M.C.Beaton has introduced a lovely invention in Agatha Raisin; a late middle-aged lady who has sold up her PR business in London to realise a lifelong dream of living in a cottage in the Cotswolds. Far from being a paragon, Agatha has spent her working life bullying and manipulating to succeed in a cutthroat business and finds with a shock that her new idyllic setting may require her to, as one potential friend suggests, "learn to like people".
The plotline is entertaining, the characters colourful, the heroine amusingly flawed, and the performance by Penelope Keith is truly masterful.
If you are looking to be entertained this won't fail to please!
I'm now hooked on this series after listening to this audio book! Highly recommended if you enjoy Agatha Christie and midsummer murders for a bit of light entertainment.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Fun if you don't want to really concentrate or think too hard.
What about Penelope Keith’s performance did you like?
Always a pleasure
Did Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death inspire you to do anything?
Not move to a small village in the middle of nowhere.

Found this series by accident but very glad I did: amusing & interesting. I was just looking up Penelope Keith to see if she’d recorded any audiobooks, as she has the loveliest English voice to listen to. What listening to this proved is how talented an actress Penelope is. Her characterisations & voices are great. Will definitely continue listening to this series.
I enjoyed it very much. ..used it at night when I couldn't sleep.
