Delicious Murder Mystery

This is my favorite Ann Granger mystery. It is a simply delicious village cozy featuring an old deteriorating estate house, poison, a mysterious relative and murder. Great fun.

A quiet story in a quiet place

I've listened to 3 stories by this author, and this was in the middle in terms of my pleasure in it. The story itself is fairly tame, with a mystery that's interesting without being compelling. I enjoyed getting to know some of the characters. I have problems with this narrator -- find the voice hard to follow, and a bit too distracting, and I didn't care for her accent when reading the villain's parts.
