Cotswolds Cozies: The Agatha Raisin Mysteries

Great post on the Cotswolds, murder mysteries, and Agatha Raisin from friend and fellow author, Emma Jameson.

If you’re an Anglophile eager for an armchair trip to England, the Agatha Raisin Mysteries may be just the ticket. Written by prolific cozy author M. C. Beaton (who also pens romances under her real name, Marion Chesney), the Agatha Raisin cozies exemplify what I consider to be the necessary attributes of the genre:

An enviable location. The Cotswolds region is justifiably famous for its grassland, its golden stone (see the photo above) and its lovely thatched roof cottages. It’s also some of the most expensive and desirable real estate in the world, with home prices sometimes ten times the cost of similar square footage in London. A mere two-bedroom flat can go for as much as half a million pounds–about one million USD. Clearly, reading about Agatha Raisin and life in her charming village is the easiest way to experience life in this part of the UK.

Nutty characters.
