It doesn’t get more classic or cozier than Agatha Christie! This whodunit takes you to the islands, where Miss Marple is staying in a beautiful resort. But is all as idyllic as it seems?

I'm not normally a Miss Marple fan, but I really liked this one. Normally Miss Marple is too passive a detective for my liking, but she really showed spunk in this one. They mystery was decent and interesting and I really liked the background characters. Emilia Fox did a great job narrating this audiobook. I'm going to have to pay attention to the narrators for Miss Marple books. I'd listen to another one narrated by her because I think she gives life to Miss Marple. ( )

Miss Marple is chilling out in the West Indies, knitting and dabbling her toes in the sea — oh, and solving murders. As one does on vacation. You can tell this is a later Marple because there's plenty of talk about S-E-X, but Marple still remains above it all. I must say, though, that I found it difficult to read Christie's affectionate descriptions of Miss Marple as a "sweet old pussy" without having Donald Trump flashbacks. Wonder if he's ever read any Miss Marple ... ? ( )

"Would you like to see a picture of a murderer?" So asks a stranger of Miss Jane Marple while she is vacationing on luxurious St. Honore. Before she has a chance to answer, the mystery man vanishes, only to be found dead the following day. Now Miss Marple is asking the questions: What happened to the curious photo: Why is the hotelier prone to nightmares? Why doesn't the most-talked-about guest, a reclusive millionaire, ever leave his room? Any why is Miss Marple fearing for her own life?… (more)
