Absent In The Spring - Agatha Christie, Mary Westmacott Full review at: http://thebookshelfgargoyle.wordpress.com/2013/08/16/whats-in-a-name-challenge-absent-in-the-spring/

I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. I was expecting more soppiness, given that the Westmacott collection had been touted as romance novels, but was happy to find not-too-far a departure from Christie's more familiar work. This is an engaging psychological portrait of a self-assured woman, and is presented with humour and some great character studies.
