My friend recommended this book to me. A funny, yet slightly sad, storyline with a surprise ending. Had a great plot and the story unfolded so well. Narated perfectly. Can't wait to read her next book.

The potential to attract money and create abundant wealth doesn't reside in your job, your circumstances, or even the economy. It resides within you. Your mind is equipped with the natural ability to attract as much money as you want and need - at anytime, anyplace, in any financial climate, without struggle. You just have to know how to trigger it.

Agatha Raisin's detective agency has become so successful that now all she wants is some R&R. But as soon as she cuts back her hours, Agatha remembers that when she has too much quality time, she doesn't know what to do with it. So it doesn't take much for the vicar of a nearby village to persuade her to help publicize the church fete, especially when the fair's organizer, George Selby, happens to be a gorgeous widower.

Agatha Raisin is bored. Her detective agency in the Cotswolds is thriving, but she'll scream if she has to deal with another missing cat or dog. Only two things seem to offer potential excitement: Christmas and her ex, James Lacey. This year Agatha is sure that if she invites James to a splendid Christmas dinner, their love will rekindle like a warm Yule log. But that fantasy will have to wait for now.

Would you listen to Kissing Christmas Goodbye again? Why?

Love this style of writing, good characters, great storylines. I have become a fan of Agatha Raisin mysteries!

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved Agatha, she sounds a very spirited lady! I also think Tony has opened up and is a good sidekick to Agatha.

Which scene was your favorite?

There were a few good ones, but I enjoyed her first visit to the Manor House and the subsequent weekend she spent there. I also particularly enjoy hearing about the villages in the Cotswold she lives in, or visits. One of my favorite parts of England so it's lovely to imagine where she is.

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

Yes, if I had the time.

Any additional comments?

I am now an Agatha Raisin fan!. Just signed up for her latest book. Can't wait to start listening.

So when Sir Osmond Melbury, the family patriarch, is discovered - by a guest dressed as Santa Klaus - with a bullet in his head on Christmas Day, the festivities are plunged into chaos. Nearly everybody stands to reap some sort of benefit from his death excepting Santa Klaus, the one person who seems to have had every opportunity to fire the shot.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This book just wasn't my style. I found it hard going and difficult to keep up with the story as all the characters were telling their accounts separately. I know it was written this way, but I didn't enjoy this style.

What could Mavis Doriel Hay have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I like a story to unfold like a story, not just statements, or their accounts, being read out by each character. I would have returned the book earlier and I probably should have. Sorry.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narrator did a good job.

  • Goddesses Never Age

Though we talk about wanting to age gracefully, the truth is that when it comes to getting older, we’re programmed to dread an inevitable decline: in our health, our looks, our sexual relationships, even the pleasure we take in living life. But as Christiane Northrup, MD, shows us in this profoundly empowering program, we have it in us to make growing older an entirely different experience for both our bodies and our souls.

Would you consider the audio edition of Goddesses Never Age to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the printed version, but I'm tempted to buy it now as there were many things I heard that I'd like to have a record of. There's too much to write down so the written version would be useful. .

Who was your favorite character and why?

N/A

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

No haven't read her books before, but I'm going to find another one right away!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

N/A

Any additional comments?

Her narration is excellent and the information, and inspiration she has given is fantastic. I'm looking for another one of her titles to listen to. I highly recommend this book, especially if you are a 50-something ageless goddess like I am now!!
