The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie


The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
View all my reviews





What a delight to read!! I must admit that about midway, I had an inkling as to whodunit, which really kept me reading. If my idea was right, I needed the motive, which I couldn’t figure, so I occasionally doubted my thoughts. Nevertheless, my curiosity and interest stayed high, keeping my nose in the pages.

A Feigned Madness by Tonya   Mitchell
"This book was excellent! Definitely was a great Halloween read. Sad that this is the reality of insane asylums at the time but important to write about as well. "

Tonya Hello, Pat. I could have sworn I'd replied earlier to your email here. It's such a very nice note. I hope your year's going very well. I did indeed finish Gloria Copeland's book and thoroughly enjoyed it. Highly recommended. Take care and I look forward to staying in touch with you. Warmly, Tonya Rice
