The Man in the Brown Suit | Agatha Christie
post image
Pickpick

Just finished listening to this early Agatha Christie it‘s a one off mystery- no Poirot or Marple. Colonel Race is the only recurring Christie character to appear. I enjoyed the reader‘s voice work. A good mystery despite some cringey colonial ideas. Set in 1922 💚🐉

CarolynM I remember loving this one a long time ago🙂 2d

Finished listening to this cozy mystery set in small town Scotland. Iris is a portrait painter/ amateur sleuth hired to paint the local Baron‘s young American Fiancée with a side job of solving a poison pen mystery. The audiobook has an enthusiastic reader who loves doing accents - so the book is fun in that way. The story is predictable and there‘s a trigger warning for a crime against some cute dogs. So not recommended ??

Just finished listening to this cozy mystery- the second in a new series. The mystery revolves around a Teen beauty pageant- and our intrepid amateur sleuth manages to entice the reader with her wonderful food descriptions. I‘m so hungry right now🤣. Fun book a bit darker than the first book. 👍👍💚🐉

Just finished listening to this fascinating audiobook- read by the author. The rich are different! Lady Anne Glenconner brings her autobiography to life. Rubbing elbows with the Royals , the aristocracy and the famous- Lady Glenconner has a bucketful of interesting stories, especially about her three decades as Lady in Waiting to Princess Margaret. Her life has not been without sorrow and struggles- she doesn‘t shy away from sharing tragedy. 👍👍

November has brought rain and grey skies ( October was light and colour) so hunkered down to re-listen to a favourite historical romance. Really not a lot of plot in this one but Cassandra and Tom , two of my favourite supporting characters, step into the limelight. It‘s a pleasure to hear this book read by one of my favourite voices. 👍👍💚🐉

Just finished this ebook on the Libby App and I can‘t wait for the next installment. This is a fresh new take on the cozy mystery- the sleuth is Claudia a bike riding millennial working in New York City‘s tech industry- matchmaking algorithms and verification ancillaries etc. New terms and scary concepts abound and lots of side plots involving Claudia‘s family and friends. Two thumbs up 👍 👍 for a great inclusive story

DebinHawaii I loved it too! One of my favorites for the year! 🤗 1mo
Dragon Thanks @DebinHawaii - I see why it‘s such fun to meet Claudia‘s family and friends- I hope there will be a second book soon. 💚🐉 1mo

I‘m in the midst of a massive declutter campaign- it‘s taking a long time - it‘s hard to say goodbye to some “things” : I‘ve been listening to audiobooks- I wanted books that were quite light but not too engaging. Pleasant characters with not too much going on -to start the process. These books met the requirements: low picks - I wouldn‘t re-listen to them. 🐉💚

Aimeesue Those are exactly the kinds of books I pick to do chores by. Mine are usually "audiobooks for dog walking" ? Well put. 1mo

Just finished listening to the 3rd book in The Thursday Murder Club - another fun mystery. Elizabeth, Joyce and the gang have a new murder to investigate - the short chapters and the different points of view make such a compelling story . There‘s a great interview with the author at the end of the audiobook. Bogdan is still my favourite 💚🐉

tpixie @Dragon what a nice surprise!! my sister and I just went on vacation together in August to Upstate New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. She had so much fun. She wants me to plan another trip. We‘re hoping to go to Victoria British Columbia in the fall. So maybe we can sneak over to Vancouver and try to find it! (edited) 1mo
Dragon @tpixie - I live in Victoria and the picture of the ferry ⛴ was taken on the Victoria side. The fall is usually lovely here although we‘ve had a drought so the rains may be coming soon. The doorway was a few blocks from Broadway- just after the high school on Trafalgar- W Broadway is a great walking street- more locals than tourists 💚🐉 1mo

This is the first in a cozy mystery series set in post war London. Gwen and Iris have opened a marriage bureau - of course a client is murdered and naturally they want to solve the crime.

I liked the characters in this book Medelin Chan and her Aunties are fun and quirky . I really enjoyed a glimpse into the lives of this Family. But the mystery was a bit of a dud - not impressed with the wrap up. But I will look forward to reading the next book in the series. So low pick. 💚🐉

This is definitely a #blameitonLitsy read. A fun mystery, I think it‘s a cozy, involving a single mom who through a series of unfortunate events becomes a “hitman” sort of.

Needed a #romantsy break this weekend so immersed myself in this romance. I was a bit disappointed as it was more a Lady Di and Prince Charles story than a War of the Roses story. The strife between the York and Lancaster Houses was hinted at but not fleshed out convincingly. The scenes with magic seemed awkward and out of place. The book did keep my interest and it did provide my favourite an HEA ending. I‘m not sure I would recommend it
