Publisher's Summary

Penelope Keith - who starred as Agatha Raisin in the popular BBC Radio 4 series – reads M. C. Beaton’s eagerly-awaited murder mystery.
Agatha Raisin has never been one for enforced holiday cheer, but her friendly little village of Carsely has always prided itself on its traditional Christmas festivities. However, this year Mr John Sunday, an officer with the Cotswold Health and Safety Board, has chosen Christmas as the time to crack down on what he sees as gross misconduct by everyone. But when Mr Sunday goes too far, he is soon found lying face down in the petunias, very much dead. Agatha is on the case, but with so many people having threatened the life of the victim, it’s hard to know where to start....

Beaton cannot be beat!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Agatha is perfect. The story is fun. Beaton is a genius. Technically you can start anywhere in the series and it is blast. One Agatha Raison book and you will automatically be searching for the rest. This narrator is good. She does a very good job helping the listener recognise the various characters. Highly recommened.

What other book might you compare Agatha Raisin and the Busy Body to and why?

The only one whol comes close is the Maggody series by Joan Hess, and only the earliest ones.

What about Penelope Keith’s performance did you like?

She is engaging, elloquent and professional.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

There is no way to stop a rollercoaster on an incline and who wants to? Pressing pause is a tough decision!

A series of short stories not a novel.

I was a little disappointed to discover that it was a short story initially. However it is a good set of short stories. Well-written.
