Agatha Raisin and the Haunted House
Agatha Raisin and the Haunted House | M C Beaton
8 posts | 16 read | 6 to read
Agatha Raisin, snug and warm in her Carsley cottage, has that same old feeling-boredom-until a report of a haunted house sends her and new neighbor, handsome Paul Chatterton, to investigate. Suddenly, middle-aged Agatha is aglow with romance and excitement.But the glow fades fast. It turns out Paul is a cad. The victim of the haunting is a universally disliked old biddy. And the ghost is most likely someone playing a dirty trick. Then an old lady is soon found murdered. But never fear! For Agatha, solving a homicide is more fun than hunting a ghost. She quickly has a theory and a risky scheme. And she is about to make a startling discovery which can be her greatest triumph...or leave her heartbroken, in trouble with the police, and in danger of losing her reputation-or her life.

Happy Halloween, Littens! 🎃 Today was a very long day but I got home with just enough time to squeeze in a little haunted house story with my favorite fallible sleuth!

Susannah Wait, are there Agatha Raisin episodes beyond the initial series?! This doesn‘t look familiar. 3w
BlameJennyJane @Susannah yeah, but they‘ve organized it rather strangely. First season was 8 episodes, second was 3 and technically season 3 began on Monday with just the one 98 min episode... like a Halloween special. But I understand Acorn has more in the works! You should check it out! It‘s a fun one! 😁🎃💀 3w
Lynnsoprano There is a tv series??? 3w
BlameJennyJane Indeed, @Lynnsoprano ! It‘s on Acorn (streaming service I get through Amazon Channels... they have a free trial period). Warning though- Agatha is blonde and a bit more Hollywood than the Aggie we know and love. Ashley Jensen is charming in the role though. It‘s a fun. 3w

The characters that feature in the story are very well described so that you get a vivid picture of each of the characters in your mind as your reading the novels, which also helps when you are trying to figure out who did it. The book is fast paced and doesn't move from the main story line like a few murder mystery books do so you end up losing track of what was going on it the story.

This book did make me laugh a fair few times.
There was one chapter in which Agatha sees the lady of the 'haunted' house in a white facemask in the middle of the night and it left me in stitches! Her reaction was priceless.
Fantastic read!
