I thoroughly enjoyed this listen. A fun, feel good mystery with some restrained romance. Being a huge Downton Abbey fan, this story reminded me a bit of that, with the upstairs downstairs vibe- but with some Sherlock Holmes added in. The main characters are very likable, and I’m a huge sucker for the Agatha Christie-esque the murderer is someone in this very room feeling.
It’s part of a short John Picket mystery series, and I am going to continue.
As a disclaimer, I didn’t read the first one, but I didn’t feel lost, as any missed information was filled in in the story.
And I have to say– the narrator was FANTASTIC! Joel Froomkin made me forget as he voiced the female roles that it was actually a man reading the book! That’s not easy to do. I would listen to more books by this narrator as well!
Listen (or read) for a fun easy feel good read.
