SPOILER ALERT..!! Read Them In Order

Why in the world the author chose to completely disclose the entire synopsis and solution to her previous book throughout this one is beyond me..
Not everyone reads the first book in the series before finding one that just catches their eye.. then,.. if Good they’ll usually back up and start from the beginning and go in order.. It was incredibly disappointing that she didn’t stop to think she might be shooting herself in the foot for future sales..
Bummer....sigh...

Light

This was ok. Lighter than I expected but good pace and interesting storyline and characters. Not sure I was really interested in the rescued girl story. It was a bit dull.

There were several candidates for the murder. The tone did change near the end as if written by someone else. But it was a good listen.

The only thing was the narrator's voice for narration and heroine - like a 6 year old - too childish.

Modern-day Miss Marple

This is an easygoing tale incorporating village life, family complications and a whodunnit; a bit of a modern-day Miss Marple but somehow not so believable.

I found it a hard to buy into Julia’s character, especially her being far more astute than the detective. Had it been a longer book I’d probably have given up on it but since I did actually finish I gave the story 3* rather than 2*

Jilly Bond’s narration was excellent, as always.
