Welcome to my little Niche within the library. So grab a coffee and let's review some books. The Quiche of Death (Agatha Raisin, #1)The Quiche of Death by M.C. Beaton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Retired Public Relations, Agatha Raisin, has bought herself a cottage in the Cotswolds. Since she was a little girl she loved the Cotswolds. Now she has finally bought herself a cottage in Carlsey and getting to realize her childhood dream of living in the picturesque villages of Cotswolds.

When Agatha discovers that there is a Quiche Competition in Carlsey, she enters it hoping to win it and gain the admiration of her neighbours; but when someone dies after eating a slice of said quiche, Agatha is involved in a murder investigation. In the style of Agatha Christie's Marple, Agatha Raisin takes it upon herself to solve this murder mystery and clear her name.

I enjoyed this book very much. It made me laugh in places. The story takes place in my own neck of the woods, which added to its charms. I will be definitely reading more of this author and more Agatha Raisin books. Written by a prolific author, Marion Chesney, from Glasgow, this series of mystery novels (22 in the series) is quite a page-turner. Just like Agatha Raisin, the author has a cottage in the Cotswolds.
