Welcome to the M.C. Beaton Cozy Mystery Challenge hosted by Darlene's Book Nook!
I just finished the first book in the Agatha Raisin series, and I'm hooked! I decided to make a reading challenge out of M.C. Beaton's cozy mysteries!
This challenge will include both the Agatha Raisin series and the Hamish Macbeth series. Because there are so many books, I have decided to make this a Perpetual Reading Challenge, which means that there is no ending date! Take as much time as you need to finish both series!
The books in the Agatha Raisin series are:
And for the enthusiast: The Agatha Raisin Companion
The books in the Hamish Macbeth series are:
11. Death of a Nag
21. Death of a Bore
23. Death of a Maid
25. Death of a Witch
27. Death of a Sweep
Please read below for the challenge guidelines.
