Publisher's Summary

Feeling jilted and cross, Agatha follows a fortune-teller's advice and rents a cottage in the pretty village of Fryfam, where she hopes good fortune and true love will come chasing after her. Unfortunately, her romantic notions are soon dispelled by the strange goings-on in the village. What are those strange lights in Agatha's back garden? Who is stealing paintings and pottery? And who murdered the local squire? Agatha's nose for trouble leads her into a maelstrom of jealousy, blackmail, and dangerous liaisons....

Oh no!

Spoiler alert: Ok, I always thought that Agatha and James marrying would make me happy, but now I see the elephant traps surrounding the newly married couple AND I find myself rooting for Charles! OMG! I never saw that coming. Can't wait for the next book.

Agatha raisin grows on you.

Each story I cannot decide if I like Agatha or not. She is a dichotomy. As are many of the characters. It is different from other books l listen to. In the end they are overall fun stories. And I do keep going back for more. What stupid thing will she do next?

Identified murderer before mystery solved

I have listened to a number of Agatha Raisin mysteries and this is the first one I figured out before Agatha shared her thoughts. Still a fun story to listen to.

a wonderful series

This is a great series which I have spoken about before. The series continues to grow in its story introducing new characters to bulk out the back story and add layers and texture to future stories.

Better plot

I always enjoy Mrs. Raisin’s shenanigans, but this plot was tighter than the last two. Full marks.

Good Story

Where does Agatha Raisin and the Fairies of Fryfam rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is always entertaining to hear about the trouble that Agatha gets in when she tries to be "retired". This was a cute story and I like the ending

The ending

What about Penelope Keith’s performance did you like?

She captures Agatha well - but maybe a bit shrill sometimes
