      I rather don’t like that cover. Neither dead body was dressed like that. I want a white sparkly gown. LOL

        Ha! I can look for a different one and swap tomorrow. It is a bit too cartoony.

    I finished 1/3 last night before bed. I am glad this won the re-read, as it’s such a strong plot. I remember most of it, but I’ve found a few surprises. 🙂

    Nice! i just finished this one last night. Question – would you consider The Body in the Library a cozy mystery?

      I struggle with it… I always called all of Christie’s novels as cozies, but I think with the evolution of the definition, it still fits broadly, but not quite perfectly. It doesn’t have the violence, gore, or sexual components, and it’s all light mystery, so I think it would.

        That makes sense. Thank you for clarifying! This is fairly new genre for me (cozy mysteries), so I wasn’t sure.
