The Agatha Raisin series

The Agatha Raisin Companion

M.C. Beaton

To commemorate twenty years of Agatha Raisin - a celebration of the woman, her escapades and all the other characters in Carsely!
This book is a celebration of all things Agatha Raisin. It includes an introduction by M C Beaton, Agatha's biography, her background and retirement to the Cotswolds, her complex love life and the details of village life in Carsely.

There are brief biogs of all the men in her life (there are many), a piece on her cats Hodge and Boswell, and a section on Agatha's Cotswolds, both real and fictitious. Plot summaries of all twenty titles in the series, a quiz to test your Agatha knowledge and a selection of her favourite dishes in Raisin's Recipes rounds off the complete Agatha Companion.

It also features line drawings by Alice Tait - the artist of the all new covers in the Agatha Raisin series - throughout.

Thanks for the great agatha raisin books, best read Ive had in ages, my daughter loves them too. I'm still trying to get her to try a Hamish Macbeth book as I'm certain she'll love those too

Agatha is so easy to empathise with because she is not perfect and neither are the men in her life. I love her tart remarks. She says the things I want to say but I do not always have the courage.

I love Agatha she does all the things I would love to do. We are the same age. I would love to live in a little English cottage.

I love reading your Agatha Raisin books. She gets herself into incredible messes. I also enjoy the Hamish MacBeth stories, too.
