A new suspense-themed housing tract on the edge of the Mojave Desert is about to open, and who better to help promote the Cotswold-cozy development than mystery biographer extraordinaire Cece Caruso?
For the grand opening weekend, Cece is staging a play featuring the beloved sleuth Miss Marple. Of course, everything goes wrong, including a leading lady who ends up dead. All is not well in Christietown; its secrets are as complicated as the truth behind Agatha Christie's real-life disappearance. The developer, an Englishman who claims to be Dame Agatha's descendent, has ruthless investors breathing down his neck.
Meanwhile, Cece's got a wedding to plan, a baby shower to give, and an ex-husband who shows up on her doorstep with his fiance and future mother-in-law. And when another body surfaces, the intrepid amateur sleuth knows she must play the famed detective for real or suffer the same mysterious fate.

Maybe. I am only 2 1/2 hours into this book. So far, I like the story, though it is a bit slow going, but that might be the narrator and not the story. Now sure about that yet.

Also, the producer and directors both need to be examined to find out if they know anything about the English language.Mangling Poirot's name is not the only oddly pronounced word in the book. I could overlook the idiosyncrasies of odd pronunciation EXCEPT on words that the production staff and reader should have known. This
So far, my only extreme reaction has been to the bad reading and not to elements of the plot or characters.
I am convinced that bad narration does more harm to an author than bad writing. I'm not sure I will continue with other books in this series if they are by the same reader. Too bad, because I think I might actually like the plots and characters.
