We all have characters we love. Let's spotlight these fantastic creations! Whether you want to be friends with them or you have a full-blown crush on them, you know you love them and want everyone else to love them too!Today's character is Agatha Raisin, from the cozy mystery series of the same name by M.C. Beaton. The first in the series is Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death.
Most of you will probably post about how much you love each character, but this is a great place for the more creative ones among you to let go and have fun! Write a love letter to Captain Wentworth. Write yourself into a scene with Anne and Diana. Draw a picture of yourself in Jamie's arms. The possibilities are endless.
Be sure to post the book's title and author, and be very careful not to give away spoilers while talking about how much you love your characters.
Mr. Linky will be posted here on The Introverted Reader every Thursday.
At the beginning of the first book, she owns a fabulous Public Relations firm in London that she built from the ground up. She's survived a horrible marriage and come out of it a stronger woman. Now that she's a little older, she realizes that she's not entirely happy. She's busybusybusy with work all the time and doesn't really have any friends, much less any men in her life. She makes the momentous decision to sell the firm and retire to a little village in the Cotswolds.
You can imagine what her love life is like. She scares men away all the time. She's scared to let herself get too close to a man, so she pushes away anyone who makes the effort to get close to her.
Her personality is exactly right for an amateur detective, so she sort of finds her place when there's a murder in the village. She starts investigating and her tenacity leads her into places the police can't or won't go. She generally manages to irritate the people that she's questioning so much that they sometimes say more than they intend to. Of course the police resent her efforts to help, but that doesn't deter our Agatha.
