Book Description

2 Jan 2014
Eye of newt, toe of frog ...and murder most foul! Left with bald patches thanks to the wicked doings of a murderer from a previous investigation, Agatha flees to coastal Wyckhadden to re-grow her lost locks. With hair tonic supplied by a local witch, Agatha's tresses begin to flow - but the witch is found bludgeoned to death. The odd elderly residents of Agatha's elegantly faded hotel seem innocuous, but as she delves deeper she discovers secrets best left and powerful motives for revenge. Balancing the amorous attentions of police inspector Jimmy Jessop with an ever more treacherous search for the killer, Agatha is at her wits' end - and ready to cast a spell of her own. Praise for the "Agatha Raisin" series: 'Sharp, witty, hugely intelligent, unfailingly entertaining, delightfully intolerant and oh so magnificently non-PC, M.C. Beaton has created a national treasure' - Anne Robinson. 'M.C. Beaton's imperfect heroine is an absolute gem' - "Publishers Weekly". 'The Miss Marple-like Raisin is a refreshing, sensible, wonderfully eccentric, thoroughly likeable heroine' - "Booklist".

Agatha is on top form in another fine entry in this very enjoyable
series. Highly recommended, and probably unique.

4.0 out of 5 stars More About Agatha Than Murder... 25 Mar 2009
By L. Hill
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have to say, that i think the other two reviews are a little harsh on Agatha Raisin number 09.

If you look through the Amazon listings of the Agatha Raisin series you will see that any of the books that are set away from Carsley (and that don't feature James highly) get worse reviews than the ones that do, this is only natural i suppose as we miss the regular character like Mrs. Bloxby, James Lacey, Bill Wong, etc. But we shouldn't condemn the book just because of that, after all there are only so many murders that can happen in Carsley.

I think what maybe the other reviewers felt wrong about this book is that really the murder plays second fiddle plot wise, and that the main focus of the book is about Agatha. She isn't really all that interested in the crime, or goes at it like her normal bulldog self; she tends to spend more time with the residents of the Garden hotel or new love interest Jimmy Jessop. She learns some tough and lessons, as well as softening up and trying to help people more. In General the book shows her grow, something she must do before James comes back on the scene.

I really enjoyed learning about Agatha in this book, and enjoyed the characters (particularly the demanding friendship between Mary and Jennifer which I thought was well developed) and setting of a small sea side town out of season, and that the witch craft element of the story was kept minimal.

Deff deserves more praise !

4.0 out of 5 stars DING DONG THE WITCH IS DEAD... 9 Feb 2012
By Lawyeraau HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
In this ninth book of this contemporary cozy mystery series, the indomitable Agatha Raisin is now trying to recover from her last adventure in which she lost large clumps of hair when she got into a tangle with a murderer. Greatly upset over this turn of events, after all, her glossy hair is her shining glory, Agatha retreats to a seaside town to grow out her tresses.

Although the hotel she is staying in seems more like a geriatric residence and hardly like a resort, Agatha makes the best of it. While there, she decides to visit a self-professed witch for a hair restorer to help the hair growth process along. She also indulges in a love potion. After all, Agatha is woman in her fifties who is trying to look her best and, despite the encroachment of the aging process, is still looking for love, despite James Lacey, who has broken her heart and for whom she still secrets longs.

What is a girl to do? Well, Agatha tries out the potion on the local constable and, wouldn't you know, it seems to work. When the witch and then her daughter are murdered, however, once again, Agatha gets involved, snooping around to find out who among them is a killer. What follows is typical Agatha Raisin. There are many twists and turns, as Agatha, our ever engaging heroine, bumbles along as she tries to discover just who is up to no good. Fans of our heroine will not be disappointed.

As always, the dialogue is laced with humor and moves the plot along at a brisk pace, and the book is peppered with a host of interesting, quirky characters that entertain the reader. Agatha herself is entertaining as always, as she engages in her investigative efforts. This is a highly addictive series that makes the reader race off to get the next volume.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Plot! 25 Nov 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Found these books really interesting, loved the plots and laughed at the way she rants over the everyday things. It is an easy book to read but did not want to put it down.

4.0 out of 5 stars Agatha at the seaside - as good as at home 18 Nov 2011
By joc66 TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A change of scene for Agatha in this, her ninth adventure. She has fled to seaside town of Wykhadden, out of season, to wait for her hair to grow back after a hairdresser used depilatory cream on her scalp at the end of book eight. (Agatha Raisin and the Wizard of Evesham (Agatha Raisin 08) She stays at the Garden Hotel, and finds herself drawn (reluctantly at first) into the world of its strange collection of elderly residents, as well as to local police inspector Jimmy Jessop. However, you can probably predict, if you've read others in this series, where Agatha is, often there is also trouble afoot, and so it proves to be the case here. Our heroine (if that is the right word), soon finds herself helping the police with their enquiries in more ways than one. As with other Agatha Raisin books, the intricacies of the plot aren't really central. Instead they are more of a backdrop against which the author allows Agatha free rein to be her gloriously abrasive and relentlessly curious self. Even though she is away from home, we do get glimpses of some of her old friends from Carsley, but not as much as usual, which will be a disappointment for some.
This series of books is entertaining, easy reading. If you are looking for complex mysteries or gritty police procedural detail, then this isn't going to be for you. However, I'm looking forward to reading book 10 Agatha Raisin and the Fairies of Fryfam (Agatha Raisin 10) to see what Agatha will be up to next. It isn't essential to read these books in order, but I do think you'd get the most out of them if you start at the beginning rather than dipping in randomly.
