About this deal

After marrying Harry Scott Gibbons and having a son, Charles, Marion went to the United States where Harry had been offered the job of editor of the Oyster Bay Guardian.

But having enjoyed the tv series and in anticipation of the tv show of this book debuting tomorrow on Acorn, I decided I'd give it another go. Only two things seem to offer potential excitement: the upcoming Christmas festivities and her ex, James Lacey.I actually like the more 'real' subjects she touches upon, but she pushes these tough subjects back into the cozy realm.

BEATON (1936-2019) was the author of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling Agatha Raisin novels -- the basis for the hit show on Acorn TV and public television -- as well as the Hamish Macbeth series and the Edwardian Murder Mysteries featuring Lady Rose Summer. I do know that our society treats older women so much worse than older men, but this character acerbates that sad issue. When that didn’t work out, they went to Virginia and Marion worked as a waitress in a greasy spoon on the Jefferson Davies in Alexandria while Harry washed the dishes. Eager to soak up every ounce of drama, Agatha puts everyone in the village under a microscope, including the victim’s own children. I love Agatha Raisin and some of the main characters but my advice is the same as I would give about smoking, don't start because its really hard to quit.Bloxby, and with a new hire at the agency, Toni, and a surprise at Agatha's Christmas dinner, are all quite entertaining and make this one a delightful cozy mystery.

Kissing Christmas Goodbye was adapted for the currently ongoing Agatha Raisin TV series (2016-) on Acorn TV. And in her dreams, James Lacey kissed her under the mistletoe, and, like a middle-aged sleeping beauty, she would awake to passion once more. I enjoyed Kissing Christmas Goodbye - Agatha Raisin is my guilty pleasure and one that I keep secret from my friends and family. Most books I read were mediocre and not worthy of reviews, or re-reads not of the sterling quality either. Known as the “Queen of Crime” (The Globe and Mail), she was born in Scotland and started her career writing historical romances under several pseudonyms as well as her maiden name, Marion Chesney.

Full of all her usual fun (even when not intended ) I will down load the next story The 18th in the series.
