    I am someone who enjoys audible books very much now that they exist. As a young student (real young) I can remember a teacher telling me how books can transport people to different places & open up a whole new world. This is how listening to audible books make me feel. Now if I can just stop falling asleep while listening to them at night I would be fine. Ha ha

    "I can't get enough of Agatha Raisin!"

    I'm a very fickle reader. I rarely read more than a couple of books in a series before moving onto another series. I switch my series a lot. However, I've now listened to three Agatha Raisin books almost back-to-back. This is a clear indicator that I'm loving this series so much!

    In the third book in the series Agatha Raisin has returned from a holiday abroad to find that her neighbour, James Lacey, is dating newcomber, Mary Fortune. Mary seems to be perfect - a great baker, a fantastic gardener and everyone is talking about her. Not only has she stolen James from her (even though James and Agatha have not dated - yet!) and she is now the center of attention from all the villagers in Carsely. However, when Mary turns up dead it would seem that not everyone is Mary's biggest fan. James and Agatha join forces again to try and solve the mystery.

    Agatha, Agatha, Agatha! She talks her mind, and has no problem swearing and saying "crap". Her emotions certainly go through through the ringer in this book. She has such strong affections for James and it breaks my heart that he doesn't return her affections. Instead he almost flaunts Mary in her face. Poor Agatha!! Because of his relationship with Mary, I almost despised James in this book. He wants Agatha as a friend, Mary as a lover and yet he seems excited by the fact that he knows that Agatha adores him. It will be interesting to see whether I like James in the next book.

    This series is so perfect for me. There is village gossip, murder and the fabulous Agatha and I absolutely can't get enough of her!

    I was so thrilled that Penelope Keith was back to narrate in this third book. She is by far the best narrator of this series. Her delivery is flawless and I can't ever imagine anyone else voicing the impetuous Agatha. I absolutely can't wait for the next book in this series.

    "My Dear Agatha"
    Any additional comments?

    I admit I adore this light and fluffy series starring our Agatha Raisin.

    Ms. Keith's narration is amazing. She's perfect for the part, and I hope she remains the narrator for the rest of the books.

    These mysteries are fun, if murder can be called 'fun', and while I've usually figured it all out well in advance of the end I continue to listen just to hear Agatha speak her mind again and again.

    A delight, start to finish, without being taxing on the brain.

    Story
    "Death and the Unfaithful."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, Agatha has a way of making murder mysterious and funny.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Agatha Raisin and the Potted Gardener?

    When Agatha cheated again. This time securing a false exquisite garden, to enter in another contest.


    What does Penelope Keith bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love to reading the printed word. Yet Penelope has a soothing voice, which makes you feel as though your actually turning to the next page.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Agatha actions of a scorned wife, who discovers her wayward husband guilty of adultery. She delights in embarrassing James during the entire investigation, to show him the errors of his ways. James is not married to Agatha, nor made any romantic intentions towards her; and she now feels the effects of the situation.

    "Will She Never Get it Right?"

    Agatha's competitive spirit might just be her undoing. She really does need to come out on top and be the center of attention. I love Agatha!
