Read Agatha Raisin and the Witches' Tree (Agatha Raisin #28) Online Free - The Witches’ Tree continues the tradition in M. C. Beaton's beloved Agatha Raisin mystery series―now a hit T.V. show.
Cotswolds inhabitants are used to inclement weather, but the night sky is especially foggy as Rory and Molly Devere, the new vicar and his wife, drive slowly home from a dinner party in their village of Sumpton Harcourt. They strain to see the road ahead―and then suddenly brake, screeching to a halt. Right in front of them, aglow in the headlights, a body hangs from a gnarled tree at the edge of town. Margaret Darby, an elderly spinster, has been murdered―and the villagers are bewildered as to who would commit such a crime.
Agatha Raisin rises to the occasion (a little glad for the excitement, to tell the truth, after a long run of lost cats and divorces on the books). But Sumpton Harcourt is a small and private village, she finds―a place that poses more questions than answers. And when two more murders follow the first, Agatha begins to fear for her reputation―and even her life. That the village has its own coven of witches certainly doesn't make her feel any better...

Now very definitely in the autumn of her career, Cotswold based private detective Agatha Raisin whose years seems to decrease with each consecutive appearance, returns at the age of fifty-three in a monumentally disappointing twenty-eighth outing. Given that the cosy crime capers of Agatha and he...

I remember a time when I eagerly devoured every Agatha Raisin story. I delighted in Aggie's abrasiveness, in the villagers' eccentricities, and in the ludicrously daft situations the characters found themselves in. It added up to intriguing, uncomplicated entertainment.
Sadly, that's not the case...

*3.5 stars rounded up.
I read the last two Agatha Raisin books (#27 and 28) back-to-back and they did not suffer from doing that, although I kept looking for characters introduced in the previous book to reappear.
This story does take place immediately after #27--it is now late fall and the story...

Okay, here’s my confession…
I want Agatha and Charles to get married and have a Happily Ever After.
I loved this latest entry in the Agatha Raisin series. The Witches Tree has a great mystery, some truly devious crimes, and it’s just pure fun.
Agatha is maturing. She’s still Agatha (no worries), bu...

Another little caper with my old friend Agatha. I do wish there were a little progress in the characters' personal lives after 28 books, but all in all, I enjoyed it.

My thanks to Netgalley and the Publisher for an opportunity to read an advanced copy of this book.
After the last book, ‘Pushing up Daisies’, I had hoped that MC Beaton has turned a corner and her Agatha Raisin series would get back to what they had previous been with multiple story lines that bou...

A character in this book moved to the Cotswolds solely because he wanted the Agatha Christie experience. It's really the Jane Marple experience of village life and he was trying to experience that. I realized that is one of the reasons I like this series so much. I too want to live in a little vi...

Well, what can I say - not up to the expected standard. The sentences were short, the story jumped from one thing to another - one minute someone was dead, and then he wasn't. Names of people had changed, and the continuity was all out of sync. I felt the story needed bulking out and I was readin...

Although I have enjoyed this series for all of the previous books, I felt this story line lacked something. In addition, the back and forth between Agatha and Charles seemed a bit pathetic instead of fun. The mystery involved murders occurring in a small, gloomy Cotswold town with a witches' cove...

This is one of my few remaining light-reading series. I haven’t found it objectionably disappointing and deserted it deep into the series, like I have a bunch of others. And it’s one of the exceptions to 3-stars reflecting that I would have been happier reading something else, or at least that my...
