Book 33 of the light Agatha Raisin cozy mysteries, Devil’s Delight, is set at a nudist club, where Agatha, who is on her way to a wedding comes across a naked man who is running along the road. The nude man, Edward, has discovered a body at the club. When Agatha and her friend and co-worker, Toni, stop to help the man, they find that the body has disappeared. Of course when the police come, they don’t believe them and don’t investigate. After the wedding Agatha becomes involved in the investigation, puts herself and her co-workers in danger. There are also some sub-plots that make this book lots of fun.

This novel is not only fun, but the story is well-written and flows to keep readers on the edge. Although humorous, there is some building suspense, and the characters find themselves in trouble. Agatha, the protagonist, is well developed – always searching for love, and sometimes finding great companions; her way of thinking is very unique and she is likeable. The supporting characters are also well-developed, and some are absolutely hateful – Beaton and Green do an excellent job with the good and bad supporting characters, but, although readers will have some good guesses as to who is committing the murders (there are several as the story goes on), they won’t be sure until the very end.

All told, this is a great series, and those who aren’t familiar with this series will want to read the delightful previous novels.
