Agatha Raisin and the Day the Floods Came: Agatha Raisin, Book 12 | [M. C. Beaton]

Agatha Raisin and the Day the Floods Came: Agatha Raisin, Book 12

Abandoned by new husband James, Agatha Raisin hops on a plane to the South Pacific in the hope that an idyllic holiday will bring some consolation. There, she befriends a honeymooning couple, but tragically, the young bride is accidentally drowned. Returning home to the Cotswolds, Agatha finds herself involved in a strangely similar situation: a woman, dressed in a wedding gown, is found floating in the river. The police say suicide, but Agatha, spurred on by bitter reflections on the married state, sets out to prove them wrong.

    Great book. Shame about the narrater much too strident and patronising working class people don't speak like village idiots.

    "Overall a lovely listen."

    I like my listening easy some days and the Agatha Raisin series gives you that. This is another good quick listen that will get you happily from A to B.

    Story
    "nothing exciting, good reliable listening"
    Where does Agatha Raisin and the Day the Floods Came rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    About half way down


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    the complexity of the story makes it interesting, however it also appears rather convoluted which can be a bit irritating (it feels that there are too many red herrings)


    Which character – as performed by Penelope Keith – was your favourite?

    the main character is by far the strongest (several of the voices are a bit strange)


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Nope.


    Any additional comments?

    good solid listening - don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed.
