    Nice binge on the Amanda Quick books! I have so many books of hers that I want to read that I could use a binge. Destination Unknown isn’t one of my favorite Christie books but it’s one I need to reread because I don’t remember much about it. Happy September!

      I’m delighted to friend you on Goodreads! And enjoy Arcadia. I have to say, it really helps to read the stage directions, especially in the second act where the “past” and “present” scenes are occuring simultaneously. So if the audiobook doesn’t do so, I would recommend getting a copy of the script so you can follow along.
