Agatha Raisin's detective agency has become so successful that now all she wants is some R&R. But as soon as she cuts back her hours, Agatha remembers that when she has too much quality time, she doesn't know what to do with it. So it doesn't take much for the vicar of a nearby village to persuade her to help publicize the church fete, especially when the fair's organizer, George Selby, happens to be a gorgeous widower. The problem is that several of the offerings in the jam-tasting booth turn out to be poisoned, and the festive family event soon becomes a murder scene. Now Agatha must uncover the truth behind the jam tampering and expose the nasty secrets lurking in the seemingly innocent village - all while falling for handsome George, who just may have some secrets of his own.

Yes, it's entertaining
George - he was dispicable!!
She's a great narrator
I certainly laughed in a few places. Cry - no.
Great story, love her series of books. Can't wait to read the next one
Not necessarily better because M.C. Beaton is a great writer, but definitely enhanced by a great narrator, Wanda McCaddon, aka Donada Peters.
Yes, because I didn't suspect Trixie until half way thru.
Yes. Many performances under her other name--Donada Peters. She is wonderful as Agatha. She does both male and female voices so well you forget you're listening to just one person. So good to see Donada back after a long absence. Please don't switch narrators again. Stick with a winner.
Wanda McCaddon/Donada Peters IS Agatha Raisin. Her voice inflections capture Agatha and all the other characters beautifully. I can listen to her narration so again and again. The other narrators, once is enough and Allison Larkin has got to go. While she is a good enough narrator, she is a failed experiment for the Agatha Raisin series.
