Not worth the listen

I love a good cozy mystery. I love English house parties. I love a gentle send up of English manners and class. Given all of this I thought this is would be a lovely diversion, It wasn't. The main character wasn't sympathetic at all, the plot was extremely thin, and there is no character development at all. Frankly the whole mess was just tiresome. I only finished listening to it yesterday, and already I cannot recall the denouement. Really a very forgettable and not enjoyable book. There are others in this genre which are so, so much better. The narrator was good though. She did her best with lacklustre narrative and dialogue.

Enjoyable Quiet Read

This was a listen full of what I assume are genuine details from wealthy England in the 1920s. It was a little disappointing that there was so much build up to the mystery and then a simple, very-few-embellishments resolution. The buildup was worth it, though, and I intend to read and listen to more in this series. This narrator did a nice job and was a pleasant voice in my ear throughout this audiobook.
