"Tourists are advised to watch their backs in the bucolic villages where M. C. Beaton sets her sly British mysteries...Outsiders always spell trouble for the societies Beaton observes with such cynical humor." --The New York Times Book Review

"[Beaton's] imperfect heroine is an absolute gem!" --Publishers Weekly

"Beaton's Agatha Raisin series just about defines the British cozy." --Booklist

"Anyone interested in...intelligent, amusing reading will want to make the acquaintance of Mrs. Agatha Raisin." --Atlanta Journal Constitution

"Beaton has a winner in the irrepressible, romance-hungry Agatha." --Chicago Sun-Times

"Few things in life are more satisfying than to discover a brand-new Agatha Raisin mystery." --Tampa Tribune Times

"The Raisin series brings the cozy tradition back to life. God bless the Queen!" --Tulsa World

"The Miss Marple-like Raisin is a refreshingly sensible, wonderfully eccentric, thoroughly likable heroine...a must for cozy fans." --Booklist

"Agatha is like Miss Marple with a drinking problem, pack-a-day habit, and major man lust...Beaton's latest installment, in which Aggie gets mixed up in a deadly jam-tasting contest, is pretty terrific--a must-read." --Entertainment Weekly on A SPOONFUL OF POISON

"Take two fine old English traditions--the village fete and death by poison--and you have a clever tale...featuring irascible, lovable Agatha Raisin. A Spoonful of Poison will go down just fine." --Richmond Times-Dispatch on A SPOONFUL OF POISON

"Beaton's sly humor enhances the cozy-style plotting, while updates on Agatha's...romantic travails are as delightful as ever. The open-ended resolution points to more madcap mayhem to come." --Publishers Weekly on A SPOONFUL OF POISON

"British cozy fans will no doubt find this book an engaging teatime companion." --Booklist on THE WALKERS OF DEMBLEY

"Trenchant and droll." --St. Petersburg Times on THE WALKERS OF DEMBLEY

"Among writers of cozy village mystery series, count M.C. Beaton as one who creates a nice tea party." --Associated Press on THE WALKERS OF DEMBLEY

"From the author's sure-fire plot comes this fail-safe moral: It takes an outsider to open people's eyes to the beauty--and the evil--within." --The New York Times Book Review on THE POTTED GARDENER

"Compare this one to lemon meringue pie: light. . .with a delicious hint of tartness at its heart." --The Washington Times on THE POTTED GARDENER

"Agatha Raisin is still at the top of her her most challenging case yet." --Publishers Weekly on KISSING CHRISTMAS GOODBYE

"Beaton, the reigning queen of the cozies, adds an English manor house and a Christmas theme to her usual Costwold village setting, upping the comfiness factor even higher." --Booklist on KISSING CHRISTMAS GOODBYE

"Another highly satisfying Beaton cozy, this one is long on the kind of social comedy that uses character, plot, and atmosphere to produce the laughter." --Booklist on LOVE, LIES AND LIQUOR

"Driven by Agatha's strong personality, [Love, Lies and Liquor] will please devoted fans." --Publishers Weekly on LOVE, LIES AND LIQUOR

"Though Agatha is still a bit of a piece of work, she is mellowing with age, and in this book even forgets to 'gussy' herself up once when she goes out. There's a cliffhanger at the end...that is going to be interesting in the next book." --Deadly Pleasures on THE PERFECT PARAGON

"This is the latest perfectly precious prose problem from Beaton, Britain's successor to Dame Agatha Christie. If you've never read an Agatha Raisin novel, it's time to start, and you'll have fifteen more of these confections awaiting you. Polish those off, and you still have a batch of Hamish Macbeth tales. All of them are cunningly plotted, beautifully written and more fun you can imagine. The Perfect Paragon is as perfect as all the others, and you won't figure out whodunit until the final pages." --The Globe & Mail on THE PERFECT PARAGON

"Entertaining...welcome back to Carsely, the charming Cotswolds village that's home to the sixteenth Agatha Raisin mystery." --Publishers Weekly on THE PERFECT PARAGON

"Fabulous...M.C. Beaton is at her best with this fine tale filled with twists." --Midwest Book Review on THE PERFECT PARAGON

"It's been 40 years since Dame Agatha Christie's death, and in that time, reviewers have often bestowed her mantle on new authors. M. C. Beaton is one of those so honored, and she deserves it. When it comes to artfully constructed puzzle plots and charming settings, Beaton serves it up...This is a classic British cozy plot, and a setting done with panache. Maybe M. C. Beaton really is the new 'Queen of Crime.'" --The Globe & Mail on THE DEADLY DANCE

"It is always fun to read an Agatha Raisin mystery, but the latest installment freshens up a delightful series by converting the heroine from amateur sleuth to professional without changing her caustic wit. Agatha remains crude and rude even to clients, but also retains that vulnerability that endears her to readers." --Midwest Book Review on THE DEADLY DANCE

"A very satisfying change for the smart woman of mystery with a new cast of colorfully realized characters blending with a few old favorites." --Mystery Lovers Bookshop News on THE DEADLY DANCE

"The story was first-rate and moved along with many twists and turns that kept me always guessing...I read this book in one sitting, which I think speaks for itself." --I Love a Mystery on THE DEADLY DANCE

"Fans of Agatha Raisin will be absolutely delighted at this latest addition to the series. Ms. Beaton has surpassed herself in The Deadly Dance." --Reviewing the Evidence on THE DEADLY DANCE

"Splendid." --Publishers Weekly

"A riot. Fans, old and new, will be delighted." --RT Book Reviews

"As a longtime fan of M. C. Beaton --- and Agatha Raisin in particular --- I have to say that THERE GOES THE BRIDE really is one of the most fun novels in the series. As always, there are the expected twists, turns and close calls as Agatha plunges ever forward to solve the crime. In addition, Beaton includes priceless moments regarding Agatha's personal life --- laugh-out-loud moments that only a character like Agatha can engender. Pick this one up now! You won't be disappointed."
