5.0 von 5 Sternen The best in this series yet
The Cotswold Village council is acrimoniously split as to allowing a company to bottle water from the town's historically famous spring. Acrimonious turns out to be not a sharp enough description as the corpse of the uncommitted council president is found inside the spring.

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...

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.

The Cotswold Village council is acrimoniously split as to allowing a company to bottle water from the town's historically famous spring. Acrimonious turns out to be not a sharp enough description as the corpse of the uncommitted council president is found inside the spring. Agatha Raisin, who has been hired by the Anacombe Water Company to provide public relations for the firm, decides to investigate. Her former fiancé, James Lacey also begins to inquire as to what happened to the president.
James and Agatha are irate with one another and refuse to help each other on their independent investigations. Although James has hurt her deeply, Agatha misses James, but she is seeing a much younger man. At the same time, her investigation seems to be going nowhere as everyone has an alibi. When a second murder occurs, Agatha realizes that she needs to uncover the identity of a killer, who will do anything to win the argument over the spring.
In the seventh Agatha raisin mystery, M.C. Beaton continues to keep her characters and their village fresh, especially as they struggle with the influx of major outside capitalism on a historical item. The story line is intriguing as the investigation by amateur sleuth extraodinaire Agatha is adroitly developed. This collection continues to be one of the best English cozy series on the market.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Tiresome, 20. Februar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Once again, Agatha Raisin has shown herself to be rude, crude and promiscuous. She has a lot to offer if she could just grow up. I enjoyed the previous books but when this one just repeated her insecurities and immaturity, I wondered when she would grow up. Hopefully, the next book will show some growth in her personality. But keep the feistiness.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Less James and more Agatha, 11. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
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.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Sympathie für die Titelheldin, 14. Juni 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Agatha Raisin and the Wellspring of Death (Kindle Edition)
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!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Agatha Drinks from the Fountain of Youth, Adds a Toy Boy, and Explores New Facial Treatments, 19. Juli 2007

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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen the best yet, 1. August 1998
Von Ein Kunde
There's not much I can add to the previous review of Agatha Raisin and the Wellspring of Death. I just love this series! The characters are irascible, much like real life, and with Beaton's wonderful sense of humor and description, I enjoy reading this so much that the mystery itself is secondary!

I like the character "Agitha Raisin", I thought she lost some of her independance in this story. However, she still is entertaining.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not MC Beaton's best, 7. August 1998
I am a fan of both Hamish McBeth and Agatha Raisin but this one was a disappointment. Agatha's relationship (or lack of one) with James was a little tiresome this time. I've also about had it with her insecurity concerning her age and looks and need for casual sex with younger men to make her feel better. She's a strong woman and I'd like to see her begin to come to grips with the aging process. The cast of characters were a nasty bunch and I found myself cheering for Mrs. Bloxey rather than our heroine in this installment. Let's hope the next one improves.
