The Thirteen Problems
So, I read this one out of order. I don't know why, but the Miss Marple ebook bundle doesn't list this one until the end. I was browsing Goodreads and noticed this one was listed as the second book, so I went ahead and read it lol. That being said, you don't really have to read any of the Miss Marple books in order, aside from reading The Body in the Library prior to reading The Mirror Crack'd From Side to Side. That being said, I loved The Thirteen Problems. It was a collection of short stories within a larger story. Miss Marple attends a dinner party where all the guests tell the story of a mystery and see if anyone can figure out whodunit! :) Of course, there are a lucky thirteen stories! 

At Bertram's Hotel
Miss Marple is on holiday again! Poor Miss Maple, she just can't go anywhere without something chaotic happening around her. While taking a peaceful vacation at the luxurious Bertram's Hotel, a clergyman goes missing...At first, everyone assumes he has just been absent-minded (again) and gotten lost, but the truth is much more sinister. The police must enlist Miss Marple to save the day! 
This one was a bit different than the other Miss Marple books (a murder didn't occur in the first chapter lol). The bank robbery side plot added some enjoyable variety! As much as I love murder mysteries, it was nice to mix things up a bit. :)
