Notes from that book so far (and I did not highlight some mansplaining...)

Mehso-so

This starts out as a fun adventure, but turns into pure silliness in the back half.

A very engaging read! This is a non-Poirot/Marple book but full of suspects and interesting twists, as you would expect. A death ruled suicide, letters suggesting it was murder, a very small suspect pool, a trap set, a trap foiled. A successful solution. Ah.
Well done, Agatha.

A solid #pantone2022 read - and the color name #innuendo is wonderfully fitting 😉

LeahBergen Lovely review! 4mo

“Girls derive a lot of comfort from ice-cream sodas.”

mabell I love this book so much! ❤️ 6mo
batsy Verified fact, yes 😆 6mo
Michael_Gee @batsy haha! Love it! 6mo
Michael_Gee @mabell Did I see that you frequently reread this? I finished it and think I‘d like to reread. At a certain point I stopped trying to figure out the mystery element because I was just enjoying the characters so much. 6mo
mabell Oh yes, I reread this all the time 😆 I enjoy the adventure, and the characters are so perfect - Anne, Suzanne, Sir Eustace. I just love to escape and be a part of their exploits. 😊 It‘s also why Secret at Chimneys is one of my favorites too. 6mo

Ok, some tipsy bath-time in-progress thoughts on this book I didn‘t know existed until I got it for my b-day: 1) The prologue is totally unnecessary and embarrassingly full of exposition-via-unnatural-dialogue, 2) I love Mrs. Blair—Christie does fabulous so well. I like Sir Eustace too but his diary portions are redundant 3) there was a revelation about the MC being in love that really confuses me b/c it wasn‘t set up in any way. ????

SRWCF Awesome! I've never read Agatha Christie before. Lucky for me, my local thrift store had about 10 of her books, and I snatched them all up for $0.75 each yesterday. I can't wait to read my first one! 6mo
Vansa This is one of her best books. 6mo
Andrew65 @SRWCF should have 10 treats ahead. 6mo
Andrew65 @Vansa Would agree. 6mo

This one was told in a different format than other Christie novels. Starts out with people‘s remembrances of Rosemary and the day she died. Then, it gets into a mystery of whether she died by suicide or maybe murder. Hints are dropped about who, but it‘s harder to figure out how events happened. Colonel Race is investigating.
