The Dead Ringer - M.C. Beaton


The church of St. Ethelred in the village of Thirk Magna is renowned for its team of bell-ringers, the troupe led by identical twins Mavis and Millicent Dupin. Mavis and Millicent are lifelong residents of the remote village—or were, until their home is broken into one night, and Millicent is murdered. But who’s the killer? Is it one of their co-workers, sick of being bullied to practice for a big performance? Or perhaps Joseph Kennell, a retired lawyer who was heard yelling at the sisters that he felt like strangling them? Kennell swears his innocence, and hires the ever-trusty (if often tipsy) Agatha Raisin to clear his name. Only she can find the killer—and hopefully a handsome man to buy her dinner while she’s at it.

Review: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

So, before we get into the review let me just say M.C. Beaton is my all time favorite author. I have every one of the Agatha Raisin series and Hamish Macbeth. They are my favorite books to read after I read a heavy book. I call them my palate cleansers. She always has great storylines, plot twists and her books keep me guessing. Her characters come to life and make me laugh and one book even made me cry (Highland Christmas). She is the first author I recommend.

Okay enough gushing about her. Here is the review :)

I love the Agatha Raisin series and this one didn't disappoint. Follow along as Agatha tries to solve murders and fall in love. The investigation kept me guessing until the very end (I didn't guess right either). I can't wait for the next one!
