The small town of Carsley is once again hit with a brand new mystery. An old woman reports that her home is haunted and she needs a ghost hunter. Feeling bored, Agatha Raisin volunteers and this time she’s accompanied by her handsome new neighbor, Paul Chatterton. It’s not long before they discover that the woman is very well hated and most likely the victim of a prank. When the woman winds up dead, Agatha is right there to lend her services as a private investigator. She might not officially be a PI, but as an amateur sleuth, she gets the job done better than the police. Not to mention that she’s more equipped to investigate than to hunt for ghosts.
Penelope Keith always does a wonderful job at narrating these books. I’ve become so used to her voice and I really enjoy her style of storytelling. She plays each character very well and they truly come to life. The characters become quite vivid to me.
This is the 14th book in the series. I’m racing right through them. At first I was annoyed that Agatha, a 50-something year old woman, immediately falls in love with her handsome new neighbors. It happens in each book and she anxiously awaits them to ask her to marry her. These proposals don’t come. Her roughness, crankiness and her brusqueness don’t match her falling in love so quickly, but by the 14th book, I just find it humorous.
I truly have come to adore Agatha and I never thought I would. She annoyed me to no end in the first couple of books, but now she’s like an old friend.
I’m looking forward to the next one.
