Publisher's Summary

At home alone for the holidays, Agatha Raisin decides to host a dinner party for the elder residents in her Cotswold village of Winter Parva. Agatha's never been much of a homemaker, but she's dead set on making this the perfect holiday for the 'crumblies', as she affectionately calls them. She's decorated a tree while fending off her cats, Hodge and Boswell, and even made a (lumpy) Christmas pudding in between swigs of rum. But when Agatha dumps the pudding on the head of the local self-proclaimed lothario - an 85-year-old with a beer belly and fingers like sausages - his death by dessert proves more than a trifle as mysteries mount higher than the season's snowfall. So much for trying to do good by her neighbors. Now Agatha needs no less than a Christmas miracle to get herself out of this one.

Funny and enjoyable.

Penny Keith read the story incredibly well and her accents for each of the characters made the interaction of each person unique and more real.

A quick book to walk a dog too for the 1hr10 and you could be rewarded with the Done and Dusted merit badge for the stats.

My first interaction with Agatha Raisin and will have to consider engaging with her again in another book.

A serving of festive fun

An amusing short that passed a long journey through the Highlands in an enjoyable fashion, narrated with aplomb by the lovely Penelope Keith. Quite an abrupt ending but enjoyable nonetheless.
