    1. Thanks Anbolyn! So nice not to see a cover with a chunk of naked dead woman on it too. Much cleverer.

    1. Thanks Lisa May - I love the little scalloping on the shelves, which I think indicates that it is a cosy mystery!

    1. Thanks Sarah - I'm wondering if I can squeeze a reread in before the end of the year.

  4. Oh, i like that! I haven't read much Christie, but I SHOULD. I've liked what I've read of hers and her own life is so fascinating.

    1. Christies are great comfort reads, I find - even a murder or two (or three, four, five) doesn't detract from the feeling of being wrapped in a comfy cardigan!
