The Plain Old Man: Kelling & Bittersohn Mysteries | [Charlotte MacLeod]

The Plain Old Man: Kelling & Bittersohn Mysteries

Sarah's Aunt Emma's theatre troupe is doing The Sorcerer, as Emma has always hankered to play Lady Sangazure. Perhaps she made a bad choice, though, by casting a well-connected con man in the title role. It's no mere evil spell that leaves Charlie Daventer dead on his bathroom floor. But the show must go on. Cousin Frederick is hurled into the breach. Old Fred really can't tolerate the general assumption that his friend Charlie died by accident. He convinces Sarah that murder has been committed.

Publisher's Summary

Sarah's Aunt Emma's theatre troupe is doing The Sorcerer, as Emma has always hankered to play Lady Sangazure. Perhaps she made a bad choice, though, by casting a well-connected con man in the title role.

It's no mere evil spell that leaves Charlie Daventer dead on his bathroom floor. But the show must go on.

Cousin Frederick is hurled into the breach. Old Fred really can't tolerate the general assumption that his friend Charlie died by accident. He convinces Sarah that a murder has been committed. Sarah's husband, Max the detective, is off in Finland, so she tackles the case herself.

Clues aren't hard to find and when Sarah sorts them out, she learns that when the curtain falls that the show is far from over....

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

    I have adored the gentle humour and delightful characters created by Charlotte Macleod for 30 years. To see them on Audible was a delightful walk down memory lane. The stories are witty, fast moving, quirky, and just twisty enough to keep you guessing until nearly the very end. Somewhere between Agatha Christie and Charlaine Harris ( think Miss Marple crossed with Aurora Teagarden), Sarah Kelling Kelling Bittersohn is a spunky girl with a whole host of colourful family members to entertain you as you traipse through old guard Boston's scandals, peccadillos, skeletons and drawing-rooms. The narrator strikes just the right tone to bring Sarah's fresh voice and determination to life. These are fast fun listens and will be on my list of winter yarns for many years to come.


    What does Andi Arndt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A good voice and solid interpretation of the stories.


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

    Chuckles a plenty!
