Publisher's Summary

Suffering from bald patches thanks to a hair conditioner spiked with depilatory cream - supplied by the murderess in her last investigation - Agatha escapes to the coastal resort of Wyckhadden to allow her crowning glory to recover in privacy. A local witch provides her with hair tonic, and Agatha's lost locks begin to grow - but then the witch is found bludgeoned to death.
The elderly residents at Agatha's faded hotel seem innocuous enough, if a little odd. But, as she enquires into the murder, she turns up an alarming number of secrets....

Another Agatha!

What made the experience of listening to Agatha Raisin and the Witch of Wyckhadden the most enjoyable?

They do run along a sort of reliable format...I rather like that. I like the predictability of her stories. Penelope Keith knows when to raise Agatha's voice perfectly, much as I would do in my head were l reading it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Agatha!! There is no-one quite like her and a little bit of her in most of us. She is opinionated, self-serving, but also insecure and above all very, very funny :)

Which character – as performed by Penelope Keith – was your favourite?

Agatha!! Has to be, but you must imagine the accent is being affected rather than one she grew up with.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was rather upset that Agatha managed to ruin her chance of marrying a man who seemed to adore her :(

Any additional comments?

I love being in Agatha-Raisin land and very much hope that MC Beaton can keep up with me ;)

She is a one...

I enjoy the Agatha Raisin books. A lighthearted romp through implausible plot lines, populated by a regular cast of characters who are easily identifiable throughout the series and who display some all too human failings (some highly amusing and some irritating - as in life). All in all, pleasant escapism. I just prefer some storylines to others, hence the rating.
