Sissingham Hall - predictable, but not bad
Light read - not bad, but not unexpected. By page 45, I knew the victim, the killer, and the motive. And then, 2 chapters later, the murder actually happened. Whole plot throughout very predictable. Decent character development, but do they all have to be involved in discussing the clues? Definitely a case of too many cooks. Needs more Angela Marchmont involvement, instead of sitting idly by on the sidelines watching people die. Plot so light, clues stand out like neon billboards. No surprises here, folks. Having said that, I’ll probably read more Angela - fun, light read.
I knew very early on who the killer would be before the murder even occurred. Ending felt very thrown together.
