on liking herself. It's irking me more as I read further installments.
The ending serves up lots of game-changing moments for the series - tons and tons when you consider how short a book it is. I'm certainly going to keep reading, hopefully wishing that Agatha soon learns some lessons about men - and herself - before she's the one committing murder! What makes Agatha Raisin special? She's spunky. She's stubborn. She knows how to get results.
As a woman who had to work her way to success, she also has a major chip on her shoulder when she comes face to face with the wealthy or "old rich. She is a strong woman. She's also human and craves meaningful relationships. She makes a way to create these relationships with the residents of Carsely.
At least that's what I thought of her before I picked up this book in the series. Agatha has just returned from her 6 month long stint in London, back at her old PR job.
She's paid her dues, and returns to her home in the Cotswold village of Carsely. Her newest case falls into her lap. A rambler, Jessica Tartinck, of Dembley has been murdered. Another rambler from the group, Deborah, has asked for Agatha's help in clearing the name of Charles Fraith through her aunt, Mrs.
Agatha jumps into the case, with James Lacy, neighbor and favorite fantasy, posing as a married couple. She seems to have forgotten everything she learned about herself from the Potted Gardner and Vicious Vet. She's back to making a fool of herself over James Lacy.
James, who is simply looking for a woman that needs him to take care of her, rather than equal partner in life. Lacey, the man who has been rude to Agatha, has ignored her completely, and has treated her with condescension the entire time we've known him. What is going here?! I find the whole situation rather difficult to believe. The real world doesn't really work that way. Agatha's whole character is out of sync with her actions, not to mention the actions of James Lacey.
I understand exploring the side of Agatha that requires intimacy. But the there was very little real buildup to that here. They had drunken sex ONCE and he proposes? Not really feeling it. Furthermore, the mystery plot was nowhere near as satisfying as the plots of the previous books.
Cancel anytime. A newcomer to the village, Mary Fortune, is discovered murdered. Agatha seizes the moment and immediately starts yanking up village secrets by their roots and digging the dirt on the victim. But the problem is, Agatha has an awkward secret of her own. In the delightful Cotswold village of Carsely, the air is heady with romance.
Agatha Raisin and the Walkers of Dembley
Having spent years toiling away in London, Agatha has relocated to the Cotswolds. However, her hopes of a quiet life are dashed when murders start occurring in her village. Drawn into their mysteries, Agatha attempts to solve the crimes In the first episode, a walker is found dead on a local baronet's land soon after he declares war on her rambling group for trespassing on his land. Eager to solve the crime, Agatha convinces James that they should pose as a married couple and go undercover in the victim's rambling group.
The Walkers of Dembley
Agatha Raisin Ashley Jensen , former Public Relations Executive turned retiree at a very young age, has taken to her new home in the village of Carsley in the Cotswolds. Cleared of all charges and suspicion, Agatha even managed to come out on top—a skill at which she seems to excel. As a bit of background, Raisin is the long-running character in a series of novels by M. The books, which would best be classified as amateur sleuth or cozy mysteries, contain quite an element of comedy and a large supporting cast of quirky Cotswold characters. All is forgiven, and Agatha walks through town with a purpose, saying hello to all the villagers she passes. They seem happy to see her and return her greeting.
