The Mirror Crack’d from Side to Side, Agatha Christie
I'm always saying, 'I don't like Agatha Christie'. I picked this book up recently and quite enjoyed it. It's a late one, 1962; Miss Marple is old, St Mary Mead is changing fast but the same old detection methods still seem to work. I haven't changed my mind; her books are not a patch on those by Margery Allingham.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, Mary Ann Shaffer
We Couldn’t Leave Dinah, Mary Treadgold
