Product Description

Review

Agatha Raisin is sharp, witty, hugely intelligent, unfailingly entertaining, delightfully intolerant and oh so magnificently no (Anne Robinson)

Beaton's dry sense of humour and her unflattering but affectionate portrait of gruff, often adolescent acting Agatha make this... tale a bloom worth picking. (Publishers Weekly)

Review

'M. C. Beaton's imperfect heroine is an absolute gem.' (Publishers Weekly)

'The detective novels of M. C. Beaton, a master of outrageous black comedy, have reached cult status.' (The Times)

'The Miss Marple-like Raisin is a refreshing, sensible, wonderfully eccentric, thoroughly likeable heroine.' (Booklist)

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!

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.

If you haven't read any of the Agatha Raisin stories, start with Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death, and continue in order. In doing so, you'll be disappointed when you come to this one.

It appears that M. C. Beaton went on holiday for this book and asked an aspiring novelist to take her place as author. Just kidding! But Agatha Raisin and the Haunted House is almost a satire of an Agatha Raisin mystery rather than the real deal, and there's an inexplicable lapse in continuity concerning Sir Charles Fraith that makes you wonder if M. C. Beaton reads her own books.

Agatha has yet another new neighbor in James Lacey's old cottage: This time it's Paul Chatterton, a handsome computer consultant, whose wife prefers to live in Madrid. Paul has heard that Agatha has a reputation in Carsely for affairs, and he's interested in finding out the facts. Needless to say, Agatha is soon dreaming of being Mrs. Paul Chatterton and hoping that James Lacey will see the wedding announcement in the Times. At Paul's insistence, the pair plans to spend a night at the "haunted" house of Mrs. Witherspoon. After a mysterious mist appears, Agatha is frightened by seeing Mrs. Witherspoon with a face mask on, and Agatha flees . . . annoying both Paul and Mrs. Witherspoon. Their future watching has to be done outside, but Agatha trips over a trash can and scares off whoever is there.

The detecting duo swears off any most ghostbusting until they learn that Mrs. Witherspoon was found dead with a broken neck in her cottage, an unlikely event given the state of the stairs and her health. After the police decide that Mrs. Witherspoon's son may be the murderer, the son and daughter invite Agatha and Paul to investigate.

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!

"Agatha in the past had had a way of unearthing things by simply blundering about." And in this 14th novel she is still doing it.

Apparently there is a house that is haunted, trouble is the owner and occupier of the house is not at all liked with anyone locally. They have all seemed to have run ins with her and even her children are not overly enamoured.

Agatha bored and with her head turned by yet another new neighbour Paul Chatterton she sets off to find out a bit more. Of course we end up with dead bodies and the police taking a particular dislike to Agatha yet again, blundering about but someone has specifically asked for Agatha to look into it, which gives her an idea?

All the old favourite characters are here, Mrs Bloxby the Vicar's wife who I am now convinced is slightly envious of the exploits that Agatha gets up to. Bill Wong's love life is still not got any better and I cannot ever see it doing so. Sir Charles Fraith, reappears it seems to help Agatha get everything sorted. Trouble is Sir Charles brings trouble along the way as he lets other people assume including Paul Chatterton that there is more going on with Agatha than is true. This amusing diversion seems to have not lost any impact in the books at this point in the series.

As always Agatha is struggling with being Agatha. She so desperately wants to be loved but just sees herself as a "stuffy middle-aged woman" and probably until she changes that outlook nothing is going to go right for her. By the end of this novel, she has a new outlook and perhaps as the series progresses life will change......
