What can I say about this book? A wonderful read that I could not put down, like at all! A beautiful read, as its such a warm book, a good one to read if you missing summer. A fun thing about this story, I bought it as soon as I saw it in the shops. A week later, I got an email as I am on Cathy Bramleys email subscription list – telling me I needed to read this wonderful book! I was so happy to be ahead of the curve that day!
A sweet and bright tale that moves quickly and draws you in with its wonderfully beautiful characters.
If you can read this heart-warming story of a lady running from her past, with the intention of not getting too close to people, but eventually making some lovely friendships, without getting the urge to go out in the sunshine, start a garden and make new friends, are we even reading the same book?
Agatha Christie never fails to impress me, she really might be the Queen of Crime Writing. I chose this book for my online book club. I have read a couple of other Christies, that I have thoroughly enjoyed. The hardest but most satisfying and rewarding part of a book club, is sharing a book or an author with a group of people and not knowing if they are going to enjoy it as much as you. Thankfully, we are two books in and everyone has, I hope, enjoyed them. As this is a review for my book club, my review is going to be slightly different, I don’t usually go into synopsis much, or have to add spoilers but for this one, I am adding a *SPOILER ALERT*. If you have never read it and want to in the future, please stop reading now and come back when you’ve read it!
As soon as I started reading I instantly remembered why I love this book! It draws you in from the first line, for a short book the character development is incredible and I for one feel like I really got drawn into the story and taken a long for the ride.
Set amidst a village of gossips, family drama and mystery abound, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd tells a unique and intriguing tale which keeps you guessing until the very end. As an aficionado of detective stories, I like to think I am good at guessing the end, but I must admit, this one had me second guessing myself every few minutes.
“Hook” Hobie has a plan for when everything starts to go wrong. He has two parts in place, and he ignores both and decides to go for one last score. This was probably his only mistake.
