Love, Lies and Liquor (An Agatha Raisin Mystery) by M. C. Beaton

Agatha Raisin is lonely. Busy as she is with her detective agency and the meetings of the Carsely Ladies Society, she still misses her ex-husband, James Lacey, so she welcomes his return to the cottage next door with her usual triumph of optimism over experience---especially when he invites her on holiday at a surprise location that was once very dear to him. With visions of a romantic hideaway in Italy or the Pacific dancing in her head, Agatha goes off happily with James to...Snoth-on-Sea, in Sussex. While James may have fond memories of boyhood holidays there, Snoth-on-Sea has seen better days, as has the once-grand Palace Hotel, now run-down and tacky and freezing cold. Nor do the other guests have much to recommend them, especially the brassy honeymoon couple, Mr. and Mrs. Jankers, who pick a fight with Agatha in the dining room. But trouble has a way of following Agatha even if romance does not: Just as she and James are preparing to flee to warmer climes, Geraldine Jankers is found dead on the beach---strangled with Agathas scarf. So much for Agathas holiday fantasies: Not only is it time to put her detective skills to work, but the police are not even sure that shell be allowed to leave town. Agatha Raisin is lonely.
