Book #17 was At Bertram’s Hotel, a Miss Marple mystery from Agatha Christie. The back of the book reads:
Miss Jane Marple is enjoying her stay at London’s elegant Bertram’s Hotel. But its impeccable, old-world reputation is tarnished by new blood when someone disreputable checks in.
I’ve always had a special place in my heart for Agatha Christie, despite not actually reading many of her books. In fact, I don’t think I’ve read one since elementary school. There’s just something about her stories that are classic. I listened to this one, and it was more a radio play than a straight reading, which just made it even more sweet and quaint somehow. There’s a very Scooby-Doo like explanation of the events at the end, but it works.
