A pleasant way to spend an afternoon!

Agatha Raisin is still growing older disgracefully; an inspiration to us all. Made even more delightful by the inspired reading by Penelope Keith.

Cheesy, but in a good way!

Only discovered Agatha last week whilst browsing in the "Deals", wanting something to fill in before my next credit applied. I've now listened to the first three books in the series and am addicted! So very easy to listen too. Witty and well read. The stories are so cheesy they are delightful!

Cosy ,predictable ..perfect for an easy listen.

Agatha Raisin is perfect for a relaxing listen. I love a good crime story ,dark and grisly is great! ...That said ,sometimes I want a "cosy " whodunnit ,and Agatha always does the job. Penelope Keith is sublime.

classic agatha raisin

I love all the Agatha Raisin books and this one was no exception! Always charming and easy to tear through, but a little gritty and exciting too.

Potty

A very interesting and humerus story with a mixture of sub storyline. More information about the characters, cant't wait to read the next one

Amusing

This was made the better for me by the narrator. Penelope Keith has a lovely voice and the story was read well. It was light and amusing

A stellar performance by Penelope Keith as Agatha.

Brilliant performance by Penny Keith as the redoubtable Agatha. I particularly love the way she skilfully portrays all of the characters so seamlessly and yet still maintains the voice of narrator. A consummate professional, and the only narrator in this series that can do justice to M.C. Beaton's inimitable PR/Sleuth, Aggie Raisin. All other narrators pale in comparison.
