Another gripping Christmas time tale of murder by M.C Beaton.
I love the Agatha Raisin series a great deal!
I highly recommend this humorous series of books if you are after a light, easy read that is 100% a page turner full of murder and mystery!

Today I visited a historic site in Cornwall that had a small secondhand book shop on the property. So of course I had to buy a few! The money goes to the National Trust.

Omg! Somebody needs to send that librarian in these books back to library school and make her learn everything about patron privacy that she clearly didn‘t learn the first time. Obviously that wasn‘t the major plot here, but as a librarian, I notice these things. This book was just okay. I‘m glad, though, that Penelope Keith is back as the narrator. The last one was read by someone I didn‘t like quite as much.

Joanne1 I'm listening to the Hamish Macbeth mysteries by the same author. I love the narrator. Penelope keith would be excellent too I imagine. 1y
KathyWheeler @Joanne1 I read a couple of the Hamish Macbeth books years ago and remember liking them. I think I‘ll listen to one of them next. 1y

I think this is my first Agatha Raisin mystery novel. The murder and mayhem in this small English village reminds me of Midsomer Murders. I think this qualifies as a Christmas Cozy. I‘ll be reading more. An easy read. Read the whole book today.

Nute I‘m just becoming attracted to cozy mysteries. Maybe I should start with this author and this series. Is this the first book? Even when not necessary, I have to read them in order. 2y
Dragon No I think this one is very far along. Looking at the list I think @Nute the story about the quiche is first (edited) 2y
Dragon Just remembered I saw a TV movie of the above tagged book. I like that Agatha is not perfect.😀🐉 2y
