As the Pig Turns by M. C. Beaton

Agatha is at it again with As the Pig Turns. When a petty police officer is brutally murdered, Agatha becomes a suspect of the police and at the same time a target of the real killers. While Agatha and her crew try to solve his murder, several more gruesome deaths occur. They uncover a sophisticated theft ring, fledgling meth labs and untrustworthy coppers.

Agatha Raisin is a bossy, irritating, self-centered, vain yet lovable British woman in her fifties. She had retired to the Cotswolds but started her own detection agency since murders seem to follow her. Watching her get in and out of scrapes is half the fun of reading these mysteries. This is the 22nd book in the series, and it does not disappoint. I love reading these British cozy mysteries because of the cast of characters; the vicar's wife, the kindly Mrs. Bloxby, quirky house guests, ex-boyfriends, an ex-husband and the local police force. Agatha has a softer side which is revealed in each new adventure. I highly recommend trying one of her stories. They are definitely fast reads!
