I found out about this book from the Daily Deal email I get from Audible. I read the blurb, saw the star rating was pretty good, and dropped my $2.95. I was pretty quickly engaged and found the various characters inhabiting the small village in the Cotswolds great fun to get to know. I laughed ou...

The first book in a series with a former PR lady who retired early to settle in a cottage in the English countryside. She is a spicy character, with few social graces - but she is lovable! I really enjoyed this mystery and look forward to digging in to this series.

Picked this up after hearing about the series on The Readers podcast (great podcast, check it out). I didn't really think it was the type of book for me, but I was wrong. I think Agatha Raisin is a great character and will be looking forward to reading more in the series. The mystery itself was fun ...

Okay, I'm a fan of Agatha Raisin. I love that she [ bought a quiche to compete in a contest while talking about her wonderful crust (hide spoiler)]. I love how she yells in anger and then cries behind closed doors (like most of us would do). How although she appears to not care what people think abo...

My path to Agatha Raisin is a twisty one. I came to M.C. Beaton based on my somewhat foolish over-fondness for the Hamish MacBeth TV Series. That led me to pick up some of the Hamish Macbeth books which were fine but I became disappointed with them after reading only a few mostly because I found ...

I’ve read some of the author’s Regency romances, but this is a very different animal, a cosy murder mystery in the style of Agatha Christie, the first in a long series featuring grumpy middle-aged Agatha Raisin, a London PR executive taking early retirement in the picturesque Cotswolds and finding i...

I had read all of the Raisin mysteries up to the one published 2007 but couldn't remember any of the specifics, except that Agatha is sort of off-putting and she eats a lot of microwaved meals. So I'm reading them again. She isn't a very sympathetic character on the outside, which is why I enjoy he...
