The Girl in the Gatehouse looks intriguing...romance? mystery? both?

I hope to read a classic mystery this year. A Sherlock Holmes. Hope I can make it through it.

I've never read Dorothy Sayers and I really need to add her books to my list to read.

I used to read Agatha Christie when I was in middle school, she was one of my favorites!

Happy reading!
