Murder at the Brightwell by Ashley Weaver - My Thoughts

Murder at the Brightwell: A Mystery - Ashley Weaver

The reason I bought this was because of the cover.  :)  Is it not gorgeous?  It caught my eye immediately and since the blurb sounded rather interesting, I had to have it.  


It's touted as a Christie-esque mystery and I guess it's so, because it concerns a group of people brought together in a confined situation where any of them could be the murderer.  Set at a classy seaside resort in 1930s England, it's got plenty of atmosphere and numerous red herrings to the point where I was honestly never certain who the murderer could have been until near the end.


Amory Ames is a woman of her time and circumstance, I think.  Looked upon with today's eyes, I can see how some might find her a bit.. unassuming... but honestly, we are reading about the 1930s high society in Britain, okay?  She works.  I liked her.  


And I liked her husband Milo, despite his being an absolute jerk more than once.  I think there's much more to him beneath that smooth and suave exterior and hopefully we find out more about him over the other books.  


Anyway, I much enjoyed it and once the price comes down on the others (there are 2 of them and they're $12.99 each for the ebook - too steep for me!) I shall pick them up.  :)
