Village Green Mysteries
M.C. Beaton (1936-2019) was the author of both the Agatha Raisin and Hamish Macbeth series, as well as numerous Regency romances. Her books have been translated into seventeen languages and have sold more than twenty-one million copies worldwide. She is consistently the most borrowed UK adult author in British libraries, and her Agatha Raisin books have been turned into a TV series on Sky.
Beaton's dry sense of humour and her unflattering but affectionate portrait of gruff, often adolescent-acting Agatha makes this . . . a bloom worth plucking. - Publishers WeeklySharp, witty, hugely intelligent, unfailingly entertaining. . . M C Beaton has created a national treasure. - Anne RobinsonIt's been said of Agatha Christie that she's given more pleasure in bed than any other woman, but M.C. Beaton is matching her as a prolific purveyor of cosy whodunits perfect for pre-lights out reading ... like Midsummer Murders but with wit and a bit of edge.' - Telegraph on Sunday
