Four of my favorite words . . .

“Avon.” “Historical.” “Romance.” “Readers.”

They’re even better when combined into a single phrase . . . and denoting a fabulous new Facebook group!

Miss Marple!

I can’t say I’m a fan of murder mysteries, yet lately I’ve found myself happily engrossed in a great fat volume of Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple stories. What a wonderful character Jane Marple is! So demure, so self-effacing, yet so coolly brilliant and discerning.

She’s definitely one of those characters I’d love to meet in real life. It would be such fun to sit down and have a cuppa with her. :)
