About this deal

I was much more engaged in the story given I had the context of the characters and setting after watching the first three seasons of the show. Agatha is determined to have an old fashioned Christmas, complete with friends, decorations, good food, and romance. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.

Even the murder of a Mrs Tamworthy, poisoned with hemlock, does little to distract her and yet it should, as Mrs Tamworthy had written to Agatha, telling her that one of her family wanted to see her dead before the year was out.

Also, it gives Agatha a chance to show her maternal side, while at the same time giving her another mirror for her insecurities and fear of aging.

One day she received an intriguing letter from a wealthy woman scared she would be killed by one of her children. The Christmas celebration doesn't go exactly as she'd hoped, but the mystery gets solved, and Agatha realizes that she should refocus her romantic aspirations. If you were to give her a very thoughtful expensive gift, she would berated you and make you suffer because it wasn't perfect.With DCI Wilkes on vacation, Bill stays on as lead officer on the case, lending Agatha a helping hand. Only in the very last chapter do we have an early Christmas party, and it all falls very flat and isn’t festive. It’s pointed out a couple of times it’s early October, but Agatha occasionally dreams of organising a Dickensian Christmas. Agatha's in need of a well-earned break and with Christmas just around the corner it looks like the perfect opportunity to relax.
