A Spoonful of Poison Summary
Cranky but lovable sleuth Agatha Raisins detective agency has become so successful that she wants nothing more than to take quality time for rest and relaxation. But as soon as she begins closing the agency on weekends, she remembers that when she has plenty of quality time, she doesnt know what to do with it. So it doesnt take much for the vicar of a nearby village to persuade her to help publicize the church fete - especially when the fairs organizer, George Selby, turns out to be a gorgeous widower.
