When sharp-tongued, Mathilda dies in her home with a scold's bridle over her head, it looks like an apparent suicide, but the detective assigned to the case doesn't think it really is a suicide. Mathilda's GP, Dr. Sarah Blakeney is another that doesn't believe Mathilda would kill herself. After meeting Mathilda's daughter and granddaughter, both the detective and Sarah are even less inclined to believe the old women would kill herself. After the will is read, everything people thought they knew about Mathilda, change.
This was a well paced thriller that goes from the beauty of a doctors care to the cruelty within in a single family with too many secrets. Well written and read, this was an enjoyable mystery that will keep you guessing with all the twists.

Would you listen to The Scold's Bridle again? Why?
Not again but was well worth listening to one time. The story is good but sometimes I was unsure what the author wanted me to feel for the main character, although perhaps that was the point.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
It wasn't exciting but isn't wasn't predictable either.
What does Sharon Williams bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I have read the book. I found Sharon Williams voices to be very entertaining. She does an upper class voice like no other!
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No, the book just toddles along. Enjoyable to listen to but did not evoke any particular emotion.
