Agatha Raisin

Okay, so just finished Busy Body by M.C. Beaton.  Well… the plot was thin, the ending implausible and some of the dialogue was just not good.

 

But I liked it.

And I’ll read more.

 

Why????

Because if you create a character as good as Agatha Raisin I really don’t care how good the rest of your book is.   She can carry anything on those reportedly “good legs.”  And she carried this one, too.  She’s remarkably human… irritating, manipulative, transparent.  She’s also shrewd, smart and unafraid to take a risk.

Are there any characters you’ve come across that are greater than their parts? What is it about them that is so captivating?
