Agatha Raisin and the Wellspring of Death (Agatha Raisin #7) by M.C. Beaton

Agatha Raisin’s neighbouring village of Ancombe is usually the epitome of quiet rural charm, but the arrival of a new mineral-water company – which intends to tap into the village spring – sends tempers flaring and divides the parish council into two stubborn camps. 

When Agatha, who just happens to be handling the PR for the water company, finds the council chairman murdered at the basin of the spring, tongues start wagging. Could one of the council members have polished off the chairman before he could cast the deciding vote? 

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Agatha Raisin and the Wellspring of Death by M.C. Beaton

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love this series so much. Still laughing over this one.

I listened to the audiobook version, narrated by Penelope Keith, always great.

I’d recommend this series to anyone looking for a light-hearted, good time.

The Story
Water rights, the environment, an internal will to adapt a healthier lifestyle, and of course, the pursuit of love, the timeless subject matter paired with topics relevant to today even though it was written over 20 years ago, that being in 1998.


As Agatha Raisin mills around the village as her merry self, I appreciated the tension and predicament straightaway, making for an inviting lead to both the community and personal battles. I loved how the author consistently brought all people and circumstances into such a tight, adventurous plot.


The Writing
I loved the transitions from back story to the dialogue scenes.

This has become one of my all-time favorite book series.

My Favorite Lines
“The world is one planet full of tourists… or displaced people.”

“Did anyone ever age gracefully? Or was it a choice of giving up or going down fighting?”
