Witch of Wyckhadden – Agatha Raisin #9 – Book Review #36

Witch of Wyckhadden


I started reading the Agatha Rasin series last year after watching Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death on TV.
Luckily, the first 20 books were donated to the charity shop where I volunteer so I bought them all!

Ant started reading them after me then finished the series before I did! I got a bit bored after reading book 7. I read book 8 then decided to take a break.
They’re nice, easy reads but they’re all a bit samey. Taking a break was good for me. I enjoyed this one more than I would have if I’d carried on with the series.

In the Witch of Wyckhadden, Agatha has gone to a hotel to get away from everyone while her hair grows back. In the previous book, she fell foul of a hairdresser who turned out to be a murderer and she had hair remover put on her head instead of shampoo.

She was told of a local witch who could supply her with a hair tonic to help her hair grow back faster. Agatha visited the witch and left with the hair tonic and a love potion!

For those who don’t know, Agatha is an amateur detective and wherever she goes,  murder inevitably happens.
The witch is found dead the same day Agatha had visited which means Agatha must investigate and find the murderer!

As I said, it’s a light, easy to read book and I needed something light after my recent book choices.

    These sound entertaining and might be worth a read for a bit of light relief. They sound similar to No1 Ladies Detective Agency series. I would definitely have to take a break and not read the whole series in one go! I read all of the Millennium Trilogy and Hunger Games trilogy back to back, but don’t think I could manage more than three consecutive books at a time!

    I’ve not heard of this one before, not sure I could read the whole series but I’d definitely give it a go #readwithme
