While I’m waiting for the arrival of Ms. Lydia, my thoughts have been a wee bit preoccupied. I’m afraid Agatha has tempted me with the delicate undertaking of murder solving.

The telling of this story begins one year after it happened. Recalling the events of that night are the six guests who were sitting at the same table with Rosemary when she drank her last glass of champagne — *“… the loving sister, the long-suffering husband, the devoted secretary, the lovers, the betrayed wife – …..” *Goodreads

Agatha introduces each of the six characters exclusive of the other as we begin to hear-tell of their versions of that night’s events when Rosemary, presumably, commits suicide in front of them. As they’re remembering things, looking back on Rosemary’s death, one of them begins to remember one thing too many ……

You won’t find Poirot or Marple here. Instead we meet Colonel Race. This book originally published in the United Kingdom 1943 as Sparkling Cyanide. In 1945, Sparkling Cyanide came to America as Remembered Death.

Murder always proves herself to be such the bother.
Don’t you think?

The Whisper of God

"Let us be silent, so that we may hear the whisper of God" Ralph Waldo Emerson ~~~ Several years ago, I started writing down all the amazing ways God used my day to day activities, children, family, friends and nature to teach me. The more I wrote, the more I noticed God in my daily life. It became an exercise of the heart and grew my relationship with Christ in a way I had never experienced. I began to hear God whisper to my heart His desires and lessons for me. I hope that reading some of my stories will encourage you stop and listen for His whisper!
