How to Murder Your Mother-In-Law | [Dorothy Cannell]

How to Murder Your Mother-In-Law

Ellie's mum-in-law Magdalene has moved in permanently and poor Ellie finds herself up to her formerly fat neck in crocheted doilies and cheap statues of Catholic saints. As Magdalene runs her finger over every surface in Merlin's Court (checking, undoubtedly, for dust), Eillie discovers that she isn't the only woman in Chitterdon Fells with the ultimate mother-in-law problem.

Publisher's Summary

The Thin Woman - Ellie Haskell - is back in the most mischievous, marvelous mystery to hit the marital pike yet.

Ellie's mum-in-law Magdalene has moved in permanently and poor Ellie finds herself up to her formerly fat neck in crocheted doilies and cheap statues of Catholic saints. As Magdalene runs her finger over every surface in Merlin's Court (checking, undoubtedly, for dust), Eillie discovers that she isn't the only woman in Chitterdon Fells with the ultimate mother-in-law problem - three others are experiencing the same living hell.

One tipsy evening, four imaginary plots to bump off the resident in-laws are hatched and those plots start coming lethally true in real life. Ellie once again plunges into a desperate chase to outwit a killer.

    "Truly annoying listen"
    What would have made How to Murder Your Mother-In-Law better?

    A different narrator


    Would you ever listen to anything by Dorothy Cannell again?

    Yes


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    American trying to be British, and failing.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was a Dorothy Cannell, but anything mother-in-law related has potential to grate. I may try to read this one instead.


    Any additional comments?

    First Audible out of dozens that I've actually returned.

    "Couldn't get past the narrators accent"

    I liked the story line, but just couldn't get past the narrators voice. I don't know if this is her real accent or not, but it just sounded fake, and didn't go with my idea of the main character at all. The accents of the other characters was awful! I couldn't finish it.
