If you like traditional English murder mysteries, then you should get this book. The story takes place at a manor house turned hotel. In order to save the family home, Midge and her husband Reggie, begin hosting a series of murder weekends for people from the states. The story starts off slow, but picks up after the characters are developed. Babson does a very good job recreating the 1930's golden age of mystery. As I listened to the story I completely forgot that the story takes place in modern times.
What I don't like about the story is how everything gets wrapped quickly and conveniently at the end of the story. I also felt like there were some things that didn't get solved. I don't want to give away the story so I won't go into detail. However, after reading this story, I might read a classic mystery instead of my usual contemporary cozy mystery.

Any additional comments?
Because this is an Audible book meant to be heard, not read, the multiple characters, many of whom are playing a different character become muddled together. The sole narrator did his best, I suppose, but his female characters sounded similar to each other. The story line is preposterous, ponderous and the only sympathetic character in the book was the house cat. Please don't waste your time on this book. I wasted 6 hours of my life on it. don't make that mistake.
