From the Whitcoulls remainder bin.
one of my favourite books and favourite authors
Ok, so I caught my own book back again... I thought I'd better actually try reading some Georgette Heyer, because I keep buying her books knowing that other bookcrossers like her, but then always seem to end up giving them away before I've read them myself!
another book didn't get release notes done in time,cat in now peeking out at me from shelf and has thrown books onto the floor.
A fun story that felt like a cross between Agatha Christie and PG Wodehouse (I was expecting Bertie Wooster to walk in at any moment). And just the right amount of mystery - I hate it when you work out who the murderer is half way through the book, and then have to wait for the detective to catch up, or even worse, when the denouement comes and you've got no idea how the detective worked it all out - with this book I'd settled finally on my preferred suspect only a few pages before the detective did, which is always a satisfying feeling.
