When you step into the Vintage Cottage antique shop, you can almost picture Agatha Christie — and her characters — waiting for you. You’ll be surrounded by antique furniture and home decor, including vintage artwork, porcelain figurines, lace tablecloths, and crocheted doilies. Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot would feel right at home. So will you.
Agatha Christie is the most widely published author of all time, outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare. Her books have sold more than a billion copies in English and another billion in a hundred foreign languages. She died in 1976, after a prolific career spanning six decades.
Join us to discuss one of Agatha Christie’s classic murder mysteries each month.

Tuesday, April 2, 2019: The Murder of Roger Ackroyd
Voted by the British Crime Writers’ Association as the “Best Crime Novel of all Time”
Hercule Poirot comes out of retirement in one of Agatha Christie’s ten favorite novels, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd.
Roger Ackroyd knew too much. He knew that the woman he loved had poisoned her brutal first husband. He suspected also that someone had been blackmailing her. Then, tragically, came the news that she had taken her own life with an apparent drug overdose.
However the evening post brought Roger one last fatal scrap of information, but before he could finish reading the letter, he was stabbed to death. Luckily one of Roger’s friends and the newest resident to retire to this normally quiet village takes over — none other than Monsieur Hercule Poirot.
Tuesday, May 7, 2019: And Then There Were None

On the island they are cut off from everything but each other and the inescapable shadows of their own past lives. One by one, the guests share the darkest secrets of their wicked pasts. And one by one, they die…
Which among them is the killer and will any of them survive?
