Agatha Raisin and the Potted Gardener

Penelope Keith again brought the story alive beautifully. A good light and relaxing detective tale.

A stellar performance by Penelope Keith as Agatha.

Brilliant performance by Penny Keith as the redoubtable Agatha. I particularly love the way she skilfully portrays all of the characters so seamlessly and yet still maintains the voice of narrator. A consummate professional, and the only narrator in this series that can do justice to M.C. Beaton's inimitable PR/Sleuth, Aggie Raisin. All other narrators pale in comparison.

Cheesy, but in a good way!

Only discovered Agatha last week whilst browsing in the "Deals", wanting something to fill in before my next credit applied. I've now listened to the first three books in the series and am addicted! So very easy to listen too. Witty and well read. The stories are so cheesy they are delightful!

A pleasant way to spend an afternoon!

Agatha Raisin is still growing older disgracefully; an inspiration to us all. Made even more delightful by the inspired reading by Penelope Keith.

Cosy ,predictable ..perfect for an easy listen.

Agatha Raisin is perfect for a relaxing listen. I love a good crime story ,dark and grisly is great! ...That said ,sometimes I want a "cosy " whodunnit ,and Agatha always does the job. Penelope Keith is sublime.

Agatha being Agatha

Great little tale of village life & its somewhat dark side. It's obvious who the 1 perp is but the mystery is the twist.

Love the series

Wonderful as always, a far cry from every day life and just delightful escapism in the not sure tranquil Cotswold countryside. Excellent transition in-between other terrific but challenging books. I'm gradually making my way through the series as I'm late to this very British party!

Such fun

I've really enjoyed listening to this, the third book by M. C. Beaton. Lighthearted intrigue.
