The Listerdale Mystery and Eleven Other Stories - Agatha Christie, Hugh Fraser

"The Listerdale Mystery" - Finished with this first story. A mystery turned

surprise romance (although not that much of a surprise)

(show spoiler)

. It was okay, I guess. Insubstantial but sweet, as long as you don't think about it too much. Maybe 3 stars? I'm going to try rating these one at a time and average all the story ratings up at the end.


Next up is "The Rajah's Emerald." It offends my sense of order that the back of the audiobook case does not actually list the stories in the order that they happen on the discs. According to the back of the case, this should be the second-to-last story. Argh.
