I ADORE the Agatha Raisin series and anyting written MC Beaton in general. Faires of Fryham, however, is BORING. Instead of his usual complex, fully human characters, the characters in Fairies are a collection of the simplest, shallowest stereotypes of what English village characters might be, as written by a person who has never been to England. If this was the first MC Beaton book I'd read, I never would have picked up another of his books.

I recommend Agatha Raisin and the Murderous Marriage.

M.C. Beaton just seems to rush through this book without much though at all. Questions left over from The Witch of Wyckhadden were ignored or not answered until the end of the book, like the Beaton forgot about it until the end of the book. Main chacaters of the book were not used until the very in and rushed in, even Agatha getting married was rushed at the very end of the book. It was like the Beaton started to write this book, and already decided she was bored with it and wanted to hurry it along to start the next one.
Not one of her best by a long shot.

This was the first Agatha Raisin that I ever read - I went on to read all the Agatha Raisin books as well as all of M. C. Beaton's Hamish MacBeth series - so it must be good! They are all quick, fun reads. Beaton gets you as involved with the people as you are with the mystery, so that you read all of them to know how the characters are doing, as well as for the mystery aspect. But the mystery parts are good too. I like books set in England and Scotland, so they are fun for that reason also.

Agatha leaves Carsley and rents a cottage in Fryfam, where she encounters some very strange goings-on. Never one to ignore a mystery, our Mrs. Raisin is soon up to her neck in blackmail and murder.

Tenth Agatha Raisin mystery in which Agatha, once again fleeing Carsely to try to escape the memory of her beloved James who is still away, ventures off to rent a cottage in the little Norfolk village of Fryfam. It's not long before Agatha's out of sorts, a murder has occurred and she's tangled up right in the midst of it. Meanwhile, little mysterious lights keep appearing in her garden, and the neighbors, a superstitious lot, attribute them to "the fairies" since this is such an 'old country' and all. Of course, Agatha's not buying it. A typical, light enjoyable Agatha Raisin book.

Agatha Raisin is at it again! She's annoying, yet all-too-human with all her imperfections and idiosyncrasies. You can't help but laugh as you root for her. M.C. Beaton writes well & has held my interest through the (so far) ten books I've read in this series. I'm looking forward to reading more!

I had just read the previous book in the series about the Witch of Wyckhadden and loved it so much that I decided to read this book straight afterwards, but I wasn't as satisfied with this book. I guess there really is too much of a good thing! I found the mystery itself a little boring and I kept getting all the characters mixed up due to the similarities in their names. The best part of this book was the very last chapter, which honestly surprised me and made my jaw drop. Wow! I am excited to read the next book in the series but I want to pace myself with Agatha Raisin for awhile. :)

Agatha seeks out a fortune teller in hopes of inticing her beloved back to her and moves to the quaint village of Fryfam. As usual a murder occurs and she jumps in to solve it. Very cute!

Great story line. If you love Agatha, you will be enthralled with this one as well as all the others. I like the ending, it was a bit different. As usual, the descriptive writing about the Cotswold countryside and thatched roof cottages makes you want to curl up with a cup of tea and the whole series of these Raisin books.

Great Book. I've been reading all the Agatha books and am about halfway through. She is a funny lady. I think she would make a perfect character for a British detective serries

I enjoyed this. I have read another "Agatha" book and plan to get more in the series. Agatha is quite a character, flawed (aren't we all??, and lots of fun! She and her friend investigate "Murder at the Manor", which is the title of the book that Agatha tells people in Fryfam she is writing. When a murder does occur at the manor, Agatha becomes a suspect so she has to investigate to clear her name.

Feeling jilted, cross and desperate to reclaim James, the love of her life, Agatha Raisin follows a fortune-teller's advice and rents a cottage in the picturesque village of Fryfam, where she hopes good fortune and true love will come chasing after her. Adding a bit of spice to her adventure, she's pronounced to the locals that she's a mystery writer penning a whodunit called MURDER AT THE MANOR. Unfortunately, her romantic notions are quickly dispelled by strange doings here in Fryfam. Whar ARE those strange lights in her back yard? Who is stealing paintings and pottery? Where are her beloved cats? And who murdered the local squire--ironically, at the manor? Agatha's nose for trouble leads her into a hodgepodge of jealousy, blackmail and dangerous liasons and a murderer who plans to keep irrepressible Agatha here in Fryfam permanently, as a resident corpse.
Agatha is a glorious cross between Miss Marple, Auntie Mame, and Lucille Ball, with a tad of pit bull tossed in. She's wonderful!

10th book in the Agatha Raisin series, and she isn't getting any less irritating.

Another great story of Agatha, James, Charles and romance on and off. More murders seem to follow Agatha and her cats are with her too. Suspenseful to the last page.

I am getting very tired of Agatha.....series has lost its appeal for me..I do not think I will be reading any more of her books (unlike Hamish Macbeth, which I love !)

This audio book was read by Donada Peters. She does an awesome job of bringing these hilarious characters to live. Agatha Raisin is a great old gal. I compare this author to Agatha Christie. Highly enjoyable.
