Books from the Backlog - The Readaholics and the Poirot Puzzle

Today I'm linking up with Carole from 
Carole's Random Life of Books for Books from the Backlog.  I really enjoy the chance to feature a book that's been hiding in the piles of books for far too long!

Blurb: Agatha Christie is on the book club’s reading list in the latest from the author of The Readaholics and the Falcon Fiasco. This time, Amy-Faye and her friends might have to read between the lines to catch a killer.
Amy-Faye Johnson’s book club, the Readaholics, is engrossed in Murder on the Orient Express, and Poirot’s surprising resolution is stirring up debate. Is the solution remotely realistic? Is justice served by Poirot's decision? Well, the book is fiction after all…

Then, just as Amy-Faye is planning the grand opening of her brother Derek’s pub,

his hot-headed partner is murdered. To keep Derek from being railroaded as a suspect, Amy-Faye and the Readaholics take a page from Poirot and investigate. But as the clues lead to unlikely places, surprising motives, and a multitude of suspects, Amy-Faye and her pals wonder if truth can be just as strange as fiction.

Why It Needs to Come Off the Shelf: I read a later book in the series and absolutely loved it so I have to try one that involves one of my favorite fictional detectives.  


  1. The blurb sounds good, I love books about books and, of course, Hercule Poirot. I'm re-reading all of Agatha Christie currently, no time limit, and I've reached season 11 of the show. I never heard of that series but it looks good, I hope you enjoy it when it finally comes off your shelf !

  2. Great sounding book; I also love that cover!

  3. If feel like I have heard of this series. It sounds good at any rate. :)

  4. Oh my this has such a great title to start with. Very enticing.

  5. Ooh, a new cozy author and series for me!

  6. This sounds great! I just love the name of their book club! I hope you enjoy this one, Katherine!

  7. This sounds like a no-brainer for you! 😀
