Publisher's Summary

Amateur sleuth Agatha Raisin is going through a man-hating phase and is unmoved by news of a captivating new curate. But when she meets the golden-haired, blue-eyed Tristan Delon, she is swept off her feet...along with every other female in the village. She is positively ecstatic when he invites her to dine with him, but the next day Agatha is left with a hangover from hell and Tristan is worse off: he's dead.

Love my Agatha Raisin stories!

Penelope Keith is a wonderful reader rendering the characters just as I thought they would sound.

Easy Listening with a storyline to keep you engage

Would you listen to Agatha Raisin and the Case of the Curious Curate again? Why?

Mysteries are difficult to listen to again as you already know the outcome, but I would recommend this book if you want something "light" to listen to that can make your problems seem less important than Agatha's.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

This isn't the kind of book to keep you on the edge of your seat, but the plot is interesting and engaging and the ending will surprise you.

What does Penelope Keith bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She brings the character of Agatha Raisin to life. Agatha is like someone you know that you can't really call a friend but you like her anyway. I would compare her a lot to the Hyacinth in Keeping Up Appearances".

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

No. This is a book that is easy to listen to as you have time... commuting, in a waiting room, when you have time on your hands.

Any additional comments?

I like this series because it provides relief from some of the heavier thrillers and action series that I read/ listen to.
