It might not be my usual choice of reading matter, but the aforementioned Holmesian works were so good that I went into this with still reasonably high expectations.
The main character, Pippa Parker, is a very well-rounded one (no pun intended...) and easy to identify with (although as a man, I've never actually been eight-and-a-half months pregnant, even if I look it), but the supporting cast are also fully formed with lives of their own. The plot isn't the fast-paced thriller that will leave you gasping for breath by the end, but carries the gentle pace and rhythm you might expect from the small out-of-the-way village the story is set in.
Ultimately, although I wouldn't have picked this off the shelf as an introduction to a new author, it's a satisfying change of pace from one I trust. Yes, I prefer her Holmes efforts, but this will keep the Agatha Christie fans happy for a few hours. I would recommend this clever and funny story to anyone with even a passing interest in the genre.
