The Thin Woman - Ellie Haskell - is back, in the most mischievous, marvelous mystery to hit the marital pike yet. Ellie's mum-in-law Magdalene has moved in permanently and poor Ellie finds herself up to her formerly fat neck in crocheted doilies and cheap statues of Catholic saints. As Magdalene runs her finger over every surface in Merlin's Court (checking, undoubtedly, for dust), Eillie discovers that she isn't the only woman in Chitterdon Fells with the ultimate mother-in-law problem - three others are experiencing the same living hell. One tipsy evening, four imaginary plots to bump off the resident in-laws are hatched and those plots start coming lethally true in real life. Ellie once again plunges into a desperate chase to outwit a killer. Download and start listening now!

    " Dorothy Cannell has a wit that keeps you turning pages for the sheer joy of the smile she brings. She skillfully weaves the primrose paths in twists and turns that keep you wondering what's around the bend. I'm adding her to my list of favorite authors! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 12/25/2013

    " What a witty book! I found this at a used book sale and picked it up based on the great humor I found in the title alone. This book did not disappoint. It was laugh-out-loud funny. Strongly recommend for anyone who has a critical mother-in-law, and a less-than-perfect relationship with her. "

    " Okay I just can't finish this book. I only have a hundred pages left, but I just can't bring myself to read it anymore. It's Misery for me..lol So I am on to read something else on my shelf.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 3/2/2013

    " This book was hilarious!! I loved it. Falling under the "cozy" mystery category, there was more humor and drama than mystery, however. The mystery doesn't really start taking place until the last 70 pages or so, but the book is so good, you won't mind. I highly recommend Dorothy Cannell. "

    " the thin woman is much better - i really didn't like the main character (ellie) in this book. the situations seem overly farcical sometimes. it's not bad but i won't be reading it again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erica | 7/11/2012

    " This was a cute little read. Different from my usual reads. The author's vocab is outstanding. I really enjoyed her interesting choice of words. This wasn't a hilarious novel, but it gave me some chuckles every now and then. Definitely a book club read for housewives. :-) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kendall | 4/18/2012

    " This was one of those books that I read just because it was there. It was all right. Kind of heart warming. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judith | 4/4/2012

    " One of her best. This is a must read for Cannell readers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Krystal | 12/29/2011

    " Not really a "murder" mystery, more of a funny/quirky book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie Powell | 11/17/2011

    " I love the Ellie Haskell books - None of them are as fun as the first in the series, The Thin Woman, but they all are quick, snappy reads. Highly recommend the series. "
