Book Description

9 Nov 2006 Agatha Raisin
Reports of a haunted house soon have Agatha snooping around, but it turns out the victim is a universally disliked old biddy and someone is playing a practical joke. And then the old lady is murdered - but for Agatha, solving a crime is much more fun than hunting a ghost! Very soon she's up to her usual tricks, involving the villagers, local police, and, of course, her handsome new neighbour...

4.0 out of 5 stars Agatha is on the case! 20 July 2009
By Dot
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
M.C. Beaton has created another fantastic mystery in the Cotswolds and Agatha Raisin once again is there to save the day. I love her character, on the outside she is incredibly feisty and forward but the reader also gets to hear all the insecurities and worries that she carries round with her; making her a very believable and likable character. Her eye has been caught by her handsome new neighbour Paul Chatterton; he has a wife in Spain but is extremely flirtatious with Agatha so trouble soon ensues. Familiar characters from the series pop up in this book, there's Mrs Bloxby the vicar's wife, Bill Wong the policeman trying to keep Agatha out of trouble and Sir Charles Fraith, Agatha's part-time partner in crime. Beaton keeps you guessing to the very end about the death of the old lady and there are many red herrings along the way.
These books are a good, quick read, they keep you interested all the way through and the characters are so lovely that I always feel like I have spent the day with old friends whenever I read any of these!

I can't recommend these books highly enough. They amuse, entertain and provide escapism to the wonderful world of Agatha!! Ohhhh, how I'd love to move to the Cotswolds - if only to meet Agatha Raisin!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sadly, I'm hooked! 26 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I normally read horror and fantasy but read an Agatha Raisin belonging to my wife as a last resort when on holiday and without a book. Since then I have been hooked and have read nearly all the series now. This book is one of the better stories but they are all funny and easy to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Agatha Raisin please... 12 Nov 2012
By C. FULLER TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
This story comes immediately before Agatha sets up her own detective agency and includes the first chapter of the next bool ...and the Deadly Dance.
I enjoyed the Haunted House and all the characters created by M C Beaton. The locations are well drawn and the different men in her life a real hoot. Good to read of her long time friend DCBill Wong later to become a Sgt thanks to Agatha.
Great story with historical background, mad historians and odd bods galore all mixed up with 3 murders and Agatha and her cats...wonderful stuff. I look forward to the next good read...Perfect holiday reading.

This time Agatha and Charles investigate a haunted house in a neighbouring village. This is one of my personal favourites and very entertaining with Bill Wong and the gang tracking down villains.

5.0 out of 5 stars Agatha rides to the rescue once again! 27 April 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Another success for Agatha Raisin. With a new handsome neighbour, and a mystery in the next village, she is in her element.
Until the lovely Spanish wife of her neighbour turns up, and the old lady in the haunted house is found murdered, Agatha needs all her powers of deduction to solve these problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars M C Beaton 'Agatha Raisin and the Haunted House' 30 Dec 2004
By AngieB
Format:Hardcover
For those readers new to Agatha Raisin, I suggested you start with the first book 'Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death' and read the series in order. These books are brilliant. I have read the whole series of Agatha Raisin in the past 2 months. Those approaching Agatha Raisins age can sympathise with all the trials and tribulations of the things that come with aging (which can be hilarious). The books can keep you guessing 'til the end who dunnit or sometimes it can be easy to guess the murderer. Either way it's great escapism and I highly recommend every single Agatha Raisin book going. Can't wait for the next installed.
