First of all, thanks for the gift of this book, Virginia! This was my first Agatha Raisin book and, since it's #18, I am sure that there are plenty of events from the character's past that would be explained in the first 17 books.
As a stand alone mystery, I was surprised how many clues and revelations were discovered by secondary characters rather than the protagonist/detective herself. I would like to have seen Agatha solving the mystery, finding the clues, etc.
