Publisher's Summary

The third volume of the M.C. Beaton mystery series, starring Penelope Keith.

The Curious Curate
When the village curate is found murdered, retired PR guru Agatha Raisin vows to bring his killer to justice, particularly if the investigation also brings her closer to her handsome next-door neighbour, Colonel Lacey. Duck and Cover Still reeling from the death of their curate, the inhabitants of Carsely decide on Duck Racing and Morris Dancing to cheer themselves up. But the village Fete is unlikely to go smoothly while the killer is still amongst them.

The Buried Treasure
When Agatha embarks on a plan to give up smoking; little does she know that it will lead to a treasure hunt, humiliation and a rather nasty murder. The Civil War The search to find the killer leads Agatha and James to the dreaming spires of Oxford, where they soon get intimate - in a cupboard full of E. M. Forster first editions.

    "cute, lighthearted and fun"

    Penelope Keith is a delight. These are fun little stories, when you need to zone out.

    "Relaxing and fun read!"

    Loved this audiobook. Excellent narration by Penelope Keith made very easy listening. Stories are fun and enthralling equally.

    "Mildly entertaining"

    I have listened to and enjoyed all the Agatha Raisin BBC dramatisations. However these two dramatisations are definitely the weakest of them all. Pretty thinly plotted and not as entertaining as the others. Still worth a listen though if you need something light!

    "Disappointed /confused!"

    I love the Agatha Raisin books and look forward to my hour before I go to sleep listening to them. However, the title of this implied two stories The Curious Curate and The Buried Treasure. The publishers review gave descriptions of both stories. Granted, It is unusual to have two stories but this book ended after the first. Am I missing something.

    "Good Fun"

    Agatha Raisin is not the finest amateur sleuth and she does find the most inappropriate men but she does have charm. Penelope Keith brings her wonderfully to life and it is easy to get drawn in to the fun as Agatha rushes around looking for clues.

    "I wish they would make more"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Agatha Raisin to be better than the print version?

    I've never read the printed version


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Agatha Raisin?

    the performance is brilliant with a good cast that bring the audio book to life


    Have you listened to any of Penelope Keith’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    only the other Raisin books that are available on Audible


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    no the overall performance, I prefer cast than just a narrator when it comes to audio books I've re-listened to this several times


    Any additional comments?

    I wish they would make more!

    "It's a radio show"

    This is actually a recording of a radio show. Yet he actors are excellent and demonstrate the strength of Beaton's dialogue. However the annoying fiddle music and the announcer's input are distracting. Even though this version is cheap I prefer the traditional audio format

    "full cast audio"

    I absolutely adore the full cast show. It is well done and Miss Keith is perfect for the character. The only reason I gave it a four star is that they changed the voice of the original Roy and P.C. Wong. Otherwise I highly recommend it. Just like the old time radio shows.
