I love this series. I only wish that life was easier for Agatha. She needs a break. I'm hoping for good things to happen to her in future books.
Dewy eyed hopeless romantic
I like Penelope Keith Agatha Raisin the most of all the narrators.
Yes, Charles is my favorite of her boyfriends. I like Agatha, she is brash, rude, bawdy can be quite nasty at times but other times I can really relate to her and she gets away with things we can't in real life without being fired or ostracized.
I got There Goes the Bride from itunes also by Penelope Keith and just love all the Agatha Raisin books read by Penelope Keith.
she is Agatha to me and she can go between the voices with ease and I don't even notice it.
I laugh and I enjoy this book. I have purchased it in January and have listened to it at least 6 times.
Agatha is comical, I love how she can get rude but M.C. Beaton doesn't have her go so far as to swear but she will give great descriptions like Agatha told the two men to perform physically impossible acts on themselves and you know what she means but the context and the situation is funny.
Her cooking attempts are hilarious. I recommend this one, There Goes the Bride, the Haunted House and the Deadly Dance are really funny.
