Description

Mr and Mrs Wong - Bill Wong's parents. Mother is a native of Gloucestershire, whereas the Father is Hong Kong Chinese. The mother is an awful cook and they are both known to eat at bad restaurants. They are also known for an attraction to brash gaudy decor and chasing off Bill's love interests. Young bride Kylie Stokes is found dead. Everything points to her drowning in a flood. But Agatha saw the bride being less than happy on her "happy day", and aims to solve the riddle herself. Trouble (and murder!) seem to follow Agatha Raisin around. This time when Agatha attends her ex-husband's wedding she doesn't expect the bride to turn up dead, but that is exactly what happens. While Agatha isn't sure how she feels about James Lacey, her ex-husband and on-and-off again crush, she certainly doesn't wish his fiance dead. When Felicity Bross-Tilkington turns up dead right before the "I Do's" the policy point their fingers at Agatha and it's up to Agatha to prove her innocence. I'm also tired of her hip and how aging it is to have to have a hip replacement. Which, let's be honest, I don't know that many people in their 50s who have had to have a hip replacement. Beaton, M. C. (2006). Agatha Raisin and the terrible tourist. London: Robinson. ISBN 1845291840. OCLC 62479127.

James heard a commotion down below the hotel. He opened the window and leaned out. A woman had tripped and fallen getting into a cab. He only got a glimpse but he was suddenly sure the woman was Agatha. A familiar voice rose on the Crimean air, “Snakes and bastards!” Un'indagine nello stile Agatha Raisin, con la (prima) vittima che è la sposa del suo adorato James Lacey, il suo ex-marito. Una storia che parla di immigrazione clandestina internazionale e di varie miserie dell'uomo; della gelosia di Agatha verso la sua ex-neo e poi di nuovo ex assistente, la giovane e bella Toni, e per il suo James, che però dice di aver dimenticato. Per Agatha è dura invecchiare (anche se sembra avere sempre cinquant'anni, ma ormai dovrebbe aver superato la sessantina...), e malgrado sia una donna affermata nel lavoro, prima come PR e poi come investigatrice, non riesce a rassegnarsi a non avere un uomo.Shortly before a pig is to be roasted at Winter Parva's fair, Agatha discovers the supposed pig contains a human torso. Bill and Agatha each start their own investigation into the case. Meanwhile, equipment is mysteriously vanishing from local farms, Toni and Bill are struggling with their potential relationship, and Charles must defend himself from Agatha's accusation that he is trying to seduce Sarah Bloxby. Agatha’s former husband James is engaged to be married to a beautiful, young woman and Agatha has been kindly invited to the wedding. To take her mind off this, Agatha decides she has fallen for Sylvan, a Frenchman she met at James’ engagement party. To distract her still further she decides upon a holiday and flies to Istanbul, where unfortunately she bumps into James and his fiancée not once but twice – convincing him she is stalking them.

Agatha refers to herself and Mary Fortune as examples of James's failed previous romances. ( TV: The Potted Gardener) I feel like she's gone through so much and not gotten her happy ending yet, and you can feel that emotional turmoil in There Goes the Bride. I feel like the build up of the last few books is resolved in this one, and she finds her "place" again in Carsley.
