Publisher's Summary

Agatha has fallen in love - again.

This time it's the local gardener, George Marston, she has her eye on. But competition for his attention abounds. With her shameless determination Agatha will do anything to get her man - including footing the bill for a charity ball in town just for the chance to dance with him. But when George is a no-show Agatha goes looking for him - and finds he has been murdered, having been bitten by a poisonous snake and buried in a compost heap. Agatha and the rest of her crew plunge into an investigation and discover that George had quite a complicated love life. And if Agatha now can't have George, at least she can have the satisfaction of confronting those women who have and finding a murderer in the process.

    "Another Enjoyable Tale"

    Once again Agatha Raisin hits the mark, enjoyable to the end with such wonderful narration. A little escapism, a little fun and always a tittering moment within the pages.



    A pleasure and just as good as the others in the series. If you want something unchallenging, entertaining that holds your attention then Agatha will not let you down.

    "Agatha Raisin, Like me but with Money!!!"

    Agatha (Aggie) is a great character, eccentric, prickly, selfish and normal. I have read all of the Agatha Raisin books, it is difficult to choose my favourite, Hiss & Hers is an easy listen & Penelope Keith epitimises Aggie, she is Aggie! All the characters are brilliantly crafted & likeable. Should you need cheering up listen to this I defy you not to smile, in fact any of the series will make you smile!! These books will appeal mostly to women of a certain age, if that makes me ageist & sexist so be it, I won't apologise.

    "Agatha again."

    I enjoyed this latest installement of the Agatha Raisin series - they're not gritty, hard hitting or particulary believable but the characters of Mrs Bloxby, Bill Wong, Roy Silver and Agatha are likeable enough to keep you listening. Penelope Keith narrates this well and it was a pleasant accompaniment to a day's spring cleaning.

    "Cant wait to start listening"

    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.

    Story
    "Oh dear!"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Not sure - someone with fairly low expectations, perhaps!


    What was most disappointing about M. C. Beaton’s story?

    The main character was unbelievably silly and irritating.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I like Penelope Keith, but maybe she is better as an actress than as a narrator. Or maybe it was because the story was so irritating that she couldn't make it better than it was.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Irritation and disappointment that I had wasted a month's credit on it


    Any additional comments?

    Light entertainment stories I can handle from time to time. Rank stupidity I can't...

    "Comfort-listening at its best"

    Listening to an Agatha Raisin audiobook is like curling up under a merino wool blanket with a large mug of tea on a rainy afternoon. It is a comforting, entertaining listen that's easy to follow and doesn't lose too much if you're multi-tasking (in my case, marking 180 exercise books and fending off a tantrumming toddler).



    If you want a gentle, humorous, entertaining whodunnit then this is it. Old fans of Ms Raisin won't be disappointed and, though I would advise anyone to start with the first in the series (The Quieche of Death) and work their way through, I don't think it matters too much in terms of following the plot if you're new to Agatha's antics.



    Not a highbrow literary masterpiece; not an edge-of-your-seat, hair-on-end, scare-a-minute thriller... but it loses nothing for this - a rib-tickling caper with a few close scrapes thrown in - Keep them coming Ms Beaton!

    "Another gem"

    I love Aggie and Penelope Keith's characterisation of her in all the Agatha Raisin books. Can't wait for the next.

    "Good Fun"

    I have enjoyed most of this series and this one lived up to the standard of the others. Penelope Keith is easy to listen to and adds to the overall story. The characters are consistent and familiar. Personally I hope there are a lot more Agatha Raisin stories to come.
