Publisher's Summary

In the delightful Cotswold village of Carsely, the air is heady with romance. Agatha Raisin is convinced that the new vet has taken a shine to her. But before she can get anywhere, handsome Dr Paul Bladen is accidentally killed while attending to Lord Pendlebury's horse. So was it really an accident? All the evidence points that way, but the circumstances are decidedly suspicious.

Always Entertaining

These books are usually narrated by Penelope Keith, so it was with a bit of trepidation I bought this one narrated by Diana Bishop, whose work I am unfamiliar with.
However, there is no need for concern. Diana is wonderful. Very similar voice to Penelope's. The beauty of these stories for me lies in the frankness with which the character of Agatha Raisin is laid bare for us.

Horrible Narration

As ever this is typical Agatha up to her usual escapades resulting in a humorous Miss Marple type adventure. However, for those listeners used to Penelope Keith's voice on this series be warned that this is a different narrator who at times sounds dreary and rarely gives characters a distinctive voice (unlike Ms Keith). This not only takes a lot of the normal fun out of the book but also made it difficult to follow; i.e. who was talking to whom.

Missing Penelope Keith

An excellent book, M.C. Beaton, as always, weaves a web of evil around the Cotswold villages



However, being used to PK narrating the Agatha Raisin books, I found this to be missing that special element
