When Lori Shepherd returns from her trip to America, she is shocked to hear that Prunella "Pruneface" Hooper has been killed. This is the first murder in the village of Finch in more than a century, and everyone is in an uproar.
Before the town implodes in the wake of this scandal, Lori sets out to solve the murder. Unfortunately, nearly everyone in Finch had a reason to want Mrs. Hooper dead. With the help of the ghostly Aunt Dimity and Nicholas, the enigmatic (and charming!) self-defense instructor, Lori aligns motive, means, and opportunity to unravel this delightfully tangled and gossip-filled whodunnit.

Nice story. Horrible performance
Great story, disappointingly narrated
Yes in terms of the story, no in terms of the narration. This narrator's slow and halting style when attempting any othr accent than her own (presumably) American is painful to listen to. Also, while it might be understandable for the American characters to mispronounce common UK words and place-mnames, it is jarring for the (uniformly badly accented) English characters to do the same.
Lori's trademark jumping to wild conclusions.
A narrator who can pronounce English words in an unstilted flow rather than just good American and cringingly bad anything else. This narator shoud not be narrating books involding non-american characters and settings.
Had never givien it any thought, but the English characters should be played by English actors, not Americans who THINK they can do credible English accents, and therer should be english advisors on the production.
