I hate to write a negative review, but let's face it, audio is about narration. This is the last audio version of the Agatha Raisin series I will purchase unless Donata Peters returns to narrate. Agatha Raisin is actually a humorous character, but you would never know that with Davina Porter's delivery. I'm a huge fan of both Agatha Raisin and Hamish Macbeth, but narrators can make or break storytelling. First the switch to Penelope Keith whose delivery I disliked ( I cringed every time she read Toni Gilmour's parts) and now Davina Porter which was nothing short of horrible. I'm done. My only hope is that Graeme Malcolm continues as Hamish MacBeth or I'll be READING that series as well instead of listening to it.
I also agree with another reviewer, M.C. Beaton has changed the characters - this was not our typical Charles and James. All in all a very disappointing experience. I always re-listen to my Agatha and Hamish audiobooks - not this time.
