M.C. Beaton Message Board

David posts on 7/15/2007 2:12:12 PM MC Beaton is not only a woman she is many women and has written at least a hundred books under a series of pseudonyms including Marion Chesney the M C of her Beaton persona. If you google her you are in for a big surprise
Barbara Jameson posts on 7/15/2007 1:40:59 PM I started out with the newest one, Love, Lies, and Liquor and was so impressed that I had to start from the beginning. This is one very fascinating author.
Lyn Soanes posts on 4/16/2007 3:47:41 PM I have read every Agatha Raisin book and enjoyed them all I felt that the last one left it open for another book wondering when it will come out. First heard a reading of the book on radio 4 Penelope Keith playing Agatha that was when I went to find the books

M. A. McClavey posts on 12/16/2006 4:09:50 PM I have almost completed the book which is the first Beaton book I have read. I found it for $5.00 in the Book Bazaar, a used and rare book store on Bank Street in Ottawa. I am enjoying the book and I am a little surprised to find out that M.C. Beaton is a woman author.
posts on 5/9/2006 3:56:23 PM To answer Evan Hadkins' question on which book had Hamish whistling as he realizes that things are still the same. The book is Death of a Charming Man.
Eileen Regan posts on 1/30/2006 2:40:29 PM Just finished re-reading Death of a Nag, one of the early Hamish books. I found it second-hand at Strand books for 4.00. This definately is one of the best Hamish stories. You can almost visualize the people Beaton writes about as they cause Hamish to suffer the scorn of his townspeople who think he broke Pricilla's heart. It is an old one, (1995) but one of the best.
Eileen Regan posts on 12/14/2005 1:37:24 PM I'd like to see both Hamish and Agatha travel to the US to solve a crime. And woudn't it be cool if they met!
Evan Hadkins posts on 11/16/2005 4:09:05 AM Which Hamish McBeth book is it where it finishes with Hamish whistling because he realises that he things are just the same as when the book opened?
Laura posts on 10/17/2005 8:36:36 PM There are several of the Hamish books read by Malcolm Graeme. Death of a Bore, Dustman, Poison Pen, Village and a Highland Christmas. Also Death of a Celebrity and Death of a Hussy are on tape, but I couldn't tell who they were read by. I found Death of an Outsider by Gregor Hunt!! I've never heard of him. These can be purchased on Amazon or BarnesandNobel but some are pricey and most are used. I love them too. Ask your library if they can get them. They will usually try to get them for you or get them on loan from another library. Sometimes they show up on eBay, but they can also be high. I really like the ones read by Davina Porter too - they are usually the earlier ones. The reader really does make a difference. It can be a real turn off if you don't like the reader.
Susie Graehling posts on 10/17/2005 7:08:59 PM Hello - I love the Hamish Macbeth series. I have been reading them and listening to them on tape. However, I only like the tape/CD version when it is read by the male voice, whose name now escapes me. (Graehme Malcom possibly?) I'd like to know how many books on audio he has done, and how I can get ahold of them since my local library only has two. THanks for your time.
