After six months in London, Agatha Raisin returns to her beloved Cotswold village--and her dashing neighbor, James Lacey. But James might not be so interested in Agatha. Soon enough after her return, Agatha becomes consumed by her other passion: crime-solving. A woman's been found dead in a lonely field nearby. Her name's Jessica Tartinck, a hiker who infuriated wealthy landowners by insisting on her hiking club's right to trek across their properties. Now it's up to Agatha, with James's help, to launch an investigation. Together, they'll follow no shortage of leads; Jessica's fellow walkers seem all too willing and able to commit murder. But the trail of a killer is as easy to lose as your heart--and your life.

The Walkers of Dembley --- by --- M. C. Beaton.
This is an early installment in the career of Agatha Raisin: Agatha hasn’t as yet embarked on her career of sleuthing; she hasn’t as yet wed her neighbour, James Lacey; Sir Charles is the victim of a crime, one lucky to survive, saved by the timely arrival and intervention of James and Agatha. The story line, however, is just as challenging as ever: they don’t call a novel like this a mystery for nothing: it’s a mystery until the end who did the crimes.
