really liked it
bookshelves: mystery
Recommended for: Agatha Christie fans

A series of murders disturbs the quiet town of St. Mary Mead after a Hollywood actress and her retinue move into Gossington Hall. Christie renders her characters expertly with quick, deft strokes and a keen ear for dialog. And despite the "cozy" atmosphere, the characters have to deal with real-life problems (obnoxious do-gooders, crowded housing developments, the effects of aging and loss of independence, among others) as well as the murderer in their midst. Although the ultimate solution seemed a little hard to swallow, the story and characters kept me reading throughout. A very enjoyable Miss Marple mystery.
