AS THE PIG TURNS: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED 
AS THE PIG TURNS 
An Agatha Raisin Mystery
BY M. C. BEATON

ABOUT THE BOOK:
This little piggy went to investigate…

After a disappointing Christmas season, the touristy Cotswold town of Winter Parva is upping the stakes with an old-fashioned pig roast, complete with music, merriment, and medieval Morris-dancing. Always one for a good roasting, Agatha Raisin is looking forward to the event, especially after a heated dispute over a traffic ticket has her picturing a certain boorish cop turning on the spit. But when the big night arrives—and the smoke clears—Agatha notices that the slow-roasting “pig” has a tattoo with the name Amy on it. It’s the body of the policeman who had Agatha all fired up. And now his ex-wife Amy wants her to find the butcher who did the deed—and solve a murder that’s disturbingly well done...

PRAISE FOR AS THE PIG TURNS:
“It’s been said of Agatha Christie that she’s given more pleasure in bed than any other woman, but M.C. Beaton is matching her as a prolific purveyor of cosy whodunits perfect for pre-lights out reading…like Midsomer Murders with wit and a bit of edge.”—The Daily Telegraph (UK)

“Hilarious…Beaton's legion of fans will most definitely enjoy her latest Agatha Raisin mystery, As the Pig Turns. Newcomers to the series will be pleasantly surprised by this unique cozy.” —Gumshoe Reviews

“Beaton has a winner in the irrepressible, romance-hungry Agatha.”—Chicago Sun-Times

“Few things in life are more satisfying than to discover a brand-new Agatha Raisin mystery.”—Tampa Tribune Times 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
M. C. BEATON is the pen name of Marion Chesney, known primarily for the more than 100 historical romance novels she has published under her own name and under several pseudonyms: Helen Crampton, Ann Fairfax, Jennie Tremaine, and Charlotte Ward. M.C. Beaton is the pseudonym she reserves for her New York Times bestselling Agatha Raisin mysteries, and her Hamish Macbeth series. Born in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1936, Marion Chesney has worked as a fiction buyer for a bookseller, as women's fashion magazine editor, and as a reporter and theater critic. Like her amateur sleuth Agatha Raisin, Chesney lives in a cottage in the English Cotswolds.

I am a big Agatha fan! I find people either really like her or they don't!

This one sounds like Agatha is getting even more hilarious. I've only recently discovered these and love them almost as much as Hamish MacBeth series.

I thought about the ironic term of "pig". Haven't thought of that meaning in many years.
