Agatha Raisin, the crusty, yet perversely self-conscious Londoner who has resettled in the ostensible calm of a Cotswold village stars in her seventh adventure by M.C. Beaton. In this episode, Agatha has agreed to come out of retirement to manage the publicity for the launch of water bottled from a village spring--much to the chagrin of some of her neighbors. Worried that the commodification of at least part of the village's charm might wreak havoc on their peaceful existence, some of the community try to stop it once and for all. Still, killing off a member of the village council and leaving the corpse in the spring itself seems a little extreme, especially as it makes Agatha's paying job a bit more difficult. Believing that a dead body might destroy the chances for a successful campaign to market her product, Agatha begins an investigation into who might have wanted the victim dead.

Agatha Raisin continues to be an engaging and slightly puzzling heroine in The Wellspring of Death. She careens around the Cotswolds asking impertinent questions regarding the personal lives of her neighbors, all the while wondering why so many of them are unpleasant to her. She manages to muddle her own romantic affairs to such an extent that she finds herself in bed with her young and handsome employer--to the dismay of her former fiancée. Yet, in spite of all this, she engages in the occasional humorous assessment of what life among charming façades and lovely vistas is really like (crowded shopping in too small stores) and has a peculiarly British obsession with class and accent. There is much to appreciate here and little that is daunting or dismal. --K.A. Crouch

3.0 von 5 Sternen Femme fatale 20. Februar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I cannot understand why the young male characters in the Agatha Raisin series are so fascinated with this stocky, rude, overeating, heavy-drinking, middle-aged, promiscuous, immature, nosy woman. Her relationship with James is nowhere, and putting them together in book after book to solve crimes is getting a bit strained. James is growing more and more unbelievable. If he's not going to be developed, if his relationship with Agatha isn't going to be developed, get James out of there. This initially very appealing series is getting boring.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Sympathie für die Titelheldin 14. Juni 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Mir gefallen bisher alle Agatha Raisin Stories gut, ich mag einfach die kratzbürstige,sture und oft kindische Art der Heldin.
Auch die Schilderungen von Menschen,mit denen Agatha zu tun hat, lassen einen immer wieder in eine ganz bestimmte Atmosphäre eintauchen. Die Autorin setzt das Thema "Frau, Alter und Patriachat" in jedem ihrer Romane gekonnt ein,man erkennt sich als Frau darin sehr,sehr oft wieder und fühlt Sympathie für die Titelfigur. Dieses Buch ist von der Story her durchschnittlich und etwas vorhersehbar, gibt aber wie immer genügend Momente zum Schmunzeln und zum Lachen!

At the end of Agatha Raisin and the Terrible Tourist, Agatha realizes that James Lacey is probably not going to become her husband in this lifetime. That realization leaves her feeling flat and depressed. When her former assistant, Roy Silver, calls to offer a job doing PR for a local water company, she's mildly interested. That flicker of intrigue is soon fanned into a bonfire when a trip to the water company's source causes Agatha to find the dead body of Mr. Robert Struthers, chairman of the Ancombe Parish Council, a group that was about to hold a key vote on allowing the new water company to use the spring. What better way to sleuth than to have the chance to use PR as a cover?

Agatha is soon attracted to one of the owners of the new company, Guy Freemont, who is "tall and slim, with jet-black hair and very blue eyes, a tanned skin and an athlete's body." Guy takes her out and they end up spending the night. This becomes a routine that keeps Agatha worrying about her appearance while others tell her she's making a fool of herself.

Agatha's suspicions soon focus on the parish council, whose members are a particularly nasty and unfriendly lot. Motives and bad behavior abound. James Lacey chooses to investigate without Agatha and turns up even more motives for murder.

One of the hilarious events of the book builds around Agatha trying to make a local fete into a large PR event, as circumstances and villains conspire against her.

The resolution of the mystery includes some good drama that will delight Agatha's fans.

I found that the reduced emphasis on James Lacey in this book gave this series a new shot of adrenaline and brought back the awkwardness and earnestness of Agatha Raisin into center stage where she reigns so well.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Less James and more Agatha 11. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I do enjoy feisty Agatha and her self-doubts, but I am tired of James, though I do find Roy, who is transparent, amusing. I enjoy mystery stories, but I wonder how much longer I will read Agatha if I have to wade through her "relationship" with James. It's getting to be boring...bring on someone else for Agatha or kill off James or both.
