I got this book months ago and I had been reluctant to pick it up. After reading Murder on the Orient Express (Book review here), I wasn't sure if I wanted to jump back into Agatha Christie but after reading this book my opinion has definitely changed.

This is a collection of short stories of when Miss Marple is asked to solve the crime, I found it to be easy to read because each mystery was short. You don't get the development of crime and the investigation which is something. I enjoyed it, I read this book a lot more quicker than Murder on the Orient Express.

The two short stories that are included in this book, The Dressmaker's Doll and In a Glass Darkly, even though they are included in the book but are not part of Miss Marple mysteries, they were both dark and haunting. I was surprised that Agatha Christie could write something like it.

I do recommend this book to anyone, I think that this book could help you get into reading Agatha Christie as each murder mystery is short.

Hope you are having a lovely day

See you soon
