I read the first (and half of the second) Agatha Raisin book and generally enjoyed it but did not find it super remarkable. The TV series based on the books, though? Absolutely fabulous. My Mom and I watched all the episodes over Christmas break.
The story follows a very successful career woman who decides to take early retirement and move to a quiet English village. But life does not stay quiet…people around the village have a habit of turning up murdered.
There is a great collection of side characters and the show really isn’t afraid to murder-off important ones. I thoroughly enjoyed it and hope they continue to make more episodes.
