Reading progress update: I've read 60 out of 294 pages.

Spotlight - Patricia Wentworth

I loved the first 60 pages - this seems to be a winner. Miss Silver again doing one of her patented late entrances, but yes, she has come into the story at this point, helping a young lady in a sticky situation...that would be Dorinda Brown, and it’s good that Maudie gave her her card, because I think Dorinda’s life is about to become ten times worse, thanks to the Saturday invite to a party that seems destined to go nothing but wrong.


oh, and this Marty kid is a vile little snippet; I despise the bratty little excrescence!
