My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Back to basics! I switched from modern cozies and crime fiction to a supposed blast from the past. I remembered a few PD James novels I read in college as part of my mystery fiction independent studies and decided to start the series.
As expected, very reminiscent of Agatha Christie but with a little more modern appeal. I enjoyed the characters and premise for a traditional whodunit!
I also like the wrap up of all the main characters in the end, as well as that at least one of them is seen again in future novels (no spoilers here!).
If you’re a traditional mystery buff, or have an avid whodunit interest, you may be able to figure the culprit on your own, but rest assured, it’s not as simple as X did it the candlestick in the library!
