Summary

Agatha Raisin, retired PR supremo, has been spurned at the altar by the man of her dreams, her attractive neighbour James Lacey. So temporarily deserting the sleepy Cotswold village of Carsely, she pursues her fleeing fiancé to north Cyprus where, instead of enjoying a romantic honeymoon, they witness the killing of an obnoxious tourist in a disco. Can the duo forget their differences and resume their strangely successful sleuthing partnership?

Agatha Raisin brought to life!

I love the way Penelope Keith narrates these tales, she makes each character individual & believable! Her acting combined with the great adventures make a great team!

Hooked from the start

Since the Agatha Raisin series is not available in German, I started reading them in English. Penepole Keith IS Agatha. I downloaded a lot of the audiobooks and after finishing one, I cant wait to start the next one.

Addictive Rubbish

I can't explain the attraction of this series of books for me. They're a collection of stereotypes strung together in completely preposterous storylines. The writing is appalling.
And yet for some reason I keep getting drawn back to their empty-caloried addictiveness.
This one is particularly bad with our heroine suddenly jumping into bed with the most oily man ever written and our emotionally unavailable hero off stage pursuing drug runners.
Complete piffle.
I'm off to read the next one.
Penelope Keith is perfection.

Penelope Keith you rock :)

I love all the Agatha Raisin by Beaton, but mostly because they are narrated by Penelope Keith. She puts on a truly wonderful performance. I bought most of the series because I like listening to her :)))
Many thanks

Agatha goes on "holiday"...

Not the strongest storyline in the series, bogging occasionally in guide-book style local historical detail, but entertaining nevertheless with Penelope Keith delivering an impeccable and delightfully handled performance as always.
