This author is the modern day Agatha Christie and leads you up many blind avenues before revealing the end game. Excellent reading and difficult to put down once started. Hope there are more to come. All her books are good reads.

Agatha Raisin with her own detective agency, introducing more characters. Plenty of action, and read with great gusto.
Though I do prefer full character CDs, and was dubious about Penelope Keith going it alone, I really enjoyed this. Murder and mayhem at its very best.

Love love love Agatha Raisin. Well worth buying the full version and not the abridge short cast versions. Agatha is best discribed as Miss Marple with attitude. She's nosy, rude, opinionated but oh so amusing, bumbling her way through one murder after another and one romance after another. I think she's 50 something and like most of us at that age has lift syndrome (Everything going south) A must listen for anyone with a couple of hours to spare or listen in bed and drift off to sleep with Penelope Keith's dulcet tones ringing in your ears. Will cheer the most dour of days

By C. FULLER TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 25 Oct. 2012
Format: Paperback
This story is one I have really enjoyed because it jumps about alot and kept my interest from the start to finish. I like it when Agatha comes a cropper and the thought of her almost being thrown from a boat and drowned but managing to escape is quite marvellous. Like wise I could visualise her meeting dates and finding them total wash outs because who would ever meet her criteria for a relationship. The investigations into the murder of a bride and the outcome all kept me guessing. Not over long and nicely segmented this was a book to read over a few days and picking it up again and getting back into the story was easy. I could of course see Penelope Keith as Agatha and I wonder if this was how M C Beaton saw her character.

Ive read all the Agatha Raisin books to date and im sorry to say that this one is absolutely awful.

The story was overly predicatble ,boring and the charactisation dredful.

As another reviewer points out the author repeats herself over and over again with the same use of words "pugnacious faces, steel grey hair " .It was as if MC Beaton had actually forgotton how to write .

This was such a huge disapointment from beginning to end I rushed through it just to finish it, whereby other Agatha Raisin stories I would, yes, be rushing through it but only because I couldnt wait to find out who had done the crime .
At times I found myself thinking is this really MC Beaton's character Agatha Raisin? The ballsy, feisty,rude detective that we have all come to know and love .
It wasnt even amusing in parts just felt like a book written in a day just to make some cash.

I shall purchase the next installment of Agatha Raisin and i will keep my fingers crossed that its better than "there goes the bride".Lets hope for us Agatha fans this was just MC Beaton having an off day

All of the Agatha Raisin books by M C Beaton are marvelous! I really love Agatha, even though she can be a right bossy cow sometimes. She is like all real people, flawed, but I am really on her side and I always want her to be happy, especially with her male friends. Five stars is only right and proper.

I have all the 'Agatha Raisin' book, and loved most of them. However, when I read "A Spoonful of Poison", I was very disappointed in the rush job that seems to have been done, and I wasn't sure whether I wanted to buy another 'Agatha Raisin' novel again.

However, I have bought 'There Goes the Bride', and was relieved to see that this book was far better than the last one, even though the scenes (and people) kept changing at an alarming pace.
One thing I was a little put off with was the fact that Ms Beaton seems to think that any woman over the age of 50 is a dead horse. The description of the 2 ladies - Mrs. Fellows and Mrs. Dimity, who clean Mrs. Bross' house - was as follows: "Both looked to be in their late fifties, and they both had the same tightly permed grey hair..."

Now, in this day and age, there is rarely a woman in her 50s or even 60s anymore who still runs around with tightly permed grey hair. At least, I have never met a woman that looked like she just stepped out of an old Agatha Christie novel, because that's how the women all seem to look like, as if they still lived in the 1920s and 1930s, with their tightly permed grey hair. Grey hair, perhaps. Tightly permed hair? Definitely not. LOL Sorry about that, but it does annoy me.

Another thing I found quite unbelievable was the fact that Agatha was able to just march back into the agency and take over. She had retired and handed over the agency to Toni, Phil and Patrick, making them equal partners. All this doesn't sound very realistic, and it seems that Ms. Beaton is taking too much of an artistic license.
Otherwise, not a bad story.

Well, I stand corrected. The author apparently did attend English language lessons as she devotes a whole paragraph to explaining the conjugation of verbs. If you have a read any of my other reviews the irony will not escape you. I am still frustrated by the sentence construction and organisation of paragraphs but I did really enjoy this story. I have to give her credit for thinking up so many different plots and I think this is one of the better ones. My next challenge is to find a book where she does not describe all the male characters as 'pugnacious'.
