I didn't vote as I don't normally get involved in the Book Clubs because I have so many books waiting to be read already. But I thought this sounded like fun and it didn't cost much. So I hope it's okay to sneak into the Club room without a membership card.

I too really enjoyed it as a light and entertaining read. I love Amelia's no nonsense approach, and her preparedness to make use of her trusty umbrella as a weapon. I thought that Elizabeth Peters did really well with the whole feel of the book and it sounded very English right through, except for one use of the word "fall" where an English writer would have used "autumn", right near the end of the book.

I agree with all the comments above - and had lots of fun reading it.
