    "Agatha Your Wonderful!!!!"

    I love this story. Agatha's adventure in the ladies room, made me laugh so hard; passing motorist thought I was insane. None of the characters can steal a sene from Agatha. She's inquisitive as Miss Marple with the tenacity of Kinsey Millhone. All readers over the age of 45 will enjoy the way she stumbles into solving crimes. CSI look out 😉

    "Ya Gotta Love Aggie"

    I really enjoy the "Agatha Raisin" books. She is such a girl. She needs to realise that having a man is not the answer to everything. But cats are always a good addition to any family. Well worth the credit!

    "Agatha's antics make me laugh out loud!"

    If you love the dry, iconic English wit and dream of living in the Cotswolds and completely mixing your manners and solving whodunits (that really are good mysteries) you will have great fun with Agatha. If you don't long for anything above, I still feel you'll have a great time! My favorite light reading out of hundreds of audio books.

    "Very Entertaining"

    I truly enjoyed this book. Agatha is funny, brilliant and brave. I enjoyed her interactions with both Bill Wong and James Lacey. I hope to see more of this trio in the next book.

    Story
    "Good Book, Disappointing Narrator"

    Agatha Raisin is back in the village of Carsely, after spending a holiday abroad. She's determined to snag the heart of neighbor, James Lacey. However when James doesn't return her advances, Agatha catches the eye of the new vet, Paul Bladen. However before a romance can truly begin, Paul Bladen, turns up dead. Despite it being ruled as an accident, Agatha is certain that it is murder, and drags James Lacey along to help investigate. Agatha hopes to not only make James fall in love with her, but solve the murder too!

    Oh Agatha, how I love thee! You are spunky, speak your mind and are behaving like a boy-crazy middled aged woman! It's impossible not to like Agatha with her zest for life. This time she has romance on the mind as she chases vet, Paul Bladen, and retired Colonel, James Lacey. Of course when it doesn't go her way she stamps her feet and becomes more determined.

    This series has such a great colorful cast of characters, and it was great to see many of them returning in the second book. I would have liked to have seen more of the Carsely Ladies Society, but I'm sure they will be popping up in the next book too.

    This audiobook flew by in a torrent of enjoyable goings on in the village, as Agatha and James try to solve the murder. Before I knew it the murder was solved and the audio was finished, leaving me wanting to grab the next one.

    The first book in this series was narrated by Penelope Keith, and this second one was narrated by Diana Bishop. I really wished they hadn't changed narrators. Where Penelope was great and expressed all the color of the characters of Carsely, Diana fell flat for me. At times I had a hard time distinguishing the voices and it was really the story that pulled me through to the end of the book, with no help from the narrator. If you are a cozy mystery fan, this is a such a great series and I intend to continue on. The next in the series is narrated by Penelope Keith, and I can't wait!

    Story
    "If You're In the Mood for a Fun Cozy"

    When I want a light read to offset heavy reads, I turn to a number of favorite cozy characters, including Agatha Raisin. I don't read them in order, because wherever I reenter Agatha's life, I know it will be fun and easy to catch up. The story wasn't my favorite, the villain being a bit far-fetched, but I always enjoy irascible Agatha trying to lure James Lacey into her web.
