Putting all her eggs in one basket, Agatha Raisin gives up her successful public-relations firm, sells her London flat, and samples a taste of early retirement in the quiet village of Carsely. Bored, lonely, and used to getting her way, she enters a local baking contest—surely a blue ribbon for the best quiche will make her the toast of the town. But her recipe for social advancement sours when Judge Cummings-Browne not only snubs her entry but falls over dead! After her quiche’s secret ingredient turns out to be poison, she must reveal the unsavory truth.

Agatha has never baked a thing in her life! In fact, she bought her entry ready-made from an upper-crust London quicherie. Grating on the nerves of several Carsely residents, she is soon receiving sinister notes. Has her cheating and meddling landed her in hot water, or are the threats related to the suspicious death? It may mean the difference between egg on her face and a coroner’s tag on her toe.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The strong narrative drive comes from Agatha’s changing personality as awkward and perilous situations shape her into a softer, more admirable person.”

    Chicago Sun-Times

  • “Beaton, always deft with imperfect human beings, guides Agatha through her travails until she becomes almost likable. You will want to see her again.”

    Houston Post

  • “In Agatha, Beaton has blended perfectly the classic ingredients of a village with secrets and stock characters. The irascible but endearing personality of Agatha Raisin is like a heady dash of curry. May we have another serving, please?”

    Detroit Free Press

  • “Beaton has thus launched a new series featuring an eccentric sleuth with human foibles galore, combined with an indomitable spirit, who will long persevere and endear herself to the village (and the reader).”

    San Antonio Express-News

  • “A hilarious, up-to-the-minute murder romp that’s as delicious as a Christmas pudding.”

    St. Petersburg Times

  • “In this highly promising launch to a new mystery series, Beaton…introduce[s] the redoubtable Agatha Raisin…whose personality is a piquant combination of brusque competence and fallibility…Beaton’s playful depiction of village life makes it all a delicious romp.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “The cozy British mystery gets a feisty new sleuth in the person of Agatha Raisin…Beaton spices up the story with so many delightful characters that whodunit hardly matters. Agatha herself is an irascible, testy tyrant who is as cranky as the rest of us would like to be. Still, she’s not completely stodgy; she does have an eye for the gentlemen. With a handsome neighbor moving next door in the book’s last few pages, it seems clear there’s more of Agatha to come.”
