Not sure what it wants to be

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would recommend it to somebody who was reasonably well read in the crime genre but with a warning that a large pinch of salt may be required.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The most noticeable for me had little to do with the story. Rather the author's dislike for long engagements. Couples meet, fall in love and marry within hours! This is a feature of this author's books. Some of the depictions of the young women are very annoying to a modern woman

What three words best describe Diana Bishop’s performance?

Diana Bishop's performance is consistent, matches the story and listenable.

Any additional comments?

Overall this book (and the others in the series) are of their time. Women frequently "burst into tear", "start to cry" etc but if you can get past the mush, the whodunnit bits are ok.

Patricia Wentworth true to form

The Miss Silver stories are easy listening. She gets to a point in every story that you know she knows who did it and helps you to learn who.
