This was an enjoyable reread! A hint of the truth started coming to me from previous reads, but it was still a very satisfying denouement.

Couldn‘t get into it! After Father Brown and Sherlock, just couldn‘t do a Poirot short story. Trying a Christie novel next.

"... I always find it prudent to suspect everybody just a little."
This, Christie's book that first features Miss Marple, is my first experience with her. A bit of a mixed bag. I liked the amateur detective aspect of it, although at times it felt like the entire village was trying to solve the murder. I also appreciated the cynical tone, reminiscent of one of my personal favorites "Crooked House." A clever ending though. I am planning on ?

vivastory continuing with the Miss Marple series, although I think my personal preference will always be for Poirot. 4d

This was Miss Marple‘s last case. I kind of guessed who the killer was, but I have to admit, I loved the way it was written - the descriptions, dialogue, and suspense show a lot of growth from Ms. Marple‘s first case.

Reading Agatha Christie at the Fogg Museum in good company - John Singer Sargent‘s sister Violet painted here reading at breakfast while peeling an orange. So many of memories of lovely places I‘ve enjoyed a good book!

Ruthiella I do like it when I can remember exactly where I was reading a certain book! 😀 6d

Got this book for 50 cents! It‘s two in one - Miss Marple‘s last case and then her first case. That weirded me out, so I read the second story (her first case) first to keep it chronological. This one was interesting because it was told in the first person point of view of an innocent party, and not Ms. Marple. Now to read the first half!

Short and sweet Poirot! A classic detective story, more of a switcheroo than anything. I did like the holiday setting, though!

This was good, not my favorite Miss Marple but a quick read. The solution was a bit tenuous but overall it was entertaining. #wintergames @FantasyChick

I was able to squeeze in 1 more book before the New Year! I listened to this quick short story by Agatha Christie.

It was a very quick and fun mystery of Hercule Poirot

Final reading time for #24B42020 is 14 hours (I accidentally left my timer on after I finished the audio book 🤦‍♀️, luckily I looked at the time before I started!)

Happy New Year everyone! Stay safe 💚
