Retired octogenarian schoolteacher Myrtle Clover is fit to be tied when her book club votes to change to a supper club. Who wants chips and dip when they can have Dickens and Twain?
The first supper club is a progressive dinner... where Myrtle loses interest during the hors d'oeuvres. But when a body is discovered during the main course, the evening quickly gets interesting. Myrtle pits her sleuthing skills against her police chief son's to find the killer.... if the killer doesn't find her first.

If you like listening to a lot of gossipy small town women then you'll like these mysteries. This one was a little better than the first one because of the antics of Ms. Clover's feral cat who had taken a shine to her and would bring her first presents and then other creatures to try to teach Ms. Clover on how to hunt.
Like the first one Ms. Clover goes around gathering gossip so she can figure out who the murderer is, trying to beat her son, the police chief, to the punch. You never hear exactly how she figured it out until she's explaining it to the police.
It's an easy listen and the narrator does a pretty good job.
Nothing. I probably should have realized from the publisher's summary that it would be boring. Just not for me. I couldn't relate to any of the characters.
