The Division Bell Mystery | Ellen Wilkinson

Clever and very readable, this mystery didn‘t deserve to be forgotten- especially when you realise it was written by an early female MP so it‘s jammed with insider details about the Houses of Parliament!

CarolynM Love the sound of this. Stacked. 4w
Verity @CarolynM it‘s a Parliament geeky delight - but not actually about politics - which is nice! 3w

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ A gripping Victorian #whodunnit that will keep you guessing to the end. Based on the real life 1843 murder of 24yr old Harriet Monckton. The story is told from four POV of the main suspects, each with secrets to keep and a strong motive for murder. The novel has an excellent afterword by the author detailing her research.

Anna40 Picked it up from the library today. Looking forward to reading it. :) 2w

veritysalter @Crazeedi I‘m about halfway through, I‘m enjoying it. It‘s based on a true Victorian murder - I‘m still guessing #whodunnit and using all my willpower not to google it! 1mo

Day 27 - #CharacterWithFlair #DearDecember #IntroducingTheHonourablePhryneFisher #KerryGreenwood

Unflappable, unconventional, and uninhibited, the Honourable Phryne Fisher leaves the tedium of English high society for Melbourne, Australia, and never looks back. In her first three adventures, Phryne handles everything―danger, excitement, and love―with panache and flair, and still finds time for discreet dalliances and delicious diversions.

Eggs Absolutely ❣️ 2mo
Lynnsoprano I have this collection, and loved it. This reminds me that I need to get back to this series. 2mo
EadieB @Lynnsoprano It is a good series! 2mo

This is my November real-life book club choice, & though this one won the unanimous vote, I really wanted to bail on it! The characters are all unlikable; the plot holds only one surprise. The scenes skip around disjointedly which only makes it harder to connect with this book! I thought this sounded fun, but there‘s literally nothing fun at all here! I hate to write a bad review, but hopefully that it will lead to a lively book club discussion!

cathipink Sorry this was a blerg book, but I love your shirt/blanket/fabric behind it 🙂 4mo
TorieStorieS @cathipink Thanks!! It‘s a t-shirt! Gotta sport some #bookwear! ☺️ 4mo

1. I‘ve never really read an entire series before this year, but I‘m currently working my way through the entire Phryne Fisher series;

2. I don‘t have one at the moment. The ones I did like have all gone off the boil for the last two or three series, so I‘m only watching stuff like Bake Off and Strictly

3. No. I‘m English, I barely even know what the World Series is!

4. Chicken and chips this evening.

5. Yes

Fire in the Thatch | E.C.R. Lorac

Aaaah, I loved the character of the victim as described in the first couple of chapters, so I got surprisingly invested in this one. Lorac's good at a slow unfolding of the mystery that ends up satisfying anyway; definitely more in the procedural line, detective-wise.
