Agatha Raisin and the Fairies of Fryfam continues the tradition in M. C. Beaton's beloved Agatha Raisin mystery series--now a hit show on Acorn TV and public television.

When a fortune teller from a previous case informs Agatha Raisin that her destiny-and true love-lies in Norfolk, she promptly rents a cottage in the quaint village of Fryfam. No sooner does she arrive than strange things start happening. Random objects go missing from people's homes and odd little lights are seen dancing in the villagers' gardens and yards. Stories soon begin circulating about the presence of fairies.

But when a prominent village resident is found murdered, and some suspicion falls on her and her friend Sir Charles Fraith, Agatha decides she's had enough of this fairy nonsense and steps up her sleuthing for a human killer.

The prickly yet endearing Agatha will have fans dangling in suspense: Will she catch her crook-and a husband?

Agatha Raisin and the Fairies of Fryfam --- by --- M.C. Beaton.
M.C.’s heroine turns snoop (again) to ferret out the perpetrator of the crime. The bodies stack up like so much cord wood as, once again, beats out the inept coppers in snooping out the murderer. The writing involves no gunplay but the sleuthing is exquisite. I’ve fallen love with Beaton’s style. In fact I’ve now exhausted all the print editions in my local library. Must I now submerge myself in the spoken-book versions of Raisin? Better to check the old book stores or the flea markets. Egad: some sleuthing of my own.

It's not easy to take a long-standing character and plop her into a new setting, but it was done seamlessly. Enjoyed seeing Agatha navigate life in another village with a fresh cast of characters.
