Agatha Raisin, her hair falling out after a problem during a previous investigation, travels to an old-fashioned hotel in order to repair the damage away from the neighbors in her all-too-cozy Cotswolds village. Unhappy about the slow recovery and prompted by the elderly residents of the resort, she consults the local witch for help. Agatha purchases a hair tonic (and a love potion, just in case!) and is soon sprouting hair and capturing the fancy of the village police inspector. But the... Audio Cassette edition.

She retreats to a resort for some relaxation and to give her hair some time to regrow, and quickly learns that there is a witch in town that might be able to provide a tonic to help in this process. While she is visiting the witch, she decides to purchase a love potion to help in her never-ending romantic problems. During her visit to the town, the witch is murdered, and Agatha attempts to help the local police officer solve the case, and also tries to catch his eye in the process. I enjoyed this case primarily because Agatha was not mooning over James Lacey as she has in previous books. I enjoy the character of Agatha, and since I am rooting for her to have a good romance, I felt that it might actually happen for her with Jimmy. Overall, I enjoyed the book as a part of the Agatha series, but if you have never read any of the other books it would probably be better to start elsewhere first. This was not Agatha at her most endearing but still an excellent read. The first book in the series is "Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death". Enjoy!
