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 entry, but 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.… (més)

What a treat! I love the Acorn TV series, so I never got around to reading Ms. Beaton until now. Boy have I ever missed out! I gobbled this down despite holiday activities and other interruptions (lol).

So droll, so intelligent, so hilarious, just brilliantly done. Can't wait to go plowing my way through ALL of them! ( )

I can't explain why I like this so much except that it's everything I need right now. Total escapism into a "Murder, She Wrote" world with a surly, British Jessica Fletcher. I listened to the audiobooks on vacation last week and was happy. ( )

I’ve always wanted to dip into the world of Agatha Raisin, but never had the time. When I saw Penelope Keith narrates most of the series, I opted to listen to them. Not the best writing, but these are purely entertainment and the performance was perfect. Easy reading, dated in parts regarding social views (but that’s fine and the author wrote the first book in 70s). Although predictable, there’s something about Agatha’s sharp personality that’s difficult not to love. Possibly, those who love the books would like to be her, if only occasionally. ( )

I don’t normally like cozy’s but this was a fun quick read. I will probably give the series another go. My rating is more like a 3.5. ( )

“I thought your being here had something to do with Divine Providence.”

Having everything you ever dreamed up isn’t all you thought it would be or so Agatha Raisin finds out almost immediately after she closes up her very successful pr business in London and retired to the country. Boredom immediately sets in and while trying to ingratiate herself with the locals a murder occurs which puts her in the limelight in the worst possible way. And so Agatha embarks on a new course...and a new life. ( )

Mrs. Agatha Raisin sat behind her newly cleared desk in her office in South Molton Street in London's Mayfair. From the outer office came the hum of voices and the clink of glasses as the staff prepared to say farewell to her.
