The Murder at the Vicarage
Miss Marple #1
4 of 5 stars
This was much more enjoyable than the Hercule Poirot book I read a bit ago.
Part of that might have to do with the fact that Miss Marple is not the main character. A Vicar is. A laid back, keep the peace kind of guy. Easy to get along with and to read about.
Miss Marple is just a side character pointing out clues throughout the story. She isn’t overbearing, arrogant and pushy.
Of course, Christie does seem fond of her villains trying to get caught to prove their innocence to cover their guilt. We’ll see if that continues in other books.
