Agatha Raisin books are easy, light reading and Penelope Keith brilliantly reads the audio versions but at times M C Beaton goes through the motions and the books become a little too predictable but even then I do find myself laughing out loud and enjoying the banter. Hiss and Hers has the usual cast of regular characters [Agatha and her detective agency staff; Mrs Bloxby; Charles; ex husband James; and her PR colleague, Roy, with bizarre clothes sense] plus we have the 'male' lust interest and the other 'women' that inflame Agatha to anger and jealousy!
Agatha has fallen for the local gardener, along with most of the single females in the village, so when she finds him dead in his compost heap brutally and vengefully murdered she is determined to discover who did it - there are twists and turns but I felt some red herrings were just thrown in with no real believable reasoning for them being suspects and one lady interviewed just had to say look I have tickets from the theatre to be dismissed as a possible culprit!
The joy of Agatha is that despite her abrasive personality and foibles you do root for her but some of the 'angry Agatha' bits do get a little overplayed and I would certainly not say this is in my top 5 Agatha books. The audio version is quite long at 6 hours but I find they are good books to listen to on family journeys as all ages find them light, frothy fun without needing to focus on every little nuance. I will read more Agatha Raisin [or listen to the audio versions] but reading too many together can be a little too much to digest.
