Just read this and down-loaded it onto my kindle, though it may be a while before I read it as I've got so many to get through and proper books too :)

Have just finished this and relished it, though the last part seemed quite dark compared to the rest, and very true to life.

Thanks for the tip, Abi. :D

Loved this book! It even made travelling on the tube bearable over the past very humid fortnight. Do hope more books are to follow.

Perhaps you could give us a poke about it, Abi, as my aged brain no longer retains such info!! :roll:

I can't wait for the book to hit the bookshelves here!! I just finished reading Murder Most Unladylike today, actually, and enjoyed it most thoroughly. Wells and Wong are such marvellous characters!

Just bought Arsenic for Tea for my Kindle and pre-ordered the latest C J Sansom - Lamentations, to be released for Kindle on amazon.ca February 24 and, I assume about the same time elsewhere on Amazon.

Just finished Arsenic for Tea - absolutely fabulous! I can't wait for First Class Murder which I think comes out sometime in the Autumn. Yeehee!

Actually there seems to be one due out in April and another later in the year. I think she stockpiled them before sending them to the publisher.

I wish I had enjoyed the first one more - it would be nice to have a prolific writer that I liked turning out books at that speed :(

I think the April one is the American edition of MMU, called Murder is Bad Manners... The later in the year one is First Class Murder, which is out on July 7th. Only six months to wait! Sad that you didn't like MMU, cestina, but I suppose we can't all like the same books. :)

Just finished it. I did enjoy it but sometimes it just felt like a cleverly meshed together collection of bits from different books/stock literary bits.

Saw both MMU and AFT in the window of my local Waterstones and got them as an impulse buy. Can't wait to start them!
