We stayed overnight at the White Hart Royal Hotel in Moreton-in-Marsh, across the street from Mrs. T. Potts tearoom. Moreton-in-Marsh features in a number of Agatha Raisin novels by M. C. Beaton. Agatha Raisin is a 50-something-year-old sleuth whom reviewers liken to "a cross between Miss Marple, Auntie Mame, and a pit bull." If you need to escape into a British cozy mystery with a touch of spoof, I heartily recommend this series. We also recommend Mrs. Pott's toasted teacakes!
