    Epub Charles Todd ´ The Murder Stone PDF/EPUB ¼ The Murder PDF/EPUB or ´ murder mobile, stone pdf, The Murder pdf, The Murder Stone eBookThis was my first Charles Todd book I'd gone to a local bookstore in search of the first book in either of Todd's two series but this was all I could find and I have a bit of a mental split in what I thought of this bookOn the one hand I found it really enjoyable to read nicely paced plotting crisp writing and pretty gripping as I struggled to figure out the truth behind all the secrets exposed by Frances Hatton's death I also loved the air of good old fashioned Gothic mysteryromance about it in fact it made me realize that I'm itching to re read some of the classic Gothics I loved so much as a teenAt the same time there was a certain point toward the end where I started to feel like there was a bit too much randomness about this story There are a few scattered chapters from the POV of the heroine's cousins which had a fa

In fact many episodes could have been eliminated without any damage to the plot Even the Murder Stone does little to hold the plot together it's not that important to the novel let alone making it the title The last one third of the novel went
