Product Description

Review

"* 'Agatha Raisin is sharp, witty, hugely intelligent, unfailingly entertaining, delightfully intolerant and oh so magnificently non PC. M C Beaton has created a new national treasure... the stories zing along and are irresistible, unput-downable, a joy. If you buy one book a year, let it be this. Agatha Raisin is The Strongest Link.' - Anne Robinson * 'Beaton's dry sense of humour and her unflattering but affectionate portrait of gruff, often adolescent acting Agatha make this... tale a bloom worth picking.' - Publishers Weekly"

Product Description

Abandoned by James, Agatha hops on a plane to the South Pacific. There she meets a honeymooning couple but tragically, the new bride accidentally drowns. Returning home to Carsely, Agatha finds herself involved in a strangely similar situation - a woman, dressed in a wedding gown, is found floating in a river. The police believe it is suicide but Agatha, spurred on by memories of her disastrous marriage, sets out to prove them wrong.

2.0 out of 5 stars a bit wet 27 July 2010
Format:Paperback
Oh dear my second and I fear my last Agatha Raisin. This appears to be the twelfth in the series I had previously read the first one which I enjoyed. It just seems to be more of the same. It comes across that Agatha is still a cranky older woman in a series of unfulfilling and unsatisfactory relationships which colour her view of the whole world. The murder story was good but the back story kept getting in the way for me. Perhaps it is aimed at a different market. Dare I say older women in search of murder story with a little romance? I suppose it fits the bill.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great adventure for Agatha . 20 Aug 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A really enjoyable storyline . Agatha at her best , fed up and bored with life ,she goes off to Robinson Crusoe island and moans continually about the lack of the 5 star facilities that she is used to, but on meeting a lovely family who take her in hand she has a great time . On returning home it doesnt take long for her to get involved in a puzzling murder ,recalling memories of the island holiday.

5.0 out of 5 stars Day the floods came 26 July 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
usually funny as well as having the serious side. shennanigans with the neighbours on all counts especially the chap next door! Or even with any new character thats in a particular story melts in with Agatha Raisin. I have some dramatisations of Agatha Raisin which are hilarious with the seriousness of a case they are just light mysteries.

By C. FULLER TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I have read all of the Agatha Raisin books and in any order. This one dating from 2010 is excellent as it takes us on another journey and the characters we meet as Agatha gets into more troubles are a different age group so interesting how she copes. There is always a comedy element to Agatha whether it is her out spoken views on most subjects but particularly the smoking ban or her head in the sand approach to relationships. All told this one got me guessing and the killer was nicely disguised. Always easy to read they are excellent value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stories 4 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
You have to be careful with these as it is so easy to become addicted. I listen to the books whilst ironing and now everybody has beautifully ironed socks as I stop the CD as soon as the ironing is finished and have to wait until ironing again to continue with the story. Penelope Keith is without doubt superb and totally draws you into the story. Speedy delivery well packaged.

I love listening to Penelope Keith reading MC Beaton's Agatha Raisin stories and this one is no exception. I was delighted with the box set I received - in excellent condition and delivered very speedily which is the service I am accustomed to from Amazon. Excellent value for money.

Although it's rather repetitious on descriptions of Agatha's personal neurosis, in a way that's why it's such easy reading. Read more

I would have loved this book but from 58 per cent in the pages were either mixed up or missing it made it difficult to comprehend.
