Charlotte MacLeod is my favorite cozy mystery writer. I have read Rest You Merry and the other books in the Peter Shandy series a number of times - I wouldn't change anything.
As other reviewers have noted, the narrator pronounced certain words very strangely, to the extent that I'm not sure if he is a native English speaker. This audio book was less of a performance and more of a straight reading of the novel by someone who didn't really know what it was about or who the characters were supposed to be. You need a very particular kind of narrator for a cozy mystery that gets its color from quirky, not-quite-realistic characters and stylized, old-fashioned dialogue, and unfortunately Mr. McLain doesn't quite hit the mark.
