    As Agatha Christie is my favourite author of all time, I found this mystery, which features her as the sleuth, irresistible All Agatha wants to do is concentrate on writing her new novel, when neighbour Sylvia Ettridge calls to ask for her help Her godson, Robert Sayer, is curate at the vicarage and there has been a murder there Robert s friend, Cecil, who was staying at the vicarage has been found poisoned and Sylvia seems to think that Agatha can solve the crime Agatha is not a willing partici [...]

    Agatha Christie as a detective is an interesting concept and definitely something different for Alison Joseph after her successful series of novels featuring Sister Agnes I enjoyed this well written village mystery in which Agatha becomes reluctantly involved in investigating a poisoning at the vicarage There is a complex web of old scandals, feuds and relationships and Agatha must unravel these before she finds the solution.This is a quick read but I think the author has caught the essence of A [...]

    The conceit of this book is that a youngish Agatha Christie is drawn into a real life murder investigation, because her neighbors assume she will want to be involved because of what she writes She is reluctant, because she knows that her stories are a far different thing from real people But the real people and their personalities draw her in, and in true cozy fashion, she solves the mystery for the detectives What I didn t like I had a hunch about the culprit, but it was only a hunch, because A [...]

    A real cozy village mystery which features Agatha Christie as a character Much against her will Agatha is drawn into investigating a murder at the local vicarage and despite quite a complicated plotline succeeds in unmasking the murderer My main criticism is that there were too many characters for such a short book and, apart from Agatha, didn t really get developed in any depth I got so confused at times that I had to reread previous chapters to find out who was who However it was pleasant easy [...]

    Death stalks the vicarage1923 The Great War is over, but the ghosts of the dead still linger Agatha Christie was one of the lucky ones her husband returned from the conflict and for her, and her local neighbours, life has resumed Agatha is beginning to gain some notoriety for her crime writing and she is busy working on her latest novel But then her neighbour tells her there has been a real murder at the vicarage a young man, Cecil Coates, has been poisoned, and due to Christie s expertise in th [...]

    I was a little leery of this book to start out with Agatha Christie as a detective She s one of my favorite authors, but a detective However, I had no reason to worry since this book was excellent Agatha is a reluctant investigator as she would rather be working on her latest manuscript and the book takes just the right tone The village setting and characters are very enjoyable and the mystery itself was first rate All in all, a great read and I m looking forward to continuing with the series.

    A clever concept and some passages of nice writing Some of the characters, especially the women, are credibly portrayed and developed On the other hand, the narrative became convoluted in places and I share other readers confusion over the continual swapping between first and surnames in addressing characters It was difficult enough keeping the cast clearly in mind without that additional hurdle The cleverness of the concept, however, and the strength of the portrayal of Agatha leave me with no [...]

    An interesting idea Agatha Christie is involved in solving a murder because her neighbours think that she should know all about detection, being a crime writer but it didn t really work for me I found it an easy read but I found it hard to suspend my disbelief.

    I really enjoyed this take on s cozy and I love anything that had to do with Agatha Christie I can t recommend this wonderful little cozy enough.I ve already downloaded book 2 in the series

    An enjoyable cozy murder story where the culprit is found by Agatha Christie

    3.5 starsAfter the Great War Christie s husband, Arthur came home and life has returned to what s now considered normal Christie s writing career is in its early stages but she has gained a bit of notoriety When a visitor to the vicarage is poisoned everyone expects Agatha to rise to the occasion It does her absolutely no good to stress the difference between real life and fiction so she s reluctantly drawn in.There s a plethora of books out now featuring famous historical people, literary and o [...]

    As someone who has never actually read an Agatha Christie novel, I was nevertheless interested in reading this cosy crime novel featuring Agatha Christie herself as the reluctant detective I won t recap the plot as it s all there in the blurb, but it takes place in the village of Sunningdale the early 1920s, when Christie would have been in her early thirties.The sense of time and place was quite immersing I never forgot about the period setting as I have done with some less well written novels [...]

    This was an easy and delightful read, but I was hoping for For a book with Agatha Christie as the detective protagonist, I would have expected a play fair puzzle mystery Unfortunately, Ms Joseph didn t really lay out all the clues yet at the same time, it seemed fairly obvious to me who the murderer was Also, I found the characters a little one dimensional and even at times indistinguishable from one another We are thrown right into the plot on page one and too many characters are introduced to [...]

    Agatha Christie appears as the main character in this murder mystery along with her first husband Archie at a point where their marriage is starting to unravel with Archie spending increasing amounts of time workin in London even at weekends This gives the novel a vague undercurrent of sadness There are optimistic flashes such as the germ of the idea of Miss Marple which is well written and plausible It makes an interesting read and anyone who enjoys Nicola Upson s series of crime novels featur [...]

    1920 s and Agatha Christie has settled in the English countryside with her family writing her next book When she is pulled into a murder at the vicarage Cecil Coates, a young man has been poisoned Due to her successful writing her friends believe she can solve the mystery But can she before another murder takes place and also unravel the secrets that the village is hidingAs a first book in a series it was entertaining, whether there will be character development I wait and see or whether Christ [...]

    This was an interesting book and well written with an interesting plot, but my problem with the book was the fact its main players were real life characters To have such a famous crime writer as a solver of crimes in a fictional setting l found myself saying oh yes well that came from that book of Agatha Christie, which was off putting Yes a great book and l would read another one of her books.

    Hmmmm, it was OK It slid past my eyes and engaged me sufficiently to finish it but it was neither contemporary crime or classic cosy If you want a good example of the author turned detective genre then I d recommend the Josephine Tay mysteries

    Agatha Christie as sleuth may sound like an iffy idea, but the author does a really good job with the idea Well worth a look full review here.

    An enjoyable, if short book featuring Agatha Christie as the main character, who is reluctantly drawn in to investigating a murder at the vicarage

    Perfect Weekend ReadThe plot moves right along and the characters are so believable it makes for a very enjoyable easy read Love the peak into this Agatha s life.

    Sharon Kennedy
    Interesting premise based around Agatha Christie being the one who solves the murders, as she s developing her own novels.

    Total rubbish Not sure what the author was trying to do with this To make Agatha Christie into a detective, to make her Miss Marple Was Alison Joseph trying to rewrite murder at the vicarage If so she did not manage it.Too many characters, I was lost early on to who they all were.I find it difficult to even give the plot as it was so confused and uninteresting Poor Mrs Christie who only wants to write her book is dragged into a murder when well meaning friends decide that as an author of detecti [...]
