Well done, M C Beaton, well done!! This is a super fun beginning of a series I've long ignored for some dumb reason. I love Agatha Raisin. I think I like her and this series better than M C Beaton's other with Hamish Macbeth.
Agatha moves from fast paced London to slow as a turtle pace Cotswolds after selling her very popular public relations firm. She is soon regretting the move, but works through to become accepted by the community. The rest is funny along with a murder or two.....
I HAVE to read the rest of this series!

Ya know, Vickie, I read this approximately 3 years ago and I rated it a 3/5. I literally just realized that it has taken me a good 2-3 years to appreciate "cozy mysteries". I say that because I do have fond memories of it and wonder why I rated it a 3. (Actually, I know - it wasn't a "thriller".) Anyway, I'm glad I have persevered with the genre because I do like them now. :) I want to read more of Agatha Raisin as well.

Joy: It took me a while to find the ones I like. I have sampled various premises of the cozy. I know what I don't like, the ones that seem to be written by people who think they are easy to pen and put out there.
I, too, am glad you persevered in the genre. I couldn't have a steady diet of them, but I do enjoy them for quick reads in my purse and at bedtime.
