September 2015 Book Reminder

In the midst of my work travels this month, somehow I'm still managing to keep up with my reading. Let's hope that continues! And hopefully all of you are staying on top of things too (and enjoying the book choices as much as I've been).

I can't believe I'm typing the word "September" already -- somehow that sounds too late in the year to be coming up so soon. At least, maybe it'll start bringing some relief from this blazing, humid weather. I try every year not to get excited about cool weather too early so that I don't get disappointed by how hot it stays through the "fall" but I'm losing my resolve and starting to wish for it already.

Five Little Pigs

Synopsis: Beautiful Caroline Crale was convicted of poisoning her husband, but just like the nursery rhyme, there were five other “little pigs” who could have done it: Philip Blake (the stockbroker), who went to market; Meredith Blake (the amateur herbalist), who stayed at home; Elsa Greer (the three-time divorcée), who had her roast beef; Cecilia Williams (the devoted governess), who had none; and Angela Warren (the disfigured sister), who cried all the way home.

Sixteen years later, Caroline’s daughter is determined to prove her mother’s innocence, and Poirot just can’t get that nursery rhyme out of his mind.
