Synopsis:
High flying, PR exec. Agatha Raisin has decided to leave the rat race and retire prematurely to the sleepy village of Carsely in the Cotswolds. Desperate to make friends and fit in Agatha enters the village's quiche-making competition and to be sure of a win sneaks a trip to buy her quiche from a London deli. When the judge is found dead after eating the offending quiche she is exposed as a cheat and the prime suspect in a murder investigation. In order to clear her name, Agatha turns amateur sleuth to find the real murderer and salvage the life she has dreamed of.
Outspoken, opinionated and never afraid to speak her mind, she harnesses all the skills at her fingertips and, with the help of her cleaner Rosie and her best friend Roy, unearths a fair few secrets along the way.

Read the book instead - Agatha Raisin: The Quiche of Death review by DG

If you've read the books, you probably won't recognise this as Agatha Raisin. She's young, slim and blonde, as opposed to old, chunky and dark. This seems a very loose adaptation, with everyone being made younger and sexier. The storyline such as it is, involves a murder, by poisoned quiche at the local village fĂȘte.

The books have really suffered as the series drags on, and this seems to take the worst of the later books and run with it, instead of taking the early well written ones as it's basis.

If you haven't read the books this will probably please you if you're a fan of cozy murder mystery, tho it's hard to imagine all these young sexy clichéd characters settling in a sleepy Cotswolds village in the first place.
