Review: Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death

Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death
Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death by M.C. Beaton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ THIS WAS AN AUDIOBOOK. Agatha Raisin, 53, has recently retired early from her highly respected Public Relations firm in London, Raisin’s Promotions, and is determined to live out her dream of a more placid existence in the Cotswolds, where she has purchased a thatched roof cottage. This is the dream since childhood that she has finally realized, life in the quiet Cotswolds, nestled in among the bucolic setting of the lush countryside. As a way to become more familiar with her new neighbors she enters a quiche contest expecting to win and thus gain admiration and a measure of fame from the village residents. To Agatha’s dismay things don’t turn out exactly the way she expects, in fact someone turns up dead instead and Agatha’s presumed quiet life in the country turns out to be anything but.
This was my first M.C. Beaton mystery and I enjoyed it so much. I loved the setting and how the author expounds on the British way of life in a small village teeming with quirky, fun characters. Agatha Raisin is no sweet middle-aged woman, she is sharp tongued, dishonest at times, and can be downright mean. This made her character unique and once I adjusted to her personality (she’s no Jessica Fletcher), I began to relax and enjoy the story even more. The audio narrator was fabulous and I am so happy to have come across this audible daily deal because I look forward to many more of Agatha’s antics in this very enjoyable mystery series.
