Journal Entry 1 by WigglyWoods from Chorley, Lancashire United Kingdom on Sunday, December 14, 2008
High flying public relations supremo Agatha Raisin has decided to take early retirement. She's off to make a new life in a picture-perfect Cotswold village. To make friends, she enters the local quiche-making competition - and to make quite sure of first prize she secretly pays a visit to a London deli. But alas, the competition judge succumbs after tasting her perfect quicke, and Agatha is revealed as a cheat and potential poisoner. Definitely not the best start. So Agatha must turn amateur sleuth - she's absolutely got to track down the real killer!

Journal Entry 8 by NMReader from Herndon, Virginia USA on Saturday, March 28, 2009
I read Perfect Paragon previously and loved the Agatha Raisin character.

This is the first in the series and I loved it. It was interesting to learn the start of how Agatha came to the detective trade.

I like Bill and I think I shall grow to like James Lacey

Journal Entry 13 by Bug2004 from Omaha, Nebraska USA on Sunday, September 20, 2009
Indeed a quick, fun, cozy read. Nothing terribly special, just light and easy. Not sure whether I like Agatha or not at this point, but I love the little village and the goofy characters along the way.

My sincere apologies for holding it so long. Off tmrrw!

Journal Entry 14 by sunfi from Alexandria, Virginia USA on Tuesday, October 27, 2009
Arrived safe and sound in Ohio today along with 3 other bookrings. I'll get to this as soon as I can. I keep my profile updated (weekly) so you can always see how close this is to the top of the TBR listing. Thanks for including me and to bug2004 for mailing this to me.

Journal Entry 15 by sunfi from Alexandria, Virginia USA on Friday, November 20, 2009
It was okay, I really don't like Agatha but I do like her village and some of the characters in it. I'll get this on its way before Thanksgiving along with VIcious Vet.

I've been reading some rather serious books lately, so this was a fun change. I'm looking forward to the rest in the series.

Once I've read The Vicious Vet, I'll be sending them both on.

Journal Entry 20 by Tinina67 from Seissan, Midi-Pyrénées France on Thursday, April 22, 2010
The first book of the Agatha Raisin book spiral. I am already half through the book. Agatha rocks. ;-)

Journal Entry 21 by Tinina67 from Seissan, Midi-Pyrénées France on Thursday, April 29, 2010
I really love Agatha - she is an unlikely hero: insecure, socially awkward, rude and middle-aged, but that makes her much more likable than other super detectives. Great!

On its way to the next on the list.

Journal Entry 22 by FrancesinSA on Tuesday, May 11, 2010
YAY! this book arrived today, with Agatha Raisin and the Vicious Vet. I have really been looking forward to reading this. Thank you Tinina67 for the nice bookmark.

Journal Entry 23 by FrancesinSA on Thursday, May 13, 2010
I really enjoyed this first book in the series and have already started reading book #2. Agatha isn't a very nice person but that's what makes her a believable character. I'm hooked and look forward to reading the other books in the series.

ETA: I have received no response to my PM's sent to Bookwormteacher, requesting her postal address.

Journal Entry 27 by TiffanyAching at Burntisland, Scotland United Kingdom on Monday, July 19, 2010
I loved this book, it had all the essence of the English countryside with a dash of comedy crime capers.

can't wait to read the others, or though I do feel like I have to eat victoria sponge and drink lots of tea while reading them.

Journal Entry 28 by wingCassandra2020wing at Roslin, Scotland United Kingdom on Wednesday, December 10, 2014
Hmm. I picked this up from TiffanyAching on Sunday, but looking at the journals, it appears to be part of an old book spiral. As I've already read it, I'll see if I can find out where it should be and get it moving again.

At last I had a chance to read the first introduction to Agatha. From the bitch in London to a more sociable person in a Cotswold village.

Thank you for sending me this one. I know a lot of other bookcrossers really enjoy this series, so I am happy to read this one. It is my first.

Updated July 23, 2018

This is a good fun read. The villagers are quirky and interesting and I like that Agatha has a personality and is a bit rough on the edges. I can see why this series is popular and would definitely want to read more.
