Devil's Delight by MC Beaton ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

On the way to her friends' wedding, a naked man in the roadway flags down the car. He tells Agatha and Toni that he saw a dead body, but when they get to the spot in the woods the body is gone. While the cops wave the man off since there's no body, Agatha can't let it go. When a few days later a body is found in the lake, she knows Edward wasn't lying.

I enjoy MC Beaton's Agatha Raisin series but it is usually a series I pick up when need to fill in a gap in my reading list as such I usually listen to the audiobooks available at my digital library. It doesn't have many so it's been a while since I read one. So when I saw a new one was coming out I knew I had to read it.

I love that you can pick up any book in the series and just jump right in. There were quite a few new characters since the last book I read but I didn't have any problems figuring out who was who. 

The mystery is great. Raisin Investigations is actually involved in two mysteries. The first is the murder and the second is figuring out how drugs are getting into a posh girls' school. I figured out the second mystery before it was revealed but I was kept guessing on the murder.

It was funny that the story involves a nudist club. I have a new Korean friend and we were talking about the Korean Spa (if you've never been to one - you are naked in the jacuzzis and saunas) and she was somewhat surprised that I was okay with it (I went years ago with another Korean friend). It was just an odd coincidence to read a book with a nudist club. 

I really enjoyed the story. It is a pretty quick read, too. Whether you are an Agatha Raisin fan or just looking for a new cozy mystery to read, this is definitely a book to get.
