    Have fun with the past in Behold, Here's Poison

    I love Georgette Heyer's books. Her "voice" is clever and sharp, and I always learn something about the mores and culture of the era she covers. Her characters are fun and engaging. The plot takes a little concentration to follow, but it's well worth any effort.

    This is the first Georgette Hyer book I read and I loved it. Ou

    This is the first Georgette Hyer book I read and I loved it. Our book club chose this book because we wanted to read an old-fashioned murder mystery with interesting characters and this one delivered. It was pure fun getting to know the characters and their little quirks. Randall was my favorite character ... I can see this being a movie. It was great looking for the clues to see if I could guess the murderer ... alas, I didn't, but I still had fun reading it. If you want a classic English murder mystery with crazy family members, read this book. It will not be my only Georgette Hyer novel ... I'll be reading her in the future and maybe even guessing the murderer next time!

    I Also Recommend:

    The Classic English Country House Murder

    When the irascible and unlovable head of the family is poisoned, his dysfunctional family can't seem to help incriminating themselves. It's up to the despised and sardonic Randall, an "amiable snake", to unravel the tissue of lies woven by his relations.

    Deducing the murderer and the means will challenge the most able mystery buff. Heyer shines with her characteristic gift for sparkling dialogue and period details.

    Fun, fun, fun!

    The character Randall is a gem! His taste in women does not seem to equal his taste in other areas, but you just can't wait for him to reenter the scene. His observations are
    droll and delicious. The plot is interesting, too.
