Not really my cuppa. Murders follow Agatha wherever she goes and in this book she goes to the cold wintery coast of Wyckhadden. She is escaping James Lacey as she does not want him to see her hair--which she lost in her last mystery. She knows from the start that she has made a mistake with Wyckhadden-everyone at the hotel is an old blue hair! She, being in her fifties is twenty years younger and cannot face the Clever, Funny, British-cozy Number 9 in the Agatha Raisin series, and this is one of my Agatha favorites! She, being in her fifties is twenty years younger and cannot face the thought of getting old, much less their nightly games of Scrabble.
Let's face it, Agatha is terrible at Scrabble and finds it duller than dull.
Agatha Raisin and the Witch of Wyckhadden (Agatha Raisin Mysteries, book 9) by M C Beaton
At the suggestion of a hotel resident, Agatha visits the local "witch" for a hair tonic. And of course, ends up buying love potion as well. After Agatha's visit the witch is murdered and Agatha soon becomes the number one suspect by the local police. I love the brash, obtuse and flawed Agatha, and somehow this storyline was particularly appealing.

Every where she goes, people start dying. View 2 comments. Nov 01, Julie Davis rated it really liked it. Possibly my favorite yet. Agatha is still the same selfish, unsure, pushy person but by contrast with the people of Wyckhadden she is positively normal.

Even though I enjoyed many parts of Witch of Wykckhadden just because I love so many of the characters and they make me laugh while I try to figure out the mystery with them, this one dragged quite a bit in the middle.
The elderly residents at the hotel are just And I kind of miss everybody back home, especially Mrs. Gloomy place, unhappy Aggie. Suits when you're in a teary mood. Not my favorite of series. Men rush over too often, mess up more than help. Aggie repeats problems, calls vicar's wife Mrs Bloxby, departs early to visit her. Agatha Raisin, bald patches from murder-hairdresser in last case, flees Lilac Lane Cotswold cottage for out of season seaside Garden Hotel, managed by Mr Martin. Daisy refers Agatha to "witch" Frances Juddle, who takes umbrage at Aggie's beloved fur coat. Hair tonic and love potion sprouts hairs and attracts police Inspector Jimmy Jessop.

Considering I'm on my 9th book in the series you would think I would give a higher recommendation. The writing is just okay and the mysteries are kind of by the book. But I do like Agatha and the characters that surround her. There is something about an aging, pushy, ex-PR executive that no one likes much that is appealing. Add into to the mix her unrequited love for man next door, the setting in the Cotswolds and a little death and mayhem and it makes for great light reading. This book had Agat Considering I'm on my 9th book in the series you would think I would give a higher recommendation.
This book had Agatha retreating to the sea coast for a bit of a break after her last adventure. There she meets some retirees that live at the hotel who are eccentric and make Agatha seem less fish out of water than usual. Of course when the local "witch" fortune teller dies on the day Agatha visits her a mystery is started. Nov 06, Andrew rated it really liked it. This was one of the more enjoyable books in this series. These are always quick reads and usually have a good mystery behind them. Whilst I wouldn't say I like the main character I don't think you are meant to she does get herself into some humorous scrapes but always somehow comes out working out who the killer is.

When her prized fur coat is vandalized one evening Agatha immediately suspects the witch and rushes over to her house to accuse her only to find her murdered in her bed, her head bashed in. Agatha soon becomes embroiled in another murder case. This time she is on her own dealing with the amorous attentions of the police inspector and the odd cast of characters at the hotel.
While innocent on the surface as Agatha digs deeper they take on more sinister qualities. Another body washes up on shore, Agatha's love life becomes more tangled and complicated a raging blizzard cuts power and communications and strands people in place all giving the book an old fashioned Agatha Christie feel to it. Like the previous book this one leads right into the next book in the series which I'm excited to read soon. Dec 01, Denise rated it liked it Shelves: reads.
