Review: The Agatha Raisin Series by MC Beaton

I love Agatha Raisin. I came across this series of light British mysteries one day in the library. They are the perfect read for me for a snowy weekend. Agatha is quite a character – a bit of a cross between Miss Marple and Kinsey Millhone, while still being uniquely herself. I love mysteries – but I don’t like graphic violence. I also am bored by the “perfect” heroine who always seems to be a tough but beautiful cop, who is physically superb and about 32 years old. Agatha is a bit of a grump, middle aged, and at times accused of being “dowdy” (to her horror). She is intelligent, vain, a bit of a man chaser, and a chain smoker. Mysteries and murder seem to find her, and she always gets involved where she shouldn’t. I enjoy her adventures and hope that there are many more to come!
I give this series, which is still in active production, 4 Stars!

Let me know what you think!
