How is this possible? A Christie title that I hadn’t read before? More of a thriller than a mystery, this book managed to be entertaining due to a very plucky protagonist, a murder, a great setting, and a burgeoning romance (or two). Despite all of this, sometimes I just couldn’t suspend my disbelief due to a very improbable plot.
