Kissing Christmas Goodbye by M.C. Beaton
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was one of the better books in this series. Agatha Raisin is still irritating as usual and obsessed about James Lacy and the perfect Christmas, but she shows compassion for her young detective, Toni, whom she rescues from and abusive home. Toni is a wonderful addition to the Agatha Raisin stories and breathes new life into the series. She is talented and personable...a perfect foil for Agatha. James is his usual wooden self and Agatha's obsession with him is irritation as usual. In some ways, I keep coming back to Agatha just like she keeps coming back to him. She irritates me with her shallowness and grousing, but I find myself looking at the library shelves for the latest in the series.
