I have been an Agatha Christie fan since I was a teenager, but until recently had never read one of her most famous books, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd. When I was asked to review a new release of the book I thought it would be a good push to finally read it. I must say though, it feels a bit odd to be reviewing something by the Queen of Crime, and a book that has been voted by the British Crime Writers’ Association as the Best Crime Novel of all Time.

Maizie Albright may no longer be the teen actress star of Julia Pinkerton Teen Detective, nor a celebrity who spiraled her way into a scandal, but her acting skills still come in handy. A private investigator working as a honey trap for Albright Security Solutions (the acronym is regrettable but often appropriate), Maizie is testing out her client’s fears that her husband is a cheater.
Twinkle Twinkle Au Revoir is book two in Heather Weidner’s cozy mystery series Mermaid Bay Christmas Shoppe, and is equally as charming as book one, Sticks and Stones and a Bag of Bones. This reads easily as a standalone if readers are new to the series.

Series books are different, because as I write an entry, e.g., Raining Cats and Cats, the second of my (Maggie Pill’s) current cozy mystery series, additional stories are suggested by events or character traits.
