I read more than watch television, but I do love Acorn TV!

Being a fan of M. C. Beaton's Hamish Macbeth series for many years(books and film), I was pleased to learn that her Agatha Raisin series was going to be available to stream on Acorn in August.

I read the book on which the pilot episode is based, The Quiche of Death. (I always like to read the book before the movie.)

I like Agatha Raisin, an older amateur sleuth, who moves from London to the Cotswolds. Although I am partial to Hamish, I can imagine this series will find a place on my recommendation list as well! There are fun characters, and I love the village of Carsely!

I noticed that the episodes in the series are in a different order than the books.

Agatha Raisin is obstinate, blunt, imperfect, vulnerable and ultimately likable. I highly recommend you read this book before reading the rest of the series so you get the background on Agatha's character.

I don't understand the fascination with Agatha Raisin. I found her annoying. She self-sabotages and doesn't seem to learn anything from her previous behaviour. Not what I am looking for in an amateur sleuth.
