Unfortunately, I cannot read "Blood of an Englishman" on my Kindle. The M. C. Beaton Agatha Raisin series [and her Hamish McBeth series] have ALL been available in eBook format for the Kindle. This ONE book, of ALL her books; is an eBook via EPUB only. Not sure why -but disappointing, as I have been a fan of these books, am nearing the end - and this will be the only one I will have missed.

What an absolute hoot! and to think I found this book/series simply by wandering among the shelves at Walker. I'm going to start at the beginning and read all the rest of them. Plus I hear there's a PBS series about Agatha Raisin - I'll have to buy a TV!
Wonderful stories, incredible writing skills, funny & a whodunit to boot!
I am in love with Agatha Raisin!

this mc beaton series was more intelligent and suspenseful - I read in two sittings.

The Blood of an Englishman --- by --- M.C. Beaton.
M.C. has really gotten under my skin. My fear is that it would be so easy to tear through her novels that within days or perhaps a few weeks, there would be nothing left of her stories of Hamish Macbeth or Agatha Raisin to look forward to. But fortunately M.C. has been quite prolific as a writer and I’ve taken the precaution of rationing out her books to no more than one or two per month. That ought to make them last.
You can tell I’m a fan.
Her characters are quite engaging; the plots keep you guessing --- what’s not to like?

Agatha has not evolved. This book was bad. No more for me.

I really loved the first books in the Agatha Raisin series. I keep reading hoping they will get better. This one, and the last few for that matter, are so boring I can't wait to get to end just so I don't have to read anymore. The characters never grow, I think the author has lost interest in Agatha and frankly I have also. No more Agatha for me.

Priceless! MC Beaton's Agatha at the top of her game.
