Death By The Book - A Review

A Review

Ms. Dodson leaves me feeling like I am reading a Murder She Wrote mystery written by Agatha Christie.  It combines the fun and humor of Murder She Wrote and the English culture of the early to mid 1900s to create a devilish clever crime spree - by the most creative of culprits.

The author has brought back the characters first introduced in her earlier book Rules of Murder.  Along with a number of new characters, including Aunt Ruth, a caring but meddling relative from England, the book held this readers attention for the past week.  

Though the book is not overwhelmingly Christian, faith plays a significant enough part in the story that the believer will be appreciative of the role faith plays in the life  of the various characters.  On the other hand, the non-believer will not fill as if he or she has been smothered in unrealistic pictures of the believer’s life.  I feel comfortable recommending the book to readers from a variety of backgrounds.

This review is based on a free electronic copy provided by the publisher for the purpose of creating this review.  The opinions expressed are mine alone.
