"When therapist Jill Davent moved to the village of Carsely, Agatha Raisin was not a fan. Not only was this therapist romancing Agatha's ex-husband but she dug up details of Agatha's not-too-glamorous origins. Jill also counsels a woman, Gwen Simple, that Agatha firmly believes assisted her son in some grisly murders, although there is no proof. Not one to keep her feelings to herself, Agatha tells anyone that would listen that Jill is a charlatan and better off dead. Agatha could only sigh with relief when the therapist took an office in Mircester. When Agatha learns that Jill had hired a private detective to investigate her background, she barges into Jill's office and gives her a piece of her mind, yelling "I could kill you!" So when Jill is found strangled to death in her office two days later, Agatha becomes the prime suspect. But Agatha, along with her team of private detectives, is determined to prove her innocence and find the real culprit. This time Agatha must use her skills to save her own skin. With Dishing the Dirt, MC Beaton proves that "once you meet Agatha Raisin, you'll keep coming back."(New York Journal of Books)"--… (mer)

Agatha and the Therapist
Review of the Blackstone Audio Inc. audiobook edition (September 2015) of the original St. Martin's Press Minotaur hardcover (September 2015)

Dishing the Dirt finds Agatha suspicious of yet another incomer, therapist Jill Davent, who is apparently spreading rumours about her lower class beginnings, and romancing Agatha's ex-husband James Lacey as well, to add injury to insult. Meanwhile, suspicions linger about Gwen Simple from the previous book #25 The Blood of an Englishman. The therapist is of course murdered and Agatha is the number one suspect again. The formula is definitely getting tired at this point, and extra murders are piled on top and increased nastiness between characters is added to mix things up, but it removes the joy and pleasure of the original 20 or so stories.

These cozies are always somewhat different from the TV-series which I saw first. Agatha is definitely more cranky in the books, but her human faults and foibles make us accept and love her nevertheless. The formula is set in stone now for the series. Agatha finds a new man, is jealous of ex-husband James Lacey and occasional lover/friend Charles Fraith, is jealous and meddling with Toni Gilmour's love life, helps Roy Silver out despite his publicity transgressions, gets sympathy from Mrs. Bloxby, is helped by first village friend Detective Sergeant Bill Wong, etc.

The narration of this book #26 is a part of an extended interregnum for books #25 to #29 by narrator Alison Larkin. Series regular Penelope Keith returns for books #30 to #32. Larkin is fine in the role, but I've grown most used to Keith's manner of adding character to the different voices.

Most (28 of 32) of the Agatha Raisin audiobooks are free on Audible Plus. A continuation series Book 32 Down the Hatch is yet to be released, and is expected to be published on October 26, 2021. Down the Hatch is apparently entirely written by continuation writer R.W. Green, whereas #31 Hot to Trot was a collaboration with M.C. Beaton.

  A2Seamster | Apr 9, 2021 |
This was another fabulously fun read featuring Agatha Raisin. Dishing the Dirt finds Agatha at odds with her new neighbor, therapist, Jill Davent. Jill is seeing Agatha's ex-husband and is counseling a suspected killer, Gwen Simple. Agatha's dislike for Jill is no secret and she becomes a suspect when the therapist is found murdered.

As always, Agatha gets up to her usual shenanigans and finds herself in heaps of trouble. The stories are somewhat formulaic, but Agatha is such a funny character, along with the villagers, that it's hard to put these down. ( )
