Agatha Raisin and the Potted Gardener
Agatha Raisin and the Potted Gardener | M.C. Beaton
7 posts | 23 read | 7 to read
Agatha goes digging where she shouldn't... Agatha is taken aback when she finds a new woman ensconced in the affections of her attractive bachelor neighbour, James Lacey. The beautiful Mary Fortune is superior in every way, especially when it comes to gardening - and with Carsely Garden Open Day looming, Agatha feels this deficiency acutely. So when Mary is discovered murdered, buried upside down in a pot, Agatha seizes the moment and immediately starts yanking up village secrets by their roots and digging the dirt on the hapless victim. But Agatha has an awkward secret too . . . Praise for the Agatha Raisin series: 'Sharp, witty, hugely intelligent, unfailingly entertaining . . . M. C. Beaton has created a national treature.' Anne Robinson, The Times 'The Miss Marple-like Raisin is a refreshingly sensible, wonderfully eccentric, thoroughly likeable heroine.' Booklist

OMG, @BlameJennyJane you are the best swap partner, not the worst 😂 I love everything in my #cozyswap box, and I love how creative it is. The “weapon” is perfect! Thank you, thank you😘😘 Thanks also to @Avanders for her usual superb job of swap organizing.

BlameJennyJane Oh my goodness... still not sure about my swapworthiness... But you are welcome. 😊And it was only after the box left that I realized you despise gummy things and I sent those squishy brain candy things. Toss ‘em! Happy fall! Happy Cozy Season! 🍁🍁 3w

Thanks to my library‘s audiobook collection I‘m tearing through the Agatha Raisin series. This one was fun, even though the murder in this one was kind of creepy. I appreciate #CozyintheSun giving me an excuse to go straight to book 4!

Librarybelle You‘re making great progress with the series! 3mo
ferskner Wow! You have so many good picks for this challenge!

My adoration for the detail on how the murdered are found always intrigues me!

With jealousy streaking through Agatha at the new lady in the village, isn't it only natural for people to think that she is the murderess?
But is James as interested in a new love affair with someone other than Agatha or not? .....

The third I‘ve read and they all make me laugh out loud. The brilliant narration for the audiobook absolutely adds to my enjoyment of this series, along with the hilarious description of local villagers and the sharp, biting remarks of the main character. #agatharaisin

Sometimes you are in three mood for a cliched cozy mystery and sometimes you aren't. When you are, this is a good series to reach for.

Linsy Agreed! 8mo

Another Agatha Raisin that I inhaled in two nights. In this, Mary Fortune is murdered by being planted in her greenhouse, head and shoulders in dirt. While Agatha and James investigate, they learn a lot about how terrible Mary really was and have to try and narrow down the best possible suspect/s when it seems like everyone has motive. I knew who'd done it (courtesy of my TV series binge), but it didn't matter. Carsely is becoming my happy place!

jmtrivera I haven't tried any Agatha Raisin yet, but I've been considering. I take it you recommend? 3y
LauraBrook @jmtrivera I do! I'd start with the first and see how you like it. It seems like they're mostly between 200-250 pages, which is nice. 3y
LauraBeth Now wondering...if I have to be murdered - would being planted in a greenhouse be my first choice? 🤔🤔 3y

rabbitprincess Interesting murder method! 3y
jmtrivera Nice! I'm convinced! 3y
LauraBrook @LauraBeth Hah! I know. Very unusual, especially since she was tied upright like some horribly demeneted "tree". I'd have to pass on that. ? @rabbitprincess It's the first I've heard of it! @jmtrivera Yay! They're pretty quick reads. And there's one season of a TV series too, so yay for that! 3y
jmtrivera I hadn't heard of the TV series! Bonus yay! 3y
