No matter what she tries to do, trouble has a way of finding Brenda and when her old adversary Mr Danby starts filling the airwaves with his late-night phone-in show it can only mean one thing.
But fate has an even bigger surprise in store. Romance is in the air for Brenda and, do what she will, she cannot deny that she and her man were made for each other - literally.
As usual, Brenda and Effie face up to whatever dangers come their way with fortitude and grace: even if that means journeying to places beyond their wildest dreams.
Joanna Tope reads the third gripping, fantastically funny instalment in Paul Magrs’ delightful ‘Brenda & Effie’ series.
This book is not from Brenda's point of view and at times it's hard to tell which character is Effie and which is Brenda. In the previous books Brenda has a deeper voice and Effie is high pitched. A few times the performance has Brenda high pitched.
This only occurred a few times and not enough to ruin the experience.
Overall very enjoyable.
As per the first two books. My opinion is the same. Simply wonderful! great storyline of two elderly ladies mixing in a supernatural world and kicking supernatural butt!
Another great story in the Brenda and Effie series, Only slight criticism would be of one of the voices... But thats my personal taste.
All in all I'd recommend this to everyone.
What did you like most about Conjugal Rites?
Magrs's use of language and northern colonialisms.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Brenda, because she loves a good punch up.
What about Joanna Tope’s performance did you like?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No, but I listened to it over a few nights.
Any additional comments?
The authors use of language made this such a funny book, written in a biographical fashion, it tells the story of Brenda and Effie who battle against the darkside of Whitby in the north of England. Things don't always go right for the crime fighting duo but, the book has a comic ending.
