There is nothing more depressing for a middle-aged lovelorn woman with bald patches on her head than to find herself in an English seaside resort out of season. Agatha Raisin, her hair falling out after a run-in with a hairdresser-cum-murderess from a previous investigation, travels to an old-fashioned hotel in order to repair the damage away from the neighbors in her all-too-cozy Cotswolds village. Unhappy about the slow results and prompted by the elderly residents of the resort, she consults the local witch for help. Agatha purchases a hair tonic (and a love potion, just in case!) and is soon sprouting hairs and capturing the fancy of the village police inspector. But the quiet town is stunned by the murder of the witch. Which one of the graying guests is capable of such a brutal crime? The brassy yet endearing Agatha won't stop until she finds the culprit--and, of course, a little love, too.… (mais)

Agatha goes to the seaside to regrow her hair away from James Lacy and finds herself caught up in the murder of a local witch and her daughter. Sir Charles makes an appearance while James and Mrs Bloxly are back in Carsley. Lots of bumbling from Agatha as usual and loads of fun. ( )

Agatha and the Hair Tonic
Review of the Blackstone Audio Inc. audiobook edition (December 2012) of the original St. Martin's Press Minotaur hardcover (November 1999)

The Witch of Wyckhadden finds Agatha Raisin retreating to a resort after losing her hair in the confrontation at the climax of her previous investigation. She starts a liaison with a local policeman while also consulting a local homeopath for both a hair tonic and a love potion. That local "witch" is subsequently murdered and the game is again afoot for Agatha. Sir Charles Fraith joins the hunt and again interferes with Agatha's love life.

Most (28 of 32) of the Agatha Raisin audiobooks are free on Audible Plus. A posthumous Book 32 Down the Hatch is yet to be released, and is expected to be published in October 2021.

The Witch of Wyckhadden was adapted as Episode 7 of Series 1 for the currently ongoing Agatha Raisin TV series (2016-). A trailer can be seen on YouTube here. ( )

I love these books. I don't know what It is about them. Maybe that Agatha was a major force in her field of work but she pretty much bumbles around in her personal life or maybe its just that she is so ridiculous sometimes. Not sure. This book starts off with the ridiculous. She is basically bald due to the revenge of a murder suspect in the last book so she runs off to hide in a seaside village until her hair grows back in. Of course she meets a group of eccentric characters who all have motive for the murder she is suspected of committing. This was a crazy installment. Highly enjoyable, lots of fun, and definitely worth a read whether you've read any of these before or not. ( )

Agatha seems like a strong person in most books but showed huge signs of weakness in this one, resorting to witchcraft for romantic reasons and jumping headfirst into a situation (which I won’t say for fear of spoilers) with far too short a timeframe for common sense. I liked her initially because she was grumpy and pushy, I’m not sure I like this weakness which isn’t seemingly coming from genuine vulnerability. ( )

Agatha is one of the fluff stories that I read (to clear the head). But this one I just finished ended very badly because I almost could not stand Agatha as a character any longer. Mistakes are one thing, but she went too far with the cavalier attitudes toward bed-hopping this time. It damaged how much I care about her as a character. She'll get another chance from me, eventually, but I don't foresee it happening any time soon. ( )
