Publisher's Summary

Suffering from bald patches thanks to a hair conditioner spiked with depilatory cream - supplied by the murderess in her last investigation - Agatha escapes to the coastal resort of Wyckhadden to allow her crowning glory to recover in privacy. A local witch provides her with hair tonic and Agatha’s lost locks begin to grow - but then the witch is found bludgeoned to death. The elderly residents at Agatha’s faded hotel seem innocuous enough, if a little odd. But, as she enquires into the murder she turns up an alarming number of secrets....

    "Agatha Raisin and the Witches of Wyckhadden"

    I enjoyed Agatha's adventures in Wyckhadden, but I wish she would make better decisions in her personal life.

    Story
    "Agatha and the Supernatural"
    Where does Agatha Raisin and the Witches of Wyckhadden rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    top ten


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Besides Agatha! Charles was on hand again when needed....I love it whenever Agatha has a should to cry on. He really is a great support to Agatha....I am glad this has never developed into an actual romantic relationship.


    Have you listened to any of Penelope Keith’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She is 'the' Agatha Raisin. No one can compare to her...she is fantastic. She does for Agatha what David Suchet does for Poirot!


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

    When Agatha feels at her lowest...charles shows up! Never gets old.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the book.

    Story
    "The Best One So Far"
    Would you listen to Agatha Raisin and the Witches of Wyckhadden again? Why?

    Yes. I've been reading this series in order, and have enjoyed each of the previous eight books, but this is the best so far. It combines hilarious physical comedy (not easy to do when working with a two-dimensional page), pathos, mystery, and moments of genuine suspense.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Agatha Raisin and the Witches of Wyckhadden?

    When Agatha loses her wig, finds the first body.


    Have you listened to any of Penelope Keith’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Penelope Keith is brilliant, she can do both male and female voices beautifully, has impeccable timing, and pronunciation.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Agatha Raisin is a complicated 'real' character. The author has created a woman with tragic faults and doesn't 'fix' them. Though Agatha has grown to be a better person, that growth is slow, realistic, believable. Agatha always makes the same stupid mistakes with men, because she follows the 'fault line' of the personality Beaton has created for her. These books are fun.

    "Too short"

    The first Agatha raisin books were longer, now they seem to get shorter and shorter, with the solving of the murder coming too quickly just before the end. Still good books, they just go by too fast.

    "The Witch in the Recording would be apt"

    I enjoyed the story. I enjoyed Agatha branching out. Feels unfortunate that she is still suffering from some of the same Agatha maladies but I think we all know and love them and I've come to expect it. The recording on this one had some very strange and unceremonious pauses. The seem to serve only to disrupt my listening pleasure. Does anyone do a quality check on these before they roll them out?

    "The Witches of Wyckhadden"

    Another good tale of the adventures of Agatha Raisin. lighthearted and fun. Penelope Keith is a very good reader, her accents are sometimes not perfect but hey you get the picture. I have enjoyed this story.

    Story
    "Fed up with such a stupid "heroine ""

    Not my thing when the only way an author can think of to create plot tension is to make her protagonist more and more abysmally stupid with each page. There is absolutely nothing sympathetic about Agatha Raisin.
