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.
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
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.
