Publisher's Summary

Hoping to make a clean break from a fractured marriage, Agatha Christie boards the Orient Express in disguise. But unlike her famous detective Hercule Poirot, she can't neatly unravel the mysteries she encounters on this fateful journey.
Agatha isn't the only passenger on board with secrets. Her cabinmate Katharine Keeling's first marriage ended in tragedy, propelling her toward a second relationship mired in deceit. Nancy Nelson - newly married but carrying another man's child - is desperate to conceal the pregnancy and teeters on the brink of utter despair. Each woman hides her past from the others, ferociously guarding her secrets. But as the train bound for the Middle East speeds down the track, the parallel courses of their lives shift to intersect - with lasting repercussions.
Filled with evocative imagery, suspense, and emotional complexity, The Woman on the Orient Express explores the bonds of sisterhood forged by shared pain and the power of secrets.

I just can't

I'm not very far through the book I'm probably around chapter 5 and it is so very dry. I just can't get into it thankfully it was a Kindle unlimited book so I did not have to pay for this title. unfortunately it's just not my cup of tea.

Biographical fiction

I enjoyed this biographical fiction of Agatha Christie until the author decided to emphasize romance over characterization. The melodramatic finale kinda ruined the story. I really like this narrator, and she did a good job with this.
