They seem more simplistic somehow - just not as complex and interesting as they used to be. They basically are now just using the same old formula: Charles in and out of her life; Toni successful on cases and Agatha a bit jealous; Agatha getting into some kind of trouble for which Bill must bail her out; Roy coming down for the weekend, egging her on and then running back home; James hovering somewhere in the background, and Mrs. Bloxby there for moral support.
Does anyone else notice this? To me it is a bit like the Cat Who... series by Lilian Jackson Braun, they were great in the beginning, but around the 17th book started to fall apart, yet she wrote another 12 books. I don't want to be premature, but I certainly hope that this is not happening with M.C. Beaton because she has been one of the few cozy mystery authors whose plots are complex and who do not rely on gimicks, in my opinion.
