Or, how I spent yesterday. 🙂
Murder Through the English Post by Jessica Ellicott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This 6th addition to the series has been a joy to listen to. Combined with a poison pen letter mystery is a bit of introspection by all of the main characters. When you consider that Beryl has only been at the Beaches less than a year, a lot has happened since the beginning of the series.
The letter mystery is beautifully crafted – I had no idea until the very end. I also thought the solution was quite unique, at least I’ve not encountered anything similar.
As for the individual characters, Ellicott has once again brought each into focus and reminded us of where we started. The pleasure of these books is the way the characters, and the stories, are crafted. There is a clear deliberation on every detail that creates a lovely tapestry of the location, time, and people. And the dog!
Yes, each book can be read on its own, but I strongly urge new readers to start at the beginning and work their way forward. They won’t be disappointed.
