A Dog Days Mystery (2 Book Series)
From Book 1:

New to the historic town of Metamora, Indiana, Cameron Cripps-Hayman is looking to make friends with her neighbors. What she isn’t looking for is one of their bodies floating in the canal.

When she and her estranged husband, the town sheriff, are both suspected of murder, Cameron takes crime solving into her own hands, teaming up with her eccentric group of volunteers who dub themselves The Metamora Action Agency. 

As if hunting for a murderer with two high school geniuses, the town drunk, and an elderly kleptomaniac isn’t hard enough, Cameron adopts the five mangy guard dogs of her deceased neighbor. But maybe a stint at playing gatekeeper is just what she needs to come face-to-face with the killer and save another neighbor from being the next victim.

Ein eigenes Cottage in den malerischen Cotswolds - davon hat Agatha Raisin schon immer geträumt. Jetzt ist dieser Wunsch endlich wahr geworden.

Doch Agatha ist es gewohnt, ihren Kopf durchzusetzen. Um Eindruck zu schinden, reicht sie beim örtlichen Backwettbewerb eine Feinkost-Quiche ein, die sie als ihre eigene ausgibt. Dumm ist allerdings, dass einer der Preisrichter stirbt und in Agathas Quiche Gift gefunden wird. Nun muss sie nicht nur zugeben, dass sie gemogelt hat, sondern auch versuchen, den Mordverdacht gegen sich auszuräumen.
