This week features a book from one of my favorite long-running mystery series. I first discovered M.C. Beaton in the Hamish Macbeth series which began with Death of a Gossip in 1985. Her first Agatha Raisin book was Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death published in 1992. After reading the first book, I wasn’t sure if I liked Agatha or not. She can take a bit of getting used to. But I enjoyed the book enough to give the next one a try with the result that Agatha and the series were soon great favorites of mine. Something Borrowed, Someone Dead is the 24th Agatha Raisin book.
Something Borrowed, Someone Dead
by M. C. Beaton
She could not afford to investigate any case where she could not earn any money.
At the week-end, she was morosely looking at her garden, feeling that she should try to weed some of the flowerbeds, and deciding to sit down and have a gin and tonic and a cigarette instead, when her doorbell rang.
Have you read any of Beaton’s books? What are you reading now? Do you have a TT to share with us?
