Second in the series, do not read out of order.
It occurred to me that these books are re-do's of Lord Peter Wimsey books, at least in terms of overall theme. I was left with the VERY strong impression that some kind of computer program either wrote this book or aided in the writing. It's okay. I love Davina Porter and will listen to her narrate just about anything. Without her, this is not worth the credit. If you love her, it is.

Where does Death and the Lit Chick rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Hmm. Among British cozy mysteries, it's right up there - a 10, I'd say. Good cast of characters, and, as an earlier reviewer mentioned, they are introduced in a very digestible way so I can remember everyone.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Magretta Simcock, aka Greensleeves, because she is a demanding, colorful, older woman with lots of character.
Have you listened to any of Davina Porter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes, I forget which ones. This one was ok, but she didn't really manage the American accent well, and, at times, I couldn't tell when a character was thinking or actually talking. Otherwise, she was good.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I LAUGHED. I enjoyed the characters, and the mystery very much. Good tale, with great (and hilarious) characters. Really really liked this one.
Any additional comments?
A delightful cast of characters makes this book. This is my third G.M. Malliet book, and I've enjoyed them all. The "Seasonal" Max Tudor books seem to move faster (a bit), but the St. Just books (this is the second) are slower but more...complex and satisfying.

I was enjoying this book until the last hour - the murder was cleverly solved by the detective largely using clues we were never privy to. I at least would like to try and solve a mystery for myself....
