Publisher's Summary

A new suspense-themed housing tract on the edge of the Mojave Desert is about to open, and who better to help promote the Cotswold-cozy development than mystery biographer extraordinaire Cece Caruso?

For the grand opening weekend, Cece is staging a play featuring the beloved sleuth Miss Marple. Of course, everything goes wrong, including a leading lady who ends up dead. All is not well in Christietown; its secrets are as complicated as the truth behind Agatha Christie's real-life disappearance. The developer, an Englishman who claims to be Dame Agatha's descendent, has ruthless investors breathing down his neck.

Meanwhile, Cece's got a wedding to plan, a baby shower to give, and an ex-husband who shows up on her doorstep with his fiance and future mother-in-law. And when another body surfaces, the intrepid amateur sleuth knows she must play the famed detective for real or suffer the same mysterious fate.

    "just ok"

    I bought this entire series based on a few of the reviews and probably won't listen to them all. There's not much to these stories but the main character Cece is a hoot. Probably good for listening to when you are not going to be able to concentrate (airport, DMV) but they didn't really grab me during my commute.

    SuseADoodle - "Audiobook Addict!" - Please disregard my "guided" reviews since it appears that a lot of what I wrote has been chopped off.

    "BAAAAAAAD Narrator"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Maybe. I am only 2 1/2 hours into this book. So far, I like the story, though it is a bit slow going, but that might be the narrator and not the story. Now sure about that yet.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Christietown?

    When I finish the book I will come back to answer this one.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Dina Pearlman’s performances?

    NO! I am sorry but any reader who cannot pronounce Hercule Poirot's name correctly does not belong in this business. Also, the producer and directors both need to be examined to find out if they know anything about the English language.Mangling Poirot's name is not the only oddly pronounced word in the book. I could overlook the idiosyncrasies of odd pronunciation EXCEPT on words that the production staff and reader should have known. This


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    So far, my only extreme reaction has been to the bad reading and not to elements of the plot or characters.


    Any additional comments?

    I am convinced that bad narration does more harm to an author than bad writing. I'm not sure I will continue with other books in this series if they are by the same reader. Too bad, because I think I might actually like the plots and characters.
