Large print:Something borrowed someone dead:2015 Large print
Author: Beaton, M C
Year: 2015
Language: English
Type: Large print
Publisher: Magna
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Standard print edition originally published: London: C & R Crime, 2013 Incomer Gloria French is at first welcomed in the Cotswold village of Piddlebury. She seems like a do-gooder par excellence, raising funds for the church and caring for the elderly. But she has a bad habit of borrowing things and not giving them back, so when she is discovered dead, poisoned by a bottle of elderberry wine, folk in the village don't mourn her passing too intently. Parish councillor Jerry Tarrant hires Agatha Raisin to track down the murderer. But the village is creepy and secretive and the residents don't seem to want Agatha to find who the murderer is. Agatha's investigations are hampered by the emotional upset of finding that her ex, James Lacey, has fallen in love with young detective Toni Gilmour. And now the murderer seems to be targeting Agatha!

He certainly has no desire for a serious attachment - and as for marriage: never! But Lord Guy Carlton didn't factor in the lovely but very proper Miss Esther Jones. Although one of the richest women in England she is also one of the most innocent which could make her an unwilling victim of the philandering lord.
