Agatha Raisin knows the truth when she sees it. Now all she has to do is find it...
Gloria French was a jolly widow with bottle-blonde hair, a raucous laugh, and rosy cheeks. When she first moved from London to the charming Cotswold hills, she was heartily welcomed. She seemed a do-gooder par excellence, raising funds for the church and caring for the elderly. But she had a nasty habit of borrowing things and not giving them back-a teapot here, a set of silverware there. So it's quite the shock when she is found dead, murdered by a poisoned bottle of elderberry wine. Afraid the murder will be a blight on the small town, the Parish councilor hires private detective Agatha Raisin to lead the murder investigation. But the village is secretive...and no one's talking. Of course that doesn't stop the ever-persistent Agatha from sticking her nose where no one wants it-especially as the suspect list grows. And if it isn't enough that Agatha's own ex has reentered the picture, the killer is now targeting Agatha! With Something Borrowed, Someone Dead, M. C. Beaton delivers more of the Agatha Raisin readers can't get enough of.
