The Murder at the Vicarage by Agatha Christie 

The Murder at the Vicarage by Agatha Christie; 285 pages

Summary:

Colonel Protheroe is not a popular man. So when he is found dead at the Vicarage, it is hard to know who might have actually pulled the trigger. But Miss Marple is on the case, piecing together who murdered the Colonel. 

My thoughts: 

So far I have read three full length novels by Agatha Christie and a collection of short stories. I still have not been able to figure out whodunnit before the end of the book. After the explanation was given in this book it all felt so obvious and I was a little mad at myself for not seeing it. She does have a way of convincing you that the guilty party is innocent the whole time. However, I am determined to come to the correct conclusion while reading one of her books and I won’t stop reading them until I am able to figure everything out in at least one book!

All in all, it was a good book but it had a tendency to talk in circles at times and Miss Marple can be a frustrating character at times because she doesn’t like to give anything away.
