No-nonsense P.R. whizz Agatha Raisin leaves the London rat race to live in the Cotswolds village of Carsely, where local bobby Bill Wong suggests she involves herself in local activities. So she enters the quiche-baking contest at the village fete - and cheats by buying her offering at a London bakery, a secret she shares with Gemma, the cleaning lady she has filched from snooty Sheila from next door. Nonetheless the judge, philandering Andy Cummings-Browne, awards the prize to Ella Cartwright, one of several married women with whom he is cheating on his wife Jo.

Agatha's friend Roy convinces her that, if she wants to make herself truly popular, she must find out who used her as a scapegoat in order to kill Andy and so, using her P.R. methods, she turns detective.

I waited with baited breath for this screen adaptation. What a disappointment, Agatha Raisin basics weren't even adhered too,(slight Brummie accent, dark brown hair, Carsley ladies referring to each other by their married names and what about the vicar and his wife?) I found the books laugh out loud funny but this didn't come across on screen and relied heavily on 'hammish' acting. It was all a bit too slapstick for my taste, it could have been so good with ongoing regular episodes but not sure the casting is good enough. Won't be setting the record button on any future adaptations. I can't see it ever being anywhere as good as Hamish Macbeth (MC Beaton's other book to series)
