Hello book lovers!
This week, I'll be discussing my second Miss Marple read, A Caribbean Mystery!
A Caribbean Mystery (Miss Marple #9) by Agatha Christie
The sunny island of Saint Honore is just what Miss Marple needed to relax.
But evil doesn't rest. And when Major Palgrave dies suddenly, Miss Marple knows her vacation is over. The detective was sure that the major's death was murder, and if she didn't act quickly, it would not be the last...
Many of you who have been keeping up with AZE for the last couple of months know that my first experience with Miss Marple did not go well. I read Murder at the Vicarage, the first book in the Marple series, a couple of months ago and was quite disappointed. Although the storyline was intriguing, the characters in the novel were mundane and uninteresting- making the novel boring and drawn out.
(For my full review of Murder at the Vicarage visit:
Luckily, this time around, it was a completely different experience. A Caribbean Mystery was a gripping novel filled with riveting plot twists. Unlike Murder at the Vicarage, the characters featured in this book were vibrant, bold, and memorable.
I also found that this Marple read was similar to Evil Under the Sun (Hercule Poirot #24). Both books, although in different series, took place on an island and featured fascinating characters. Despite this, I loved A Caribbean Mystery because it was captivating and fast-paced. Almost every character in the book appeared suspicious which made guessing who the killer was that much more exciting!
I can say with certainty that I'm delighted to have given Miss Marple a second chance.
I'm quite excited to read the rest of the Marple books. Which picks in the series are your favorite? Leave your recommendations down below!
