Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Beaton’s dry sense of humor and her unflattering but affectionate portrait of gruff, often adolescent-acting Agatha make this…a bloom worth plucking.” Publishers Weekly 
“Beaton captures perfectly the tenor of life in a quiet, quaint English village; the Miss Marple–like Raisin is a refreshingly sensible, wonderfully eccentric, thoroughly likable heroine; and the latest Raisin escapade is lively, funny, and entertaining. A must.” Booklist
