The Agatha Raisin books are very, very light reading, but I have enjoyed every one I have read. Agatha Christies, they are not, however, and I always wish they were at least a little longer.
The fact that Agatha Raisin has a number of human failings that make her a rather unsympathetic character actually adds to the humor of the series, so if you like light mysteries, a bit humorous, nothing horrifying or salacious, why not try one of these stories?
