I love crafts and the cinema and talking to people. I listen to audible on my PC whilst crafting and on my phone in the car.
I must admit I got a little lost in the relationships of all the characters so didn't guess the ending but it is a great story full of little tableau to make you smile or chuckle out loud.
"I love this book"
I got this book because I never read a Blackburn mystery. I liked it more than I thought.
"Well written; well read"
A most engrossing plot, neatly and clearly unfolded with intrigue. The logical resolution keeps the listener engrossed and guessing right to the end.
I did like listening to this story and was reminded of Miss Marple a little. Enjoyable.
