M. C. Beaton...her name should be familiar to you. This prolific British author has written not one, but two extensive outstanding series, the Agatha Raisin Mysteries and the Hamish MacBeth series. I love them both.❤️❤️❤️
Pushing Up Daisies is Ms Beaton's latest in the fabulous Agatha Raisin Mystery Series.
Agatha Raisin, a London high powered public relations maven, retires to the idyllic Cotswolds village of Carsely for a calmer, more contented life in a beautiful little cottage with her two cats. She soon becomes bored and opens a little detective agency. At first she found lost pets. Soon she is knee-deep in murders and danger.
In thus twenty-seventh Agatha adventure, a wealthy Lord wants to the community garden into a housing development, which does not sit well with the village residents. Someone ends up dead.
Agatha has been described as a "Miss Maple who enjoys drinks, cigarettes, and men" (from the back cover.) She is described in the book as a classy mature woman with black hair, brown eye, and great legs. The description reminded me of Angelina Huston.
If you read one Agatha Raisin mystery, you'll be back for more. I love this author. She is a sweet, fun lady born in Scotland with a real knack for pulling you into the story. Try her, I know you'll love her, too.
