The Quiche of Death
The Quiche of Death: An Agatha Raisin Mystery | M. C. Beaton
Celebrating 20 Years of Agatha RaisinBrand-New Bonus Story Included! Putting all her eggs in one basket, Agatha Raisin gives up her successful PR firm, sells her London flat, and samples a taste of early retirement in the quiet village of Carsely. Bored, lonely and used to getting her way, she enters a local baking contest: Surely a blue ribbon for the best quiche will make her the toast of the town. But her recipe for social advancement sours when Judge Cummings-Browne not only snubs her entrybut falls over dead! After her quiche's secret ingredient turns out to be poison, she must reveal the unsavory truth... Agatha has never baked a thing in her life! In fact, she bought her entry ready-made from an upper crust London quicherie. Grating on the nerves of several Carsely residents, she is soon receiving sinister notes. Has her cheating and meddling landed her in hot water, or are the threats related to the suspicious death? It may mean the difference between egg on her face and a coroner's tag on her toe... The Quiche of Death is the first installment in the beloved Agatha Raisin mystery series by bestselling author M.C. Beaton.

Agatha Raisin is very different from a lot of female sleuths, but I think that‘s what makes her so interesting. It was fun to read the first book in this series and get all her back story. This is an interesting mystery in a setting (the Cotswolds) that I really want to visit. Thanks again @BlameJennyJane for introducing me to Agatha. I‘d never known about these books without Litsy. No pictures of quiche, so it‘s just my peach crumb pie.

Agatha is considered a #MardyBum by quite a few people. I think she‘s a riot, especially as she tries to make nice with her new neighbors. Poisoned quiche, anyone? This is the first in the Agatha Raisin series - they‘re quick, Agatha‘s cantankerous yet hysterical, and she seems to stumble into murder wherever she goes. #Ayupaugust

I have read this one before but I wanted to refresh my memory because I‘m planning to read more Agatha Raisin for #CozyintheSun this month! I still liked the story, although it makes me realize how the TV version changed Agatha some. The TV version isn‘t nearly as grumpy. The audiobook from my library includes book two so I‘m starting it soon. Then I‘m going to rewatch the episodes.

The first book i read by M.C Beaton!
My grandmother used to read M.C Beaton titles when i was a little girl and the covers always used to appeal to me. I thoroughly enjoyed this title!
The Agatha Raisin series have a lovely humorous aspect to them to make light reading.

As the newbie in the Village, it's assumed that Agatha is behind poisoning her quiche with the intent of murdering, but can she prove she's innocent with the village against her?

The county libraries changed computer systems, which broke user access to their library catalogue and audiobook app for more than 2 weeks. 😣 Now audiobook access is back, at least, just in time for me to renew and download my reserved books before they expired. 😅 Easter is crime/mystery time for all Norwegians, and I'm ready to clean, cook, and decorate whilst listening to this strange title. 😁

A dreary morning makes for bad lighting but reading this book has cheered me up. It's a delightful romp about a poisoned quiche entered in a village cooking contest. Agatha Raisin, recent incomer from London, can't cook to save her life and had in fact bought said quiche from a bakery, sets out to put things right.
Warning: grumpy main character; lots of microwaved meals; might make you think twice about retiring to little English village

RealLifeReading @nelehelen like @readinginthedark said, it's a fun read! 2y
RealLifeReading @MinDea to be honest I don't have a recipe! It's more of a splash some sesame oil, a tsp or so of soy sauce, a bit of oyster sauce (if you don't have oyster sauce, you can leave it out), and a squirt of ketchup (my husband prefers his without ketchup and he puts siracha instead). I also put in some white pepper and mix it up, it's just up to your taste, and adjust. Then throw your cooked noodles in. And adjust if it's not enough 2y
RealLifeReading @MinDea I do that a lot w instant noodles - I boil the noodles, throw out all the seasoning packets and make my own sauce. Sorry I don't have exact measurements but just go w small amounts and after you mix it up you can always add more if not tasty enough! Hope that helps 2y

I have only been on Litsy for a bit over a month, so there are thousands of books I loved before but the tagged book was a birthday gift last April and after I devoured it, I promptly hunted down the rest of the series.
It's a light, cozy mystery. Nothing to set the world on fire, but great for a relaxing read. Some people don't like Agatha's personality but she makes me giggle😀 (and sometimes cringe) 😬

"Agatha led them indoors. Detective Chief Inspector Wilkes introduced a dark, silent man beside him as Detective Sergeant Friend, and a young tubby oriental who looked like a Buddha as Detective Constable Wong."
