Agatha Raisin's marriage was put off when her ex-husband showed up, unfortunately alive. Unlike the other books in this series, Terrible Tourist is 95% soap opera about Agatha's (often funny and very wry) obsession with James Lacey, and 5% "mystery".

The sixth book in the Agatha Raisin series is unlike the rest, in that the majority of the book takes place outside the Cotswolds

The sixth book in the Agatha Raisin series is unlike the rest, in that the majority of the book takes place outside the Cotswolds. This story picks up right where its predecessor, Agatha Raisin and the Murderous Marriage, left off: Agatha found a note from James Lacey, proclaiming his love for her but advising that he needs some time and has left for North Cypress. Agatha heads off to Cypress to win James back

Agatha Raisin's marriage was put off when her ex-husband showed up, unfortunately alive. Books related to Agatha Raisin and the Terrible Tourist. Fortunately, he was murdered and Agatha solved the crime. Now she is off to Cyprus to track down her ex-fiance. Instead of enjoying their planned honeymoon, however, they witness the murder of an obnoxious tourist. Two sets of terrible tourists surround the unhappy couple, arousing Agatha's suspicions. And, much to James' chagrin, she won't rest until she finds the killer.

Carsely enfolded Agatha and the whole north Cyprus adventure appeared like a bad dream. That’s us policemen for you, said Bill, his eyes crinkling up with amusement. The solving of the murders in Cyprus had appeared in the British press and on television but there was no mention of Agatha. I am an unsung detective, she said to Bill Wong when he called round one day. No murders for me, Bill? Nothing. In fact, it’s the quietest time we’ve had for a long spell and I like it that way.

The tough and brassy Agatha Raisin is not a woman to sit at home wringing her hands. Soon she is off to north Cyprus to track down her ex-fiance. Instead of enjoying the honeymoon they once planned, however, they witness the murder of an obnoxious tourist in a disco, and James is as sullen as usual. Two sets of terrible tourists – one set posh and rude, the other nouveau riche and vulgar – surround the unhappy couple, arousing Agatha’s suspicions. And, much to James’s chagrin, she won’t rest until she finds the killer

In her sixth case, this intrepid sleuth gets left at the altar and then follows her wayward fiance+a7, James Lacey, to north Cyprus, where instead of enjoying their honeymoon they witness the murder of an obnoxious tourist in a disco. 15,000 first printing.

I was afraid that I wouldn't like this one since it is not back in the Cotswolds but rather in Cyprus but Agatha manages to bring the Cotswolds right along with her in this fun book. Now, I think Agatha should have let James run off as he did, say Good Riddance and go on with her life but that wouldn't fit the character as she has been written. Agatha is not going to take anything sitting down. She is going to get up and do something about it even if its a stupid thing to do. That's how she gets into so much trouble. What I love about these Agatha Raisin books is that you can't put it down but it won't give you nightmares. I love this series.

In this, the sixth book of this cozy British mystery series, the irrepressible Agatha Raisin is still enthralled with her handsome neighbor and ex fiancé, retired colonel James Lacey, who has left the comfortable environ of their Cotswold village of Carsely for Cyprus to seek refuge from Agatha after their engagement came to an abrupt end at the altar.

The heartsick Agatha also takes off for Cyprus, which was where she and James were to have spent their honeymoon, hoping to catch up with him and make right what went wrong. Along the way, Sir Charles Fraith turns up and creates an interesting diversion for her. Unfortunately, by the time she meets up with James, she has also met up with a party of British tourists, and when one of them dies under mysterious circumstances, once again, she and James, as well as that entire party of tourists, are all suspects.

Of course, Agatha and James, despite their differences, once again team up to do some amateur sleuthing. Stung by James' observation that her previous sleuthing successes have been due solely to some happenstance bumbling, Agatha is determined to prove him wrong and show that she has the right stuff. When a second murder occurs, however, Agatha should be afraid, very afraid.

While I enjoyed this book, I did not enjoy it a much as the others, as I missed the goings on in the village of Carsely, which is part of the charm of the series. Still, fans of Agatha will definitely want to read this one, as the life and loves of Agatha Raisin are something they will not want to miss.

I will start off by saying that I like the Agatha Raisin series. She is a character. With that being said, I must say that this was not my favorite book. I wish she would quit running after James. She is a strong person but this almost teenage-like crush just doesn't suit her. I thought that James acted as you would expect him to, with him always being rather inconsiderate and selfish.
Also, there was WAY too much history of Cyprus and Turkey in this book. The mystery itself was okay but was more of a side story. Go back to the Cotswolds with all the familiar characters in Carsely such as Mrs. Bloxby. Still, an author probably wants a change of scenery for her main characters every once in a while. Please leave out so much history though. I will still read more Agatha to see what she's going to do next.

Once again MC Beaton has done a wonderful job of making her characters come alive. I continue to love the twists and turns she throws at the reader but the conclusions continue to be quite satisfying. Someday I plan to reread all of her book in chronolgical order although many of her early books are quite difficult to find. If and when I can figure out doing this I know it will once again be a fabulous use of time.

I love Mrs. Gibbons and I love Agatha Raisin, but I'm not sure what happened here. Agatha seems off key and the whole book felt out of tune with the rest of the series, not to mention the annoying and, in my opinion, not very factually accurate political propaganda mixed in! Very odd book.
  • Light out of Fildon
Another in Agatha Raisin series but located on island off Turkey so very interesting to me for the customs, foods, historical sites, housing, roads, and scenery. Added another character to the mix who hopefully will be a regular. All in all a good romp.

If by any chance this is your first Agatha Raisin read, put it down and start earlier in the series. While these stories are technically cozies, they have much more wit and bite than others I've read. Unlike the other books in this series, Terrible Tourist is 95% soap opera about Agatha's (often funny and very wry) obsession with James Lacey, and 5% "mystery". I, like many, will forgive Agatha basically anything, so I read this book with pleasure. But if it had been the first one I had picked up in the series, I don't know that I would have been inspired to read any more, and that would have been a great loss, to me. I am thrilled I discovered this series so late in the game, because I have all of these books to look forward to. Terrible Tourist just wouldn't be at the top of my list.
The book is more about a miserable middle aged woman who makes terrible decisions about men. This book does disservice to British detective characters.
