Hoping to make a clean break from a fractured marriage, Agatha Christie boards the Orient Express in disguise. But unlike her famous detective Hercule Poirot, she can't neatly unravel the mysteries she encounters on this fateful journey. And Agatha isn't the only passenger on board with secrets. Her cabinmate Katharine Keeling's first marriage ended in tragedy, propelling her toward a second relationship mired in deceit. Nancy Nelson, newly married but carrying another man's child, is desperate to conceal the pregnancy and teeters on the brink of utter despair. Each woman hides her past from the others, ferociously guarding her secrets. But as the train bound for the Middle East speeds down the track, the parallel courses of their lives shift to intersect - with lasting repercussions.

I liked this book a lot. A nice fictional take, but also adventurous and compelling. I love how she opens and closes with a scene, and also that there aren't any terrible and devastating turns that ruin the characters' lives. I mean, there are some... where you say "oh no, is she going to have a miscarriage?" or that the rotten spouses will twist and manipulate the lives of their exes. It's like that, but as I said, it's not enough to make you want to chuck the book at a wall. Read this one slowly.

Sidenote: interestingly enough, I have never read Agatha Christie's "Murder on the Orient Express", but this book made me more curious to read some of her books. I like the way the Agatha character is guided, or misguided by her gut advice in the voices of her ex and her mother. That was a neat touch.
