  1. I discovered Hamish Macbeth and the delights of Agatha Raisin when I was working in my little library on the hill. Sometimes you just need something cosy and comforting – I think of them as grown up Enid Blytons! Have you tried the Tea Shop series by Laura Childs? Or the Needlework Shop series by Monica Ferris? Or the Lucy Stone by Leslie Meier? Or my current favourite, the Jane Austen mysteries by Stephanie Barron? Happy reading! I have just ordered the first Evans from the library….xx

  3. I have just discovered the agatha raisin books courtesy of listening to some stories on the radio (or wireless as I still call it ) and I’m loving them ! have not discovered Evan Evans yet but have been tempted because of this blog as for the delightful Hamish I’m addicted to the DVD s have stayed up till the early hours longing for him and Isobel to get together !

    1. Ooh lucky you still having many of the Agatha Raisin’s left! Robert Carlisle makes the most wonderful Hamish doesn’t he??

  5. Have you tried to Lois Meade mysteries by Ann Purser? Once I’d read all the Agatha Raisin books written so far I moved onto these. Very good and village based again.

    1. No, Janis I have never heard of those, but I’ve gone right ahead and downloaded Murder on a Monday! A million thank-you’s for the recommendation.x

  7. I too am racing through Agatha and Hamish books, costing a fortune on kindle, but worth it. I love the comment above ” Enid Blyton for grown ups”. Sometimes this is just what is needed. Thank you for Rilla of the Lighthouse, darling, predictable and very satisfying. I love it when books work out right. Still not forgiven Laurie for marrying Amy instead of Jo. I am enjoying listening to Anne of Green Gables on Radio 4, so will probably reread, again, the rest of that series. The last four of the Anne books are my most favourite books ever.
