Suddenly, she’s found dead and what follows is the mystery and investigation of her murder. In steps Detective Poirot, ready to investigate and solve the mystery.
It had been a long time since I’d read an Agatha Christie book, and I picked this one up on a whim. Unfortunately, this book wasn’t as good as I’d expected. The plot felt repetitive and the characters weren’t all that interesting. It was hard to get past that, since a lot of characters were investigated for the crime.
While this story didn’t necessarily make me want to read more in this series, I still enjoyed it overall. This was a good one for Halloween weekend 🎃.
