My brain needed a break after all that intense reading of Poirot so I turned to an easy read in the form of the twelfth book in M.C. Beaton’s Agatha Raisin series: Agatha Raisin and The Day the Floods Came. One thing led to another and I also quickly demolished books thirteen and fourteen Agatha Raisin and The Curious Curate and Agatha Raisin and the Haunted House.

All three were good easy to read mysteries. Once you’ve read one of these books they all have a very similar pattern and formula but they are readable enough. My favourite of the three was definitely the Haunted House, in fact it’s probably one of the best out of all I’ve read in the series. It had a thicker plot than the others and involved more than just a murder. It was also a really big relief that Agatha had different partners in investigation for these. I don’t miss James, who for some reason featured prominently in most of the eleven previous books and even married Agatha. In conclusion all three of these were enjoyable diversions.

I give Agatha Raisin and the Day the Floods Came 6.5/10, Agatha Raisin and the Curious Curate and Agatha Raisin and the Haunted House 7/10.
