19/series. The perfect cozy series for lovers of off-screen mayhem, the incredibly prolific Beaton serves up another Cotswolds-based adventure. The indominable Agatha Raisin, still looking for romance in all the wrong places, gets involved in a church fete that turns deadly when a parishoner decides she can fly from the top of the steeple. Aided by staff from her detective agency plus several old friends, Agatha can't connect the dots until almost too late. It's a 4. Read these in order if you can; while they're individually entertaining, Agatha's personal history carries from one to the next, so they're not the ideal stand-alone read.
