My weekend read. The latest Miss Dimont mystery is set in the 1950s on the Devon coast.
🎪
A clash between a posh hotel and the nearby rough-and-tumble holiday camp escalates and everyone is on edge. 📝
A woman turns up dead and Miss Dimont shows up with her reporter‘s notebook determined to get to the truth.

I found parts of this book to be slow moving and rambling that, at times I wished that the story would hurry up and move along. Upon finishing this novel, I still felt a little unfulfilled somewhat. I much preferred Ruth Ware's other publication:"The Woman in Cabin 10"
This was a nice little mystery but nothing amazing. 3 * stars out of 5.
What did you think?

As always, Alan Bradley comes through with this Flavia de Luce novel. Flavia, whose precocious, hyper-intelligent voice is the shining star of the novel, becomes involved in a mystery that places her chemistry knowledge at its center. I listened to this one on @scribd, and the reader is *excellent*. And what a cliffhanger!!!

JazzFeathers How are you liking it? I bailed 1/3 through 😶 13mo
SaraRosett @jazzfeathers Finally finished it. It took me a while. Life got busy and the story didn‘t grip me. I thought the characters‘ attitude toward bereaved families going on tours of the battlefields and cemeteries in Europe was a bit harsh. I can understand how it might bring closure. Not sure why the characters looked down on families who took the tours. 12mo
JazzFeathers @SaraRosett Yeah, the main characters' attitude toward the war, Veterans and people trying to cope was one of the things that put me off. I find the psychological not very realistic (not to mention sympathetic). The heaviness of the romance wasn't for me too, but l could have endured it if the historical environment had been more understanding. 12mo

Murder of My Aunt | Richard Hull

Delicious! This was originally published in 1934 but it still reads well today. Edward‘s diary is a treat. Over the course of the book, you learn that he and his aunt are both strong willed and determined to have their way. Silent adversaries if you will. This was a finely crafted, delectable mystery. Such a perfect ending! Will look for more of Hull‘s work.
