    Story
    "Nice old fashioned mystery"

    Not as intricate or surprising as some of Wentworth's other mysteries, but a good, well wrought cozy with old fashioned values. If you want to settle back, relax, and listen to a typical Wentworth mystery with some agreeable plot twists and gimlet-eyed characterizations of the baddies, you'll overlook the drippy, weak heroine and enjoy the story for what it is. If you're a Wentworth addict like me and you've already gobbled up The Watersplash, The Clock Strikes Twelve, The Silent Pool, The Key, and the Ivory Dagger, which are more substantive and inventive, then you will probably be quite content with this more modest yet certainly entertaining offering.

    "Another good Wentworth story!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would recommend this book to a friend. It is well read and although there are no suprises, it is a good story.


    What other book might you compare The Alington Inheritance to and why?

    I have only recently "discovered" the Patricia Wentworth books and have to say I am delighted with them. So far they have all been very different - not the usual sameness about them that other authors seem to have.


    Have you listened to any of Diana Bishop’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Diana Bishop has read all of the Patricia Wentworth books I have listened to so far and she manages to make them interesting, have a good understanding of the different characters and great expression.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, the scene where the herione accidentally overheard the critical conversation and her emotions.


    Any additional comments?

    I am hoping that Audible can manage to obtain the complete set of Patricia Wentworth books if they are as good as the ones currently available.
