Short detective stories by Agatha Christie, usually with a romantic element.

Fun, but they don't really demonstrate her talent for plotting. ( )

An enjoyable enough read for a Sunday afternoon. A few of the short stories were nice. But mostly the twist/climax came before we could really care about the protagonists. ( )

Great collection of well written short stories ( )

A collection of short stories illustrating the quirkiness of situations and characters.
Enjoyable reading - light relief between more demanding works. ( )
  rosiezbanks | May 1, 2014 |
I don't remember a thing about this book. Short stories, none of them remarkable but enough to keep me reading to the end. ( )
