    "Poor Agatha! ...Don't skip this one."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes. After reading other reviews I was wary of this book by one of my favorite authors. I was curious why so many readers had negative things to say about the usually marvelous reader and the story itself. Curiosity won out and I had to read it for myself. It turns out that our beloved Agatha seems so unjustly treated by her fellow characters, that it really got my dander up! Also, she reacts in ways that I did not expect of her, and consequently did not want to believe of her. So, at first I thought, "I don't like this!" However, the reality is that the story is as full of twists and turns as we have all come to expect...in fact more so. Since the crisp character of Agatha with all her faults is like an old friend, It is only human nature to want things to work out harmoniously for her in the end rather than seemingly inequitably. Readers experience that often enough in real life.

    In a nutshell, I recommend that avid friends of Agatha brave the reading of this tangled mystery, and muddle through with our heroine to the surprising ending.


    Would you ever listen to anything by M. C. Beaton again?

    Absolutely.


    What about Penelope Keith’s performance did you like?

    Ms. Keith perfectly intones our crusty Agatha and renders the other characters with tell-tale hints of their personalities.


    Do you think Agatha Raisin and the Murderous Marriage needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Definitely...Agatha needs a well deserved pat on the back next time.
