Agatha Raisin and the Murderous Marriage by M.C. Beaton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Oh Agatha! You’ve gone and done it again! I listened to the audiobook version, narrated by Penelope Keith, always amazing. I’d recommend this series to anyone looking for a light-hearted, good time, appreciate a bit of snickers as it reads like a bit of juicy gossip you’d overhear at a dog park.
I loved the commentary on the world situation. It was amazing how relevant to today and this book was written 25 years ago.
One thing I’ve noticed as I’ve read along is how the author only really gets into physical descriptions when describing what people are wearing and they’re hilarious at that, really captured the whole essence of the person.
I love this series so much!
