Publisher's Summary

He was a hairdresser to dye for....

The local ladies all deem Mr. John a wizard, so when Agatha Raisin finds a few grey hairs on her head - and the rinse she tries at home turns her hair purple - she makes a beeline for the handsome Evesham hairdresser. And as well as sorting out her hair it soon becomes clear the charming man also has designs on her heart - but their budding romance is cut short when Mr. John is fatally poisoned in his salon. Once again Agatha finds herself embroiled in a murder case. Was it one of Mr. John’s many lady clients, all of whom divulged to him their darkest secrets? It's time for Agatha to get to the root of this hair-raising mystery!

    Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.

    "Not Liking the "Loose" Agatha"

    The murder mystery was fine, except for the fact that Agatha regretted not having slept with the guy . . . I do like the vicar's wife quite a lot . . . but the last three books have Agatha in and out of bed like a jack rabbit . . . with different men :( YUCK . . . these books used to be a lot of fun . . .

    "One day men will learn to appreciate Agatha (I hope!)"

    I simply can't stop reading and listening to this series! Agatha is the most endearing character because it is so easy to relate to her humanness and frailties. The plots keep you engaged as well as provide the backdrop for her evolving character. Well done.

    "Always a light-hearted romp!"

    Delightful characters brought skillfully to life by the masterful narration by Penelope Keith! Very enjoyable, and I like them just as much on the second or third reading.

    I choose authors , then series. Must have quality characters. If I figure things out ,I like to do it as I progress through the story.

    "The series is a delightful addiction."

    The murder is always a surprise but the mystery not what compels read. Agatha Raisin had raised her status in business until she sold her company and retired early.
    In her new life she is dropped into enough unknown that her learning social skills and romance she bumbles into and through mysteries until she solvesvthem usually by becoming a victim of confrontation.
    Found myself laughing through every book in series.

    "Agatha at her best"

    As a sleuth, Agatha is at her best in this novel. James isn't around and that's a plus. Unfortunately, Charles is. I wish Agatha had differnet male friends.

    "Addictive"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Agatha Raisin and the Wizard of Evesham to be better than the print version?

    Yes


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    A little. Some parts were slow.


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

    Her different accents give color to the characters


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

    Agatha Raisin's hair raising misadventures


    Any additional comments?

    Audio is always better than print
