Agatha Christie. Susan Donovan. The Matchmaker of Perigord: A Novel.
Barber Guillaume Ladoucette has always enjoyed great success in his tiny village in southwestern France, catering to the tonsorial needs of Amour-sur-Belle's thirty-three inhabitants. But times have changed.
His customers have grown older—and balder. Suddenly there is no longer a call for Guillaume's particular services, and he is forced to make a drastic career change. Since love and companionship are necessary commodities at any age, he becomes Amour-sur-Belle's official matchmaker and intends to unite hearts as ably as he once cut hair. But alas, Guillaume is not nearly as accomplished an agent of amour, as the disastrous results of his initial attempts amply prove, especially when it comes to arranging his own romantic future.
Slow Horses. Mick Herron. The first book in CWA Gold Dagger Award-winning British espionage series starring a team of MI5 agents united by one common bond: They've screwed up royally and will do anything to redeem themselves. The princess is soon befriended by three eccentric widows who invite her to a picnic with all the palace's inhabitants, for which Pooki bakes a pigeon pie.
But when General-Major Bagshot dies after eating said pie, and the coroner finds traces of arsenic in his body, Pooki becomes the 1 suspect in a murder investigation. Princess Alexandrina isn't about to let her faithful servant hang.
tipadpectguno.ga She begins an investigation of her own, and discovers that Hampton Court isn't such a safe place to live after all. The historical accuracy of Stuart's latest book seems questionable, often the unique Victorian characters come off as mere modern day weirdoes and "Mink"--Princess Alexandrina's playful nickname--acts rather liberated for a society woman of the times, a fact that Stuart writes off as Indian eccentricity encouraged by Mink's deceased father.

Despite a few major and minor flaws in believability, Stuart's writing and unique story-telling make "The Pigeon Pie Mystery" an enjoyable romp in the land of Victorian mystery. Sure, I love a dark, chewy, mind-bending book as much as the next person but sometimes when I'm staring down the stack of books on my side table at the end of a long day I just want something light, engrossing, and funny--Stuart provides these qualities in "The Pigeon Pie Mystery" without being superficial or unintelligent in her choices.
A whimsical treat and a delightful excursion!
