"Former London PR agent Agatha Raisin still hasn't adjusted to village life, where the only prospect for a hot evening out is a meeting of the Ladies Society. And since her overtures toward James Lacey---the retired military man next door--have failed, Agatha jumps at the chance to visit the new vet, who's single and good-looking. Although Agatha's tabby hasn't a thing wrong with him, Hodge endures a nasty physical exam in the name of romance. Unfortunately his sacrifice is all for naught when the vet is soon found dead next to a high-strung horse. The police call the vet's demise a freak accident, but Agatha convinces the hard-to-get James Lacey, who's also bored in the Cotswolds, that playing amateur detective might be fun. Unfortunately, just as curiosity killed the cat, Agatha's inept snooping is soon a motivation for murder ..."--Back cover.

Lady Fortescue (Poor Relations series) is more interesting than Agatha, and I'd much rather spend time with the villagers of Lochdubh (Hamish Macbeth series) than the people in Cotswold, but this series is tightly written, with interesting people and odd murders.
Warning: if you get the paperback, the "preview" at the back will spoil the next few books as it starts with a complete spoiler for the next 14 books. Don't look unless you are the kind of person who reads the last chapter first.

I am so glad I stumbled upon this series, which I am reading in order of publication. The stories are well-written and definitely cozy but not cutesy. There is a good dose of humor in this book, which I appreciated.
