Is it anything like the tv adaptation (2013)? I mean, was there in the book the priest crushing on (and ending up with) Molly?

Dane Reads says:

I missed this video somehow but that's okay because now I'm back and there's a heatwave in the UK so it actually feels like the Caribbean

Lyn Webster says:

I listened to half of this and read the second half. The wonderful Emilia Fox does a great job on the audio book. I hadn't remembered how short this novel is! I really enjoyed it all, especially because we see so much of what Miss Marple is thinking, and how bored she is with nothing to investigate! She is very aware that her main interest in life is solving mysteries, whether it be small matters or multiple murders. Christie lays her clues and her traps with as much mastery as ever. I remember the first time I read this, she totally fooled me. A real highlight of Mission Marple. I'm not looking forward to the next couple, have to say.

Liene's Library says:

I feel like a fan of Agatha cuz I eat up the adaptations done by BBC like it's my job, but I've only read one Poirot and some of her non-fic about her time with her hubby on digs…..what I'm saying is, I'm a fake fan =(
educate me, oh my beauteous real fan!

ian smith says:

Christie has a few story concepts that she enjoys repeating. In this instance,she reuses a plot element from the previous Marple book: someone looks over someone else's shoulder,and reacts badly to whatever it is that they can see – which turns out to be not what we originally thought it was.
In the next book,she sort of reuses a concept from Orient Express – and not at all well,imo.

Outi says:

When I started reading Christie, I loved Poirot but felt Miss Marple was a bit boring. The older I get, the more I enjoy Miss Marple and especially her comments about human relationships. Carribean mystery is one of my favourites, too.

Tundra Blue says:

I love A Caribbean Mystery, and I don’t think it gets the love it deserves. Miss Marple might be ancient now, but she still has a mind like a bacon slicer 🥰

Gail Doughty says:

Yeah; I too think this is an excellent Christie. I love how she makes sort of gentle fun of Raymond , his novels, and his complete naivety. Miss Marple is a very canny old lady, who’s very aware of the strength of sexual motives.
I also love the misdirection in this one. As one becomes more and more familiar with Christie’s work, one sees lots of repeated plot devices, but somehow she makes them entertaining almost every time.
I’m living bing your Christie videos.

Eamon Gilligan says:

Love this one too! You make such a good point about it not being as tied to the time in which it's set necessarily, which is also reminiscent of her earlier stories too. Also got a kick out of her attempting to read that modern novel in the beginning 😂.
