    Chimneys Have Never Been Such Fun

    Well I finished my latest book in the challenge last night and I'm still loving what I read. The Secret of Chimneys is now among my favorite Agatha Christie books.


    There is a new super couple in the Christie world for me. The characters of Anthony Cade and Virginia Revel are so great together. The chemistry they have is amazing and makes me think that Agatha was very much in love at one point in her life. Anthony is that rugged, good looking adventurer we all wish we could meet. Virginia is that witty, fearless woman that you can't help but admire and adore. Together they are perfection and I really hope (though won't hold my breath for) another appearance from them.


    The basic storyline, actually there is not basic storyline, this is one of the most convoluted story lines to date and I loved every moment of it.


    You take everything you want in a mystery story and throw it all together into one beautiful mix. Royals in disguise, murder, memoirs, jewel thief's, secret identities, humongous mansions with secret rooms, codes, and I could go on and on but this book has it all. And it works together. From a lesser author this would not have worked, but under Agatha Christie's skill is all blends perfectly.

    Christie never fails to keep me guessing. Highly entertaining.

    I've inly caught the Agatha Christie bug quite recently. Ive been reading her novels, and short stories, in order of date published. I find her writing fresh & entertaining. Highly recommend her books. She doesn't dissapoint.

    An absolutely supreme book

    I think it is excellent, I loved the plot and the many unexpected turns the mystery took. I found myself suspecting all the wrong people and then suspecting more wrong people. and a really interesting and surprising ending. Well written and fun. Any fans of Agatha Christie will certainly enjoy it.
