Book:Dishing the dirt:2016 Book
Author: Beaton, M C
Year: 2016
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Constable
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: New York: Minotaur Books, 2015 A therapist had moved into the village of Carsely and Agatha Raisin hates her. Not only was this therapist, Jill Davent, romancing Agatha's ex-husband, but she had dug up details of Agatha's slum background. Added to that, Jill was counselling a woman called Gwen Simple from Winter Parva and Agatha firmly believed Gwen to have assisted her son in some grisly murders, although has no proof she had done so. A resentment is different from a dislike and needs to be shared, so as the friendship between James and Jill grows stronger, the more Agatha does to try to find out all she can about her.
